Form & Verdict

C&D winner (heavy, from 4lb lower) in March; twice placed since, including when finishing just ahead of Dillarchie here 17 days ago - a form line which could receive a boost from Better Be Definite in the opener; Joshua Thompson's 7lb claim is helpful from a handicapping perspective.

Form & Verdict

Placed in an Irish point; no impact in his first three attempts under rules (novice hurdles); fared better when upped in trip in first-time cheekpieces for handicap debut at Ayr (3m, good; third to Better Be Definite, who contests the opener) in March; 1lb higher here.

Form & Verdict

Visor on for the first time when winning on only previous course visit (C&D, good; September 2022); given a 109-day break since producing a laboured effort at Catterick (3m1f, soft) in February; this better ground could suit; 2-5 for Emma Smith-Chaston and rates as a possible contender.

Form & Verdict

No stranger to Hexham, or tonight's rival Rumble B; didn't find as much as seemed likely when a weakening fourth (beaten about 8l) over C&D last time; should win here eventually (course form figures 225P54) but arguably a fraction high in the weights at present.

Five-race maiden; demonstrated precious little ability in bumpers and hasn't fared any better for the switch to hurdles (0-3); all set to make handicap debut over what is perhaps a more suitable trip (dam won over 3m).

Form & Verdict

Likely to have had a major say in the outcome but for the late voiding of a race at Newcastle (2m4f, heavy) in March; let down by his hurdling both subsequent starts; tackles a new trip but is capable of being involved from an easing mark, in a newly applied tongue-tie, if hurdling slicker.

Form & Verdict

Fell on hurdles debut at Sedgefield (2m1f maiden) last April; has struggled in both starts this year, finishing a tailed-off last on handicap debut at Catterick (2m3f, beaten 92l); tongue-tie and cheekpieces go on with stamina reserves (over 2m7f) questionable on pedigree.
