Form & Verdict

Lost his way since winning a 2m4f handicap at Southwell (good) in late 2022 but steadied the ship with a 7l defeat after wind surgery at Wetherby (soft) in January; since transferred to Dan Skelton and that adds to the interest.

Form & Verdict

Second to a subsequent dual bumper winner in an Irish point; hints of winning potential over hurdles - including handicap debut last time - and could be an improver now raised in trip and tongue tied; interesting.

11st 3lb

J: Richard Patrick

T: Clive Boultbee-Brooks

Close second in an Irish point last February and has also shown promise over hurdles this year; ran about as well as could have been expected when well-held third in Ludlow novice (2m, soft) last month and ought to be suited by the move up in trip on this handicap debut.

This longer trip is worth a go after staying on over 2m2f at Newton Abbot 12 days ago (good) but he looks vulnerable to something better handicapped.

Back from a break with respectable fourth at Southwell (2m4f, good) and her following non-completion was over fences; three-time winner in this discipline and hard to dismiss.

My Girl Katie

11st 3lb

J: Conor Ring

T: Grace Harris

Debut Irish point winner (October 2022) who showed some ability over hurdles that season but rather less last term; 20lb below her peak mark but the heavy defeat on latest start makes her hard to support.

Form & Verdict

Only 2lb higher than for last summer's hurdle win over 2m7f at Uttoxeter (good); tailed off in two subsequent runs (cheekpieces added but now removed), the latest over fences; has a big run in him if a wind op has helped.

Five wins over hurdles from 2m to 3m, the first of which was at this track and the latest was in March 2023; below form last term and Tuesday's run at Ffos Las off this career-low mark needs improving on markedly.

Recorded his second hurdle win when scoring over 2m5f here (soft) in January; only 3lb higher than for that clear-cut success but he's failed to repeat the form in three runs since and needs to get back near his best; first win was at 2m7f but this is his first try at this trip.
