Form & Verdict

Well beaten on Irish point debut in spring 2023 but made promising start to rules career when fourth here (2m2f, good) a fortnight ago, fading out of contention only on the run-in; that form already makes him a leading contender and he has very obvious scope for further progress.

Fairly useful on the Flat for Andrew Balding last year (two 1m4f wins) but showed only minor promise over hurdles for new stable this spring and has a bit to find here.

Form & Verdict

Bumper winner; well beaten at Warwick in May after a break but she was third over C&D (soft) in November and remains unexposed over hurdles; no surprise if she displays the necessary improvement here.

40-1 winner of Southwell bumper (2m, good) last May; had two hurdle runs in the autumn and she shaped with some promise when 5l third of six at Stratford (2m, soft) last time; this return to quicker ground could be a positive and she's open to more progress in this sphere; in the mix back from a break.

Smart on the Flat in 2022; well beaten on both starts in that sphere last year, though, and was safely held when fourth on his first two hurdling attempts (both 2m, good); needs to up his game.

Form & Verdict

Has a basement mark on the Flat but took pretty well to hurdling this spring; lost out by only a nose in run-of-the-mill Fakenham maiden (2m, good) one month ago and has a fighting chance here.
