11st 13lb

J: Danny McMenamin

T: Chris Grant

Irish point winner who is 0-8 under rules; on a competitive mark; would be a player if in the same form as when third at Musselburgh in December (2m7f, good to soft) but needs to better his other three efforts this season; tongue-tie and cheekpieces go on.

Form & Verdict

Novice hurdle winner who also showed some ability in points; well beaten this spring on first two chase/handicap starts and hasn't looked a natural, but things may click over fences at some stage for this 6yo.

8 yo Mare

OR: 85

Form & Verdict

She's well handicapped on her 2022 novice hurdle form (including on good ground here); remains lightly raced and she looked a threat before fading quickly over C&D this month, but she's now been soundly beaten on each of her last four starts.

Form & Verdict

Down the field/pulled up on his three hurdle starts last autumn (soft/heavy); however, he was third in a good-ground bumper last April and could tap back into that promise now back on better going on chase/handicap debut.

OR: 100

Form & Verdict

Tailed off on last month's chase and handicap debut at Huntingdon (2m7f, good) and has since left Alan King (remains in same ownership); however, this lightly raced 7yo had shown promise previously and could improve for that latest run (his first since January) and this drop back in trip.

Hey Brother

12st 0lb

J: Tom Cannon

T: Alan King

Placed in a bumper and a stayers' maiden hurdle in two previous visits here, though neither the latter nor a Wincanton sixth since rate as infallible proof of his staying 3m; mark for this handicap/chasing debut isn't a gift, and the debuted visor will likely need to provoke improvement.

5 yo Filly

OR: 84

Form & Verdict

She's not easy to fancy judged on her five hurdle runs but they have been on testing ground in the main and she showed some promise in bumpers last summer on good/good to soft going; this lightly raced 5yo is an interesting contender now back on better ground for her chase debut.

Hurdle winner for whom the drop back in trip and return to better ground may be a plus now back over fences; however, her form has become patchy and she hasn't convinced on her last few chase starts.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing on his three runs last season but there were signs of a revival over C&D (good to soft) recently when a fair third; he's won on good ground and could improve for that latest run, which came after a break; the tongue-tie that went back on last time is left off; one to consider.
