Made a promising seasonal reappearance when finishing fourth at Perth (2m4f, good) earlier this month. Races off a mark 3lb higher than when winning at Market Rasen (good-to-soft) on his penultimate outing.
Good second over an extended 1m7f at Southwell (good) on his penultimate outing. Well held fourth subsequently and likely more needed if he's to take this contest.
Winner of a 6lb higher mark at Perth (3m, good-to-soft) last September. Below that form in two completions this term and wears a tongue tie for the first time.
Made the frame in four consecutive outings at the start of the year but fell subsequently and finished well beaten on his return from a break in a handicap hurdle in May. Back over fences in this contest.
Useful horse on his day but has proved a disappointment so far this spring. Handicap mark is falling as a result and races off a mark 6lb lower than for his latest chase success.
Chase winner in December 2016 but had just five starts since including two in point-to-points. Well in on his old form and back in handicap company having finished a poor fourth in a 2m7f hunter chase at Worcester (good-to-soft) in May.
Struggled in three starts since returning from a break. Handicap mark is falling as a result and market support would be interesting in this contest.
Winner of two of his last three starts most recently over 2m1f at Stratford (good) in May. Returning from a break here and interesting despite having to race off a 7lb higher mark.
In great form so far this season winning three of his four starts including in handicap chases over this trip at Hexham (good) the last twice. Bold show likely despite a 10lb rise in the weights.
Made a winning return from a long break when successful over an extended 2m4f at Bangor (good) in May. Not beaten far in two subsequent outings and an interesting runner once more.
