Prolific winner last season from 1m7f to 2m4f, culminating with a novice success at this meeting; his current campaign hasn't got going at all and was no better for wind surgery last time at Kempton; now goes in cheekpieces; has enough to prove.

Tailed off on both runs this term (October/December) but has had wind surgery since, which could help him rediscover the form shown in last season's prolific novice campaign; not discounted.

Solid novice hurdler last term, winning five times; however, form dipped markedly (well behind Flight Deck) when favourite at Cheltenham on reappearance; may bounce back at some stage but this is a tough task.

Form & Verdict

Reportedly never travelling when pulled up at 150-1 in Grade 1 Ballymore at Cheltenham (2m5f, soft) last month; however, he's in much calmer waters here and this very lightly raced 5yo is one to consider judged on the promise of his first two hurdle runs at Ascot (1m7f/2m3f, good to soft/good).

Won at Ascot (2m1f, good to soft) in December on second chase start and bounced back from Cheltenham flop for neck win at Kempton (2m2f, good to soft) last month; top trainer has won three of the last six runnings and this 6yo could have a big say if conditions suit (unproven on soft/heavy).

Stable form is a concern and he was pulled up at Cheltenham (2m4f, good to soft) last time out; however, he lost his right-hind shoe and the form of his win at Ascot (2m1f, good to soft) in December has been franked by the runner-up; not written off.

Form & Verdict

Major improvement when upped in trip and an easy winner at Lingfield (2m3f, good to soft) in February, and he showed it was no one-off when making all with plenty in hand at Market Rasen (2m2f, soft) last month; solid claims for last year's winning yard.

Form & Verdict

Irish bumper runner-up (2m2f, good to yielding) who posted two wins (2m4f, soft) from first three hurdle starts (defeat was in Grade 1); drops back in trip in a first-time tongue-tie having been tailed off in 3m Grade 2 at Haydock last time, but he needs to bounce back with a career-best to win.

Won on rules debut at Worcester (2m4f, soft) last October before respectable third in Grade 1 Challow at Newbury next time (2m4f, soft); further tough tasks the next twice and drops back in grade today, but a return to form is needed given he was pulled up at both Doncaster and Cheltenham.

Absent since running an inexplicably bad race at Kempton on Boxing Day (2m4f, good; 7-2); that was only his third run over fences and he merely had to be pushed out to win comfortably over this far on the Old course here the time before (good; off 7lb lower); placed in a Grade 1 novice as a hurdler and could be better handicapped than a lot of these.

Can lead; usually highly tried after impressive 2m4f hurdle debut win on soft last autumn; took a crashing fall on chase debut in October but no adverse effects three weeks later at Cheltenham (2m4f, good) where he had the race in safe keeping from some way out; up 8lb but future looks bright.

Impressed on hurdling debut at Worcester (2m4f, soft) last October and was creditable third in Grade 1 Challow at Newbury (2m4f, soft) just after Christmas; lost his way afterwards and fell on recent seasonal/chase debut but still has plenty of time to get career back on track.
