Form & Verdict

Went chasing for new yard last season and won here twice (both 2m3f, soft), including last November after a break; his solid campaign concluded with a good second at Huntingdon (2m4f, soft) in April and he could have more to offer this term; respected on reappearance.

Gained all four chase wins over shorter trips at Sedgefield, the last twice in the autumn, but ran well in defeat over this C&D (good to soft) in January and is probably still on a workable mark; shortlisted.

Two wins at Sedgefield this season (on soft at 2m5f and 2m3f) and fair placed efforts on last two starts; not disgraced on his only two attempts at 3m under rules (has won a 3m point) but best form at shorter.

Form & Verdict

His form went the wrong way earlier this year and he was pulled up at Stratford in April when last seen; however, perhaps a break will have helped and he's dropped to an attractive mark; could go well.

Form & Verdict

Tailed off in maiden hurdle at Bangor (2m3f, good to soft) in March when last seen but has had wind op since and he was a promising fourth at Wetherby (2m, soft) two starts ago; this lightly raced point winner (3m, soft) is open to improvement now switched to fences and is firmly in calculations.

Caused 28-1 surprise at Uttoxeter (2m, heavy) in December, his fifth start over hurdles, but seems to have lost his way this year and drying ground may not be ideal for him here; tongue-tie fitted.

Form & Verdict

Won off this mark over hurdles at Kelso (2m5f, good to soft) in May and he seems versatile ground-wise; however, this 11yo hasn't been at his best more recently and needs to produce a bigger run on this belated chase debut.

Appeared to have a bit left in the tank when scoring off 3lb lower over C&D (good to soft) in May but not much has gone to plan since and pulled up after racing too freely at Hexham on Wednesday; comes with risk.

Placed twice in a row in May (2m4f/2m5f, good to soft/good; also effective on soft ground) and he's well handicapped on that form; however, he's failed to shine on his last three starts.

Runner-up off 8lb higher in this race (good to soft) last year but he's lost his way since last July and has been pulled in last three runs; now returns to chasing after a break but he needs a major turnaround; cheekpieces worn last time are removed.

Well handicapped on old form over hurdles and fences; returned from a long absence at Sedgefield (2m5f, soft) last month and looked threatening when coming down late on in a handicap chase; he was strong in the market there; commands respect.

Inconsistent over hurdles but he's got his act together over fences with runner-up efforts at Newcastle (2m7f, good) and Leicester (2m6f, good to firm); claims if showing up in similar form after an eight-week break.
