Won three in a row last summer (2m-2m4f) and seems gradually to have worked his way back to form this year; not yet proven over this far but ran well over 2m4f here last month; could have a say.

Form & Verdict

0-7 over hurdles but runner-up on last two outings, more recently behind much-improved mare at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good to soft) last month; will be fine on today's faster ground; can make her presence felt again.

Form & Verdict

Began hurdling career with three very inauspicious runs but fared considerably better when fourth at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good) last month, despite not looking wildly enthusiastic; swaps usual cheekpieces for first-time visor on this handicap debut; no surprise if he features.

Soundly beaten in first two handicaps for Philip Kirby (both over 2m4f this spring) and is now with a new stable; may benefit from today's return to good ground; worth a glance in the betting.

Fair form in three bumpers and three novice hurdles but improvement needed on handicap debut.

Form & Verdict

Rediscovered some form when second of five at Newton Abbot (2m5f, soft) in May but this 10yo is no longer the force of old and younger rivals have much more appealing profiles.

Form & Verdict

Beaten under 6l when fifth (just behind Mattie Ross) on handicap debut at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good to soft) in May and is 5lb lower here but needs to bounce back from a poor performance over 2m4f last month.

Fell heavily mid-race on latest outing and now 0-11 over hurdles but was second to a big improver at Huntingdon (3m1f, good) two starts ago and is a contender if judged on that performance.

Fell at first flight on handicap debut in May but showed no ill effects when very respectable third in Southwell maiden (2m4f, good) last month and could easily have more to offer over this longer trip; one to consider.

Placed for first time in seven-race hurdling career when chasing home Mattie Ross at Market Rasen (2m7f, good) last month; that was a sound effort but he almost certainly needs to take another step forward here.

Pulled up in first three handicaps last year (including chase debut in December) but got back on track in first-time blinkers at Leicester (2m4f, soft) last month, rallying for third; this 3m point winner could build on that latest run now back up in trip if the headgear maintains its effect.

Came good over hurdles at seventh attempt, drawing over 5l clear of Moro Rock to win readily at Market Rasen (2m7f, good) last month; 6lb higher in a more competitive race here but further progress is possible.
