Two Hereford wins over about 2m6f on good ground last autumn, followed by two places; 129-day absence asks a question but he'll be a contender if resuming on song.

Well held when third of six on debut in August, and it's hard to nail down what he achieved when second of four behind 2-15 favourite at Fontwell (2m5d, good to soft) last month; remains unexposed but others have more compelling form.

Scrambled home in three-way photo-finish to score on handicap debut at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good) last month; not seen to same effect over 3m2f on soft ground three weeks ago but retains scope to build on his winning performance now back on a sound surface.

Progressive 7yo who has collected three wins this season (2m3f-2m7f, good-heavy) and posted another personal best when close second at Sandown (2m4f, soft) a fortnight ago; nudged up another 2lb for that but good 5lb claimer Freddie Gingell is enlisted here; major player.

Looked a little flattered to get within 2l of Gyllen at Taunton the last time but that was another sound effort from this in-form 7yo and dropping back from 3m won't count against him; continues to edge up the weights, however.

Started off for James Owen with two 2m4f wins in the summer and was placed on both subsequent outings (2m6f/2m7f); may yet have a bigger run in him and features prominently in calculations.

Unproven on soft/heavy; has form figures of 11234112 (hurdles/fences) for current yard, clear second at Southwell (2m4f) returned to chasing most recently; hit with another rise in the weights but Alex Chadwick takes off 7lb; in the mix.
