Too strong for subsequent Albert Bartlett winner Stay Away Fay when winning Grade 2 at Doncaster (3m, good) in January and now 3-4 over hurdles (includes soft-ground win); there is little doubt that Stay Away Fay showed significant improvement at Cheltenham, but this 7yo still has potential.

Has assembled a blemish-free CV, winning his sole point (3m), both his bumpers and two novice hurdles; showed a jolt of improvement when scoring at Bangor (2m7f, soft) three weeks ago in clearcut style, giving weight all round; this is stronger but he's hard to pin down and should go well again.

Evidently a nice type as he was purchased for £110,000 soon after finishing second in Irish point four months ago; yard has modest strike-rate in bumpers but this recruit could be above average; interesting.

Placed in his first two chases (on soft) and looked much more assured over the fences when drawing 19l clear at Doncaster (3m2f, good) in December to register his first win; not disgraced at Newcastle on latest outing but this is quite a rethink over his trip and he also has cheekpieces (tried on final start last term, pulled up) reinstated.

Promise for Gavin Cromwell and won his first two starts for this yard, landing a maiden hurdle at Navan last season before wide margin novice handicap hurdle win; missed a year and tailed off on last month's return but return to quicker ground may help him get back on track.

All starts at Newcastle, making the frame twice (on AW/turf) last term for Micky Hammond but below par three months ago on debut for Sandy Forster; the first two efforts give him good form claims.

His form can be up and down and he was soundly beaten on the Flat a fortnight ago; however, he won in that code two starts ago and was a convincing winner over hurdles at Doncaster (2m, good) last December; just 3lb higher today and he's 2-2 on good ground; interesting contender.

Nicely bred 6yo who showed promise at Musselburgh (1m7f, soft) in January, staying on for fourth; should be suited by this stiffer test; in-form yard is 4-7 in Carlisle bumpers in last five seasons; appealing type.

Moderate form in maiden/novice hurdles at around 2m earlier in the year; returned from a break to score when upped to 2m3f (good to soft) for his handicap debut over C&D last month, when he had plenty in hand; up 7lb for that but may still be well treated; big player.
