Better known as a chaser these days, with three of his four wins in that discipline gained last year; returns to hurdling over a trip short of his best and looks vulnerable.

Form & Verdict

Two seconds (one C&D) early this year started chase career and he has great chance on that form; his five runs since (one over hurdles) have not been near that level; absent 12 weeks and needs to return refreshed but, with James King booked and so far down the weights, he's still one to note.

Hurdles winner who has finished runner-up in three of his five completed starts over fences, including when beaten a neck at Ludlow (2m4f, good to soft) three weeks ago (clear of the third); 4lb rise not the end of the world, though he still has to prove himself on soft ground or worse.

J: Gearoid Harney

T: David Pipe

Not the easiest to predict (to put it mildly) but had one of his good days when runner-up over 2m7f here last month (under Gearoid Harney); whether he'll repeat it is another matter and stamina for this far isn't entirely copperbottomed.

Form & Verdict

First two wins were at this track, including this race last year, and he also had two wins at Hereford (3m1f/2m5f) this February, all on good or firmer but he has run creditably on good to soft; made a solid return at Hereford nine days ago and should be seriously involved.

J: Sean Bowen

Has struggled more often than not this season and he was pulled up at Huntingdon a fortnight ago; however, this two-time course winner was a good third over C&D (soft) two starts ago and could be a contender now back here if the first-time blinkers (replacing cheekpieces) have a positive effect.
