Form & Verdict
Dual chase winner at Worcester (2m7f, good) in early part of last season and returned from nine-month absence with pleasing second at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) last month; ought to be better suited by this trip-and-ground combination and will be dangerous if that recent run brought him on.

2-4 over fences, gaining both wins over 2m7f on good ground at Worcester; not yet fully exposed but has been absent since a heavy defeat last summer, and today's trip-and-ground combination may not be his cup of tea.

Form & Verdict
Fell in both chases in 2022-23 season and, after a year off, was pulled up when back over hurdles in March; steadied the ship with respectable third of five over hurdles last month but still looks risky beginning his second spell over fences.

Form & Verdict
Went very close over hurdles at Taunton (2m3f, good) in November but has not yet built on that performance and made low-key start to chasing career when sixth of seven (albeit not beaten far) at Ffos Las (2m3f, good to soft; first-time tongue-tie) last month; on a workable mark but others have more pressing claims.

Maiden after 11 starts but went very close over hurdles at Taunton (2m3f, good) in November; not beaten far when showing promise at Ffos Las (2m3f, good to soft) on chase debut in April but never threatened when a well-held third upped to 2m6f at Stratford in May; needs to step up if he's to win this.

Form & Verdict
Struggled to cope with heavy ground on handicap hurdle debut in January but fared much better and lost out by only a head here (2m2f, good to soft; first-time tongue-tie) last month; upped in trip and switched to fences today; probably still has potential.

Form & Verdict
Seemed to respond pretty well to first-time cheekpieces when close fourth at Ludlow (3m, good) last month, after a break, and is now only 2lb higher than when scoring on chasing debut at Hereford (2m5f, good) in November; respected.

Course bumper winner who was placed in three novice/maiden hurdles (2m-2m3f) before winning on chase/handicap debut at Hereford (2m5f, good) in November; yet to build on that performance over fences and was pulled up after jumping poorly last month but has strong claims if all goes to plan on this return to hurdling.

Form & Verdict
Dual Irish point winner in early part of last year and has made the frame in five consecutive maiden hurdles since the autumn (2m-3m1f); switched to fences for this handicap debut; seems versatile regarding trip/ground; ought to be on the premises again.

Two-time point winner; placed on all four hurdle starts, and might well have prevailed but for a costly final-flight error at Sedgefield (2m4f maiden, soft; evens-favourite) in January; sets the clear benchmark on RPRs returning from a 71-day absence.
