C&D winner back in the day but hasn't won for a long time (Oct 2015). Ran well in a handicap last time though and with riders claim he should be bang in the mix here once again.
Hasn't been seen on the flat for almost a year. Hurdles from at the start of the winter was poor. Will appreciate this drop in grade though and has won off a break in the past. Well suited by conditions and should be tough to beat if on a going day.
Was out of form under both codes when last seen at the back end of last year. Should appreciate this drop in grade on the back of a break and conditions suit.
Previous C&D winner that has been running ok in handicap company of late. Doesn't have an awful lot to find on the figures here and is in with an each-way shout at least.
Another that has won over C&D. Out of form in handicaps the last twice but this is much easier and should be pretty tough to keep out the frame.
19 race maiden under both codes and beaten a long way at Perth on final start over fences. Up against it here at the weights. First flat run for 524 days.
Beaten 164L on most recent start over hurdles last week. Impossible to recommend in current form under these conditions.
Placed over 1m2f for Sir Michael Stoute in 2012 but well beaten since. Beaten 131L over C&D in a claimer last month and a similar story is likely here.
A winner on both turf (1m4f) and Tapeta (2m) during the early months of 2017, but has failed to recapture that form since. Well beaten here in a seller last time and needs more.
