Form & Verdict

Her sixth of 14 at Taunton (3m, good) last month on her return from 246 days off wasn't without promise and she remains 1lb lower than for her sole success at Southwell (3m, good) in the summer of 2022; shortlisted.

Would have found the ground too soft when pulled up in this last year after a similar break; can be quirky and wore cheekpieces and a visor (together with tongue-tie) when close up on her final two runs; wears just a tongue-tie this time and has a big run in her off this mark.

Form & Verdict

In good form last November, including a Chepstow win (3m, soft), but things haven't panned out for him in three starts this year and although he managed to complete last time, he was still beaten a very long way; best watched for now.

Form & Verdict

0-12 including one start in points and although in the frame in five of his last seven starts, he was beaten a long way into fourth the last twice; the application of a tongue-tie and longer trip need to bring about improvement.

Form & Verdict

Winner of a claiming hurdle in France (2m2f, very soft) in November 2022 but well held in three handicaps over 2m-2m5f since joining this yard; needs to improve for the step up in trip if he is to collect; cheekpieces return (wore them once in France).

French winner (2m2f, very soft) who was under pressure very early when 23l third of eight at Fakenham (2m, soft) in December on second stable start; however, today's longer trip may help and he's not ruled out.

9 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

Didn't take to fences and was having his second start back over hurdles when winning by 7l at Plumpton (3m1f, good) a fortnight ago; wouldn't have won by so far had his nearest pursuer not fallen two out and he is now 7lb higher, but still high on the list based on that performance.

Form & Verdict

2-38 under rules, both wins at Newton Abbot (2m2f, good) in May 2022; placed a few times off higher marks last year and probably needed the run when fourth of seven behind Sandy Brook at Plumpton (3m1f, good) a fortnight ago; now 10lb better off; could go well.

Form & Verdict

0-14 including eight starts in points, but has hinted at some ability as when third of seven behind Sandy Brook at Plumpton (3m1f, good) a fortnight ago on return from 105 days off; 2lb out of the weights so only 6lb better off with the winner, but still holds each-way claims.
