Form & Verdict

Has done well for the now-suspended Tony Martin this year; comfortably justified favouritism at Dundalk on most recent AW start, then readily followed up in the Chester Plate (2m2f) on his first attempt beyond 1m4f outside of hurdling; should have more to offer over staying distances; commands respect despite another big rise in the weights.

Has never made the first two in his eight races on Flat turf or seven hurdle races; 3-12 on AW, with slightly better form; unraced beyond 1m4f on Flat but comfortably justified favouritism in 14-runner race over that trip at Dundalk last time and cannot be comfortably dismissed after that.

Failed to show his form over hurdles last time; gained his Flat wins at this venue (Class 6) in January and Ayr (weak Class 5) in May; something to prove at this stronger level.

Fairly useful at up to 1m5f on the Flat; won here in March and creditable third at Ayr most recently; winning hurdler but still has something to prove over 2m under this code.

Form & Verdict

Disappointing at Catterick three weeks ago, failing to build on his placed effort at same venue; inconsistent since last autumn but has become favourably handicapped (11lb below last winning mark) and now has rising star Billy Loughnane up for first time; big run looks plausible.

Form & Verdict

Two-time course winner who finished fourth (off 2lb higher) in this contest 12 months ago; however, holds weak claims on 2024 Flat form and his recent chase win came off an ordinary mark (disappointing in same sphere four days later).

Form & Verdict

Did well to finish third at Hamilton (1m5f) last time, having blown the start; still on a very long losing run and comes with some risk but he holds each-way possibilities, having performed well (close third) off 6lb higher in this race last year on sole 2m attempt.

Form & Verdict

Stablemate of Alphonse Le Grande; scored easily at Epsom (1m4f) last August; close second in Sligo handicap hurdle (2m2f) most recently; stays 2m under this code and acts on AW; interesting with James Doyle a very positive booking.

Form & Verdict

Raced mostly on turf; not particularly solid on 2024 form but may benefit from wearing cheekpieces for the first time in nearly a year; successful three times in this headgear; possibilities off a workable mark, provided he handles the surface (second attempt).

Clear best effort this year when second at Chester (1m4f) three starts ago; the way he shaped over 1m6f last July suggests this new trip is worth exploring; suited by Newcastle, having gained both wins here; could go well off a workable mark.
