Comment: Fairly useful maiden on Flat (stays 1¼m) for John Gosden. Tongue tied and caught the eye under a sympathetic ride on hurdling debut at Newbury 43 days ago and is open to plenty of improvement.

Comment: Fairly useful 1½m winner on Flat who made it third time lucky over hurdles in first-time cheekpieces at Fakenham in March. Failed to repeat that effort at Huntingdon but still sets the standard.

Comment: Fair maiden on Flat, stays 1¾m, improved on handicap debut last time. Has since had a breathing operation and well worth considering on hurdle debut having joined top yard.

Comment: Won sole start in points. Disappointing in a pair of bumpers but showed more sent hurdling when second in a C&D novice 18 days ago, running on. Should do better

Comment: Fetched €60,000 as a 3-y-o, but beat only one home on sole bumper start and took a tired fall on Stratford hurdling debut when last seen in October. Has since had a wind operation.

Comment: Modest form standout effort on Flat. Sold from William Muir for just £800 so makes little appeal.

OLYMPIC CONQUEROR was let down by his jumping at Huntingdon last time, but he still sets the standard on his previous form so has to be considered the one to beat. Byzantine Empire caught the eye under a considerate ride at Newbury and could improve quite a lot.
