Form & Verdict

A five-time winner at this track (2m1f-2m2f), all on good ground and most recently on last month's hurdles return off 4lb lower; although he's never won off a mark this high, he was good value for the margin of that win and he has to be respected around here.

Fair Flat maiden who got off the mark on stable/hurdle debut at Taunton (2m, good to soft) in December and made a solid start to handicaps this year, going close at Taunton then comfortably accounting for a warm favourite at Hereford (2m, good) last month; in a deeper race here but he's an improving 4yo and the 5lb rise might not be enough to anchor him.

Landed a good prize at Market Rasen (2m, good) in July 2022; well held last May on sole completed start in 2023, having been given a fifth wind operation, and was weak in the market for a voided race at Stratford just under a year ago; has plenty to prove returning from an absence.

Form & Verdict

3-10 over hurdles (2m-2m5f, good); improving 6yo who made a good start for this stable when a close fifth at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) in April and duly built on that when justifying favouritism at Warwick (2m5f) the following month, both times ridden by Megan Bevan; drop back to 2m shouldn't be too much of an issue and he's a big player off 4lb higher.

Goes well on good ground; shaped encouragingly on first outing for current yard when a close fifth of 15 at Cheltenham (2m4f) last month, still in front approaching the last; may improve for the run, his first for six months; might be the answer with his stable going well.

Didn't appear to handle the deep ground when pulled up in a conditions hurdle in France last month but had shown ability when placed on both starts in Britain late last year (2m) behind Triumph Hurdle third Salver, albeit beaten 28l in a Chepstow Grade 2 in December; doesn't look too badly treated for his handicap debut and, with the possibility of the better ground likely to suit, he could play a part.

Looked a nice prospect when winning at Lingfield (2m, good to soft) in February last year; outclassed in Grade 2 at Kempton 11 days later and likely needed March's return from nearly a year away when down the field on handicap debut at Taunton (2m3f, soft); better can be expected with that run behind him but he has a bit to prove at present.

Bettered low-key hurdling debut when winning Lingfield novice (2m, good to soft) in February 2023; struggled in Kempton Grade 2 a few days later and not seen again since but remains unexposed and today's step up in trip ought to suit; interesting.

Won from the front in his first two handicap hurdles (both 2m; good and soft ground) but his two subsequent efforts have been worrying, stopping quickly on both occasions; admittedly, he might not have stayed on the step up to 2m5f on last month's reappearance; 3lb drop will help as will the return to to 2m but others make more appeal.
