Consistent in recent times and is only 1lb higher than when coming out best in a busy finish over C&D last time; there's no obvious reason he won't get involved again.

In-form 7yo who, unlike fellow hat-trick seeker Valley Of Flowers, has no question marks over the trip/surface; success in July took C&D record to 31121, then followed up at Wolverhampton (2m) last month; strong claims.

Travelled strongly when third of six on handicap hurdle debut at Southwell (2m, good) in June and he won over staying trips on the Flat which suggests he may have potential at this distance; however, he has to bounce back from two below-par runs over hurdles (2m/2m4f, good); unraced on slow turf.

Has run well over this sort of trip but it's possible to argue he's more effective over a bit shorter; can hang left and doesn't always look the easiest but should give his running for his regular partner as usual.

Six-time winner at up to 1m7f following last Friday's win here (1m6f), when always well placed in a tactical affair; not well treated under a penalty (will be 3lb lower from tomorrow) and he ideally wouldn't want another stop-start gallop down in trip.

Will need to settle better than when winning over an extended 1m5f (turf) for Ryan Sexton last month if he's to see out this longest trip to date; he's very consistent, though, and is shortlisted for last year's successful yard.

Pulled hard on his first run in over a year here a fortnight ago, back from wind surgery, and didn't see it out; stamina is the obvious concern now upped from 1m4f and he'll need to be more amenable, but has low mileage and worth tracking in the market.

This Polytrack winner, who was picked up for 14,000gns from Richard Hughes, has stamina to prove going beyond 1m2f for the first time; he's a half-brother to a staying hurdler, though, which gives hope on debut for new yard.
