Returning from a long spell on the sidelines when well beaten at Uttoxeter last month. Hard to fancy until showing significantly more.
Landed a maiden hurdle at Market Rasen in September, but was out of her depth when last seen in Grade 2 company at Sandown in February. Returns from a break after undergoing wind surgery and is fitted with a tongue tie. Interesting.
Made all when winning a Doncaster novices' hurdle in December, but was tailed off when last sighted at Uttoxeter in May. Has undergone wind surgery and is worth noting in the betting.
Good efforts on last two starts, but the handicapper is standing his ground and in-form yard now resorts to first-time cheekpieces. Needs to improve for them off this rating.
Three chase wins in a row last season, but has not won over hurdles since 2014. Not badly handicapped, though, and could figure if on a going day.
Ran well when returned to the Flat at Windsor last month. Big prices and failed to complete on two previous runs over hurdles, so has a bit to prove on this switch back to timber.
Poor runs on last two starts at this venue and Stratford. Stable jockey prefers the claims of Starcrossed and it's not hard to see why.
Won over C&D in July, last year, and two runs this time round have been perfectly acceptable. Up 5lb, though, which tempers enthusiasm.
Unplaced in four starts over timber, three of them in Ireland. Positive jockey booking, but hard to see where the necessary improvement is going to come from.
Veteran who ran with credit at Newton Abbot last time. Not out of this, but it will be surprising if one or two younger rivals do not have his measure.
