Made all for 30l win at Warwick (2m4f, good to soft) on seasonal debut; 7lb rise looks more than manageable, especially when remembering that she won off this mark last season; respected.

J: Stan Sheppard

T: Tom Lacey

Only 1lb higher than the mark off which he won over hurdles; ran okay when second in a small field on his chase debut and failed to give his true running in a decent handicap at Chepstow last time; would go well if back to his best and cheekpieces may help.

Won off only 1lb lower over hurdles; only two finished when runner-up on his chase debut and then struggled at Chepstow, albeit in a decent race; cheekpieces are soon turned to after that; longer trip should at least suit having won a 3m point.

J: Charlie Deutsch

T: Venetia Williams

Signed off for Paul Nicholls with two good-ground hurdle wins in summer 2021 (both 2m5f); could quite plausibly have more to offer over fences for Venetia Williams at some stage but has fitness to prove after 549-day absence and is untested on turf slower than good.

Has run well both starts here, over hurdles and fences (in better company last February); took advantage of a favourable mark at Ffos Las in October (2m, good) but soft ground against him since; cheekpieces no help on final start of last campaign, now refitted; respected at the right level.

Not the force of old but handicapped accordingly and he snapped a losing run on good ground at Ffos Las; only scraped home but just 3lb higher for this and another break (last time was after 115 days away) is probably a good thing; respected.

Hipop Des Ongrais

J: Daryl Jacob

T: Robert Walford

Won handicap hurdle debut last January and struck again in just his second handicap chase at Fontwell in December (both about 2m4f on good), interrupting the winning runs of the second and third on latter occasion; up 8lb on a different surface but he wasn't far behind improvers in a French bumper on officially very soft going; can do better yet for in-form yard.
