Form & Verdict

A maiden after 15 starts but scores good marks for his consistency over hurdles and fences over the last 14 months or so; gave good account when second (albeit well held in the end) at Exeter (3m, heavy) five weeks ago and will be favoured by the forecast rain here; one to consider.

Made the frame on first three starts this season, most recently when close fourth on chasing debut at Leicester (2m6f, soft) in January; flopped badly at Hereford the following month and now 0-14 but has good claims off current mark if back on song.

A maiden after 13 starts but has made the frame on all three appearances this season, most recently when close fourth of ten on chasing debut at Leicester (2m6f, soft) three weeks ago; still unexposed over 3m+; probably won't be far away.

Form & Verdict

Came good over fences at third attempt, with clearcut win from the front at Taunton (2m5f, soft) in March; 8lb rise asks quite a lot of her here but the longer trip might unlock further improvement and she should be fine if the ground stays good.

Suffered significant dip in form last season but returned from ten-week break with 5l win over C&D (good to soft) last month and remains well handicapped after a 3lb rise; will have something to prove if the ground turns soft but, otherwise, has strong claims.

Versatile mare who collected four wins (two hurdles, two chases) during very productive spell in early of last season; on a fairly tough mark now but will still find this race much easier than the Listed hurdle she contested on last month's reappearance outing; suited by good and soft ground.

Form & Verdict

Had rather mixed record over hurdles last season but her clearcut win at Leicester (2m4f, soft) in January was a good performance, and her Irish point dead-heat in 2021 bodes well for her prospects on this chasing debut; unraced on ground quicker than good to soft.

Always going well and won with authority on second start for this yard at Leicester (2m4f, soft); didn't appear to be on her game when well held off this 6lb higher mark at Market Rasen and she's better than that; having first run beyond 2m5f under rules but she's a 3m point winner.

Recovered well from significant jumping error to finish second at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft) on chasing debut for Lucinda Russell in November; left that yard after two lesser efforts but ran well for a long way before weakening into fifth on last month's stable debut at Cheltenham (3m1f, good), and will appreciate today's big drop in grade; might be the answer.

She was perhaps fading when badly hampered by a faller three out at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft) three weeks ago; however, prior to that she was a promising second on her chase/stable debut at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft) and is in calculations on that form; runner-up in a point on soft ground.
