Form & Verdict

Went close over C&D (heavy) in February and will also be suited by today's faster ground but finished down the field over hurdles here last month and remains without a win since March 2022; others have more appealing profiles.

Form & Verdict

Generally disappointing since winning novice hurdle in early 2022 but has made the frame in three consecutive chases since cheekpieces were added in March, most recently when third to Boston Joe at Ffos Las (2m, good to soft) this month; 1lb lower here and enters calculations.

Generally disappointing since winning novice hurdle in early 2022, but seemed to respond quite well to first-time cheekpieces when respectable third over fences at Stratford (2m1f, heavy) last month and may be better suited by soft ground.

Veteran who is 2-7 since joining Gary Hanmer in the autumn, the latter win gained at Warwick (2m, good) last month; recent 3lb rise ought to be manageable if he's in the right mood again.

Dual chase winner on good ground in summer 2022 (once over C&D); struggled to cope with heavy ground when returning from long absence over hurdles in March then fell heavily in recent Ffos Las chase won by Boston Joe; current ability hard to gauge.

Dual chase winner on good ground in summer 2022 and probably on a workable mark back over hurdles but has fitness to prove after 578-day absence and looks opposable on today's ground.

Back in excellent nick when coming from off the pace to win comfortably by over 7l at Ffos Las (2m, good to soft) 11 days ago and now 4-11 over fences; 8lb higher here but could still have a bigger performance in him.

Not beaten far when eighth of ten over hurdles at Huntingdon (2m3f, good) last month, after a break, but has not made any significant progress since winning hurdle debut in autumn 2022 and will need to up his game on today's chasing debut; pulled up the only previous time he wore cheekpieces.

0-5 over hurdles but looked suited by drop back to 2m when very respectable third at Wetherby (soft) in March, and connections are evidently keen to switch him to fences; unraced on ground faster than good to soft.

Safely held in two soft-ground handicap hurdles this spring and now 0-5 in that sphere; might be better suited by today's conditions but is 6lb wrong for his chasing debut and needs to take a big step forward.
