J: Mr William Easterby

T: Tim Easterby

Thorough stayer who has a C&D win on his CV and copes well with slow ground; not seen since a poor run in April and does not have a compelling record when fresh but begins the new season from a career-low mark.

J: Mr William Easterby

Thorough stayer who has finished a respectable fourth at Bangor (3m5f, good to soft) and here (4m, heavy) in his last two starts; takes a big drop back in trip but he's now 6lb lower than for last win and that came over 2m7f at Newcastle (made all) last April; in the mix.

J: Sam Coltherd

Ran respectably in his first two chase starts (both last season) but hasn't fared nearly so well in two runs this term; hurdles win came off 8lb higher, so has possibilities if coming back to form.

Made underwhelming seasonal debut in November and ran as though something was amiss here (2m7f) a fortnight later; on a good mark now and should cope with today's drop back in trip but needs to prove his wellbeing.

Two chase wins but yet to score over hurdles; best effort for some time when fourth at Kelso last month; cheekpieces return (both wins in headgear) and chance will be heightened if this turns into a real slog.

J: Brian Hughes

Versatile type who won at Kelso (2m5f, good to soft) in January and has run some good races since but he was well below form over C&D (behind Croagh Patrick) last Saturday; only 2lb higher than for last win but he didn't jump fluently last time and needs to bounce back in new headgear.

Kept on well to win over 3m here (good to soft) last December and was back on the scoresheet when leading close home at Kelso (3m4f, good) in May; returned from a break with a fair second of four at Perth (3m, good) in September and today's test could be right up his street; cheekpieces go on.

Ran well when second of three in this last year (good ground) and went one better over C&D (soft) next time; has failed to fire since but perhaps a wind op will have done the trick and she's off her last winning mark.

13yo who has won twice over both hurdles and fences, all 3m on good or good to soft and the chase wins were both at this track (2022); this is his first run over hurdles since 2019 but runner-up in two of his last four starts, short-headed at Sedgefield (3m3f) latest, which gives him a shout.
