Not an easy one to predict but seemed to respond positively to first-time cheekpieces when rallying second at Warwick (3m, good) in May; still unexposed over staying trips; big player if headgear continues to aid.

Well beaten in three handicap hurdles during the winter (1m7f-2m5f) and also in two handicap chases this spring (2m5f/2m7f), latterly with today's headgear combination added; big leap of faith needed to support him.

Finished well for second at Exeter (2m3f, good to firm) in October but was tailed off over C&D last month, after a break, and has basically become disappointing; others have more appealing profiles.

J: Jordan Nailor

Well handicapped on his Huntingdon win (2m7f, good) last October but he's generally struggled since and was a well-held seventh of 14 at Taunton last month; comes with risks attached and he ideally wants quicker ground.

Placed off 4lb higher on chasing debut at Leicester (2m6f, good) in early 2023 and won over hurdles in good style last summer; good claims on that evidence but was well beaten on last two hurdling starts, having bled from the nose both times, and comes with risk.

Largely consistent in early part of last season, and deserved his hard-fought win at Bangor (2m4f, soft) in October; fell on last month's reappearance outing but has possibilities here if all goes to plan; refitted blinkers the headgear of choice today.

Generally in good form this season, and rallied well to open his account at Bangor (2m4f, soft) a fortnight ago; will be fine on today's faster ground and is evidently in good heart but his poor record on right-handed tracks is a worry here.

Three-time point winner; unplaced in four hurdle races since switched to racing under rules in February, most recently when never-dangerous sixth on handicap debut at Southwell (3m, good) this month, but might be seen in a better light on today's chasing debut.

Dual hurdle winner during 2021-22 season; returned from long absence with fairly respectable fourth on chasing debut at Taunton (2m7f, good to soft) in November but wasn't seen again until a poor run there in April; needs subsequent wind op to have made a difference.
