Form & Verdict

2m hurdle winner last summer; made a promising start to his chase career when third at Hereford (2m5f, good) in November but then appeared unsuited by the drop back to 2m around Fakenham's tight circuit that same month; has something to find with American Gerry judged on last month's C&D return from a break but he's entitled to have improved for that and a further 2lb drop will help.

12st 0lb

J: Ellis Collier

T: Christian Williams

Flat bred but jumped fine bar one early blemish on this month's Hereford chasing debut, just finding the near-2m5f too far; drop in trip and from 0-120 both rate positives; yard had a winner here last week.

Form & Verdict

Good second over C&D 16 days ago ridden by Freddie Gingell, keeping on well; could prove vulnerable for the win back up 3lb but with his chase experience he's likely to be thereabouts.

Form & Verdict

Maiden after 11 starts but went very close over hurdles at Taunton (2m3f, good) in November; not beaten far when showing promise at Ffos Las (2m3f, good to soft) on chase debut in April but never threatened when a well-held third upped to 2m6f at Stratford in May; needs to step up if he's to win this.

J: Conor Ring

T: Evan Williams

Had a near miss over hurdles at Taunton (2m3f, good) in November but he's not gone on from that and was a remote fourth here (2m, heavy) last month; that took his hurdling record to 0-8 and he needs this switch to fences to reinvigorate him; tongue-tie added.

Form & Verdict

Landed a five-timer over hurdles (2m3f-2m4f) for Milton Harris last March-June, ridden by Bradley Harris and the final leg off 5lb higher than today; respectable fourth at Plumpton in December on his second attempt over fences for this stable but off since pulling up over hurdles the following month; needs to be ready to roll back from a break and reverting to fences.

J: Micheal Nolan

T: Syd Hosie

Defied a 2lb lower mark last summer (2m4f, good; fine on softer) and returns to this discipline after two defeats over fences, the latest a respectable effort (beaten 10l); probably in fair form and entitled to run well.

5 yo Gelding

OR: 109

Form & Verdict

Sole win in 11 starts over hurdles was a Wincanton handicap (1m7f, soft; handles good) off 5lb lower but frequently placed and his recent third behind two subsequent winners reads particularly well; could well improve for this switch to fences and, although untried beyond 2m, he's respected.

J: Harry Cobden

T: Paul Nicholls

Only win was quite comfortable in a 1m7f soft-ground handicap at Wincanton last season; perhaps better again when third after a break at Kempton (2m, good) as he wasn't best positioned when the tempo increased; that run can be upgraded and he ran well in this 12 months ago, finishing second to Zucayan.

Form & Verdict

Maiden hurdle winner (2m5f, good) in 2022 but lightly raced since; looked in need of the run when a well-held third at Ludlow (2m4f, soft) in January on second start over fences, returning from 413-day absence; remains with potential but, with another absence to overcome, others appeal more.
