Form & Verdict

Good-ground specialist who has very good 13-30 career strike-rate; not at best when second of five here (3m, good) in June but remains well handicapped on old chase form and ought to be suited by today's drop back in trip.

Good-ground specialist with excellent 13-30 strike-rate under rules; this season's two wins were gained in small-field events, though, and he didn't fire when back in a more competitive race last month.

J: Brian Hughes

T: Donald McCain

Front-runner who has posted easy wins on two of his last three runs (3m/1m4f, good/good to soft); those were in very small fields and today's assignment is tougher, but this in-form C&D winner has to be respected.

Form & Verdict

Returned from break with two disappointing runs in the spring but looked back in good nick when close second over C&D (good to soft) in June, and could quite plausibly be seen to even better effect if the ground is quicker today.

Form & Verdict

Not disgraced when fifth in good-quality Down Royal hunter chase on Boxing Day and returns to racing under rules after finishing second in a point in April but needs to prove he can still be competitive off his current handicap mark; versatile regarding ground.

Former useful hunter chaser is winless for over two years and not been at his best for some time; was mostly point-to-pointing over the winter and weakened tamely in Perth handicap last time having had a summer break.

One from eleven in 'points'; showed signs of getting back into the swing of things when fifth of ten runners behind January Jets at Kirkistown in November, although this demands a whole lot more.

Form & Verdict

Scored off today's mark at Sedgefield (2m5f, soft) in December and won't mind if the ground is much faster here but was below form when well-held fourth at Market Rasen last month and confidence in him would be higher on a left-handed track.

Comes here after winning at Kelso (2m5f, good) and Hexham (2m4f, soft) this autumn and is now 7-18 over fences; today's race is more competitive but his current mark is probably not beyond him, and he's evidently in very good nick.
