Form & Verdict

Best known for his heroics at Plumpton (six wins there) but also has a 2m5f course victory on his CV; looked as good as ever when finishing strongly to score at Plumpton (3m1f, good) last month and ought to give another good account.

T: Seamus Mullins

His first run over hurdles in five years when runner-up over 3m1f here last month and followed that with a sterling effort under top weight back chasing over 2m3f (the winner Fame And Fun runs 1.30); this is more his trip but he faces another big ask under a welter burden.

His first run over hurdles in five years when a 10l second here last time and debatable what he achieved with only three getting round; had been struggling over fences so, despite his good course record, it's hard to be confident.

Form & Verdict

Dual hurdle winner who came good over fences at fifth attempt, with game success at Wincanton (3m1f, good to soft) last month; competes off career-high mark here but could still have more to offer, and useful 3lb claimer Jordan Nailor is enlisted.

Has some good form this season, notably when just missing out over 3m4f at Haydock before running perfectly well in a deep C&D handicap (again soft); however, has dropped his guard the last twice and this is a tough race in which to bounce back.

It was unlike him to run so moderately at Sandown, albeit in a handicap that's worked out well; in form (and consistent) prior to that, having just missed out over 3m4f at Haydock before running perfectly well in a deep Cheltenham handicap (3m2f; again soft); stuck on a tough mark but is by no means dismissed.

Form & Verdict

Has very good 6-17 strike-rate over fences (includes three course wins) but is yet to convince stamina-wise over this sort of trip and began this year with two very laboured efforts (chase/hurdle); need to race with a lot more zest today.

Regressive and inconsistent 10yo; proved he retains significant ability when second at Lingfield (2m6f, soft) in November but looked reluctant when pulled up there last month and it's hard to tell whether he'll warm to the task here.

Form & Verdict

Won two of first three starts after rejoining David Dennis last summer (3m/3m2f, good) but failed to complete consecutive races in November and was 46l behind I See You Well at Plumpton last month, after a break; back on a good mark now but needs today's headgear switch to perk him up.
