"...he boasts the strongest form by far..."

Timeform on Silver Streak

14:15 - PASEO (6) is a half-brother to the useful hurdler Pilansberg and he caught the eye on his hurdles debut at Huntingdon. He finished third but would have been closer had he not unluckily lost his place at a vital stage of the race. He rallied well in the closing stages, finishing with something still to give, and he looks sure to improve.

14:45 - OLEG (5) won well on his chase debut at Wincanton, asserting after the final fence to win by two and a quarter lengths, and a 6lb rise looks fair. The four-year-old allowance he receives is an advantage and it would be a surprise were he not to go close.

15:20 - PACIFY (4) has not yet faced a challenge as tough as this over hurdles but he has made an impeccable start to his career over obstacles, winning all four starts, and he can stay unbeaten in this sphere. He sets a clear standard based on his wide-margin win at Newton Abbot on his penultimate start and will be difficult to beat if running to a similar level.

15:50 - TIDAL WATCH (3) was beaten only by a well-handicapped rival at Kelso last time and, able to race off the same mark, looks fairly treated. He has taken well to chasing, surpassing the level of form he achieved over hurdles, and may yet have more to offer in this sphere on just his fourth start over fences.

16:25 - SILVER STREAK (4) enjoyed a fantastic campaign last season, with a third-place finish in the Champion Hurdle being among the highlights. He boasts the strongest form by far and will be tough to beat if tuned up on his first start of the campaign. It's worth noting he has won competitive handicaps on his seasonal reappearance for the past two seasons.

17:00- VENDREDI TROIS (3) wasn't at his best through the summer but has dropped to a fair mark and is respected after a short break. This is a tough race so it's also worth considering BALLYCRYSTAL COURT (5), who wasn't seen to best effect last time but did well to win at Market Rasen the time before.

17:35 - MASON JAR (1) has improved since moving to Richard Newland's yard and confirmed the promise of his reappearance when winning well at Uttoxeter this month. He remains open to further improvement for the yard and should be able to follow up.
