J: Mr Tom Broughton

Very useful handicapper in his prime; long in the tooth now and has become very inconsistent in recent years but proved he retains significant ability when winning on hunter chase debut at Newbury (2m7f, good to soft) four weeks ago.

Solomon Grey

J: Miss Immy Robinson

Posted some good efforts in defeat last year, most notably when creditable third of 12 in this race (good ground), and returned to racing under rules with very respectable third at Stratford (2m6f, good to soft) 12 days ago; not getting any younger but has each-way claims at least.

Dual hunter chase winner in 2022; drew a blank last year but posted some good efforts in defeat, most notably when third at Cheltenham (2m4f, good); beaten odds-on favourite when reappearing in a point in February but has a fighting chance here if that run brought him on.
