Form & Verdict
7-22 over hurdles, the last two wins gained over 2m4f this spring; last month's defeat on slower-than-ideal ground is not viewed harshly and this winning pointer features prominently in calculations on her chasing debut.

Form & Verdict
Got his act together over fences at third attempt, winning quite comfortably by 8l here (2m3f, good) last month; had to settle for third at Bangor (2m1f, good) a few days later but that was still a good effort; major player if suited by today's step up in trip.

Stablemate of Sam Barton; suited by good ground; got up in the final strides at Huntingdon (2m4f) in October when last seen, shaping as if this longer trip will suit; consistent and likely to go well.

7 yo Gelding

OR: 112

Form & Verdict
Looked likely to win three-runner chase at Hexham (2m4f, good) in June but idled on the run-in and was collared; two disappointing runs have followed and he needs a good boost from today's headgear switch (usually wears cheekpieces).

Went chasing in May, starting with two seconds in small fields and that was up with his best form; not so good since (chase score is now 0-6) and he's not proved himself over this far, with a remote third when he returned to hurdling on latest start; reverts to usual cheekpieces after three goes in blinkers; clear second best on form.

Form: -PF232 C BF

Last run: 9 days

W: 11st 7lb

5 yo Gelding

OR: 117

Form & Verdict
Failed to complete first two chases but has made the frame on all three starts since, most recently when clear second in first-time cheekpieces at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) nine days ago; obvious claims if in similar form here.

Reliable sort who was in good form without winning over fences this term until coming in last of four in 2m5f Stratford handicap 35 days ago; the sort to bounce back so he needs considering.
