Form & Verdict

Won a soft-ground bumper here in January; made a respectable debut over hurdles at Perth (2m4f, good) in June; returned to that C&D later that month with an improved effort to be 13l second in a maiden; still early days and he is not ruled out now dropping in trip.

Just 1-9 over hurdles but bounced back quickly from a disappointing December run when close second in competitive handicap here (2m4f, soft) on New Year's Day and will pose a threat if able to transfer that form to fences at the first attempt; first-time tongue-tie.

Won at Musselburgh (1m7f, soft) last November when back from a break and has run well in defeat on his four starts since, most recently at Down Royal (3m, yielding) in May; can go well fresh and could be a player.

Form & Verdict

French Flat winner who won twice over hurdles (2m4f/2m, both on soft) when with Willie Mullins; hard to recommend him on what we have seen in five starts since leaving that trainer; took a small step back in the right direction (on debut for this yard) when last seen.

His mark continues to tumble but it's a long time since this 10yo posed a threat and others make greater appeal.

Makes quick reappearance after struggling from out of the weights in good-quality 2m4f contest here on New Year's Day; will find this race easier but is patently not the force of old and others in this line-up have much more persuasive profiles.

10yo who has been regressive and, although he took a step back in the right direction over hurdles here last time, he didn't shape as though a win was imminent; 7lb out of the handicap now back over fences and others preferred.

Form & Verdict

Multiple Flat winner who is 2-11 over hurdles; acts on slow ground; 25-1 and ran with credit in a Cheltenham novice hurdle (2m4f, good) recently; has the speed for this trip, as shown when scoring at Tramore in June; player if able to reproduce that sort of form.

Form & Verdict

Not seen since winning over hurdles at Fairyhouse (2m, good) on his final start for Tom Mullins over a year ago; changed hands for £40,000 soon after that; has yet to prove as effective over hurdles when the ground is slower than good but has the ability to be a contender if ready after his absence.

Form & Verdict

Returned from wind surgery for back-to-back wins at Catterick (1m7f, soft) and Ludlow (2m, good) in March; improved on that when fourth in an Aintree handicap hurdle in April, before a below-par effort at Sandown; returns from further wind surgery on a competitive mark; player.
