J: Isabel Williams

T: Evan Williams

Hat-trick of wins in early 2022, the middle leg in this race (soft; subsequent Cheltenham win on good); hasn't been in the same form this winter but he ran more promisingly than the distance beaten suggests at Uttoxeter recently and is now only just above his latest winning mark; respected.

Signed off last season with a hat-trick of wins at about 2m4f, all of them under Isabel Williams; yet to replicate that form this term and the handicapper has eased him only 2lb in the process; others appeal more.

Form & Verdict

Beaten on last nine runs with a habit of finding one or two too good; however, having been placed in his last four races (2m-2m4f, various), his consistency is an appealing trait against rivals who have something to prove.

Form & Verdict

Very useful over fences in his prime in 2018 but he's had an interrupted career since and is hard to fancy based on this season's three runs over hurdles, following another absence.

Below best back over hurdles at Taunton in December following a stint on the Flat; however, it wasn't a bad run and this course winner continues to edge back down the weights; can't be discounted.

11st 9lb

J: Harry Cobden

T: Nigel Hawke

Ended last season with two creditable efforts in marathon chases and he returned from another break with a respectable fourth at Exeter (3m6f, good to soft) 19 days ago; takes a big drop back in trip but his last win came over 2m7f here in February and he could be dangerous.

Form & Verdict

Progressive last term, winning three times, and he's now 3lb lower than when scoring at Carlisle last February; however, his form has gone the wrong way after a fair reappearance at Cheltenham and he was pulled up latest.
