One hurdle win from nine starts. Third at Plumpton (2m4½f, good) last time but beaten a very long way. Needs to improve on that form today and makes chasing debut.
Has improved since switching to fences and another good effort here over 2m (good) last time when finishing a close up third. Step up in trip should suit here and likely to give his running once again.
Backed into favourite on only second start for this yard at kempton (2m. good) last time. Travelled strongly but found nothing when push came to shove. Step up in trip may help and on a good mark on Irish form.
Consistent enough but finds winning quite tough, and both victories have come on soft ground. Would have gone close last time but for bad error at the last. Richard Johnson keeps the faith.
Made chasing debut at Kelso (2m1f, good) last time on the back of a wind operation when shaping nicely. This step up in trip should suit and is a major player of the same mark here with improvement likely.
Showed useful form over hurdles when with Gordon Elliott but hasn't for the most part lived to that level over fences. Again well beaten at Warwick last time. Steps back up in trip but revival needed.
Fairly competitive in and around this mark over hurdles. Goes into quite an interesting heat for chasing debut and may find one or two of these a bit hot.
