Form & Verdict

Three-time chase winner on good ground last year (1m7f-2m4f) and looked unlucky not to add to his tally at Wetherby (2m3f, good; fell at last fence) in October; pulled up soon after early jumping error on last month's reappearance outing, though, and has stamina to prove over new trip today.

J: Conor Rabbitt

T: Maurice Barnes

In career-best form in recent months, including very respectable fifth on slower-than-ideal ground in C&D Summer Plate in July; bumped into revitalised subsequent winner when second at Perth (3m, soft; first-time cheekpieces) 19 days ago; one to consider.

Form & Verdict

Course hurdle winner (2m5f, good) right at start of this season; 0-4 over fences since returning from break in the autumn and 1lb wrong today, but bumped into a progressive rival when clear second at Musselburgh (3m, good to soft) last month; might be the answer.

Good-ground hurdle winner at this meeting two years ago and, although 0-9 over fences, it's easy to overlook last two below-par efforts on heavy; no surprise should he do much better this time.

Form & Verdict

Not one to rely upon heavily but put two below-par runs behind him when close second at Carlisle (2m4f, heavy) last month; still on a workable mark after a 2lb rise and will be fine over today's trip, but ground any quicker than good to soft would be a worry.

J: Danny McMenamin

Losing sequence goes back 14 races to early 2021 but he has run well this season and some late idling cost him the race over 3m at Carlisle last time (heavy); finished third in this two years ago when 3lb higher; solid chance.

J: Danny McMenamin

Went close here (2m4f, heavy) last March and kicked off this campaign with two good second-place finishes at Ayr (3m, soft/heavy); not at the top of his game at Newcastle the last twice and his losing sequence goes back 13 races to March 2021, but he's capable of having a say if bouncing back to form.

Form & Verdict

Completed a four-time when winning this race by 9l a year ago (good to soft) but has shown his form on only one of six appearances this season; looked rather laboured when sixth in first-time cheekpieces (retained) here last month and it's hard to predict whether he'll warm to the task today.

Form & Verdict

Back in peak form when making all at Newcastle (2m4f, soft) in November but ran very poorly when back there in January; today's trip-and-ground combination should suit but he's another who has become hard to predict.
