Form & Verdict

Justified favouritism when winning over hurdles here (2m, good) last summer, and knocking at the door over fences; was unable to match the finishing kick of the winner (coming up the hill) when runner-up here (2m4f, good; 7-2 favourite) last month; interesting back over 2m.

Dual winner over hurdles and fences; generally out of sorts since last success (12 months ago) and beaten long way in both runs this spring; needs a big revival back hurdling.

Form & Verdict

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.

Form & Verdict

Strongest over hurdles at Musselburgh, although was only narrowly beaten at Perth (2m, good to soft) on penultimate start; safely held third on recent C&D chasing debut (7-1), but this is a weaker race and he's likely to have taken plenty on board from that experience.

Admirable veteran; notched a 13th win from 99 starts over fences (also 3-10 over hurdles) when determinedly running down a stablemate in blustery conditions over C&D (soft) in April; 2lb higher, and is likely to appreciate any further easing of the ground conditions.

Form & Verdict

Did well to reel-in the subsequent winner Fulgurix (beat Blooriedotcom) when making a winning chasing debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, good to soft) and is open to improvement from a 7lb higher mark; however, it's a distinct possibility that he ideally needs further than 2m, which does present a risk factor.

Past winner over 2m1f (hurdle) and 2m3f (chase); remained in good form until a heavy fall at Sedgefield (3m3f) and the ground was heavy when pulled up the final time; nothing wrong with his mark but has been a long-time absent.

Modest over hurdles (0-10) and although arguably slightly better over fences (0-5) hasn't shown anywhere near enough to suggest his turn is near; could feasibly strip fitter for recent Sedgefield comeback third (beaten 25l),
