On a hat-trick carrying a 7lb penalty for her all the way 14L mares handicap hurdle win at Fontwell (2m5f+) last week; claimer ridden today in order to ease the burden; solid stamina wise and should go close.
Improving; fast and fluent hurdler who struck up a good relationship with this rider last season (dual 3m Musselburgh scorer); off since February and reappears on quick ground (has won on good); likely to take on Vivant for the early lead.
Best suited by quick ground; ready winner of a Perth maiden (2m4f) in July, but clobbered by the assessor thereafter and appears increasingly vulnerable as a result; disappointing in a Worcester claimer latest.
Won just once in 19 starts; for Jonjo O'Neill at Market Rasen (2m4f+) in April 2017; well held when falling on his most recent outing at Cartmel, and unlikely to be strong enough here.
Thrives at this track during the spring (four-time winner; 2m-2m4f); 5lb higher than when decisively seeing off Elmono by 2¼L, but unseated his rider when last seen competitively 93-days ago; conditions appear perfect.
Modest in three starts for Donald McCain in 2018 (all over fences), and sold very cheaply last month for £800; back over hurdles (1-11) for the first time in 12 months.
Debut bumper winner in July 2017 (Stratford), but remains a maiden over hurdles after seven starts; not beaten too far over this trip at Ballinrobe (fifth) in May, and 3lb lower for his English handicap bow; market helpful.
Well-related gelding who got off the mark when upped marginally in trip (2m5f) at Sedgefield last month; 6lb higher, and in a stronger race, but worthy of respect with conditions likely to be riding on the quick side.

Vivant (13/8), Jack Lamb (11/4), Soleglad (5/1), Jump For Dough (7/1), Judge Earle (10/1), The Trigger (10/1), Desert Island Dusk (12/1), Little Stevie (50/1), Sigurd (66/1)
