Form & Verdict

Minor form in maiden hurdles but he improved for the switch to handicap company over C&D (good) last month, when a ready winner after main challenger had bungled the last; proven experience of this track counts for plenty and a 4lb rise should be fine; bang there.

Form & Verdict

Ran poorly on handicap debut but fitting a tongue-tie has helped in two starts since and she caught the eye travelling strongly for a long way before she hit the front at Warwick (2m5f, good) last month; up 8lb after that win but she's an obvious contender for further improvement.

Inconsistent eight-race maiden but she bounced back with a creditable second with tongue-tie added at Fakenham (2m4f, good) last month; that was behind a well-handicapped rival and has claims if she can back that up.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up in Irish point but best hurdle form at about 2m1f and he finished tired on handicap debut over 2m3f at Carlisle in December; had wind surgery since but he faded on his Hereford return from a break in May and he hasn't fulfilled expectations.

Yet to start bigger than 9-2 for two bumpers and four runs over hurdles but has only finished placed once; is evidently felt capable at this level and maybe wind surgery and the drop in trip will do the trick.

Form & Verdict

Three chase wins between last August and January, at 2m4f and 2m5f on good ground, but he bled from the nose in February and didn't run well (on soft; handles that surface) back from a break last month; still can't rule out back on good ground off lower hurdle mark.

Has not looked back since undergoing wind surgery and it was all fairly straightforward when beating a reliable type at Hereford a month ago (2m5f, good); bumped up 7lb for that but coped with testing ground in France and he makes plenty of appeal.

Placed in his Irish point; it's hard to say whether his three runs over hurdles represent any worthwhile form but this is his handicap debut with a step up in trip.

Took a step forward when third of nine finishers in a 2m handicap here (soft) in April but he couldn't make an impact on good ground at Stratford (2m2f) since and slow going may be needed; cheekpieces on.

Stepped up on his qualifying efforts when third of ten at Bangor on his handicap debut 19 days ago (2m, soft); the first two there were both progressive and the form has a solid look to it; can do better over this extra distance.

Safely held when making the frame in two juvenile hurdles in January (about 44l behind Torneo on latter occasion) and not obviously well treated on this handicap debut but his two promising Flat runs in Ireland last year offer hope he might be capable of better in this sphere.
