Made it 0-10 when tailed off at Taunton (3m, soft) last month and has something to prove, including with his jumping; however, prior to that he was a good third when upped in trip at Huntingdon (3m1f, soft) and he could be thereabouts if rediscovering that form.

Six-race maiden; runner-up twice in France and filled the same position at Lingfield (2m3f, heavy) on latest British start; dam's side suggests he may improve for this new trip; less exposed than most of his rivals and warrants respect.

Tailed off in a Class 3 at Ascot last month but successful on either side of that in 3m1f soft-ground handicaps at Plumpton; raised just 4lb for hard-fought latest success; can be up and down and seems to like sharp tracks, so perhaps not the percentage call.

Successful over 2m and 2m3f (off 11lb higher than today) for Gary Moore; dismal form figures (PP00P0) on last two starts for Moore and his four for current yard; chance depends on how well he responds to the first-time visor and new trip.

Won twice during his time with Gary Moore, including narrowly over C&D (good; 11-4; from an 8lb higher mark) last spring; lost his way late last year, and is yet to show any signs of a revival in three starts for Adam West; risky, but easing mark and drying ground could assist.

His jumping has been holding him back over fences this season but he has produced some fair performances; he may be able to improve upon those efforts now back hurdling and he's on a handy mark; won on debut in novice hurdle (2m4f, soft) in March 2022 and he's lightly raced for his age.

Out of a sister to the yard's Gold Cup winner Bobs Worth; failed to make the expected improvement when short odds at Stratford (2m2f; handicap debut) last time but can't be written off yet, given his pedigree and connections; attempts 3m for first time under rules.
