Form & Verdict

Steadily progressive this year since the cheekpieces were added, making all at Doncaster (3m, good to soft) in January, then slightly disappointing on soft ground when a warm favourite at Sedgefield the following month before resuming progress at Plumpton (3m1f, good; left in lead two out) in April back from a break; further improvement required up in class off 6lb higher but he's unexposed and worth considering.

Placed in first two handicaps (2m7f/2m5f) before making virtually all in first-time cheekpieces at Doncaster (3m, good to soft) last month; drew clear of the others with the runner-up there and a recent 5lb rise does not look excessive; high on the list.

Form & Verdict

Ended 2023 on a low note when chasing a hat-trick but he remains pretty unexposed as a stayer and came back to near best when second behind an improving stablemate at Fontwell (3m2f, good) on this month's reappearance, with Will Featherstone's 10lb claim proving a good move; likely to be in the mix again off an unchanged mark.

Record of 3-8 over hurdles and has won his last two, over 2m4f at Worcester (good to soft) and 3m1f at Warwick (good); had a nice bit in hand last time and yet has only been raised 4lb; much respected.

Form & Verdict

Five-time hurdle winner for Milton Harris, twice over C&D; finished a respectable third off 2lb higher at Worcester (2m7f, good; 2l behind Lallygag) this month on just his second start for the stable; hasn't won since September 2022 but he's often placed and enters calculations back on a competitive mark.

Two-time C&D winner; finished a 25l fifth of eight in September on the back of a lengthy absence and has not been sighted again since; on a good mark and has gone well fresh in the past but he has something to prove at present and can only be watched with blinkers now added.

Form & Verdict

Won a handicap hurdle off 3lb lower around this time last year and his follow-up second off this mark in July was solid; didn't have to be at his best when justifying short odds when beating sole rival in a point (3m2f, good) in April back from a break and there's a case to be made for this veteran on his rules return.

Has done well over hurdles since returning from a year out and he's a superior chaser as his respective ratings confirm; on a good mark on form as recent as last year and needs considering; good ground is ideal.

Much better known as a chaser but returned from one-year absence with narrow win at Southwell (2m4f, good) last month and also ran very well when second at Stratford (2m6f, good) 18 days ago; respected.

Form & Verdict

Had been pulled up behind Townhill in April but a revelation since this visor went on, winning both starts this month, latterly at Uttoxeter (3m, good to soft) when comfortably defying a 6lb rise; unsurprisingly hit with a 9lb rise for that but he's won off this high in the past and needs serious consideration in his hat-trick bid in the hope the headgear continues to have a positive effect.

Form & Verdict

Lost his way last season but has got back on track with the addition of a tongue-tie and upped in distance the last twice, including when second at Worcester (2m7f, good) when ridden by Olive Nicholls 12 days ago; unproven beyond 2m7f but should be thereabouts again if his stamina holds out.
