Form & Verdict

0-10 over hurdles but was unlucky at Catterick (3m1f, soft) in January, having the race in the bag only to unseat at the last; needs to improve on this month's Hereford (3m1f, good) return from a 95-day break but that's plausible; player down 3lb.

Not yet off the mark but was about to put that right at Catterick (3m1f, soft) in January, having the race in the bag only to unseat at the last; said to have made a respiratory noise when pulled up the following month; considered on the earlier run.

Form & Verdict

Promising effort at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good to soft) in February 2023 but wide-margin defeats in just three subsequent goes and finished a well-held sixth of six on recent chase/handicap debut (first-time cheekpieces now replaced with blinkers); has a bit to prove reverting to hurdles although the step back up in trip will help.

Form & Verdict

Three chase wins last season, the latest gained at Taunton (2m7f, good to soft) in November; has 6lb lower hurdle mark but remains without a win in this discipline after 17 attempts and tends to need his first run back from a break (absent since December); others make more appeal.

Three chase wins this season, the latest gained at Taunton (2m7f, good to soft) last month; held narrow advantage before penultimate-fence fall at Ludlow (3m, good to soft) 16 days ago and might still be improving; not yet proven on heavy ground but handles soft well; respected.

Form & Verdict

Split two next-time-out winners when second on handicap debut at Hereford (2m5f, good) for Jennie Candlish in October; stable debut the following month was underwhelming but she fared a good deal better on Hereford (3m1f, good) reappearance; each-way claims if building on that.

Form & Verdict

Irish point winner who has finished in the frame in two bumpers and four hurdles, including on March's handicap debut at Hexham (2m7f) when appearing not to last home on testing ground; bettered that over 2m4f since, shaping as though she'd be worth another go at this distance given a sounder surface; interesting off 2lb lower.

Some promise in points; not strong form when third at Sedgefield (2m4f, soft) and he was beaten when falling after a more prominent ride at Hereford (good) in January; still one of the more talented members of this field and should be capable of better still.
