Won in fine style on his chase debut at Newcastle (2m7f, heavy) last April; strong claims if reproducing that form but hasn't been at the same level on his three starts since and needs to raise his game.

The race he won at Wetherby (3m, soft) rather fell apart but has only gone up 1lb for that and he's a lightly raced 7yo who can keep progressing.

In good form late last year with a win (3m, heavy) and near-miss (2m7f, heavy) in his regular cheekpieces; however, he was laboured at Haydock two runs back and departed mid-race last week at Carlisle when tried in blinkers; jumping can be an issue.

Largely consistent 8yo who was too strong for dual subsequent winner Heritier De Sivola when scoring in second-time blinkers at Ayr (3m, soft) last month; meets that rival on 13lb better terms here (if Joe Williamson's reduced claim is considered) but Philip Kirby's runner has undoubtedly shown major improvement in the meantime.

11yo who was well beaten on his comeback at Carlisle last month but he left last season's reappearance behind to go very close at Kelso (3m2f, heavy) next time, and he's on a competitive mark; blinkers are replaced by cheekpieces (ran well in them earlier in career); not discounted.

Ended long losing run with an easy win here (3m1f, soft) a fortnight ago; on that evidence his claims shouldn't be dismissed off today's 8lb higher mark, but this 11yo is in a tougher race and is unproven at the trip.

10yo who isn't as good as he was, but he's on a reduced mark and the form of his third of six at Sedgefield (3m3f, soft) last month reads well; there's slightly less emphasis on stamina here, which could help.
