Form & Verdict
Formerly useful; easily took advantage of a reduced mark at Fakenham (2m, soft) last week on debut for new stable; Dylan Johnston's 7lb claim offsets the penalty; should follow up.

Form & Verdict
Consistent sort who ran well off 3lb higher on last appearance; however, badly lacks recent match practice (absent since March 2022) and takes on a couple of last-time-out scorers.

Back from a long absence at Fontwell a month ago (2m1f, good to soft) and he pushed a well-in winner all the way; these softer conditions won't inconvenience him if he can hold his form (usually consistent).

Form & Verdict
2-3 at Fontwell; absent since his easy success at Worcester (2m4f, good) in May; now 9lb higher but Cillin Leonard takes off a handy 5lb; serious player provided he returns in similar form.

Two hurdle wins at about 2m4f last spring, on soft and good; below that level this winter and still 5lb higher than his latest win but he ran up against one who was well ahead of his mark (now 15lb higher) at Plumpton in February and that won't be the case today; on the premises.
