Progressive form over hurdles, achieving near-useful level when completing the hat-trick at Perth recently. No easy task conceding weight all round, though.

Fairly useful Flat winner who returned an improved performer over hurdles, winning twice over C&D in August. Narrowly denied the hat-trick at Worcester recently.

Bit more like it when fourth and 5 in a Southwell novice last week, but he would have been beaten further in a well-run race.

Fair form in bumpers and shaped quite well when third both hurdles starts to end last season. Should have more to offer and he gets plenty of weight from main rivals.

From a good family and she landed a bit of a punt on second bumper start at Stratford in June. That wasn't a strong race but she should have a future in this sphere.

Verdict

Oliver Sherwood's course and distance winner Captain Peacock failed in his hat-trick bid when beaten just a short head at Worcester and he may have to settle for minor honours again as he comes up against the in-form GLOBAL JACKPOT. Gordon Elliott's Irish raider is unbeaten in his last three and, having thrashed the opposition at Perth last time, there appears to be no stopping him. Mystical Clouds is another to note.

Verdict

MYSTICAL CLOUDS shaped with promise both hurdles starts to end last season, and though he takes on race-fit and in-form rivals in Captain Peacock and Global Jackpot, the weight he receives from both may prove to be decisive.
