Three wins this season (2m/2m1f) and only 2lb higher than for the latest of them; ridden by inexperienced claimers the last twice so may do better reunited with Kevin Jones (all three wins under him); good ground the worry - all his best form has come on softer.

Four-time French winner who has failed to threaten on his first three runs for this yard; however, he's dropped down the weights and perhaps the drop back in trip will also be a plus; watch the betting.

Mixed form on his three Irish rules starts and well beaten on last month's stable debut in Carlisle maiden hurdle (3m1f, soft); however, today's drop back in trip and first-time cheekpieces may be positives, and this lightly raced point winner is not ruled out now going handicapping for a trainer who has done well this season with her Irish recruits.

Having been 2-2 in this headgear combination (2m, good/soft), he was disappointing in his hat-trick bid at Wetherby last month; hard to be confident on the back of that but the heavy ground may have been too much so it won't be a surprise if he bounces back with a big performance.

Has struggled on his last three starts, including at Catterick two starts ago on good ground that should have suited (it was soft/heavy on the two other occasions); however, if he can rediscover the form he was showing towards the end of last year he has a big chance.
