Beat all bar Loch Linnhe when runner up at Hexham on his most recent start (2m4f good), and should be able to win races over fences from his current handicap mark. Wears first time cheek-pieces.
The 'winner' of the 3m Perth void race fiasco in September, who thankfully for connections managed to scramble home on his next start at Kelso (2m5½f good). Quieter when last seen in October 2017, but not ruled out on his return to the track.
At his best around Hexham (a two-time winner there), but has also proved himself to be effective elsewhere. Off the track since early September, so might feasibly need this race, but was a C&D runner up in May 2017 from a 2lb higher mark.
C&D winner in February 2016, and beaten in a three-way photo here on Boxing Day when edged out by Dica (soft). Could prove sharper for his recent Kelso run with the first time visor now applied.
A 15 race maiden in point-to-points, and hasn't set the world alight under rules either, so barring accidents about the only thing that can be taken on trust is that he'll not be winning.
Beaten just over 5L at Hexham last month (third) on his final start for Kenny Johnson. Capable between 2m4f-3m in his yesteryear for Chris Grant, but can his new trainer revive him at the grand old age of eleven?
