Useful staying jumpers in pedigree; no threat behind The Gypsy Davey on recent Taunton debut but her sixth place was quite creditable given it was her first outing; likely to need more of a trip than 2m though.

Hasn't progressed from a likeable hurdling debut at Ludlow in December and was some 24l off Marmalade Time at Doncaster only 20 days ago; has a lot to prove, but Harry Skelton gets the leg up for the first time and handicap newcomers from this yard always command a second look.

Better could have been expected at Ludlow (2m, soft) 11 days ago but prior to that she kept on for a promising third of 15 there (2m, soft) in December on her debut; this step up in trip could be a positive move and she retains potential for her top trainer.

Ordinary Flat winner; just under 3l behind Kartoon And Co when highly tried in Huntingdon's Chatteris Fen on hurdling debut and another good run behind respected opposition here since (both on good to soft); bit to find and questionable whether today's testing conditions will see him to the same effect.

Second foal of owner's French Oaks winner Star Of Seville; he showed ability on the Flat for the Gosdens, winning at Newcastle (1m2f, AW; RPR 77) in October, and he's joined another top yard for his hurdling career; could play a leading role on stable debut.
