Consistent 5yo who is fine over 2m and 2m4f; heavy ground perhaps not ideal last time when first tried in a tongue-tie and could run well if back on song, for all that he might now be too high in the weights.

Has shown respectable form at Musselburgh (soft) since upped to 2m4f, winning then creditable third; consistent sort who has solid claims off an unaltered mark; tongue-tie fitted.

Ended last season with a good effort and made quite pleasing reappearance in October but has not been firing on all cylinders since; has more to prove than a few of these.

Good season last term included two wins (one here) and culminated in his second in a series final at this track (3m, good to soft); however, this season he's followed a respectable reappearance with two backward steps; well treated if surging back to his best.

Won twice on heavy ground at Hexham in November (2m) and may need that sort of stamina test these days; got outpaced at Ayr last time when behind Mack The Man.

Exploited some significant help from the handicapper when winning twice on heavy ground at Hexham in November but has not quite been at the same level since; younger rivals appeal more.

Four-time hurdle winner; made a good start for her current yard when going close at Kelso (2m, good) in October but she's not matched that form in three runs since; handles most ground and now drops back into a Class 5 event but she needs to rediscover her spark.

Verdict

On the back of his solid reappearance effort, DUYFKEN (nap) can show further progress and defy top weight. Possible improver Toucan Sam looks interesting back from a layoff, especially if the market speaks favourably.[Steve Boow]
