Struggled since finishing third over 2m4f at Worcester (good-to-soft) last September. Handicap mark is falling as a result but more needed if he's to take this contest.
In good form of late following up a win at Fontwell (good-to-soft) over an extended 2m5f with placed efforts at Wincanton and last time out at Newton Abbot. Quicker ground forecast here should suit.
Placed on hurdling debut at Wetherby (2m, soft) and best effort since came when 7L fourth over C&D on good-to-soft ground last time out. One to note on handicap debut.
Good ground Uttoxeter maiden hurdle winner over 2m4f last July and some fair efforts in defeat since. Finished third off this mark when last in action back in November.
Maiden after seven starts but signs of improvement when sixth on handicap debut over an extended 2m5f at Wincanton (good-to-soft) last time. Interesting to see if he can improve on that.
Heavy ground maiden hurdle winner over 2m3f at Fontwell in January but struggled under a penalty in two subsequent outings. Making his handicap debut in this contest.
Victorious three times over hurdles but well beaten the last twice. Well handicapped as a result and market support would be interesting on this occasion.
Seven race maiden and finished fourth over 2m6f at Stratford (good-to-soft) in a novice contest last time out. Promising conditional on board once more for handicap debut.
Winner of this race off a 1lb lower mark 12 months ago but has struggled over fences in recent starts. Useful amateur returns for the first time since last years victory.
Soft ground handicap hurdle winner at Musselburgh in January and has run well in two outings since. Tackling this trip for the first time.
Good fourth in a competitive novice handicap hurdle at Ascot (good-to-soft) over an extended 2m7f in December but pulled up on his only start since. Interesting to see how he fares in this.
Signs of ability in a couple of bumpers and four starts over hurdles. Held on handicap debut last time out however and more needed if she's to take this.
Bumper winner on good ground just over a year ago but struggled since joining this yard. Worth a check in the market now switched to handicaps.
