Form & Verdict

Didn't really fire when well backed at Hereford last month but looked as good as ever when second to progressive rival at Ludlow (2m5f, good) two starts ago and has good claims if judged on that performance.

Proved he can go well fresh when winning on stable debut at Bangor (2m3f, good) just over a year ago but was out of form when last seen in the autumn and comes with a lot more risk than some.

Ex-Irish 6yo who opened his account at Bangor (2m3f) on debut for new yard; nowhere near that form in four runs (hurdles/fences) since and overall record remains far from consistent.

Form & Verdict

Has lost his way since winning off today's mark at Uttoxeter (2m, heavy) in December and is not sure to be suited by the much quicker conditions here; had another wind op (his second) after latest run; others look safer.

Returned to form with two good efforts this spring, latterly when staying on for close fourth of 15 in today's headgear combination at Ffos Las (2m4f, good); can make his presence felt again.

Dual 2m hurdle winner; returned from layoff with encouraging fourth at Hereford (2m3f, good to soft) in April and remains unexposed over this sort of trip; contender if last month's nasty fall at Ludlow left no mental scars.

T: Jonjo O’Neill

First foal of a useful 2m2f-2m4f chase winning half-sister to high-class hurdle/chase winner Dynaste; well backed into 7-2 at Wetherby (2m, soft) last month and he caught the eye with his rallying third behind an odds-on rival; should know more this time and he looks a likely improver on his second start.

Form & Verdict

Benefited from change of headgear when causing 22-1 surprise at Fontwell (2m3f, good; first-time visor) this month; it's hard to predict whether he'll be in the right mood again here but a 5lb rise is manageable.
