Form & Verdict
Has soft-ground form over hurdles (also won on Flat in Ireland on soft/heavy) but two staying hurdle wins for previous yard came on good to soft and good; had a low-key start to time with this yard, over hurdles and on AW, and not yet shifted enough in the weights to expect better today.

Two 3m1f soft-ground wins at Plumpton this year but he wasn't great back there three weeks ago and he bids to bounce back off what looks a tough mark.

Form & Verdict
Weighted to go well on the pick of his form at about 3m last March and June (both on good; has won on soft) but he hasn't recaptured his best since falling in October; still of interest down in grade.

Just 1-20 over hurdles for Milton Harris/Anthony Charlton and has not been firing on all cylinders since returning from a break in the autumn; starts off for new trainer on a good mark and with conditions to suit but still needs today's headgear switch to perk him up.

Last run: 21 days

W: 12st 0lb

12 yo Gelding

OR: 110

Form & Verdict
Three C&D wins; has won on soft but sometimes misses intended runs on the surface and his Stratford second in October was some way ahead of anything else he's achieved in the last year; up against it on current form.

Form & Verdict
Has benefited from the switch to testing conditions and handicaps this winter, making it four from five when in no serious danger at Hereford (3m1f, good to soft; other wins on heavy) in January; now 15lb higher but good chance he will continue on his merry way.

J: Charlie Deutsch

Shot up the weights after winning four times this season (including over C&D on heavy) and he needs to prove he can cope with his current mark; however, he failed to settle in front before weakening into a well-beaten third at Lingfield last time, and could bounce back at some stage.

Very much at home on testing ground and made it four wins in five starts when never threatened at Hereford in January (3m1f); however, all that came at a cost mark-wise and he was beaten when falling late on at Plumpton.

Versatile regarding trip and ground but sole win came in 2019 and he has lots to prove on his last two runs, pulled up back from an absence in early 2022 and way back after two years off last month.
