Couldn't get his head in front on the Flat for Karl Burke but he was a winner at Limerick when an even money favourite in a maiden hurdle. Looks vulnerable back in this sphere though.
Returned to form with a decent effort last time out when placed. Just one win to his name and better efforts have come in much softer conditions than what he will get here.
Just one Flat win to his name when getting his head in front at Newcaslte in 2016. Running well over hurdles lately and back below his last Flat mark so can't be ruled out.
Two wins from seven starts, however well beaten on all five turf runs. Starts out for a new yard and others preferred from a bad draw here.
Listed winner at Kempton in 2016 but hasn't won since and seemingly lost his ability. Has a propensity to start slowly and well beaten on all recent efforts.
Consisten once he hits some form but he's been on a poor run of form for some time now. Might want more cut in the ground than what he will get here too.
Only win since his maiden success in 2015 came in a claiming race at Naas last year. Opposable on recent form in handicap company here.
Two-time course winner here in 2015 but has not won since. In okay form over fences when last seen and market can reveal expectations on his return.
Rattled off a hat-trick on AW at Wolverhampton in 2016 and generally runs well on the Flat, though hasn't managed to get her head in front since. Not ruled out if ready to go on her return to action.
Still a maiden after seven starts and looks in need of relief from the handicapper. Starts out for a new yard here.
Got his first win since a maiden success when winning at Dundalk in March. Returned with another solid effort when placed back at that course last time and still well-handicapped on old form. Interesting runner.
A winner over this trip at Bath in 2016. Largely out of form over hurdles in recent times and return to the Flat last time was disappointing so he will need to bounce back here. Wears first-time blinkers.
Losing run now stands at 22 and still above his last winning mark. Hard to fancy on recent evidence.
Course winner here last year and well-handicapped on bits of his form. Blotted his copybook two starts back at Chelmsford when he refused to race but ran okay back at that course last time and has no previous with poor behavior. Interesting runner.
Well beaten on all four starts and tailed off on handicap debut last time. Looks limited.
Not won on the Flat since winning in France back in 2013. Losing run in this sphere now stands at 15 and while he ran okay last time in a competitive handicap, he needs to prove he can do it on better ground here.
Unplaced on each of his 12 starts and his two Flat runs have been very poor. Wide draw and others preferred.
Only won once since 2014 when winning at Musselburgh last year. Struggled off his revised mark since and others preferred.
One win from 15 starts came over C&D from a much higher mark than he returns on here. May need the run here but very well handicapped on old form on ground should suit.
Unplaced on all seven career starts but some promise two starts back at Naas in soft ground. First-time hood may help but wide draw won't and others preferred.
Yet to win in seven starts and her better efforts have come on softer ground. Plenty on her plate here.
Got his second career win on the board at Dundalk two starts back and worth another try back up at this trip. Ran well again at Dundalk last time and each-way claims.
Won twice over hurdles but has shown almost nothing in three Flat starts. Wide draw won't help and plenty on his plate returned to this sphere.
