Form & Verdict

Very lightly raced 10yo who began career with four convincing wins (a point, a bumper and two novice hurdles); returned from mammoth absence with heavy defeat over hurdles in January, though, and this month's chasing debut was also disappointing; moves up in trip and competes from 3lb out ot the weights; current ability very hard to gauge.

Very lightly raced 10yo who began career with four convincing wins (a point, a bumper and two novice hurdles); returned from mammoth absence with 41l defeat on handicap hurdle debut in January, though, and it's hard to know what to expect from him on this chasing debut.

10yo who is unbeaten having won a point, bumper and two novice hurdles, all of them easily; he last raced in May 2021 and has a mammoth absence to defy but he's a fascinating contender, all the more so if strong in the market.

Form & Verdict

Very lightly raced 7yo who won a maiden hurdle in spring 2022 and returned from long layoff to score on last month's chase/handicap debut at Uttoxeter (3m, soft); recent 4lb rise does not look excessive, and he could still have significant potential.

Won well at Warwick (2m5f, good) and good second in a 2m4f novice hurdle at Southwell, both in spring 2022; graduates to a handicap, fences and a new trip for this first run since, with his two years off adding to the uncertainty.

Seen only twice since winning 3m handicap hurdle at 2021 Aintree festival, and neither of last season's chasing attempts went well; arrives here with a bit to prove but may yet get his act together over fences.

Won two handicap hurdles in the first half of 2021, including a hot contest at Aintree (3m, good to soft); off 929 days afterwards and understandably looked rusty when 22l third of seven on chasing debut/reappearance at Catterick (2m4f, soft; faded) in October; should build on that and his mark is now 2lb lower than at Aintree.

Point winner who returned from nearly a year off in early 2021 and won two handicap hurdles in a row, including a hot contest at Aintree (3m, good to soft) that April; however, he's unraced since (wind op in meantime) which means he has a mammoth 929-day absence to defy today.

Form & Verdict

Four-time hurdle winner; pulled up on chasing debut in November but fared much better when close second at Stratford (2m6f, good) this month, after a break; takes on some classy opponents here but still considered.

Form & Verdict

Smart hurdler at his best but was well beaten at very short odds in a match race on chasing debut in November and finished behind cosy winner Boombawn on today's terms when back over fences at Warwick (2m4f, good) this month; goes beyond 2m5f for first time today.

Smart hurdler with 4-16 strike-rate; can be excused last month's down-the-field finish in Scottish Champion Hurdle at Ayr (made bad jumping error in early stages) but was well beaten at very short odds in a match race on chasing debut in November and returns to fences with a point to prove.

J: Nico de Boinville

T: Nicky Henderson

Smart 2m hurdler at his best but hasn't quite hit peak form this season, respectable 10l third of five to Lossiemouth in Grade 2 at Cheltenham three months ago; now 3lb lower than for his last handicap success (November 2022) but he was only eighth of ten behind Rubaud 12 months ago and needs to rediscover his spark; perhaps recent wind surgery will give him a boost.
