Form & Verdict

Not the force of old but running well at present and latest third over 3m3f here was in a higher grade; might find this trip shorter than ideal but should again be competitive.

Form & Verdict

Made it 4-8 over fences when good value for his narrow win at Southwell (3m, good to soft) and today's drier ground won't bother him, nor the 4lb rise if as good again; every chance.

Has performed well in some valuable handicaps over the years but has seen little action in recent times and needs to stage a revival; front runs.

Form & Verdict

Very well handicapped on his winning form in 2m4f handicaps at Sandown (good to soft) and Uttoxeter (good) in the spring of 2023; however, his reduced mark is for a reason and others arrive here in better nick.

Form & Verdict

Won three chases last year from 2m4f to 2m5f when the ground was no slower than good to soft; latest return to chasing at Ffos Las was underwhelming, even allowing for the trip of 2m3f.

Better known as a chaser these days, with three of his four wins in that discipline gained last year; returns to hurdling over a trip short of his best and looks vulnerable.

Sole chase success came in a match in October; had wind surgery afterwards and he stopped quickly at Southwell after a lengthy break; others safer.

Form & Verdict

Made it 0-8 over hurdles when well held after an absence but he's a five-time chaser winner and could strip fitter this time; should be on a good mark.

0-7 over hurdles and yet he's a five-time chaser winner, including on his penultimate start in early 2023; his trainer can get them ready after an absence but a return to fences is presumably on the agenda in the not too distant future; at least rated lower in this discipline.
