Gained due reward for some close calls in previous starts when scrambling home over this trip at Uttoxeter last time out. Has to give away weight all round but should still give another good account of himself in first time cheekpieces.
Won Tralee maiden point-to-point in Ireland six weeks ago and makes Rules debut for new connections. Related to a number of winners so is respected and market should indicate how well he's expected to go here.
8-24 over fences and reverts to hurdles for only the second time in his career having run poorly last three starts. Connections seeking a confidence boost and if ability remains he could be a danger.
Experienced wining point-to-pointer makes belated debut under Rules in Britain. Scored twice between the flags in May before running poorly last time. More needed but not without hope.
Delegator gelding, half-brother to six indivudal winners. Represents top yard with 21% course strike rate over the years. Has shown promise in both starts so far without looking a worldbeater but should be thereabouts and is open to improvement.
