Form & Verdict

Ended last season on a low note but, following a wind op, looked back in good nick when third of 13 at Bangor (2m, good) three weeks ago; still on a good mark and still unexposed over this sort of trip; cheekpieces refitted; might be the answer.

Lightly raced 7yo; third off 1lb higher in a big field at Cheltenham (2m, good) in the autumn and he shaped better than the result suggests when seventh of 17 in the Morebattle at Kelso (2m, good to soft; short of room closing stages) four weeks ago; handles the mud; may have more to offer yet.

Ex-Irish mare; just 1-11 over hurdles but bettered low-key stable debut when creditable third at Hexham (2m4f, good; first-time cheekpieces) last month and could easily have more to offer for Dan Skelton.

Improved for cheekpieces in the middle of 2023, and it was with a good deal of authority that he won at Worcester (2m4f, good to soft) in September; swerved right and ran out before halfway at Wincanton last Sunday after a seven-month absence; if that was a one-off he could still have untapped potential and his 7lb claimer rode a winner for the yard earlier in the week.

Has form figures of 211 since the cheekpieces were added and it was with a good deal of authority he won a valuable 2m4f handicap at Worcester (good to soft) in September; 8lb higher now but Thomasina Eyston's claim takes care of most of that; goes well fresh and has obvious claims.

Three wins in early part of last season, the latest when making all in quite valuable 2m handicap here (good); safely held last month, after a layoff, but might have needed that outing and could quite plausibly have untapped potential over this new trip.

She was beginning to look exposed but proved well suited by the big-field scenario when cruising to victory in a mares' handicap at Newbury (2m4f, good to soft) in March; has also won on good ground; she's up 8lb now back against males but is entitled to respect given her Newbury dominance.

T: Jonjo O’Neill

Burdened with a double penalty when behind Smiling Getaway and Lilting Verse last time at Ludlow on soft ground that probably wasn't ideal; had previously finished a clear second behind the well-touted Shanagh Bob at Plumpton (2m4f, good to soft) and, armed with plenty of experience, she could go well at a price.

Behind A Law Of Her Own and slightly disappointing when fourth at Hexham last month but now 5lb lower than when placed in very competitive handicap at Kelso (2m, good to soft) in March; will be fine on today's quicker ground and is probably worth another crack at this sort of trip; can't be ruled out.

Trained in 26-race hurdles career by Milton Harris, best when coming from off the pace to land the Silver Trophy at Chepstow (2m3f, heavy) last month; ran creditably at Plumpton latest but needs to hit a new high on this first attempt beyond 2m6f.

Progressive novice for Charlie Longsdon in early part of last season, winning three times (2m3f-2m4f); has fitness to prove after 224-day absence but it will be interesting to see what Emma Lavelle can do with him; had wind op in March.

Three hurdle wins this season, the latest gained in Class 2 handicap at Worcester (2m4f, good) in June; below form on latest outing (reportedly unsuited by soft ground) and has to concede weight to all his rivals here but can make his presence felt.

1-3 in bumpers, the win on good to soft and below form sole start on soft; absent 320 days before easily winning last month over hurdles at Hereford (2m4f, good) in a maiden and novice; hot favourite in both of those and this handicap debut presents much sterner opposition but he's promising.
