Successful three times over hurdles but failed to complete on two of her chase starts in 2016 and she is one to note on her return to fences off a mark just 2lb higher than for her most recent hurdles victory.
Dual hurdles winner and placed five times from 14 starts over fences. Held twice since returning from a break and drops in trip having finished fourth over 3m here last time.
Successful in a handicap hurdle over 2m1f at Carlisle (soft) in April and put in a fair effort at Southwell subsequently. Pulled up on both previous chase outings.
Victorious on heavy ground over hurdles but pulled up on soft ground at Bangor on his most recent appearance earlier this year. Worth a check in the market on chase debut.
Placed here on good-to-soft ground over hurdles last August. Well held on chase debut over 2m5f at Carlisle (soft) last time out and drop in trip and better ground forecast here should see him in a better light.
Maiden after 11 starts under rules and beaten 44L when making his debut over fences at Carlisle (2m5f, soft) last month. Has placed off a higher mark over hurdles in the past.
Beaten 5L when finishing third in a handicap hurdle over 2m4f at Sedgefield (good) on his final outing for Mark Walford. Market support would be interesting on stable and chase debut following a break.
18 race maiden and well beaten in two starts over fences earlier this year. Has had wind surgery since pulling up at Sedgefield (soft) in March and is racing from out of the handicap in this.
