Form & Verdict

Three-time hurdle winner who recovered from significant jumping error at penultimate fence to make winning chase debut at Hexham (2m4f, good to soft) three weeks ago; can cope with today's drop back in trip and is probably still on a workable mark after recent 4lb rise.

Won three times over hurdles, all at around 2m on good to soft/heavy; good second at Stratford in March (2m, heavy); not so good in better company since (in 2m4f Aintree handicap last time); half-brother to a 2m5f winner over fences; interesting on debut over fences but stamina to prove.

Form & Verdict

3-5 in slow-ground novice hurdles at around 2m last season; drew clear of a useful rival at Hexham last month and connections are evidently keen to switch him to fences for this handicap debut; respected.

Form & Verdict

Dual novice hurdle winner last season (2m, soft); disappointing favourite when only fourth of five on chase/handicap debut at Carlisle (2m, soft) in February and safely held when switched back to hurdling last month but the added hood may help him to settle better here, and he could still have a good future over fences.

Stopped quickly on handicap/chase debut in February, having gone off favourite, after previously winning easily in maiden and novice company over hurdles (2m, soft); faces his toughest test to date but he's dangerously unexposed.

Form & Verdict

Does not help himself by racing far too freely but got his act together over fences towards end of last season, winning easily by 14l at Ayr (2m, good; first-time hood) before a good second over that same C&D on soft; likely to make a bold bid from the front here.

Form & Verdict

Won small-field Plumpton chase (2m1f, good) on last month's stable debut and remains well handicapped on last year's hurdling form but didn't see his race out at Fakenham on latest outing and has become unreliable.
