Form & Verdict

Dual Flat winner who has been progressive in his four hurdle runs this spring and was second of 13 in Southwell handicap (2m, good) last time; did clear best of the closers behind a front-running winner in that race and he's only 1lb higher here; respected.

Form & Verdict

Fairly useful Flat-racer who has come good over hurdles with her handicap wins at Southwell and Huntingdon (both at 2m on good) last month; up another 4lb but she's on a roll and should have more to offer for Nicky Henderson; key player.

Flat winner on good ground and was pretty useful; had three runs over hurdles, much the best when fourth at Hereford (2m, soft); she was beaten 23l but the front two have since won good handicaps at Sandown and Cheltenham; has her ground for handicap debut and she should be very well treated given Flat ability.

Form & Verdict

Irish point winner; sold out of Stuart Crawford's stable for 16,000gns in July 2023; still unexposed in handicaps and ran a promising race returning to better ground when a close third at Stratford (2m2f, good) last month; only 1lb higher here and he's not ruled out.

Best efforts were in bumpers and he's not finished closer than 15l to a winner in four hurdle runs; this drop back to 2m could help but he needs a transformation in his second handicap.

Form & Verdict

0-6 on the Flat but he made it third-time lucky over hurdles when justifying support in a Huntingdon maiden (2m, good) last month; has more to do now switched to a handicap but that was a stylish win last time and he has plenty of scope for further progress; interesting contender.

Went backwards on the Flat in Ireland prior to being sold for 25,000gns and gelded; is entitled to have come on for last month's hurdling debut (ordinary Fakenham maiden against his own age group back from six months off) but needs to improve.

OR: 106

Form & Verdict

Pulled up in both points and he's 0-7 under rules; finished runner-up in four of his six hurdle runs but was only eighth on handicap debut at Exeter (2m5f, good to soft) last April and has not been seen since; dropped 5lb but he's probably best watched after 444 days off.

Form & Verdict

Quite useful on the Flat in Ireland in 2021 and was second to smart rival in juvenile hurdle towards end of that year; well treated on that form but he's been disappointing since and made it 0-9 over hurdles when pulled up on stable debut in March; now returns to a handicap but has plenty to prove after another break.

Form & Verdict

Narrow winner off 7lb higher over fences at Warwick (2m, soft) last March; has not matched that form since but he returned to hurdling with a second in C&D novice (good) three weeks ago; was allowed to dictate in that race but that was more like it and he's in the mix back in a handicap; one of two runners for yard.

Yet to build upon last year's winning chase debut at Warwick (2m, soft) and was only fourth best on merit when well-held third at Musselburgh (2m, soft) last month; now 3lb below his winning mark but needs to up his game.
