Placed four times since winning a claiming hurdle at Leicester (heavy) in January. Handles all ground and stays well having finished third over 3m2f at Newton Abbot (good) last time out.
Well held on both starts over fences since returning to action this spring. Beaten 24L over 3m2f at Fontwell (good) last time out and drop in trip should suit.
Justified favouritism when making a winning debut for this stable at Newton Abbot (good) over an extended 2m2f on Saturday. Tongue tie worn for the first time that day is retained and a leading contender under a penalty upped in trip.
Placed twice from four starts this term including when third at Ffos Las (3m, good) on his penultimate start. Drop in trip in his favour following a 16½L defeat over 3m2f subsequently.
Placed in a hunter chase at Worcester (2m7f, good-to-soft) in May. Well held in two subsequent starts including on handicap and stable debut over 3m2f last time.
12 race maiden and beaten 12½L when finishing fourth over 3m2f at Newton Abbot (good) last month. Others hold stronger claims.
Maiden after nine starts but had just three outings since joining this yard. Beaten 8L into second at Warwick (2m4f, good-to-soft) on his penultimate outing and interesting to see how he fares upped in trip.
Wore blinkers (retained) for the first time when finishing 1L second to the in form Lotus Pond at Southwell (good) last month. Winner has won since and is one to note in this contest.
Beaten 25L when third of nine at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good) in May. Held twice since and wore blinkers for the first time when beaten 41L over the same C&D last time.
Nine race maiden and pulled up in handicap hurdles the last twice. Probably best watched with a visor applied for the first time.
Placed on her last two starts over hurdles and made a pleasing debut over fences when 13L fifth over 3m2f at Newton Abbot (good) last month. Drop in trip should suit. with cheepieces applied for the first time.
Placed in a point-to-point in June 2016 but shown little under Rules so far including when beaten 62L at Worcester (2m7f, good) recently. Tongue tied for the first time and races from out of the handicap.
