Form & Verdict

Pulled up four times during very disappointing campaign last season but seemingly perked up by change of headgear when second in first-time visor at Ffos Las (3m, good) this month; it's hard to predict whether he'll warm to the task again here but he remains well handicapped on old form.

Form & Verdict

Four-time hurdle winner on good ground since joining Grace Harris in early 2023, most recently last month; doesn't have much margin for error off current mark but posted a sound effort when third at Hereford (3m1f, good) last week and is evidently in good nick.

Returned from break with two fairly respectable runs towards end of last season (2m3f/2m4f) and will be fine over today's longer trip but is nothing like the force of old and has not won since 2021; cheekpieces refitted.

Won over 2m4f here (good) on last summer's handicap debut and was one of two to pull clear of the others when close second over C&D (good to soft) a few weeks later; not yet fully exposed but we haven't seen him since a lesser effort in October; had wind op in March.

Front pair clear when only just failing to add a 2m7f contest here in August to his C&D handicap debut success (good); up another 4lb but still on the upgrade and clearly has stamina to spare at this trip.

Resurgent 11yo who won twice at Plumpton (3m1f, soft) in early part of this year and was very respectable third behind Spitalfield at Ffos Las (3m, good) last month; younger rivals appeal more all the same, though.

Came good over hurdles at sixth attempt, comfortably drawing 6l clear of gambled-on favourite at Southwell (3m, good; first-time cheekpieces) in April; 7lb higher here but could easily have a lot more to offer.

Needs to bounce back from a tame effort on soft ground in February but made very encouraging seasonal/stable/handicap debut when third at Doncaster (3m, good to soft) in December and has possibilities here if aided by first-time cheekpieces.

0-4 for Paul Nicholls then had wind surgery; solid third in Doncaster handicap (good to soft; form has substance) upped to 3m on debut for new stable; should build on that encouraging effort; respected off same mark.

Made it 0-10 when tailed off at Taunton (3m, soft) last month and has something to prove, including with his jumping; however, prior to that he was a good third when upped in trip at Huntingdon (3m1f, soft) and he could be thereabouts if rediscovering that form.

Won easily on the Flat under Brodie Hampson in March but was pulled up after racing far too freely on last month's return to hurdling (2m3f), and will need to settle much better to have any chance of seeing out this longer trip; cheekpieces removed.

J: Miss Brodie Hampson

T: Archie Watson

Wide-margin Flat winner under Brodie Hampson at Doncaster (1m4f, soft) in March but he laboured badly under a penalty after; has had more of a break this time and should be well treated back hurdling even though this career has seen more troughs than peaks since two wins in late 2022.

Dual 2m4f hurdle winner on good ground last summer, latterly here, and was going well in the lead before inexplicably hanging right and running out before penultimate flight at Plumpton (3m1f, good) in April; comes with risk attached but gets another chance off the same mark here and remains unexposed over staying trips; cheekpieces added.

J: Charlie Deutsch

T: Neil Mulholland

His first two handicaps produced wins at Uttoxeter and Worcester (under a 10lb claimer) in summer 2022, both 2m4f on good; ran creditably over C&D (soft) when next seen last November, despite a bad mistake, but tailed off at Ludlow latest which puts a dampener on his prospects.
