Winner over 7f in claiming company for Richard Hannon last March. Held in a seller on only subsequent appearance and making his handicap and stable debut with cheekpieces tried today.
Six time winner and beaten just 1L when finishing runner-up over 7f here last month. Fair effort despite a poor finishing position subsequently and remains of interest.
Running well without winning here this winter including when runner-up over 6f last time out. Return to 7f unlikely to inconvenience too much and has a good draw today.
Broke his maiden over C&D in December but held off this 4lb higher mark since and likely to need to improve if he's to take this contest.
Maiden winner over 1m here last May but struggled in handicap company since and wears a hood for the first time today.
Victorious on handicap debut over 1m here in December. Raised 3lb for that success but remains open to improvement and is one to note as he bids to follow up.
Broke his maiden at the tenth time of asking when victorious over 1m here last time out. Raised 7lb for that success and remains of interest in this contest.
Best effort in four starts for this yard came when finishing third over C&D last month. Held since and blinkers are worn for the first time today.
Placed off this mark on each of his last two starts and was a winner off a 5lb higher mark on turf last August. Interesting runner today.
Well beaten since winning a 7f maiden at Sligo (heavy) in August 2016. Likely to struggle once more in this contest.
