Form & Verdict
Won off 9lb higher in January 2022 but hasn't enjoyed much fortune lately; failed to finish three of four chasing starts and matters haven't gone his way since reverting to hurdles (hampered at Warwick and unseated at Worcester when still in touch); not out of this if all goes well.

Form & Verdict
Irish point winner; had little to beat at Kelso last month (2m, good to firm) but his earlier hurdle win has some merit (two subsequent winners behind); opening mark looks reasonable and not hard to envisage him adding another success.

Two novice wins but beaten favourite on handicap debut in June; all hurdle form over 2m but won an Irish point and the handicap defeat suggested he may need a step up in trip; live claims if that's the case.

Won this 12 months ago (confined to mares then) but has achieved little since; needs the application of a tongue-strap to give her a boost.

Three-time hurdle winner; seemingly aided by addition of tongue-tie when making the frame three consecutive times over 2m in June-September but was well beaten after racing too freely here three weeks ago; up in trip today; not the percentage call.

Pulled up in this 12 months ago with a slipping saddle when 11lb higher; some creditable efforts in the meantime and it was a competitive Class 2 in which she struggled at Market Rasen most recently.

Form & Verdict
Two starts for this yard; well beaten in last of six in the first of them but won in ready style at Worcester 11 days ago (2m, good); 6lb rise fair and, with a hurdle record of 2-5, might well be open to progress; shortlisted.
