Successful over hurdles at Aintree (3m, good) and over fences at Ayr (3m, soft) on last two completed starts; however, she's back on career-high mark and faces a much stiffer task in this grade.

Dual chase winner but hesitant at some fences on latest chase start at Newcastle in March and has been hurdling since, staying on well to defy a big weight at Aintree in June (3m, good); returns to fences off 9lb higher but still has potential as a staying chaser.

Form & Verdict

Four-time course winner on heavy ground (2m5f-3m3f; one hurdle, three chases); now back on his last winning mark but has disappointed on both starts since an encouraging seasonal debut in October, the more recent over C&D 12 days ago; needs to up his game.

Form & Verdict

Six-time chase winner; placed over C&D on seasonal debut in November and looked as good as ever when scoring at Aintree (2m4f, soft) last month but only two finished the latter race and this 12yo has to compete off a career-high mark today.

Prolific winner (2m-2m4f) who reappeared with good second off 6lb higher here (3m, soft) in November; he's a player on that form but this 13yo has been well beaten/pulled up the last twice and has to get back on track.

The new visor (kept since, replacing cheekpieces) worked a treat when he won at Kelso (3m2f, heavy) over Christmas for the second year running; he hasn't sparked that often in the last two years, though, showing little on latest outing; beaten just over 20l when sixth and fifth in the last two Eiders, so others look more solid.

The new visor worked a treat when winning a 3m2f handicap at Kelso (heavy) over Christmas for the second year running; 4lb rise won't prevent another bold show if he's as good again (not guaranteed).
