Ex-Irish; two non-completions over fences for this yard before springing a 50-1 surprise in a 2m5f handicap hurdle on soft ground at Wincanton (4lb lower; under Martin McIntyre); heavy ground perhaps a factor in his no-show at Exeter.

Ludlow regular who was winning for the first time away from that track when coming home 8l to the good at Chepstow (2m3f, heavy) ten days ago; doesn't need the mud and has to be strongly considered under a penalty, which is effectively erased by her jockey's claim.

Bumper runner-up (2m, good) who was an encouraging third of 15 at Wincanton (1m7f, heavy) a fortnight ago on his second hurdle start; he was no match for the front two and improvement is needed today, but he's in top hands and the step up in trip could well be a positive.

Kempton second (2m5f, soft) last March was one of his peak efforts; 10lb lower today, having failed to fire in the same way this season (over fences initially); back hurdling on last three starts, best of those on second occasion; place chance but others are more convincing for the win.
