Irish point runner-up (3m, yielding to soft) who won on rules debut in Wetherby novice hurdle (2m, good) before bumping into useful sort at Newcastle (2m, good); had an excuse (hampered early) when tailed off on handicap debut at Catterick (2m3f, soft) and this unexposed 6yo retains potential.

Unexposed; second in Irish point (3m, yielding to soft); winning British debut in Wetherby novice hurdle in November (2m, good) but no match for a progressive sort when second in similar company at Newcastle last time (2m, good); up in trip for handicap debut and an interesting contender.

Progressive 7yo who won five times over hurdles last year (2m-2m5f, good to soft/soft); creditable third at Wetherby (2m3f, good) latest but it does suggest the handicapper finally has him about right.

Progressive 7yo who won five times over hurdles last year (2m-2m5f, good to soft/soft); last month's defeat in a major handicap should not be viewed harshly but today's forecast good ground may not be ideal.

Stepped up on her reappearance when third to the progressive Wakool over 3m here (soft) at the turn of the year; not the most consistent in recent times but she's a player if able to back that up; stable won this in 2020.

Ex-French and still lightly raced in Britain; looked all the better for wind surgery and the return of a tongue-tie when making a stylish handicap debut at Fontwell (soft) and again he came from behind to be third at Cheltenham (good), finishing hot on the heels of last week's high-profile Kelso winner Cormier; big player off 2lb higher and especially if granted softer ground.

Ex-French, four runs in Britain; wind surgery before this season; tongue-tie also returned for handicap debut at Fontwell (2m1f, soft; unraced on good) five weeks ago and he made up his ground in good style to win in clearcut fashion; up 5lb but, if the ground is okay, probably more to offer.

Seven-race maiden; finished placed twice over hurdles (2m4f, good/good to soft) in the autumn but he struggled in a handicap at Aintree on his penultimate run before unseating at the first at Wetherby on Boxing Day; has something to prove and he needs to kick on again to make a big impact here.
