Ex-Irish 6yo who comfortably beat two of these rivals at Fontwell (2m1f, good) on debut for new yard; something was possibly amiss last time; may still have more to offer at this level and remains of interest.

Something of a Taunton specialist; respectable second, albeit no match for the winner, at Wincanton on seasonal debut; has done her winning off lower marks in lower grades, so this looks a difficult task.

Prominent racer with a course win to his name and he was good value for his narrow winning margin under Elizabeth Gale last time at Fakenham (2m, good; 5lb lower); prior to that he was only placed in a couple of handicaps won by today's rivals and he might be vulnerable in this strong a handicap.

Won a juvenile hurdle here (2m, good) in November 2021 but he has mixed record since and was beaten 29l in a Cheltenham handicap last month; now switches to fences but this lightly raced 6yo is on a reduced mark and he could be a serious factor if he takes to this new discipline.

Useful Flat form when fifth of nine in the Queen Alexandra at Royal Ascot (2m5f, good to firm; 40-1) this June; won soft-ground bumper here in 2021 and 2m novice handicap hurdle this May; improvement is needed but the step back up in trip offers some hope.
