Consistent and progressive mare with two chase wins here this spring; only third (off 9lb lower) when last seen over hurdles six months ago but has improved since; fair chance if able to transfer her chasing form.

The winner of two chases last winter (2m4f/2m3f) and back to that sort of form in his last two runs (2m7f/3m4f); tries hard enough so whether the new cheekpieces will assist remains to be seen.

Won two chases last winter (2m4f/2m3f) and was seemingly back in good form when keeping on well for close third here (2m7f, good) last month; still on a workable mark and looks well worth a crack at today's trip.

Reliable; five chase wins (2m4f-3m1f, and regularly placed); ridden out to score at Doncaster (3m, soft; from a 4lb lower mark) in March, and a respectable second at Market Rasen last time; entitled to respect despite the prospect of drying ground posing a slight risk.

Irish point winner in 2019 (3m); has been campaigned mainly over shorter distances since then, latest win being over 2m4f at Haydock in April 2022 (good); excuses for two poor runs on last two starts, but a bit to prove now.

Much better known for his exploits over 3m nowadays but coped well with drop back to 2m when keeping on strongly to win for Toby McCain-Mitchell here (soft) 12 days ago; quickly moves back up in trip today; 5lb rise ought to be manageable.
