Useful over hurdles and versatile with regards ground but well beaten in two recent efforts, tailed off each time and more needed here.
Well beaten and unplaced on all seven of his starts, failing to complete on last two outings, hard to fancy.
His form so far over hurdles has been modest but he looks as though he's been bubbling under whilst waiting for a mark. Makes his handicap debut here off a break and looks the type to improve for this sort of test; watch the market.
Well beaten on return to action on the Flat last time but generally a consistent sort and may have needed the run. Off-putting he's still a maiden though.
Not won since 2015 but ran well at Carlisle last time and may come on for that outing. Well-handicapped on old form.
Pulled up at Uttoxeter last time and has won just one of her 16 starts. May want softer ground than this and others preferred.
Well beaten on first start since a wind op at Taunton and still a maiden after nine starts on the Flat and four over hurdles. Plenty to find on form.
Still a maiden after 17 starts (seven on Flat) but ran well at Wolverhampton last time out when runner-up of 10. Has shaped with some promise over hurdles before so no ruled out on return to this code.
Won a Wolverhampton maiden on the Flat but shown next to nothing over fences and hard to fancy on all known form.
Ran with some promise here in 2016 when runner-up of 10 but shown nothing more recently. Has her first start since a wind op and has plenty to find on form.
Won a bumper on debut in 2013 but has shown nothing in two starts since returning from a four year absence.
Shown nothing in two starts this year, last of nine at Chepstow before he was pulled up at Towcester last time. Needs to bounce back.
