Form & Verdict

Lost his way last season but back on track upped in distance with the addition of a tongue-tie this summer; ran out at the third last at Newton Abbot last month when travelling as well as any but cheekpieces are now added and, with Harry Cobden back in the saddle, he has form claims.

7 yo Gelding

OR: 108

Form & Verdict

Better known as a chaser these days but he's a reliable 7yo who is just as capable over hurdles; has never won off a mark this high and needs to bounce back from a rare lesser effort (jumped poorly) when pulled up in a Worcester chase last month; others preferred.

Form & Verdict

Improving mare; 3-3 since switched to handicaps, latest coming off 8lb lower at Southwell (2m4f, good) last month; takes quite a step up in class and is on a career-high mark but Joe Anderson claims a valuable 3lb and she can't be ruled out with the possibility of more to come.

J: Tom Bellamy

T: Emma Lavelle

Has shown some ability on all starts and won eight-runner race at Fontwell (2m1f, good) by 4l last time on handicap debut; up 5lb and this is a marked step up in trip but she kept on well last time; shortlisted.

OR: 119

Form & Verdict

Three wins in early part of last season, all at 2m on varying ground; showed the benefit of May's reappearance when fourth at Market Rasen (good) last month, upped to this distance, but didn't finish his race off as strongly as some, a mistake two out not helping; considered but still has to prove he's suited by this trip.

Form & Verdict

3-11 over hurdles (2m-2m5f, good); improving 6yo who justified favouritism when winning at Warwick (2m5f, good) in May; up 6lb; not seen to best effect when back over 2m1f at Newton Abbot last month but that was still a respectable effort; not ruled out back up in trip for in-form stable.

W: 11st 5lb

5 yo Gelding

OR: 126

Form & Verdict

Admirable strike-rate under both codes (10-33); pulled up on latest hurdle start in May but that was in a Grade 3 handicap and he's since won on the Flat at Goodwood (1m4f, good); just 1lb above his latest winning hurdle mark and should give another good account.

Mr Freedom

11st 4lb

J: Marc Goldstein

T: Sheena West

Won at Plumpton (2m, soft) in March and, after failing to threaten in the County Hurdle, he was a fair second back at Plumpton last time (2m, good); however, there's a suspicion this will be too competitive.

16/1

Form: U5-5P7

8 yo Gelding

OR: 126

Form & Verdict

Ran well in two competitive 3m handicap hurdles this spring but didn't take to fences on his penultimate start (cheekpieces added) and made an underwhelming return to hurdles (2m3f) ten days ago in the same headgear; down 4lb but has a bit to prove over a trip short of his best.

Form & Verdict

Unexposed 7yo who won a Southwell maiden hurdle by 12l in March 2023 (2m4f, good) but hadn't been seen since until pulling up at 20-1 on last month's return at Hexham; entitled to have improved from that reappearance but this looks competitive and others have more pressing claims.

Useful dual-purpose performer for Gordon Elliott; won over hurdles under Lewis Saunders at Plumpton (2m4f) in May on debut for Olly Murphy and didn't run badly when sixth of eleven on the Flat at Goodwood (2m) last month; handles most ground and a player back up 4lb reverting to hurdles.
