Now 12-years-old but showing good form since joining this yard, ending run of runner-up finishes with C&D win in July. Gone up 7lb but another assured run looks likely.

Three-times hurdles winner last summer, latest off 9lb lower mark than here, pulled up on chase bow at Uttoxeter in July on good ground over 3m on seasonal bow. Second start after wind operation here.

Seemed to appreciate the return to fences when a winner at Warwick (3m5f, good to soft) in April, although it was hard work. Just two runs since, plugging on four fourth at Newton Abbot a week ago, needs more.

Not the most reliable sort in the past but did manage to build on a pair of runner up efforts when winning a C&D handicap in July. Tame efforts in both starts since from increased rating.

Improving over fences, latest when stepped up to this sort of trip for the first time at Stratford earlier in the month, finishing second. Should go well again here and on the shortlist.

Not much to get excited about in three-race hurdles career and beaten almost 30L in a novices' handicap chase over C&D last month on switch to this discipline. Plenty more required.

Has tumbled in the weights in past year, and showed she was no back number when reappearing at Market Rasen (3m, good) last month in fourth spot. Got outpaced when fourth at Fontwell since, step back up in distance looks a positive.

Hurdles winner here over the trip. Best effort in six over fences arrived last time at Newton Abbot over 2m5f (good) but will have to show that can be repeated and more to lift this prize.

Point-to-point winner who has won over hurdles an appeared to be a little more like his old self of late although the yard remain in a below-par state at the moment. Well above his last winning mark but may be able to make an impression.

Had a rather chequered career having shown some useful form over hurdles/fences when with David Pipe. Lightly-raced since but still looks to have some ability based on his three starts for this yard; goes up in trip.

Without a win since January 2015 when with Jamie Snowden. Tends to make mistakes and run in snatches. Runner-up at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good) last month but pulled up back there since, questions to answer.

Good late run on the inner to score at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good) last week. That was a conditionals contest so gets to run from the same mark now, though this looks a tougher ask.

Couple of poor runs this season, including over C&D in July, leaves plenty to be desired for now. Has had wind surgery since that most recent start.

Summed up by his overall profile which is very uneven with the few high spots usually followed by a low one. Maiden after 24 starts, did finish second over C&D last time out.

Maiden, well beat over 2m½f here in July on second chase start, has stamina question to answer now, and improvement to find.

Betting

Forecast

Bermeo (4/1), Cruising Bye (7/1), Dawnieriver (8/1), Torhousemuir (9/1), Wells Gold (9/1), Gnarly (10/1), Withoutdefavourite (12/1), Alanjou (14/1), Howlongisafoot (16/1), Mister Mister (16/1), Vif Argent (16/1), Phangio (20/1), Shanksforamillion (22/1), Culm Counsellor (33/1), Western Dream (100/1)

Verdict

BERMEO got off the mark over fences at the fourth time of asking last week at Newton Abbot over a longer trip. That win came in a conditionals' event, ensuring he runs off the same mark here and earns the nod to double his tally. Cruising Bye is the old boy in the pack but not discounted having scored over C&D in July while Torhousemuir and Withoutdefavourite complete the shortlist.
