Form & Verdict

0-17 over fences but did very little wrong when second at Hereford (2m5f, soft) in March, and this month's Southwell third (2m4f, good) was perfectly respectable; has a fighting chance if suited by this new trip.

Now 0-16 over fences but he found just a stronger finisher too good at Hereford (2m5f, soft) the last time; cheekpieces removed after wind surgery; likely to go well.

Ex-French 6yo who failed to threaten at Market Rasen (2m3f, soft) latest and is now 0-16; however, his mark continues to fall and he kept on for a good second there (2m1f, good to soft) in January; possibilities if cheekpieces have positive effect (they didn't on sole previous use in France in 2022).

Took a long time to get off the mark over fences but has turned a corner this month, winning over C&D (soft) and at Ffos Las (3m, good); did it in very good style on latter occasion and cannot be ignored in current mood.

Form & Verdict

Chase and hurdle winner for Gordon Elliott in early part of last season and was sold for £24,000 in September after two below-par runs; seems versatile regarding trip/ground but his usual blinkers are missing on this stable debut and he has more to prove than some.

Took advantage of low hurdles mark to win easily at Limerick in July (2m6f) before fading tamely back over fences at Kilbeggan; ideally wants it softer so any rain welcome and 12lb higher for Limerick win.

In fine form over hurdles and fences lately; took advantage of a low hurdles mark to win easily at Limerick last time after winning over fences at Perth; can be relied upon to run his race and a player.

Form & Verdict

Returned from long absence with two underwhelming hurdle runs for new stable this spring but career back on track with clearcut win on chasing debut at Warwick (2m4f, good) a fortnight ago; should cope if the ground stays soft here and could have more to offer over 3m.

J: Harry Skelton

Lightly raced 8yo; placed in points and it was over trips from 2m3f to 2m7f when showing promise in three starts for Gary Moore in late 2021; weak 33-1 chance when beaten about 20l in a Newbury 2m novice on debut for this yard after a mammoth absence and it's questionable whether this is his trip, but the Skelton factor can't be underestimated.

Form & Verdict

Won maiden hurdle for Olly Murphy last spring but matched that level of form in only one of his four handicap hurdles last season, and not much went to plan on his recent stable/chase debut; sports refitted cheekpieces today; others look much less risky.
