Form & Verdict
Won twice over hurdles in March (2m3f, good/good to soft) and has done well on the Flat since, with the latest of three wins gained in a Class 2 event in September (2m, soft); spoiled his chance by racing far too freely on recent return to hurdling but can be very dangerous off his current mark if/when he settles better.

Some notable Flat efforts at his beloved Goodwood this year, including last time (September); won a competitive hurdle final at Haydock on his final jumps run in April (when 7lb lower) and that was convincing; could easily do well over fences.

Form & Verdict
Flopped badly when warm favourite for last month's chasing debut and is now 0-12 overall but he ran well when second off today's mark over hurdles at Fakenham (2m4f, good) on seasonal debut in October and has possibilities if coping with the drop back in trip.

Form & Verdict
Runner-up in the last four of his five handicaps, most recently in first-time cheekpieces (retained) at Doncaster (2m3f, good) 12 days ago; latest 2lb rise doesn't help but today's trip-and-ground combination should also suit and he ought to be right in the thick of things again.

Both wins (19 starts) came very narrowly, most recently at Kempton last February; had been runner-up at 50-1 in this race on heavy ground the time before; refused to line up once in October and well beaten in early December but an each-way case can be made.

Went close off this mark at Wincanton (1m7f, good) in March but that was in a small field and she failed to match that form in her final run during the spring; hurdles record now stands at 1-15 and she doesn't have a great record when fresh; others preferred.

Form & Verdict
Looked back in good form when second at Hexham (2m, good) in April but was sold out of James Ewart's for £1,000 after a disappointing run the following month; goes without cheekpieces (worn for both wins) on today's stable debut and would appeal more on good ground.

J: Lewis Stones

T: Sam England

Has regressed and he struggled this season on his final three runs for Mark Weatherer; however, he's well handicapped on form as recent as April and perhaps a change of scenery and/or the first-time tongue-tie will ignite some spark; interesting on stable debut, especially if backed.

Form & Verdict
Scored off 3lb lower at Newton Abbot (2m1f, good) in the spring and, following a break, appeared to run well when second of three finishers in tactical C&D event (good to firm) last month; also suited by slower ground; enters calculations.
