Form & Verdict

0-9 over hurdles but ran well in defeat behind progressive rival at Ffos Las (2m, good to soft) last month and had excuse when beaten favourite on latest outing (bled from the nose); could have untapped potential over 2m4f; major player if all is well here.

Point winner but he's 0-7 over hurdles and has not finished closer than 12l to a winner in this sphere; ran well for a long way at Market Rasen (fourth of ten) when last seen in February and mark continues to fall but others are more convincing; cheekpieces removed.

Won three in a row for Milton Harris when cheekpieces were added last summer but signed off for that trainer with poor performance in the autumn, and inexplicably ran out at sixth flight on recent stable debut.

Form & Verdict

Has modest 2-34 strike-rate over hurdles and is nothing like the force of old but kept on for third at Taunton (2m3f, good) last month, after a break, and has obvious claims off the same mark here.

Easily his best run for this yard was his first when runner-up in a big field at last year's Punchestown festival; hasn't been threatening a return to that form and remains best watched.

Form & Verdict

Still 9lb higher than when opening hurdles account with ready win at Stratford (2m2f, good to soft) last April but, following a ten-month break, was not beaten far when seventh in tactical C&D race in April; a possible if that outing has brought him on.

Placed in two slow-ground maidens last season (2m4f/2m3f) but was soundly beaten in Ffos Las handicap (2m4f, heavy) in March; needs to bounce back here and prove he can handle the quicker surface.

0-10; peak effort over hurdles came in 2021 (2m, good); only seen four times since but showed he retains some ability when fourth at Stratford (2m2f, good) last October; not as good at Market Rasen latest but not written off in first-time tongue-tie.

Came good with clearcut win at Stratford (2m6f, good to firm) in June and was very close second in quite valuable contest at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) the following month; good claims if judged on that evidence but needs to bounce back from a poor run a fortnight ago.

Maintained his momentum when just failing at Market Rasen (2m4f) two starts back and again didn't run badly at Bangor; likely to go well again having won at 2m6f.
