Form & Verdict
Won on his chase debut at Newcastle (2m, heavy) in March and bounced back from lesser run on final start for Lucinda Russell when scoring at Carlisle (2m, soft) last month on first outing for Jimmy Moffatt; this unexposed 6yo is open to further improvement and is firmly in calculations.

Down the field at Ayr (2m, good to soft) in April and sold out of Lucinda Russell's yard for £22,000 in May; however, two starts ago this very lightly raced 6yo won on his chase and handicap debut at Newcastle (2m, heavy) and his new trainer often does well with recruits from other yards.

Very lightly 6yo who improved upon his hurdle form to win on last month's handicap/chase debut at Newcastle (2m, heavy); tackles different ground today and he beat only three rivals last time, but it looked a solid little race and he's in excellent hands to continue to progress.

9yo who is lightly raced for his age and returned from a long absence with a promising second here (2m4f, soft) on last month's stable debut; could be thereabouts if avoiding the dreaded bounce on his second start back.

Runner-up on slow ground at Hexham on first two starts for new stable this season (2m4f/1m7f) and now 2lb lower; needs to bounce back from a below-par run behind Young Buster here a month ago but has run well here in the past and can't be ruled out.

Creditable second twice over 2m since switched to chasing; form dipped here (8l behind Travail D'Orfevre; first run since wind surgery) most recently but this new trip is worth exploring judged on pedigree.

Admirably consistent over hurdles last season and he won here twice in that discipline (2m, good to soft/soft); not bred for fences but he's entitled to respect on this chase debut given his liking for Hexham.

Opened chasing account at third attempt, making all in three-runner handicap over C&D (heavy) last month; the value of that form is open to question (odds-on favourite disappointed) but she's still on a workable mark if judged on hurdling form and still has low mileage.
