Rallied well to assert in closing stages at Worcester (2m4f, good to soft) last month and is now 2-7 over hurdles; 4lb rise demands more from him here but the new trip might open some doors.

Record of 3-8 over hurdles and has won his last two, over 2m4f at Worcester (good to soft) and 3m1f at Warwick (good); had a nice bit in hand last time and yet has only been raised 4lb; much respected.

Two good runs for new stable this month, the latter when second at Worcester (2m7f, good) a week ago; did not have that race run to suit his patient tactics and can be very dangerous if others set a stronger pace here.

Won three good-ground chases last spring (2m7f-3m1f) and signed off in the autumn with a good hurdle run (3m1f, good to form) but has fitness to prove here and today's trip-and-ground combination is probably not ideal.

Outbattled bang-in-form rival to score at Worcester (2m4f, good) this month, after a break, and is now 4-10 over hurdles; not yet fully exposed over staying trips and needs to be taken very seriously here.

Conceding 14lb to White Rhino when beaten 8l by that rival at Southwell earlier this year; has won two of his three subsequent starts and decisively saw off a well-handicapped rival here the last time (2m4f, good; 6lb lower); has to be of interest with Harry Atkins now taking off 10lb, assuming he'll be okay on softer ground (some doubts).

Pulled up over fences at Exeter three weeks ago and hasn't raced on the Flat since October 2021; there's no obvious reason why he'll prove threatening to those with more recent Flat form; safe to look elsewhere.

4-10 over hurdles; performed poorly on last two appearances and is not easy to predict after another break but he's with a top stable and his current mark is workable; goes beyond 2m7f for first time.
