J: Bradley Harris

T: Seamus Mullins

Made somewhat shaky start to his chasing career this season but has really got his act together lately, and looked in excellent nick when drawing clear to win by 13l at Plumpton (3m1f, good) three weeks ago; went up 9lb for that but still commands respect.

Defied near enough a stone higher mark in the staying handicap hurdle on this card 12 months ago (soft); hasn't been that convincing over fences but went a long way to putting that right when second to an in-form rival over C&D three weeks ago.

Beaten over 17l when weakening sixth on last month's handicap debut at Ffos Las (2m, heavy) but remains unexposed and, if his bumper form is a guide, drying ground might show him in a much better light here.

Soundly beaten on chasing debut last April and has reverted to hurdling this term; opened account with 7l course win last month (2m1f heavy) and bumped into a improver when second of four at Lingfield (2m, heavy) three weeks ago; contender if all goes to plan on this second attempt at chasing.

J: Freddie Gingell

Dual hurdle winner at about 2m4f (good to soft); wasn't at all convincing in his first two chases but came good under a prominent ride over C&D (good) two weeks ago when readily repelling the strong-finishing second; just 4lb higher for this similar sort of race and Freddie Gingell's claim takes away 3lb of that.

Dual hurdle winner at about 2m4f (good to soft); had two chase runs, pulling up on first attempt and then a well-held fifth after making mistakes; may improve as he gains in confidence and his mark is okay.

His reduced mark appeals on last season's hurdle form but he's been unable to get competitive over fences this season and was pulled up at Exeter last time; major turnaround needed.
