Form & Verdict

Three point wins; soft ground possibly to blame when a slightly disappointing favourite on May's chase debut (2m5f) but bolted up on good ground over C&D ten days ago, albeit that was a weak contest; in a deeper race but not yet fully exposed and the one to beat under his penalty (due to race off 9lb higher in the future).

Form & Verdict

3-7 over fences, battling well to score at Fontwell (3m2f, good) last month from a subsequent winner; up 5lb but he pulled a long way clear with the runner-up last time and remains open to further progress over fences; respected with blinkers added.

Form & Verdict

1-8 over fences and mostly running well but he can throw in the odd modest effort and wasn't at his best behind Doctor Foley at Fontwell in May last time out; could well leave that effort behind back today and he needs considering.

Maiden pointer; achieved little in four starts over hurdles and unseated mid-race on handicap/chase debut here ten days ago; makes little appeal.

OR: 94

Form & Verdict

Two handicap chase wins (2m5f/3m2f) here last spring/summer; form tailed off later but took a step back in the right direction at Ffos Las in May, with cheekpieces refitted, and off his lower hurdles mark here (good) last month, without the headgear; back on a good mark and player.

Honey Im Good

11st 10lb

J: Isabel Williams

T: Evan Williams

Ex-pointer who won a hunter chase and two Newton Abbot handicap chases (2m5f/3m2f) last spring/summer but seems to have lost her way since the autumn; getting back on decent ground will probably aid her cause but she still has a lot to prove, and cheekpieces didn't do much for her when used two starts ago.

Form & Verdict

Four chase wins at up to 3m5f, most recently in September 2021; well treated on old form but beaten 34l by Doctor Foley at Fontwell in May and has plenty to find, having not really shone in two runs since.
