His second to easy winner Two Taffs at Carlisle last October stands out like a beacon among the rest of his moderate form, and he's looked very one paced on more than one occasion this season. Step back up in trip may help but a bit to prove now.
Only a glimmer of promise in three starts so far and has plenty on his plate to get involved here. Will be of more interest once handicapped.
Winner of a point-to-point two years ago but only seen twice since. Far from disgraced in two bumpers behind some decent sorts and not beaten far when last seen, and may run a little better than likely big odds would suggest if jumping fluently on hurdles debut here.
A poor effort at Hereford last time out could be put down to the soft ground there, which isn't to everyone's liking, and on his previous efforts at Ludlow he can be given a solid chance. Should stay this trip and suspicion is there's more to come back on better ground.
Was running to a consistent level in novice hurdles and chases when last seen, and his fourth tio Winterlude here at Bangor last July reads well enough in the context of this moderate race. Stays this far and if fit after a break, should be in the mix.
In good hands but simply didn't show enough at Huntingdon on her debut, with her jumping technique leaving plenty to be desired as well. Must improve to get involved.
