Form & Verdict

Dual 2m4f course winner in 2022 but returned from long absence with two disappointing runs towards end of last season, latterly when well-held fourth here (2m4f, soft) three weeks ago; drops in grade today but is not yet proven over this far and needs to get career back on track.

Form & Verdict

Began chasing career with win at Kelso (2m7f, soft) in October and has largely remained in good form since; lost out only by a short head when clear second over C&D (soft) three weeks ago and has strong claims if handling today's forecast faster ground.

No match for the winner on his return from a break at Newcastle but 2m4f was on the tight side and this is a better trip over which he won at Kelso in October (soft); not ideal being a shade out of the weights.

Form & Verdict

Set to complete hat-trick before last-fence unseat at Plumpton (3m1f, soft) in February and has made the frame on both outings since; left behind by front pair when third at Ffos Las (3m1f, good to soft) last month that was still a good effort, and the first-time blinkers might squeeze out more from him here.

Ended last season with two wins and was unlucky not to complete a hat-trick on his comeback at Plumpton (3m1f, soft), where he held clear lead before unseating rider at final fence; only 2lb higher here and he had a tough assignment behind a major improver at Wincanton last time; respected.

Ended last season with two wins, the latter in this race (good to soft), and was very unlucky not to complete a hat-trick on last month's reappearance outing at Plumpton (3m1f, soft), where he held clear lead before unseating rider at final fence; back in action before 5lb rise takes effect; not yet proven on heavy ground but still commands respect.

Form & Verdict

Pulled up after jumping poorly on chasing debut for Neil Mulholland in September but has made excellent progress over hurdles for new stable since, winning four times along the way; runner-up here (3m2f, soft) on latest outing three weeks ago and it will be interesting to see whether he can find some fluency on this second attempt over fences.

Has won four of his six starts for this yard and never more impressive than last time at Catterick (3m, soft), for all that he beat just two rivals (the runner-up was a penalised last-time-out winner); 6lb rise asks a question but he has to enter the reckoning.

Failed to win during fairly light campaign last season but was placed on consecutive 2m7f starts at Musselburgh (good to soft/soft) in February and those efforts bring him into the equation here.

Dual course winner (2m4f/3m) for new stable last season and made quite a pleasing reappearance when placed at Carlisle in the autumn; in contention before penultimate-fence fall at Kelso (2m5f, good to soft) in November and sure to be suited by the return to this track; one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Thorough stayer who made all to win by 14l over C&D (soft) three weeks ago and is now 7-39 over fences; this is more competitive than the races he's used to contesting, though, and he probably doesn't have much margin for error after recent 5lb rise.

Doncaster last time was a reminder he can throw in the odd poor effort, and he's not defied a triple-digit rating since autumn 2021; all-the-way C&D winner (soft) before now, however, and it was a deeper renewal of this race that he recorded a solid third in last term; player.
