Form & Verdict

Made it four wins since August (including on good to soft) when scoring over C&D (good) last Thursday; that was a conditionals' handicap so he's unpenalised today (due a 7lb rise); leading claims if conditions suit (unproven on soft ground).

There has been the odd fair run over fences, over hurdles and on the Flat this year but he has a patchy profile nowadays and is 6lb out of the handicap here; it's probably best to look elsewhere.

Form & Verdict
Displayed some promise on two of her first three hurdle starts (both 2m, good) and she was running well, albeit with a fair way still to go, when making a very bad mistake three out at Kelso (2m, good to soft) on her recent handicap debut; not ruled out.

0-5 over hurdles; left behind by front pair when third at Newcastle (2m, good) a fortnight ago but that still goes down as an encouraging effort and she could quite plausibly have untapped potential over today's longer trip; tongue-tie on for first time.

Well beaten on his four hurdle starts in Ireland but he's won four times on the Flat this year (1m-1m2f, good) for his new yard and judged on that ability he could be well treated in his first handicap hurdle.

Form & Verdict
He's below his winning mark and he caught the eye of the stewards when keeping on for a near-14l sixth of 14 behind Lucky Lover Boy at Sedgefield (2m1f, good) last time out; he may pose more of a threat today but he's won just one of his 24 hurdle starts and others are more compelling.

held up in rear, outpaced and still plenty to do before 2 out, tenderly handled but stayed on approaching last, short of room and switched sharply right after last, kept on run-in, never on terms (jockey said, regarding running and riding, that her instructions were to ride gelding at the rear of the field with the intention to produce him late as he finds nothing off the bridle and only had one run. jockey added gelding had been keen to post so she decided to drop him right out to settle him and to prevent him from becoming overly competitive early in the race. thereafter, she acknowledged that, having seen the film of the race, she had overdone those tactics and, although she did ask the gelding for his effort jumping the last even though she wasn't making any ground on the leaders on the run to the line, she had become too remote to mount an effective challenge. trainer confirmed jockey instructions but would have liked to see gelding in closer contention at the top of the hill in order to make his run. vet said gelding was one fifth lame on his left hind)

Form & Verdict
Hint of promise at Sedgefield (2m1f, good to soft) in August on third hurdle start, but this modest Flat maiden was soundly beaten on his handicap hurdle debut at Market Rasen (2m2f, good) last time and others appeal more.
