Form & Verdict
Often a trail-blazing front-runner but has run with credit three consecutive times since switching to much more patient tactics, most recently when second of nine at Worcester (2m, good) a week ago; competes off same mark here; probably won't be far away.

Very useful on the Flat in his prime and returned from five-month break to make very encouraging handicap hurdle debut at Uttoxeter (2m, good) two weeks ago; dangerous if able to build on that performance.

Came good over hurdles at fifth attempt with clearcut success at Warwick (2m, good) in May; managed only third of five off new mark at Southwell (2m, good) last month but is not yet fully exposed in this sphere and has since run well on the Flat.

Flat winner in Germany (1m2f); has improved for the switch to handicaps on good to firm/good, winning first three completions at about 2m1f and beaten (narrowly) only by in-form, improved rivals on last two starts; 3lb well in and has a solid chance if coping with likely slower ground.

Flat winner in Germany and he's done really well since switched to handicaps over hurdles, with three wins since August and a close call in his hat-trick bid at Plumpton (2m, good) last month; was odds-on last time but he was only just caught by an improver and still looks feasibly treated off 5lb higher here; key player.

Form & Verdict
Five-time hurdle winner who was clear second off today's mark over C&D (good) last month and gave another good account when third at Stratford (2m, good) a fortnight later; likely contender again.

Very well treated on his novice win at Leicester (1m7f, heavy) for Nigel Twiston-Davies two years ago but he's been mostly disappointing since and was tailed off over C&D on his reappearance last month; cheekpieces now return on this switch back to testing ground but others are more convincing.
