Form & Verdict

Sole win over hurdles came at 50-1 in a soft-ground novice in October; respectable efforts this season on both starts since wind surgery, with hood/tongue-tie and cheekpieces tried; blinkers are the preferred headgear here (well beaten on both previous starts in them); down 3lb and not ruled out.

Form & Verdict

Didn't last home from the front when upped to 2m2f at Exeter on stable debut in April but has shaped more encouragingly ridden with a little more restraint the last twice, latest when a close third at Newton Abbot (2m1f, good) 26 days ago off this mark; looks to hold strong claims if repeating the effort.

OR: 94

Form & Verdict

Dual AW winner (2m/1m4f) last winter; won a handicap hurdle from 15lb higher three years ago, but his few efforts over hurdle since leave him with plenty to prove and he could manage only a well-held fifth of nine in a selling hurdle on May's stable debut; others have more pressing claims.

Form & Verdict

Irish point winner; easily best effort for this stable when a close third at Stratford (2m2f, good) in May and although filling the same position at Bangor three days ago, she was beaten 21l and didn't look entirely straightforward; if in the mood, she can figure.

Form & Verdict

Placed in French bumpers last year (good/soft) but did not make much of an impact in four goes over hurdles for this stable, including at 25-1 for last month's handicap debut when fitted with a tongue-tie (removed here); more needed despite the 3lb drop.

8 yo Gelding

OR: 95

Form & Verdict

Four hurdle wins in 2022, none since; has a patchy profile but failing to get involved after a mistake three out at Market Rasen (2m, good) on latest start wasn't a bad effort; has the ability to figure but comes with risks.

Form & Verdict

3m point winner; sole hurdles success (last November) came over 2m but she has yet build on it; didn't appear to last home back up to 2m5f at Ludlow latest, so the return to this trip should be in her favour but she has enough to prove at present despite a 3lb lower mark.

Left clear at final fence to score at Huntingdon (2m, good) in March; minor honours on three consecutive occasions before a lesser effort at Stratford 13 days ago; needs to bounce back from that reverting to hurdles off same mark.

Form & Verdict

Easy winner of weak five-runner hurdle at Fakenham (2m, good to soft) on just her second start; no comparable form, pulled up in Listed event next time and beaten 65l back down in class on latest (December); however, she represents a top stable (runs two) and can't be dismissed on handicap debut on her first start since wind surgery, especially if strong in the market.

Didn't show much here on debut before winning easily at Fakenham (2m, good to soft) when Circle Of Hope was well behind; this is clearly much easier than her latest Listed assignment at Aintree where the ground was heavy; not the easiest to assess and she does have a penalty.

Left October's debut run miles behind with easy win against fellow fillies at Fakenham (2m, good to soft) last month; it remains to be seen where her limitations lie but the strength of that latest form is questionable and Harry Skelton rides stablemate Le Fauve.

Form & Verdict

Runner-up on debut in an Irish point; involved for a long way on her hurdling debut at Cork (3m, yielding) last summer but well beaten on both starts since, latest at Hexham (2m, good) on last month's stable debut back from a ten-month absence; looks the stable's second string based on jockey bookings and has a bit to prove at present.
