Form & Verdict

2lb above his highest winning mark, but goes well here and his recent fourth over 2m4f here was respectable; probably needs more for the win off his current mark but should figure prominently.

OR: 119

Form & Verdict

2-11 over hurdles with both wins coming over 2m (stays further) on good/good to firm; made a solid start to his chasing career when a close second at Ffos Las (2m, god) in May back from a seven-month absence; step back up in trip will not inconvenience him and he's a big player off a 3lb rise.

12st 1lb

J: Jack Tudor

T: David Pipe

Made all at Ffos Las (2m, good to firm) in May, after a break, and has remained in good form since but holds no secrets from the handicapper and would appeal more on good or faster ground.

7 yo Gelding

OR: 112

Form & Verdict

Quite promising novice hurdler last spring/summer but, following a ten-month break, ran very poorly on May's handicap hurdle debut and was beaten 42l on last month's chase debut; back up in trip with a point to prove at present.

T: Charlie Longsdon

Successful hurdle debut over 2m at Southwell (good to soft) last April; has made a race of it in three subsequent starts and his conqueror at Worcester (2m4f, good) last July has gone on to better things; might need this after layoff, though.

Form & Verdict

Four-time chase winner but the most recent of those wins was in July 2022; out of sorts since falling at Newton Abbot nearly a year ago and recent chase return was disappointing; back on a good mark if finding some spark and hard to rule out completely.

Form: P2124- C

Last run: 265 days

W: 11st 10lb

12 yo Gelding

OR: 115

Form & Verdict

2m6f novice hurdle winner for this stable last summer prior to finishing a 21l second back over fences at Fontwell (3m2f, good) in September; needs to improve on a couple of modest efforts in points this year for Hannah Lewis now back under rules over fences and returned to his former stable; likely to prove vulnerable for the win to a less exposed type.

Multiple chase/point winner who easily capitalised upon good opportunity in weak novice hurdle at Stratford (2m6f, good) in August; faces tough task against some promising young rivals here, though.

Form & Verdict

Irish point winner; fourth in a bumper before runner-up in a Taunton maiden hurdle but beaten 39l and 31l on his two starts since (all at around 2m); hooded last time; goes up in trip on handicap/chase debut and is interesting if ready to roll back from a 133-day break with the hood removed.

Irish point winner; fourth in a bumper before finishing runner-up in a C&D maiden (on soft) for which Cawthorne Banker was the disappointing favourite; was entitled to run better than he did at Huntingdon but now goes in a hood and has each-way claims.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 8yo who was mostly consistent over hurdles with form figures of 3324 in handicaps (2m4f-3m); however, having left Olly Murphy for 6,500gns this April, he was pulled up on chase debut (2m5f; 50-1) one month ago returning from lengthy spell on the sidelines; entitled to be all the sharper for that but best watched for the time being.
