Able to dominate when winning two of his last three starts at Sedgefield (2m1f & 2m3f, good) and rising steadily in the weights - a combined total of 14lb - as a result; is afforded respect, but with the suspicion that further rain would serve to lessen his chance of adding another win to his CV.

23-race maiden who was runner-up in a couple of handicap chases in March (1m7f/2m3f, soft/good to soft) but disappointed over 2m3f here last time (5lb lower than today); that was his third quick race; could bounce back.

On a basement mark and this lightly-raced point winner may appreciate the switch to fences; however, he showed very little over hurdles on his sole run for Paul Nicholls and it's been the same story for this yard.

Outran 40-1 odds when second in this race 12 months ago (soft ground) and was pretty consistent off lowly marks towards end of last year (2m2f-3m) but is 0-18 over hurdles and others have more compelling claims.

Placed just once from 18 attempts over hurdles, at Musselburgh (1m7f, soft) in January; would be an each-way player from this mark if able to run to the level of her two Kelso efforts in September and October but needs to better her last two starts.

Fourth three consecutive times in September/October, the last twice in big-field handicaps over 2m5f and 2m3f; can give another good account here but is now 0-17 over hurdles and needs today's step up in trip to unlock improvement.
