Form & Verdict

Fast-improving 5yo who is 3-3 since switched to fences this spring; hiked up another 13lb since this month's Stratford win (2m6f, good; has also won on soft) but drew nicely clear on the run-in there and must be considered here.

Two from two since switched to chasing, winning at Hereford (2m5f) and Warwick (3m); has a useful pedigree and appears likely to improve further; hat-trick looks on the cards.

Form & Verdict

Five wins (two hurdles, three chases) since switching to current stable last summer, the latest over fences at Catterick (2m3f, soft) in March; runner-up off today's mark at Fontwell (2m3f, good) recently, despite not jumping particularly well, and might still be on the upgrade.

Form & Verdict

Dual course winner in summer 2022 (2m5f/2m1f); generally very disappointing since but ran better than eventual 14l defeat might suggest when fifth at Sedgefield (2m3f, soft) in January, and drier ground will be in his favour here; dangerous to ignore.

Form & Verdict

Irish raider who bounced back to form and won 16-runner Tramore handicap hurdle (2m5f, yielding) quite stylishly last month; will be dangerous here if able to transfer that form to fences on this chasing debut.

Pulled up on three of her four hurdling starts since heavy-ground win in November and was just a respectable fourth on recent chasing debut at Fontwell (2m3f, good to soft); others are more persuasive.

Form & Verdict

Struggled on heavy ground last time but opened chasing account with clearcut success at Musselburgh (2m4f, soft; also suited by good) two starts ago and is still quite lightly raced for his age; could have a say.

J: Conor O’Farrell

T: Sandy Thomson

10yo who is lightly raced for his age and travelled well to win by 3l at Musselburgh (2m4f, soft); he's 6lb higher against much tougher opponents today, but he looked promising earlier in his career and is not discounted.

Form & Verdict

Course winner over hurdles in 2022 (2m6f, good); seen only three times in 2023 but signed off with very respectable third over fences here (3m1f, good) last June and resumes on a 4lb lower mark; seems to need good ground.

Form & Verdict

Dual chase winner for Fergal O'Brien in 2020-21 season (2m6f/2m5f) but not seen under rules since the end of that campaign, and unseated rider at start of a point on only subsequent appearance (January 2023); current ability very hard to gauge.
