Form & Verdict
Modest maiden hurdler; well held in three novice runs on the Flat for his new yard but then sent off at just 3-1 for his handicap debut at Wolverhampton four weeks ago, only to stop quickly and finish last of the eight runners; cheekpieces left off now; might be worth another chance.

Took him 19 attempts to get off the mark but has been in fine form lately, winning at Windsor (1m2f, good to firm) and Lingfield (11.6f, good to firm) in May and going down narrowly in both starts this month; up another 3lb but the return to fast ground in his favour and high on the list.

Sharp improver since handicapping on turf, winning at Windsor and Lingfield last month and going down narrowly to a red-hot rival in a Class 5 at Wetherby last week (1m2f, good; pair well clear); able to race off the same mark and he'll be hard to beat back down in class.

Form & Verdict
Modest form in three novice/maiden runs but he faced a hopeless task over C&D on his reappearance and appeals as a likely improver now handicapping at this level; tongue tie added; betting instructive.

Lightly raced 4yo; promising second on handicap debut at Windsor (1m2f, good to firm; first-time tongue-tie) and wasn't beaten for lack of stamina when fourth over 11.5f back there two weeks later; with this further step up in distance likely to suit, he's one to take seriously.

Jumps yard but has a classy Flat pedigree and was a promising second on 1m2f handicap debut here (good to firm; first-time tongue-tie, retained) when checked in his run, not that it made any difference as the winner was way ahead of his mark (won since); can improve now up in trip; respected.

Well treated on her best form last season and she got back on track with a third behind a subsequent winner here (1m2f, good to firm) two weeks ago; this step back up in trip should be fine and has claims if she can build on that last run.
