Hurdles winner here last year over 2m off a mark of 106, struggled to land any blow in three chase starts, including when pulled up in a Newton Abbot handicap over 2m5f in September. Down in trip for return.
Well held in bumpers and over hurdles when last seen making very little impact and was handed a stiff-looking mark for her handicap debut. Now switches to fences; risky proposition.
Finished just under 7L third of 10 at Warwick on chase bow this month (2m, good), which was an improvement on hurdles form. Likely will have more to come with that experience bagged.
Modest sort with a 1-19 record over fences, win coming at Huntingdon (regular there) over 2m4f in November 2016. Not a lot to enthuse about since, including two runs this spring over this sort of trip.
Returned from a 900-day absence and failed to ignite in starts at Fontwell and Plumpton last month (both over further), will need to see some positives before willing to weigh in behind. Previous wins came in 2014.
Worcester winner in 2016 over this sort of trip, posted a solid effort there earlier this month when runner-up over the trip from a rating of 73. Anything but consistent but has won around here before and second in February.
0-36 and hasn't beaten a single horse in any of his last 13 starts, including when refusing at the last fence here last month (beaten at the time).
