OR: 89

Form & Verdict
Won two-finisher selling hurdle at Uttoxeter (2m, good; first-time blinkers) last month and wasn't beaten far when fifth of six there on chasing debut three weeks ago; eight of 12 scheduled fences were omitted that day, though, and the form may not be reliable.

Form & Verdict
Lost his way last season and was sold out of this yard for £2,200 in March; ran poorly over 2m7f on last month's debut for Chris Gordon and is now back with Adam Nicol; drops back in trip with huge amount to prove; cheekpieces refitted.

OR: 88

Form & Verdict
Needs to get back on track after an early fall and a disappointing effort on his two appearances last month but is now only 1lb higher than when making all for ready win at Newcastle (2m, good) in February; will be dangerous if back on song.

T: Chris Grant

0-8 over hurdles and today is his first run in this sphere since March 2021; however, this course chase winner was a fair second of five over fences at Musselburgh (2m, good to soft) last month and is not discounted.

Form & Verdict
0-14 over hurdles, and fell at the first on chasing debut in January 2021; didn't run badly when fifth of seven at Worcester (2m, good to soft) last month but others have much more obvious claims; due to revert to chasing here (8.30) last night.

Form & Verdict
0-11 under rules but kept on well for close second behind a next-time-out winner at Southwell (2m, good) last month and is a contender if in similar form again here; 1lb out of the handicap.

Dual good-ground chase winner this season, latterly when making all at Kelso (2m1f) last month; below form at Bangor a fortnight later but no surprise if he bounces back with a good effort here.
