Consistent enough but this veteran is on a losing run and hasn't been seen since August; not the percentage play.

Form & Verdict

Both wins have come on soft ground, the handicap over this trip at Hereford in February off 4lb lower; put two modest shows behind him when second at Taunton (2m3f, good) on latest outing, which places him back into serious calculations.

J: Paul O’Brien

T: Harry Derham

Both wins have come on soft ground, the handicap over this trip at Hereford in February off 3lb lower; has hit the buffers on his last two starts, with blinkers doing nothing for him last time (joining the tongue-tie he had been wearing with cheekpieces); wears no equipment this time; others safer.

Second at Wincanton (1m7f) in January and won at Hereford (2m3f) in February; soundly beaten when merely sixth at Kelso three weeks ago but he's better than that and there's a headgear switch today; not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Had 11 months off before pulled up on first two starts last season; however, he's turned things round dramatically with wins at Warwick and Hereford (also about 2m3f, good; acts on soft) this spring, coming from last on first occasion and making all on second; up another 4lb but highly respected as an in-form candidate.

J: Stan Sheppard

T: Tom Lacey

Winner and a close second in first two handicaps last spring; pulled up in first two starts after 11 months off but he turned things round with a narrow win at Warwick (2m3f, good) which would have been more emphatic with cleaner jumps at the last two; bold bid likely despite 4lb rise.

Progressive last season when first and second in his opening two handicaps; pulled up over fences on his return and suffered the same fate back hurdling here last month; on a useful mark if he can get back on track but reservations for now.

OR: 118

Form & Verdict

Ready winner at Bangor (2m3f, soft) in December on third start over hurdles; dam was a 3m2f winner but this 5yo was weakening when he fell two out on 3m2f handicap debut at Warwick (soft; off this mark) in March, in second at the time; tongue tied four starts back and again today; back down in trip, which will seemingly help.

7 yo Mare

OR: 114

Form & Verdict

Chasing last term (three attempts) did not work out; fourth of 14 back over hurdles at Aintree (2m4f, good) nine days ago was respectable, so she's considered for a top yard which won the last two runnings of this race and three of the last seven.

Touchy Feely

T: Nicky Henderson

Won back-to-back mares novices hurdles at up to 2m5f last season; below that level since but there was encouragement in her chase debut effort until falling two out at Wincanton (3m1f, soft) last month; still a bit to prove dropped back in trip.

Form & Verdict

Ex-French 5yo who was pulled up in his first two starts in Britain, given wind surgery in between; much better in C&D handicap (soft) on latest outing, albeit still beaten about 17l in sixth of eight; needs to build on that despite being dropped another 5lb since.
