Signed off for Harriet Brown with 30l defeat on soft ground in February but seemed to have rediscovered some form when fourth at Exeter (2m2f, good to soft) two starts ago, and starts off for Colin Tizzard on a good mark.

Won three times over hurdles for the Tizzard stable earlier this year, from 2m to 2m3f; off the mark for this yard in a four-runner handicap chase at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) and has continued to run well; usually goes from the front.

Form & Verdict

Fair Flat-racer who was placed on first four hurdling starts (2m, good-heavy); didn't get home after racing too freely on handicap debut over C&D (heavy) in February but is better than that, and a subsequent 4lb drop helps.

J: Tom Marquand

Won over hurdles at Exeter (2m2f, dead-heat) in March and he has plenty of form on the Flat including over 1m6f here last spring; hard to rule out a good run back from a break but he's 1-24 under both codes and others are more persuasive.

Form & Verdict

Made promising hurdle debut in Ireland last season and was placed on stable debut at Southwell (2m, good) last summer; down the field over C&D (soft) in December but had wind surgery soon afterwards and still has potential.

Three good-ground wins over 2m7f-3m last year; back on a dangerous mark and Chepstow last time, with conditions in his favour, was a step back in the right direction.

Form & Verdict

Fell two starts ago and ran no race at Newbury last month, so comes here with a point to prove; however, his fifth at Cheltenham (2m1f, good) in January was a good effort and he'll be very dangerous in this lower grade if the first-time cheekpieces give him a boost.

Form & Verdict

Delivered on earlier promise when comfortable winner of Wincanton maiden (1m7f, soft) in January but was unable to justify 2-5 favouritism when well-held fourth on last month's handicap debut at Sandown (2m, soft) and it's hard to know what to expect from him here.
