Form & Verdict
Capable hurdler off this sort of mark for Evan Williams (won twice at about 2m); beaten when falling late on at Haydock in December but that race was won by last week's Aintree winner El Jefe; one to consider on chase/stable debut.

Well handicapped on his winning form just over a year ago when in a different yard; his penultimate third at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy) offered some encouragement but then had a backward step at Stratford (2m1f); others safer.

20l behind Force De Frap at Stratford in March, but significant return to form at Bangor since, just failing to get up in time (2m1f, soft); still well treated on 2023's winning form despite a 3lb re-raise, and just a matter of whether a sharp 2m on good is too much of a speed test now.

Form & Verdict
Was 3lb below his winning mark over hurdles when making it second-time lucky over fences in a 2m1f handicap at Market Rasen (good to soft; has won on heavy), where he made all to win by 16l; lightly raced and could easily cope with the 10lb hike.

Off the mark over fences at second attempt, with 16l success at Market Rasen (2m1f, good to soft) in March; unable to build on that performance when third on consecutive starts at Bangor (2m1f), and his tendency to race too freely remains a nagging concern, but he ought to play another significant role here.

Form & Verdict
Travelled well throughout to win a small-field handicap chase at Huntingdon off just 2lb lower and his defeat at Fakenham was over hurdles at 2m4f; this race looks a better fit but he wouldn't want the ground too soft.

Made the frame in three of his four races since returning from long layoff this spring, most recently when keeping-on second over C&D (good) 24 days ago; probably won't be far away but others appeal more.

Has won a bumper, a novice handicap hurdle and a novice handicap chase, all at around 2m on good ground; fair third in a handicap hurdle at Fakenham in April when back from a 403-day break (2m4f, good; first run after win surgery); wouldn't rule out.

T: Andrew J Martin

Scored over fences at Huntingdon (2m, good) in February but he's been vulnerable over hurdles and fences since, in his two runs after another wind operation; on lower mark in this sphere but he's 1-9 over hurdles and others are more persuasive.

Dual hurdle winner who was consistent in handicaps; however, she didn't jump particularly well on chase debut at Plumpton (2m1f, good) and may appreciate further than this.

His mark continues to fall and he hinted at a revival when 20l second here (2m, soft) last November; however, pulled up at Aintree (2m4f, heavy) since and he's back to having plenty to prove; visor replaces cheekpieces.

Form & Verdict
Not that trustworthy these days but he beat a dual subsequent winner at Wincanton in January (1m7f, heavy) and rediscovered some form at Ludlow where he probably got at it with a rival too far from home; capable off this mark but not the percentage call.
