J: Alan Johns

T: Tim Vaughan

Three wins over hurdles (1m7f/2m) last winter and he got back near that form when a 2l third at Musselburgh (1m7f, good to soft) last month; now goes back up in trip but he rallied well last time and has gone close at 2m4f in the past; respected.

11st 7lb

J: Alan Johns

T: Tim Vaughan

Benefited from a canny ride when winning at Taunton (2m, good) having had nothing to do with a strong gallop; heavy ground was an excuse first time back and then showed plenty more at Musselburgh when beaten under 3l; suspicion that he's on a tough mark but can still go well.

Held up off a strong gallop before coming clear at Taunton on his final run of last season (2m, good); the ground was heavy when quiet on reappearance at Chepstow and entitled to come on for that run.

J: Alan Johns

Versatile ground-wise; it looked as though the handicapper had caught up only for him to then beat Boombawn by 4l at Taunton (2m, good), though being held up off a strong gallop aided him no end; now has another 5lb to deal with in his toughest assignment to date.

10st 3lb

J: Alan Johns

T: Tim Vaughan

Won at Leicester (1m7f, good to soft) in December and followed up at Ffos Las (2m, soft); he's versatile ground-wise and it will be no surprise if he runs well, but his Exeter sixth last time (2m2f, good to soft) hints that he may now be in the handicapper's clutches.
