Flat winner; has been something of a slow learner over hurdles but recent seconds have shown that he is getting to grips with the discipline; well clear of the rest when runner-up at Market Rasen latest and fair shout here.

1m2f winner who doubled his tally in a maiden hurdle this summer; ended up well beaten on handicap debut last time and he looks vulnerable back in a novice, especially with a penalty.

Comfortbly too good for Painless Potter in 2m course maiden in June and, following an excusable defeat on heavy ground, ran well when second here last month; not really bred to benefit this step up in trip, though.

Flat winner last year (RPR 79); not in great form in 2023 but reverted to hurdles with a C&D second this month; that wasn't a strong race (winner well held since) but entitles him to consideration.

Formerly a fairly useful Flat-racer and came good over hurdles at ninth attempt, making all in C&D handicap for Shaun Lycett this month; recently changed hands for 14,000gns; interesting to see what new stable can do with him.

Four hurdle starts in Ireland and has run well enough in two of them to make him the one to beat here; once a smart Flat performer (ran in the 2019 Derby) but completely lost his way in recent years so possibly not one for the remortgage.

Current mark reads well next to his peak efforts of 2021-22 but he's often keen, as when a remote third on his switch to fences at Huntingdon (2m4f); bit risky.

Unimproved for the application of cheekpieces (retained) when last seen in July, albeit refusing to settle; current mark looks good next to his peak efforts of 2021-22, including at this sort of trip, and smattering of chase winners in pedigree offers hope ahead of this switch to fences.
