J: Cillin Leonard

T: Dr Richard Newland & Jamie Insole

Two wins over hurdles but 0-4 chasing; clear of remainder when second at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) in November but pulled up either side of that and it's difficult to know how he'll perform here.

Form & Verdict

Won two handicap chases last May (the first over C&D on soft ground); some fair efforts since, notably when runner-up over C&D in October (soft, third won next time); pulled up after a break last time (2m4f); should fare better back up in trip.

Form & Verdict

On a career-low mark and was a fair third over C&D last time (good); hasn't won for more than two years; could go well in race named after a stable companion, but may need the ground to dry up a bit

J: Jamie Hamilton

T: Mark Walford

No win since scoring over hurdles here (2m4f, Class 2; from 9lb higher) in March 2022; could strip fitter for recent comeback run (Warwick), while the switch back to fences for the first time in 13 months could potentially rekindle a spark; one to consider.

More than two years since last time successful but often runs well and he's dropped to a career-low mark; Cobden booking takes the eye on return from a break.

Won three times over hurdles (2m4f-2m5f) last year and quickly put a duff effort behind him when placed at Catterick (2m3f, soft) in February but will need to find hidden reserves to win a race this competitive.
