Form & Verdict

Belatedly made the most of his much reduced mark when winning comfortably on the drop back to 2m4f at Bangor nine days ago (good); back up 8lb but if he's turned a corner then he might well follow up for last year's winning stable; handles give underfoot.

Form & Verdict

Better known for his chasing exploits so encouraging to see him win a 2m4f handicap hurdle at Southwell a month ago (good to soft; good ground is ideal), albeit off a much lower mark; runs off last winning chase rating which was only a year ago.

J: Mr Alex Chadwick

T: James Owen

Won a handicap chase on Aintree's Mildmay course last summer for this yard and a point this February, again on his favoured good ground; struggles when it's softer and he took a heavy fall at The Chair in the Foxhunters' at Aintree last month; has never been as effective over hurdles.

Form & Verdict

Never better than last spring/summer and has returned from a break in good form, last time finishing a 9l fourth over C&D; does have little margin for error off this mark and he'd prefer further in an ideal world.

Form & Verdict

The last of his three hurdle wins came off this mark (2m4f, soft); his jumping lacked fluency when well held on last month's chase debut (2m4f, good) and that's a concern.

Two good-ground wins last season and back on the scoresheet at Wincanton (2m4f, soft) last November; another good run when third at Kelso (2m5f, good to soft) three weeks ago and he may be able to build on that; chance.

Good-ground specialist so watch the weather; excellent strike-rate over fences and ran a solid race in defeat last time at Perth (2m4f, good to firm); chance if conditions remain favourable.

Form & Verdict

Ideally wants good ground but ran well in a soft-ground Ludlow hunter chase last time (early April) when ultimately outstayed by the odds-on favourite; not as good as he was but can live with this mark.

J: Mr Ben Sutton

T: Fergal O’Brien

A long time without a win and wouldn't want the ground too soft, but he was a good third of six in a Kempton handicap (2m4f, good to soft) on his penultimate run and that form makes him a strong contender.

Form & Verdict

Eight-time winner when trained by Paul Nicholls (2m3f-2m4f); yet to fire for current yard but showed more last time at Cartmel where a late mistake didn't help and the 3m1f would have stretched him; could go well.
