0-12 over hurdles and much more exposed than some of these but kept on for very respectable third on last month's stable debut at Plumpton (2m4f, good; clear winner has won twice again since) and will probably be competitive again here.

Never looked dangerous when well-held fifth here (2m, soft) last month, after a break, and now 0-10 over hurdles; getting back on good ground ought to be in his favour but others have more pressing claims.

Irish point winner in 2022; well beaten on handicap debut for Mike Smith at Sedgefield (2m4f, soft) in February but remains unexposed and is well worth a glance in the betting before today's stable debut.

Just a respectable fourth at Stratford (2m2f, good to soft) last month and now 0-7 over hurdles but lost out only by a nose after keeping on well in the straight at Ludlow (2m, soft) two starts ago, and that performance makes him of interest here.

Failed to complete in two points and she's been tailed off at big prices in three hurdle runs this winter; still early days and now goes handicapping off a lowly mark but she needs to show a lot more.

Fair Flat-racer who won over 1m2f on fast ground last summer (RPR 69); showed no significant promise in four soft-ground novice/maiden hurdles in February-April and is 11lb out of the weights for today's handicap hurdle debut but this switch to good ground may enable some of that Flat ability to come to the fore; hood removed; tongue-tie fitted.

Placed in Stratford maiden hurdle (2m, good to soft) for Alastair Ralph last spring but things have not gone well in two handicaps (hurdle/chase) for new yard this year; didn't get very far at Southwell last time and has questions to answer back in this sphere.
