Form & Verdict

Just behind Court Master at Cheltenham in April when again below the form he showed in winning over 3m1f at Ludlow last season; on a good mark if he can get back on track and he was made favourite for a voided race last time.

Form & Verdict

Only this year returned from a long absence and showed he was no back number with an 11l third at Aintree two weeks ago (3m1f, good); stamina for quite this far is by no means assured but he can't be ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Not as good as he was but doesn't arrive here in bad form and he should have finished closer (beaten 7l) last time at Southwell (3m, good); this is a higher grade but he has each-way hopes.

J: Beau Morgan

T: Daisy Hitchins

Left previous yard for 5,000gns; ran quite well here on soft last month given he wants better ground and ran a respectable race when a 15l third at Wincanton on Sunday; surely has to pull out more again here to be a win contender.

Form & Verdict

Solid record at about 3m and improved for the step up to 3m5f when winning Fakenham's Norfolk National (good; effective on soft) by more than 5l after travelling strongly throughout; effectively 13lb higher now as he's gone up 6lb and they claimed 7lb last time, so that asks a question of him.

11st 6lb

J: Micheal Nolan

T: Philip Hobbs & Johnson White

Inconsistent in recent seasons and his stamina for 3m6f on heavy ground is not copper-bottomed but he runs this track well and is well handicapped on form as recent as the autumn; can't be ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Dropped out for a remote finish last time at Cheltenham but that was after a break and he was only 2l away when fifth there the run before (October; 3m1f, good); strong stayer on a handy mark but he does need the ground to remain good.

J: Richie McLernon

T: Neil Mulholland

0-5 since joining Neil Mulholland last spring but his close fifth of 19 on the Old course here (3m1f, good) in October was a good performance; could have a say if fully tuned up after 173-day break; best on good ground.

As good as ever last summer, winning twice over 2m4f (good to soft/soft); has won over 3m2f in the past (hurdling) but has performed poorly on either side of a break and he's knocking on now.

In 2023 he won the Edinburgh National and was fifth in the Scottish; those were his last efforts of any note but the form is in the book (and off higher marks) if he can stage a revival.

J: Jonathan Burke

T: Alastair Ralph

Won last year's Edinburgh National and later finished fifth in the Scottish National (4m, good); has clear wellbeing questions to answer after last season's two runs amounted to nothing; if he could stage a revival he's effective at 3m for all that he stays so well.
