Yet to hit top gear this season but was in front and seemingly in process of running well before running out after third-last flight at Taunton (2m3f, soft) a fortnight ago; remains on a good mark; not ruled out.

J: Miss Ella Herbison

T: Nigel Hawke

Displayed significant jolt of improvement to win by 11l over C&D (good to soft) in first-time cheekpieces on handicap hurdle debut just over a year ago; not in same form on any of three appearances this season (latest was after a wind op) but combination of better ground and return to this track offers some hope.

Better ground than the forecast soft going may be preferable, and he's failed to threaten in fifth on his two starts this season (2m4f/2m1f, soft/heavy); however, he's had wind surgery since his last outing which may help him rediscover the good form he was showing at the end of last season.

J: Lorcan Murtagh

T: Nigel Hawke

Won at Taunton (2m3f, good to soft) in March on handicap debut and then second of nine at Hereford (2m, good to soft); struggled on reappearance but that was in a higher grade at Sedgefield; possibilities off a fair mark.
