Dual C&D winner including when taking this contest by 36L a year ago. Fair efforts over hurdles the last twice and likely to attempt to make all with his regular jockey in the saddle once more.
Handicap chase winner on good ground over 3m2f in May last year. Absent since and wears a visor for the first time on his hunter chase debut.
Good ground handicap chase winner over C&D last July but held by Creevytennant on there running here the following month. Unraced since pulling up at Exeter in October.
Victorious in a similar race to this on soft ground here last time out. Interesting to see how he fares given this looks a much more competitive affair.
Won three times in this sphere in recent years including when the impressive 64L winner of a Hexham (soft) contest over this trip last month. Likely to run well once more.
Failed to complete on four of his five starts prior to finishing runner-up in a Restricted point-to-point last month. Looks up against it in this company.
Placed in a point-to-point at Mosshouses (good) earlier this month. More needed with blinkers applied for the first time on this occasion.
Placed in three point-to-point contests this year but finished well behind Cultram Abbey at Kelso in January and wears a visor for the first time.
