Form & Verdict

Did not jump or travel well at Southwell (2m4f, good; cheekpieces refitted) 11 days ago but finished strongly to snatch victory on the line and is now 2-3 over fences; any lingering juice in the ground here ought to be in his favour, and further progress is possible.

Form & Verdict

Showed the benefit of a wind op when winning over hurdles by 6l at Hereford (2m3f, soft) last month, his second handicap; below that form at Ffos Las recently but remains lightly raced and has some Irish pointing experience to call upon on this chasing debut.

Well beaten in his novices and dropped out tamely on his handicap debut at Wetherby (2m3f, soft); at 7-2 it would appear that better was expected of him, and he's since had wind surgery.

Form & Verdict

Came good over hurdles in first-time cheekpieces last month (yielding ground) and jumped well under very positive ride before holding on well to score on chasing debut at Downpatrick (2m3f, good) a fortnight ago; moves up in trip today and could be very hard to catch around here.

Form & Verdict

Off the mark at 46th attempt, finishing well to cause 150-1 shock at Stratford (3m3f, good to soft) last month; proved that performance was no flash in the pan when running big race in defeat under much more positive ride at Southwell (2m4f, good) recently, and is evidently in very good nick.

J: Robert Dunne

T: Michael Chapman

His first win at the 46th attempt when a 150-1 winner at Stratford (3m3f, good to soft); had luck on his side there with the leader going wrong on the run-in; wouldn't be an obvious one to follow up.

Runner-up three times on slow ground last season (also suited by good) but was pulled up on latest outing two months ago and is now 0-22 over fences; others look stronger.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced for his age and left a disappointing reappearance run a long way behind when very respectable fourth at Chepstow (2m7f, soft) in March; ought to be suited by this tight, left-handed track (has won at Fakenham); no surprise if he features.
