His two wins have come off marks of 58 and 63 over shorter trips. Handles soft ground but well below his best on his last three starts.
Opened his account in similar company back in May with soft ground apparently the key. Only 3lb higher and has leading claims.
Dual Southwell winner who is yet to make the frame in 11 starts on turf. Mark is plunging but others make more appeal.
All three wins have come on AW tracks but his best turf performances have come with some cut in the ground. Nicely weighted with a good claimer on board, but he needs to break better than on his last two starts.
Dual-winning hurdler who handles a soft surface. Drops in trip wearing new headgear but, even allowing for the modest opposition, it is hard to see him having the pace to win this.
Won and placed last year but finished well held on soft ground on seasonal debut at Chepstow (1m2f) two months ago. Step back up in trip in her favour.
Huge disappointment last time on fast ground in first-time blinkers but better prior to that on easy going at Haydock. The way he folded last time is a concern as they did not go much of a gallop.
Lightly raced filly for leading yard and jockey has a 31% strike rate for them. Her two best efforts came on a soft surface and she is dropped in class.
Looked to be getting the hang of things last time when meeting trouble in running and staying on well. His half-brother handles heavy going so every chance he will handle these conditions and one for the shortlist.
Yet to make the frame in nine starts and still to convince he has the pace to win a race.
Beat the useful Jester Jet over hurdles in 2016 but she has a 1-21 record on the level and a two year absence makes her even less appealing.
Showed a bit more ability last time but appeared to be crying out for 2m. That said his dam and his most illustrious sibling, Master Carpenter, handled soft conditions well.
