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.

Can race keenly but enhanced his excellent strike-rate when holding on at Leicester (1m7f, soft) having been clear at one point; 5lb higher in a better race now (Caoilin Quinn rode last time claiming 3lb); goes on all ground.

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.

0-14 under rules and he has an up-and-down profile; tailed off at Leicester (2m4f, heavy) last time but he was a good second there (1m7f, soft) previously and has run well at up to 3m1f in the past; not written off.

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.

Runner-up in the last three of his four handicaps, most recently behind a next-time-out winner in 13-runner race at Uttoxeter (2m4f, good) four weeks ago; nudged up 2lb for that but will be dangerous if the first-time cheekpieces have any sort of positive effect.

Dug deep to pip progressive rival at Kempton (2m, good to soft) in February and will be fine on the forecast slower ground here, but she was below form on latest outing in May and her record when fresh is not compelling.

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.
