Form & Verdict
Stoutly bred 6yo who made a bright start when scoring by 18l at Exeter (2m2f, soft; RPR 132) in February; 10-11 favourite there the following month and was mounting a serious challenge after the last hurdle but he hang badly left in the closing stages and had to settle for third of four; has not been seen since but he still has plenty of potential and is respected off what looks a fair mark on his handicap debut.

Easy winner of 2m4f novice here (heavy) last February; 0-5 since but he went very close at Fontwell (2m3f, soft) on his seasonal return three weeks ago; nudged up 3lb but he pulled clear with an improver last time and should be in the thick of things again on this step back up in trip.

J: Charlie Deutsch

T: Venetia Williams

Easy winner of a Ffos Las novice (2m4f, heavy) last February but he's not really kicked on from that and was well below form in an Exeter handicap in his final run last season; bit to prove after 227 days off and he needs more improvement.

Form & Verdict
Point/bumper winner who won on his hurdling debut at Leicester (2m4f, soft) in February; pulled up at Haydock in final run last term but that was a tough assignment in a Grade 2 event and this lightly raced 7yo is back in calmer waters for this handicap debut; interesting to see how he figures in market after 279 days off.

Form & Verdict
Useful staying chaser who won off 10lb higher over fences at Sandown (3m, heavy) in January but he's not made a serious impact since and was fourth of six back over hurdles here on his recent return; should be sharper this time but he takes on some unexposed types and others are preferred.

Showed clear promise in two Irish points in 2020 and he kicked off his rules career with comfortable success in novice hurdle at Worcester (2m7f, good) last May; returns from another lengthy absence but he put in a professional display for that 15l win last time and could have a lot more to offer in handicaps this season; big player.
