Form & Verdict
Useful hurdler; yet fully to convince over fences after three attempts but stuck to his task pretty well when third behind Oxygen over C&D (good to soft) three weeks ago and will be dangerous if his jumping is just a bit more fluent this time; sports first-time cheekpieces.

Improving chaser who has won three of his last four and again impressed with his jumping en route to a clearcut success at Plumpton two weeks ago (2m3f, good); could be progressive enough to deal with the 6lb rise but now tackles some tried-and-trusted handicappers at this loftier level; unquestionably needs his best form yet.

Progressive chaser with a course win on the board and produced his best form yet with a workmanlike display at Sandown (2m4f, good to soft); no reason why he shouldn't have a major say off 3lb higher.

Form & Verdict
Grade 2 novice hurdle winner at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft) just under a year ago, on just his second start under rules; has not kicked on from that success but his last two hurdle runs were very respectable and his winning Irish point form bodes well for his prospects over fences; had wind op last month and is fitted with a tongue-tie today; cheekpieces removed after one use.

Rock My Way

11st 0lb

J: Sam Twiston-Davies

T: Syd Hosie

Won a Grade 2 novice hurdle at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft) last winter and has taken pretty well to fences this term, just making the odd mistake when third of seven at Hereford (2m5f, good to soft) 12 days ago; should stay this far and impossible to discount but he'll probably need a career best.

J: Sam Twiston-Davies

T: Syd Hosie

Irish point winner who won a Grade 2 hurdle at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft) last January; that career stalled a bit but he has scope for fences and there was nothing to knock when runner-up on chase debut at Plumpton (2m3f, soft; first-time tongue-tie, retained); has potential.

Form & Verdict
Useful bumper winner (good to soft) who won three novice hurdles last season (2m3f/2m, soft); held narrow lead before penultimate-fence fall on last month's seasonal/handicap/chase debut at Ascot (2m1f, good to soft) and needs to be taken very seriously.

Form & Verdict
Ex-French 6yo; unplaced all four hurdling starts for Venetia Williams last season but, following a wind op, is 2-2 since switched back to chasing this term, the latter win over C&D (good to soft) three weeks ago; should be fine on today's slower ground and has plenty of scope for further progress.

Looked an exciting prospect (on the back of a wind op) when landing 2m4f handicap chases at Lingfield and Plumpton this winter but he beat only one at Plumpton last time; he remains with potential though and shouldn't be written off by any means.
