11st 11lb

J: Ben Jones

T: Ben Pauling

Probably not one to rely upon heavily but produced career-best performance to win by 9l at Ascot (2m5f, good) in the autumn, and last month's defeat over the big Aintree fences is not viewed harshly; versatile regarding ground; could have a say.

J: Kielan Woods

T: Ben Pauling

He has an in-and-out profile but won in fine style at Ascot (2m5f, good) in November when last seen, landing that race for the second consecutive season, and a 9lb rise may not stop him if he can reproduce that form; won a bumper on heavy and all five of his wins have come when fresh.

Having first run for 231 days when winning this very decisively 12 months ago off 5lb lower; hasn't progressed as expected in the meantime, latterly finishing well beaten at the Galway Festival, but looks on a handy mark if he can revive.

J: Lorcan Williams

T: Ben Pauling

Won a good 2m5f handicap at Ascot last November; absent since a poor showing in a valuable Cheltenham contest in January; trainer could offer no explanation at the time; interesting that he is sent on this mission after six-month break.

J: Tom Cannon

T: Ben Pauling

Second-season chaser; had plenty to spare at Ascot (2m5f, good to soft) on reappearance and didn't quite get home over 3m at Kempton subsequently; may have more to offer back down in trip; remains of interest.
