Form & Verdict

Placed on all three hurdling starts for Gary Moore in 2021; returned from long absence with two rather underwhelming runs for Dan Skelton towards end of last season but still has plenty of time to come good form new stable, and has some Irish pointing experience to call upon on this chasing debut.

Lightly raced 8yo; placed in points and it was over trips from 2m3f to 2m7f when showing promise in three starts for Gary Moore in late 2021; weak 33-1 chance when beaten about 20l in a Newbury 2m novice on debut for this yard after a mammoth absence and it's questionable whether this is his trip, but the Skelton factor can't be underestimated.

8yo who has been restricted to just the five runs, the three under rules in these colours for Gary Moore; last seen finishing third of 16 in a competitive novice handicap hurdle at Ascot in December 2021 (2m7f, good to soft); asking a lot to win this on the back of such an absence and trainer's brother Harry is on their other one who has inferior form.

Form & Verdict

Dominated from the front and was set for clearcut win before last-fence fall on seasonal/chase debut here (3m, soft) in November; generally disappointing since but his fifth at Ascot (2m5f, good) two starts ago was a good effort and he's back down to a good mark now.

Dominated from the front and was set for clearcut win before last-fence fall on seasonal/chase debut at Warwick (3m, soft) in November but two very disappointing efforts have followed, and an uncontested lead is unlikely here; had another wind op (his third) last month; hooded for first time.

Form & Verdict

Very lightly raced since easy Irish point win in 2021 but returned from long absence with two promising runs in novice hurdles last season (2m/2m1f) and looks very interesting now upped in trip and switched to fences for his handicap debut.

Point winner (3m, good) who was an encouraging fifth on bumper debut at Sandown (2m, soft) in November 2021; absent since soundly beaten over C&D (good to soft) that December but returns with new yard in good form (was with the now-retired Oliver Sherwood); watch betting.

Form & Verdict

0-4 over fences last season but gave pretty good account when second of four at Market Rasen (2m5f, good to soft) in March and has become well handicapped on hurdling form; likely contender.

Bumper and two-time novice hurdle winner (all on good/good to soft) who left last month's chase debut well behind when runner-up at Wetherby (1m7f) last time, on soft ground that may not have been ideal; there can be optimism he'll continue to progress over fences and he could have a big say.

Form & Verdict

Began hurdling career with two wins in 2022-23 season; did not hit top gear during three-race campaign last term and is unraced on ground quicker than good to soft but still has possibilities if aided by first-time cheekpieces on this chasing debut.
