Gained second win under Rules at Sedgefield last time. Seemingly wants plenty of cut in the ground so conditions should suit here and she's capable of making her presence felt again only up 5lb for a yard in form.
Unplaced in all eight of his starts. Plugged on past beaten rivals last time out over C&D but needs to improve if he's to get his head in front here.
Consistent performer who got his head in front at Lingfield last month and not disgraced in follow up bid when not beaten far at Warwick last time. Races off the same mark here and has leading claims if he can settle better.
Eight-race maiden who has changed hands again since last outing at Uttoxeter in 2016. Has looked as if he's capable of winning races but significant absence is enough to temper enthusiasm this time around.
Ended a near two year losing run at Doncaster last time out in a conditional jockeys' race. Only gone up 3lb for that and certainly well-handicapped on old form but best recent efforts have come on better ground. Each-way claims if in the same form.
Either tailed off or failed to finish on each of his eight starts. No signs of improvement when last of nine here last time out and hard to fancy on all known form.
Unplaced on all 12 starts since joining this yard, all in hurdles company but has run okay in some low grade affairs. First-time visor needs to eke out more to be involved here.
Won his chase debut for previous yard but unplaced on all 10 hurdles starts and shown very little since joining this yard until an improved effort last time at Newcastle when out of the handicap. Needs to build on that now.
Tailed off or failed to finish on all 10 of his career starts. Has an absence to overcome and looks worth opposing in first-time headgear.
