Made too many jumping errors when beaten favourite in a chase last month but still ran well enough to suggest he's in fairly good form; switches back to hurdling on a good mark and might be the answer.

Course bumper winner who is 0-12 over hurdles/fences but he's been an encouraging third this autumn on two of his three chase starts, including in first-time blinkers (retained) at Sedgefield (2m3f, soft) recently when he went clear before fading; could capitalise on the drop back down in trip.

Point winner who pulled clear when making a winning bumper debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) on Boxing Day; another solid run when third under a penalty at Hereford (2m, good) last month; takes on males today but the return to slow ground could be a plus and she's a strong contender.

Remote fourth when falling two out on debut in Irish maiden point (3m, good to yielding) in November; however, he's travelled from Northern Ireland for his first rules run and his trainer does very well in British bumpers (5-17 this season); interesting, even more so if strong in the betting.
