Well below the form he showed when he was with the Haggas yard (won a handicap of 75) although he did show a little more last time in a race that didn't go his way at Chepstow. Still has something to prove though even at this level.
Maiden who has only shown modest form at best and produced a laboured effort when last seen at Newbury. Has to cope with a wide berth here also and not one to be treating as a solid proposition.
Turned in her best effort of the season last time in a similar event over C&D keeping on well off this mark to finish a creditable 2nd. Appears to be holding her form well at this level and every chance of going one better in this.
Reverts to the Flat having won over hurdles last time at Market Rasen with cheekpieces on for the first-time. If he can reproduce that sort of form here he looks as though he could be dangerous; yet to win on the Flat though.
Hardly the most consistent sort and has been badly out of form this season offering very little in three starts. Now drops in grade and back on her last winning mark but hard to trust overall.
Usually seen to good effect around here (three-time course winner; twice over C&D) and should be effective in this sphere. Dropped below his winning turf and AW marks and no surprise to see him make a bold bid.
Hard to glean much from her five runs so far and now steps up in trip and down in grade to see if there is some spark there. Might be hampered by a wide draw though and overall she's one that needs to show more even at this level.
Has on occasions suggested that he still might be able to win a race as he's thrown in on his old form but hasn't now won since 2016. Can't fall much further in the handicap but will need others to falter to win this.
Winner of this race back in 2014 her last win came back in 2015 and she returns now after a long absence. Likely to need the race and a watching brief is the best advice.
With a record of 0-15 he's of very little interest given his inconsistencies. Yet to prove he actually stays this far and nit hard to have reservations about his chance.
Has seven starts where she has started at 100/1 or more and yet to finish placed on the Flat (0-9). Even at this lowly level it's hard to see her winning.
