Placed over fences at Fakenham (2m5f, soft) in March but struggled in three starts over hurdles since joining this yard. Others make more appeal.
Promising third at Carlisle (2m1f, soft) on his penultimate outing. Struggled on better ground at Cartmel subsequently however and is returning from a break on this occasion.
Good effort in finishing 4L third over C&D on good ground at the start of this month. Repeat of that effort should see him go well once more.
Dual winner on the AW but disappointing in four starts over hurdles including on handicap debut at Ffos Las (2m, good-to-firm) earlier this month. Remains open to improvement.
Flat winner for Ed Dunlop but held in five outings over hurdles so far including on soft ground in February. Returning from a break and better ground should see him in a better light.
Placed three times on the Flat since returning from a break. Beaten just 1L last time out and remains feasibly handicapped on his return to hurdling.
Lightly raced since completing a C&D double in autumn 2016. Well held last month on return from well over a year off and others hold stronger claims.
Ran well to finish fourth to an in form rival over C&D on good ground when making his seasonal debut recently. Races off a 1lb higher mark and is likely to run well once more.
held fifth when making a return to hurdles over C&D at the start of this month. More needed if he's to take this contest.
Placed in a selling handicap in March last year but pulled up in three maiden point-to-points earlier this year and others make more appeal on return to Rules racing.
Not beaten far when finishing sixth over C&D on good ground recently. Had pulled up at Huntingdon prior to that and likely more needed on this occasion.
Maiden after seven starts under Rules and well held on both starts in handicap company. Probably best watched on his return from a break.
Finished 4L fifth over C&D on good ground last month and was running his best race in two starts since prior to being brought down three out here last time. May surprise a few better fancied rivals.
