Both chasing wins gained on good to firm at Exeter, the latest 13 months ago; didn't fire last season so enough to prove on return from five months off, though has won after a break and 9lb lower than for latest win.

Unplaced all eight hurdling starts and was beaten about 54l on last month's chasing debut at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft); effectively 2lb higher from further out of the weights here; needs the added headgear to make a huge difference.

Won two bumpers before coming up short when her sights were raised; long odds-on when winning easily at Chepstow (2m, soft) on her second start over hurdles; third at Lingfield (heavy) on latest was better form, but behind two of these and this race will demand a lot more; tongue tied first time.

Showed some useful form in novice hurdles last season and made promising chasing debut when fourth at Exeter (2m3f, good to soft; form has worked out well) in December; had valid excuse when well beaten last time (burst blood vessel) and has slipped to a very tempting mark.

Useful 2m novice hurdler last season; remote in a 2m3f Listed novice chase on reappearance but the step up to 2m6f here for a seven-runner novice handicap at turn of the year saw him in a new light when he stayed on gamely for clearcut win over Fern Hill; something to prove away from soft/heavy ground but otherwise he now looks promising as well as unexposed at 2m6f+.

At least back in the weights this time, and last month's Wincanton sixth (1m7f, soft) wasn't devoid of hope, not being the first time he's stayed on up to a point late on; more testing track on this occasion may help, though extremely likely a hurdling personal best will be required.

All-the-way winner at Taunton (2m7f, good to firm) last April and he ran respectably in blinkers (now removed) when third at Hereford (3m1f) in November, but he returns from wind surgery over a trip arguably short of his best.

On a handy mark on last season's best hurdle form on soft and heavy going; didn't go unbacked on his chasing debut at Exeter in early December and, although beaten some 24l, he showed some aptitude for fences and the winner was the very progressive L'Homme Presse; not ruled out.

Soft-ground course bumper winner who is on a handy mark on last season's best hurdle form on soft and heavy going; lacks experience over fences and was tailed off over hurdles on reappearance in October, but good ground may not have suited and he's no forlorn hope if suited by conditions.
