Form & Verdict

Has found one too good on his last three starts over hurdles at around this trip but a return to good ground could unlock some untapped potential now switching to handicaps on chase debut; should give a good account if taking to this discipline.

Maiden after 16 starts and she's inconsistent; went close at Musselburgh (2m4f, soft) on her penultimate start but she's pulled up since (jockey felt something amiss) and is not sure to be suited by this drop back in distance; has something to find from out of the weights and others appeal more.

Better known as a chaser nowadays; first Flat start since 2020 when respectable sixth at Carlisle (1m1f, good) last month; needs to build on that performance on this AW debut but may benefit from the step up in trip.

Form & Verdict

Form last August to January commands plenty of respect; however, others appeal more on what he's achieved in two starts since a break, for all that he was settling better with a hood enlisted; the hood is now removed.

Ex Stuart Crawford; placed on five of his 12 runs over hurdles; pulled quite hard before falling at the last on chase debut at Leicester last time (2m1f, soft); addition of a hood should help; interesting.

Form & Verdict

Promising hurdles debut (2m5f, good to soft) but has been soundly beaten twice since over hurdles (2m4f, soft); however, he's a former good-ground Irish point winner and, although the drop in trip is of some concern, there's a good chance he'll improve for this switch to fences on handicap debut.

Disappointing at Carlisle last time but perhaps the soft going didn't suit; prior to that this good-ground point winner was an encouraging fourth on his rules debut at Kelso (2m5f, good to soft; Lavida Adiva third) and he could be in the mix now back on better ground.

Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish 8yo who won two (about 2m in the mud) of his first three starts for Jonjo O'Neill but not so good on three starts since; 2m on good ground gives him something to prove but he could well improve for this switch to fences and he can't be ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Took well to chasing in the autumn/winter, notably when scoring by 9l at Lingfield (2m, good to soft); returned from a break to win a seller over hurdles (2m2f, heavy) in March but got no further than the sixth back over fences the following month; has it to prove off a mark this high but respected nonetheless if his jumping holds up.

Tailed off in Uttoxeter handicap in January last time out but perhaps the heavy ground didn't suit; won a selling handicap hurdle (2m2f, soft) and a handicap chase (2m, good to soft) towards end of last year and he's a leading contender today if back on song.

2m4f winner here (soft) last spring; up with her best last October on her return from a break; well treated on that form but hard to warm to after a couple of heavy defeats over hurdles this year (looked a non stayer over 2m7f latest) and failed to convince she has an aptitude for this game on sole start over fences; can only be watched at present.

Form & Verdict

Inconsistent 10yo whose sole win came over C&D (good to soft) in November 2021; lengthy absence before three runs on heavy going this year, easily best of those when third over 2m4f back here on penultimate start; however, he's not completely ruled out back here from just out of the weights and down in trip with the anticipated better ground likely to suit.

Inconsistent 10yo who has won just one of his 21 starts and his best runs for this yard have come at Hexham; however, he was third of five there last month (2m4f, heavy) behind two in-form rivals on his second start back from a long absence, and if reproducing that promise he should be involved.
