Form & Verdict

Back in prime form since blinkers were added in February, winning twice on heavy ground at favourite track Wincanton (3m1f); latest 7lb rise asks quite a lot of him but he could quite plausibly have untapped potential over marathon trips.

Form & Verdict

0-6 over fences but was running a big race before falling at third-last fence here (3m, heavy) in February and was a respectable third when upped to 3m4f at Haydock (soft) last month; must be considered.

Dual hurdle winner who is 0-7 over fences; again he travelled well for a long way last time at Exeter (3m6f, heavy) but ultimately came up shy behind a 6l winner with only one other completing; others might just see this out stronger.

Form & Verdict

Inconsistent in recent seasons and his stamina for 3m6f on heavy ground is not copper-bottomed but he runs this track well and is well handicapped on form as recent as the autumn; can't be ruled out.

Tailed off on Cheltenham's cross-country course in November but respectable efforts on either side of that, albeit still beneath his best form when fourth at Ludlow latterly; one or two others have more going for them but he's got an each-way chance on ground he handles.

Well suited by a slog in the mud and returned to form with keeping-on second in West Wales National at Ffos Las (3m4f, heavy) a week ago; Joe Anderson claims a useful 5lb today; major player if in the right mood again.

Had wind surgery last July but made a laboured return in the Welsh National and his Warwick run 17 days ago was also lacklustre, even considering the 3m trip; wore cheekpieces on last three starts last term, then visor/blinkers this season; 5lb claimer is recruited; has big questions to answer regarding current form but this test would suit if he's on his game, as he showed when second in it off the same mark last year.

Off the mark in Britain with clearcut success here (3m, good to soft) in November and added to his tally at Taunton (2m7f, soft) in February; below form on latest outing and seemingly overlooked by Charlie Deutsch here but further progress is possible if this longer trip suits.

Successful in two of his last four starts over fences, the latest when beating three rivals at Taunton (2m7f, soft) last month; twice well beaten in between those wins and despite that latest success, it's debatable whether deep ground is what he really wants; could be vulnerable if conditions remain testing.
