Form & Verdict

Unexposed chaser who was runner-up at Ffos Las (2m3f, good) last month but he failed to repeat that form at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good), which was disappointing because his hurdle win came over a staying trip; cheekpieces are now added but overall record stands at 1-17 and others are preferred.

Form & Verdict

Ex-Evan Williams; off the mark for new yard when winning by 10l at Southwell (2m4f, good) last month and he went very close under a penalty there seven days later; now 4lb higher at this new trip but he rallied well last time and has quite a lot of stamina on dam's side; key player.

J: Henry Brooke

Lightly raced chaser who has perked up for headgear, finishing third in cheekpieces on heavy at Bangor and then a close fourth in blinkers at Market Rasen (2m1f, soft); cheekpieces back on and he stays this longer trip; considered.

Form & Verdict

Chase and hurdle winner for Gordon Elliott last summer then sold for £24,000 in the autumn after two below-par runs; still 6lb higher than for last chase win but he returned for new yard with a promising third at Uttoxeter (3m, soft) last month and should benefit from that run; could be dangerous.

11st 12lb

J: Jack Kennedy

T: Gordon Elliott

Took advantage of low hurdles mark to win easily at Limerick in July (2m6f) before fading tamely back over fences at Kilbeggan; ideally wants it softer so any rain welcome and 12lb higher for Limerick win.

Form & Verdict

0-6 in bumpers/hurdles but he's won two of his six starts over fences and was a creditable third at Southwell (3m, good to soft) 24 days ago; still has potential in this sphere and he's respected for in-form yard; wore cheekpieces last time and visor now goes on.

J: Gavin Sheehan

T: Alan King

Lightly raced 7yo who came on a bundle for his first run in 11 months to win with a bit in hand over this far on good ground at Hereford three months ago; has never raced on soft so subsequent three-month break might be put down to him waiting for his ground and, although 12lb higher for this, he may well have more to offer (2-4 over fences).

Form & Verdict

Four-time chase winner at up to 3m5f on a variety of ground; last success was in September 2021 but he's well treated on his old form and showed signs of a revival when sixth of 13 at Uttoxeter (3m, good) last time; wasn't beaten far in that race and has possibilities if he can take another step back in right direction.

Form & Verdict

Won a maiden hurdle here (2m, good to soft) in May 2022 but failed to complete in his next five attempts over hurdles (PUPPP); better signs since switching to fences, finishing fourth of nine over C&D last month, but he needs more to make an impact here.

Form & Verdict

Three-time chase winner (including C&D), but he's been well held over fences and hurdles in last three runs; made a mistake at a crucial stage at Southwell last time but he needs to get right back near his best on this return to fences.

Form & Verdict

Pulled up in his final two runs last year but he got back on track with fourth of ten on reappearance at Warwick (3m, good) last month; was only beaten around 5l in that race and has claims if he can build on that; cheekpieces reapplied.

Good record in the spring and notched a hat-trick around this time last year, latterly off tonight's mark; hasn't been in the same form this time round but woulnd't rule out a revival.
