Six-time winner over hurdles and a four-time winner on the Flat but yet to convince as a chaser (five attempts); well beaten over 2m4f here on latest outing in November and remains a risky option.

Returned from a long layoff during the winter and ran his best race since making his comeback when, back up to 3m, he was second at Doncaster (soft) 18 days ago; ought to stay this longer trip and another step forward would put him in the mix.

C&D winner in 2019 when on the same mark; acts on soft; returned from 14 months off when beaten a long way at Haydock (2m3f, soft) in December; not a huge amount more encouragement at Wetherby (2m3f, soft) latest; return to this trip positive; drops in grade; not written off but revival needed.

Unraced on heavy in Britain; passed three on the run-in when third in Edinburgh National at Musselburgh (near 4m, good to soft; 2lb lower today) last February, restating her strength in stamina after 6l win in the Borders National at Kelso (extended 4m, soft) the time before; showed little 111 days ago on her only run this term, but she's a huge player if reverting to what she showed last season over 4m and her stable is in good form.

Ran with credit only once from five starts in the last 12 months; brought down early on latest, though, so has not had much of a chance to show what he can do this season; conditions suit and he's down to what should be a dangerous mark.

Triple bumper winner who won a maiden hurdle at Uttoxeter (2m7f, heavy) last February but he's not gone on from that and was well held back at Uttoxeter on his return last month; goes back up in trip off a falling mark but he's now 1-11 in this sphere and others are preferred.

Two below-par efforts before a partial revival when cheekpieces were enlisted at Carlisle on latest outing; on a tempting mark but a longer distance wouldn't have gone amiss.
