First past the post at Beverley in July only to lose the race after hanging into two rivals. Modest form so far over hurdles but better expected now handicapping. Will get maximum assistance from the saddle but the lack of headgear is a worry.
Landed three races on the Flat this summer but has bumped into better horses on his last two starts. This is probably easier and he should reach the frame at least.
Beaten by a dual subsequent winner last time and his rider's claim helps to offset the handicapper's reaction. 2-9 around here and would not want the ground to get any softer.
Produced from off the pace to improve his record over hurdles to 2-18. Had the race run to suit him that day and a follow up looks less likely off his revised mark.
Record of 1-17 and best form has come on more testing ground than forecast. Went well on reappearance here last December.
Few signs of ability and forcing tactics saw him finish tailed off here a month ago. Makes handicap debut in modest company but remains difficult to recommend.
Tailed off at Hexham last week and the fitting of a visor needs to produce dramatic results. Unlikely contender, even at this level.
Well beaten on sole start in this country two years ago. Off the track since and hard to fancy with stable out of form.
Last of three finishers in a poor race over fences two weeks ago and has plenty to find in order to be a threat.
Over two years since his last win and his best Flat form has come at Chepstow. Has done nothing over hurdles there and elsewhere. Stamina doubts persist in this sphere.
Off the track 18 months since finishing tailed off following a mistake in a Wetherby novice handicap. Supported that day and obviously thought capable of better.
Old timer retains ability but appears to reserve it for Sedgefield and more testing conditions than are forecast this afternoon.
Poor mare who has achieved little so far. Makes no appeal from 10lb out of the weights despite a good amateur in the saddle.
