Likes it round here and was a winner over fences on his last visit. 3lb higher back over hurdles here after a disappointing effort at Southwell (over fences) last month and will need to put his best foot forward here.
Won a maiden hurdle at Newton Abbott when last seen back in August 2013. Almost five years off the track would suggest there have been plenty of issues and impossible to recommend unless market screams his name.
Solid efforts the last twice and ran well when third of 11 at Uttoxeter (2m, good) last time. Goes back up in trip here and has been nudged up 4lbs for not winning but that is solid form in the context of this race and a player for sure.
Winner of one claiming and one selling hurdle for Dan Skelton. Disappointing since joining this yard and others make more appeal.
Hard to get excited about what he has been showing over the last two years. Seems on the downgrade but mark is in free fall and he has conditions to suit so a bounce back to form not impossible.
Not shown a great deal under rules so far and well beaten when sent off a short priced favourite for a three runner point-to-point when last seen in May. Would need to do much more to be involved.
Veteran now who is well handicapped on some of his old form but hasn't been seen on the track for almost two years so fitness needs to be taken on trust and probably best watched.
Has been badly out of sorts under both codes for a while now. Never involved on recent return to action at Stratford and hood is now reached for. Easily passed over.
Really looks on the downgrade now having been beaten a minimum of 66L on all of his last six starts. Mark in free fall but impossible to recommend at this stage.
Winner off this mark back in January and should really have got much closer to winning at Fakenham last month when sent off a well backed favourite. This is a weak race and she has sound claims once again.
Capable at this level on a going day but they are few and far between now. Goes well for this rider but not one for maximum faith.
Eleven race maiden and well beaten on final three outings for Charlie Longsdon this spring. Pulled up on debut for this yard last time and best watched for now.
Been beaten quite a long way on all recent starts and hard to envisage a rapid return to form in this. Others preferred once again.
No wins from 23 starts and ran no race whatsoever back on the flat at Wolverhampton latest. Impossible to make any kind of case for here at the moment.
Pulled up at Towcester when last seen under rules back in October. Had some heavy defeats in point-to-points of late and very little to recommend him here.
