W: 11st 10lb

7 yo Gelding

OR: 127

Form & Verdict
This is his first run since January 2021 (wind op in interim) and he needs to prove how much ability he retains; however, he was a promising novice hurdler at up to 2m5f in 2020-21 and this half-brother to the very useful staying chaser Cogry has potential now up in trip over fences; returns with stable in fine form and the betting may be informative; a tongue-tie goes on.

Form & Verdict
Won a maiden hurdle here (2m4f, good to soft) in January and seemed fine over 3m on his handicap debut at Doncaster next time; produced an improved performance when second on his recent chase/seasonal debut at Ayr (2m4f, soft) and this lightly raced 6yo could play a leading role.

7 yo Gelding

OR: 111

Form & Verdict
Progressive in handicap hurdles at up to 2m5f last season and he reappeared with a fair third on last month's chase debut at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft); there's every chance he'll stay today's trip and this unexposed 7yo, who wears first-time cheekpieces, is open to improvement over fences.

OR: 125

Form & Verdict
Improved when switched to fences in the spring, including a near-miss at Perth (2m4f, good to soft); returned from a break with a fair fourth at Fairyhouse last month on his first crack at 3m and this 5yo could have more to offer for his good Irish trainer; respected.
