A narrow winner of this 12 months ago when 4lb lower and only subsequent success has come in a novice; hasn't been running too badly in Ireland but looks vulnerable with top weight.

10st 12lb

J: Jordan Gainford

Two of his three hurdle wins have been gained in Britain, namely at Cartmel (2m1f, good to soft) and Hereford (2m, good); remote eighth in the Martin Pipe at Cheltenham in first-time cheekpieces which are retained.

Form: F-1213

Last run: 12 days

W: 10st 2lb

8 yo Gelding

OR: 100

Form & Verdict

Form figures of 1213 since a tongue-tie joined cheekpieces and he was caught a little out of his ground when third at Stratford latest (2m, good); this is another step up in grade but he likes sharp tracks so Cartmel should be up his alley.

AW winner and successful in a Market Rasen maiden hurdle; back to form on first run for this yard when only tiring late on at Hexham where conditions were heavy; accustomed to softer races than this one and needs the hood to bring him on.

J: Robert Dunne

Put in a dominant display at Market Rasen (2m maiden) last month but he was disappointing under a penalty there two weeks later; may have gone off too hard in that race but he has a patchy record and is now 1-9 over hurdles; risks attached.

Form & Verdict

Up the weights for back-to-back wins at Hexham (2m4f, good) and Kelso (2m, good to soft) but only 4lb higher than for the last of those and unlikely that he gave his running last time; however, now has to bounce back in a competitive, classier race.

Form & Verdict

Looked progressive when winning in this headgear combination at Wetherby on Boxing Day and it was in a tongue-tie/visor combination that he disappointed in his final two runs for Tom Lacey; only a 5yo and could be a good buy at £13,000; not ruled out with the cheekpieces back on.

Disappointing in first-time visor at Lingfield (2m3f, soft) in January and the headgear is retained for this first run since; however, this 5yo looked progressive when winning at Wetherby on Boxing Day (2m3f, soft; in cheekpieces) and is not written off; also effective on good/good to soft.

Bounced back from a couple of average efforts to win with a good bit in hand at Wetherby (2m3f, soft); effectively a stone higher for this as he went up 7lb and Cameron Iles claimed 7lb, but it could be that he's turned a corner; visor replaces cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict

Seven-time hurdle winner (2m-2m3f) when trained by John Mackie, whom he left for £22,000; joined a respected yard and it was over 2m6f here when finishing second last month; won't mind this drop in distance with a good pace on the cards.

Won three times last season, following a mammoth absence, and he's 2lb lower than when last successful (at Musselburgh on New Year's Day); however, his subsequent form hasn't come up to scratch and he needs to improve for last month's reappearance outing at Huntingdon.

T: Jonjo O’Neill

Wasn't beaten far in last year's County but things haven't gone to plan this season; chasing was shelved after four defeats and he then finished last of all when sent back hurdling at Cheltenham five weeks ago; visored on that occasion and now fitted with cheekpieces; plenty to prove.

Doesn't have any great margin for error off this mark but it was a respectable effort in the Swinton last time when not the only one left for dead by the impressive Pickanumber; should be competitive.

Placed twice in a row in the winter (2m3f, good) and returned from a break with fair seventh of 19 at Aintree last month (2m, soft; beaten 6l); however, he needs something extra if he's to land this.

T: Tom Lacey

Exceeded market expectations when eighth in the County Hurdle at Cheltenham last March; has been running well this winter but his sole handicap win came at Cartmel (2m1f, heavy) last July and he's still 6lb higher, so it's likely he has his share of weight; cheekpieces (tried once in 2022, Flat) are refitted.
