Form & Verdict

Latest of two course wins was over this trip off a 33lb higher mark in July 2022; has become disappointing but gave more encouraging runs when third over 2m5f here last month and when fourth here on Friday (2m5f, good; favourite); could go well.

Won handicap chase over 2m5f here last May (good) and a four-runner Plumpton novice handicap chase in September (good); not so good this year, but 5lb lower than last winning mark; needs to bounce back.

Form & Verdict

Ex-Oliver Greenall; wasn't in the best of form when last seen out (on unsuitable soft ground) late last year; can do better on this ground particularly as 14lb lower than for last win (2m4f on good to firm at Ludlow in 2022).

J: Sean Quinlan

T: Joanne Foster

Left the Greenall and Guerriero stable after some disappointing runs in the summer but, following a break, made quite promising debut for Joanne Foster at Sedgefield (2m3f, soft) last month; needs to build on that performance here but has become well handicapped and the forecast less-testing ground ought to be in his favour.

Nine-time course winner, latest off 2lb lower over this trip in August (good to soft); pulled up on both starts since (Sedgefield); could go well now back here.

J: Conor O’Farrell

T: Miss A M Slack

Cartmel specialist who is returning from a 220-day absence; game winner (by a nose) at the popular Lakes venue last August, before pulling up here in October; most effective over 2m1f and will presumably have other summer objectives; safer to look elsewhere.
