Followed up a chase win over 2m3f here last August with a decent third at Huntingdon (2m4f, good) in the autumn. Back over hurdles returning from a break on debut for a new yard.
Pleasing return from a break when finishing third at Hexham (2m, good) last month. Best form has come on ground softer than is forecast here.
Placed in a heavy ground novice hurdle in January. Held in two subsequent outings and wears a tongue tie for the first time on handicap and stable debut.
Yet to place in six racecourse appearances and wears a tongue tie for the first time having pulled up in first time blinkers (retained) last time out.
Winner of one claiming and one selling hurdle for Dan Skelton. Disappointing since joining this yard and others make more appeal.
Interesting Irish raider having won over 2m4f at Perth (good) last time out. Races off an 8lb higher mark here and is one for the shortlist once more.
Promising handicap debut when finishing 2L third at Worcester (2m7f, soft) in May. Pulled up on good ground subsequently and dropping in trip on this occasion.
Beaten 26L when finishing fourth over 2m7f on good ground here last time out. Likely more needed if he's to take this contest.
Ran well for a long way prior to finishing fourth over this trip at Southwell (good) on his return to action in May. Worth a check in the market.
Signs of ability in six runs over hurdles so far including when 22L fifth over 2m4f at Ffos Las (good) last time. Wears cheekpieces for the first time.
Unplaced on all eight starts so far and finished 60L last of 13 over 2m4f at Uttoxeter (good) last time. Others hold stronger claims.
Fair form over hurdles in the spring but pulled up back over fences over 3m on good-to-firm going here last time. Return to hurdles should suit with a visor tried for the first time.
Sole success came well over four years ago and looks likely to struggle racing from a stone out of the handicap.
