Dual hurdle winner on good ground last summer (2m4f/2m6f) and wasn't running too badly this campaign until finished tailed off the last time; possibilities if shrugging aside that disappointment.

Three-time hurdle winner for Gary Hanmer, most recently at Stratford (3m2f, good) last summer; not seen since a poor run in November but can cope with today's drop back in trip and it will be interesting to see what Rebecca Menzies can do with her.
