J: Ben Jones

T: Sheila Lewis

Mostly out of form this season but was reportedly suited by being able to dominate when winning by 8l at favourite track Warwick (3m5f, good to soft) last month; still well handicapped on older form but it's questionable whether things will pan out so favourably for him here.

J: Ben Jones

T: Sheila Lewis

Proved his stamina when winning this race off 15lb higher last year (good to soft) but has not kicked on this season and was pulled up on soft ground at Exeter last time; very well treated after tumbling down the weights and perhaps the return to this track and the likely better ground may rejuvenate him.

J: Ben Jones

Four wins last season, up to 3m5f, but just hasn't found that form this term; slightly better in latest two starts but still beaten 25l+ in those and much better required to regain the winning thread.

J: Sean Houlihan

Successful four times, mostly at Warwick, last season; form has gone badly awry since his last success, however, and a major revival is needed; only a modest fourth on latest outing.

Won four times last season (3m-3m5f, soft/good to soft), including over C&D, and has dropped below his last winning mark; however, he's struggled to recapture that form this term.

Progressive last winter, winning four times (3m-3m5f), but he has shown little this season, pulling up at Exeter only six days ago; hard to fancy.

Progressive last winter, the most recent of four wins coming over 3m5f at Warwick in March (good to soft; has won on soft); however, last four outings have left a lot to be desired; usual cheekpieces are removed.

Progressive in staying chases last winter, the most recent of four wins coming over 3m5f at Warwick in March (good to soft; has won on soft); however, was pulled up in April and then well held over hurdles and in a cross-country race this autumn; good ground probably not ideal.

J: Charlie Deutsch

T: Sheila Lewis

May have been ready for a break when pulled up in April and might have needed the run when back over hurdles at Aintree last month; 5lb out of the handicap today but was highly progressive last season, winning four times at up to 3m5f, and he could be well suited to the demands of today's assignment.

Pulled up in April latest but he'd been a pretty spectacular success story earlier that season, winning four chases once tongue-tie and cheekpieces were applied; that was all on ground softer than good and there's more for him to prove now back over hurdles, for all that chase mark is 7lb higher.
