Last win came at Newton Abbot in 2015 off a mark of 140. Was good third on penultimate start at Cheltenham over shorter trip and is now 2lb lower. Makes debut for new yard after runnng poorly last time at Wincanton.
Consistent gelding who hans't been out of the first three in his last four starts, including a win over 2m at Hexham in May. 4lb higher following two more solid runs, stays, and should be right in the thick of the action once again.
Landed Huntingdon 2m handicap hurdle in April before finishing last of six at Towcester on his latest outing where fast ground may have been the issue. Eased 2lb and not without a chance here.
Runner-up in heavy ground novice hurdle for Mark Bradstock in January before two poor efforts. Joined current yard in June and made wininng handicap debut at Market Rasen over this trip last week. Runs off same mark with champion jockey on board.
Won selling hurdles at Wetherby and Worcester this spring and not disgraced in slightly better race at Cartmel last time over further. Return to this trip may help but might find one or two too good here.
Scored over this trip five years ago in Ireland but mainly campaigned at 2m in recent seasons. Has had three runs since wind surgery, running well on one occasion, but hasn't done enough to suggest a win is just around the corner.
Veteran whose only win came in heavy ground at Catterick four years ago. Dropped 21lb in weights in last three otuings have been woefully out of form and is hard to recommend on that basis.
