Form & Verdict

Won by a head on chase/handicap debut at Fontwell (2m2f, good; first-time tongue-tie) in October and was second three consecutive times the following month (2m4f-2m6f); has fitness to prove after 226-day absence but still features prominently in calculations; had wind op in May.

J: Gavin Sheehan

T: Katy Price

Won a weaker renewal of this 12 months ago on good ground; next seen when second at Chepstow this April (2m3f, soft) before unseating mid-race at Cheltenham (12-1; Royale Margaux was third); should be competitive with a clear round this time.

Form & Verdict

Ex-Irish 9yo; has very modest 1-47 strike-rate under all codes but bettered low-key stable debut when close second over hurdles here (2m4f, good; first-time tongue-tie) last month and should be fine back over fences.

A fair winning 3m hurdler but he's been pulled up on both starts in this sphere, latterly in 3m Doncaster handicap 23 days ago; needs to take a significant step forward.

Now only 2lb higher than when winning easily by 21l at Market Rasen (2m1f, good to soft) in April but recent efforts have been underwhelming and others have more persuasive profiles.

No longer the force of old but ran best race for current stable when clear second at Cartmel (2m5f, good) ten days ago and has obvious claims if in similar form here.

5 yo Gelding

OR: 87

Form & Verdict

Pulled up soon after bad jumping error at first fence on chasing debut in November and reverted to hurdling soon afterwards; both runs this season were respectable (3m1f/2m7f) and he'll be fine over today's shorter trip; still only a 5yo and may yet have a future over fences.

0-8 over fences and unraced on ground quicker than good to soft but has made the frame four consecutive times in cheekpieces since March; back up in trip with tongue-tie added today; probably won't be far away.

Unexposed 6yo; well beaten on handicap debut in May but last month's fourth at Fontwell (2m3f, good) was much more encouraging, and further progress is possible on this chasing debut; 3lb wrong.
