Made her breakthrough back from a lengthy absence when landing a Musselburgh handicap (2m4f, soft) last month; up 6lb but she travelled well before forging clear last time and this lightly raced 7yo is open to more improvement; strongly respected.

Five-time winner on Tapeta but he's been out of sorts on AW in two runs for new yard this year; still unexposed over hurdles but his last run in this sphere was in December 2021 and it is not hard to have reservations; reapplied cheekpieces replace a visor.

Placed in two of his three Irish points last spring; 0-5 over hurdles but he shaped with some promise when fifth of 12 in Ayr handicap (2m4f, good to soft) on his return in March; should be sharper this time and he could get involved off a sliding mark.

Justified support in mares' handicap at Ayr (3m, good to soft) last February but she's not easy to predict and and was only eighth of nine at Musselburgh when last seen five months ago; has something to prove after another break and this drop back in trip is not ideal.

Just 1-17 over hurdles but his win came off this mark at Leicester and he had a narrow lead when falling at the last at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in his final run last spring; returns after 13 months off but yard is in decent form and he needs watching in market.

Failed to shine in first three attempts over hurdles; 100-1, but took a step in a positive direction when finishing a weakening third to Bleu D'enfer (stablemate Adveram second) at Ayr (2m3f, heavy); bred to stay 3m; others make more appeal at this point in time.
