Only two hurdle wins came back in 2015; very in and out both over obstacles and on the level in the meantime, and has plenty to prove following poor show at Kempton already this month.
Capable performer on his day over fences and hurdles but has some temperament issues. Won over C&D in October but not looked like repeating that in efforts since.
Milan gelding made winning start in handicaps at Worcester recently and should go well again over slightly longer trip with 5lb added.
Dual purpose performer has been a bit out of sorts recently on the AW but did land a C&D handicap in November. 2lb above that mark now and sports a first-time visor.
Remains a maiden but took a step in the right direction last time when fourth at Stratford over a slightly longer trip. Was only 2L down at the line, visor goes on now and cannot be ruled out on the back of that run.
Winner over C&D in March and ran pleasing race that wasn't without problems since at Stratford. Capable off this mark as such and should go well back here.
His only career win came on the Flat all the way back in 2013, looks an unlikely winner of this contest.
