Form & Verdict

Off the mark over hurdles at Ayr (2m5f, heavy) in Janunary and followed up off mark 1lb higher than today's here (2m7f, good to soft) the following month; made rather underwhelming seasonal/chase debut in October but ran big race when close fifth at Wetherby (3m, heavy) last month and is sure to appreciate today's ease in grade.

Form & Verdict

Safely held on last month's handicap hurdle debut at Chepstow (2m7f, heavy) and unseated rider when fitted with cheekpieces (retained) here a fortnight ago but was placed in a point last year and remains unexposed, so there is hope she'll fare better now chasing.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 7yo who set an honest pace and ran considerably better than eventual 41l defeat might suggest on last month's seasonal/handicap/chase debut at Market Rasen (2m5f, good to soft); can play a significant role if handling the slower ground here; tongue-tie added.

Lightly raced point winner who was an encouraging third at Bangor (2m4f, heavy) last month on his second chase start, when making a bad mistake at the third fence and weakening in the straight; today's slightly shorter trip may help and he's a possible.

Fell on last month's seasonal/chase debut but belied 33-1 odds when battling on well for second at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy; no threat to winner) 19 days ago and has obvious each-way claims if in similar form again.

Creditable second at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy) in November but has not built on that effort and he failed to complete the last twice, unseating rider early at this course (2m4f) latest; still a maiden.

Form & Verdict

Went the wrong way last season but, following a break, arrested his decline when second to progressive rival at Sedgefield (2m5f, soft) in October; it's hard to tell whether he'll build on that peformance here but he's effective on heavy ground and remains well handicapped.

C&D winner who regained winning form in returning cheekpieces at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) last month, though he may have been fortunate to do so (only danger fell two out); 3lb higher, but the return to this trip is probably a plus and he holds frame claims at least.
