One of the more experienced chasers in the lineup. Looks fairly treated following his two victories in the spring. Goes well here and he has gone well when fresh.
Debatable whether he would have won last time if his main rival had remained upright. Now 4-6 for these connections and facing a more serious task.
Has always looked a staying chaser and embarks on his new career from a workable mark. Exciting prospect for his small yard and warrants a market check to gauge fitness.
Dual winning point-to-pointer although he did fall three times. Made a bright start to his rules career when winning three of his first four starts but somewhat disappointing when more highly tried. Stable 4-8 in past two weeks.
Still yet to win a race but has finished second on several occasions including his chasing debut six months ago when he jumped well. Had no chance at the weights with the winner that day, but interesting here meeting rivals on equal terms.
Recorded a quick time when opening his chasing account at Worcester. That form has not been working out and he looks vulnerable off this mark.
Handles some cut but conditions were too soft on last couple of starts. Has undoubted potential but would make more appeal if yard had shown signs of being in better form. Stable took this last year.
Won both his races over hurdles when ridden positively. Has had nothing to offer on last two starts when headed so this drop in trip may be what he needs. Has fitness on his side, but vulnerable to anything with a turn of foot.
Wide margin winner at Wincanton on heavy ground in January but failed to reproduce that subsequently. He can be a bit keen and that not ideal on chasing bow after a break.
3-5 over hurdles but showed little promise when sent chasing. Returns form a two year absence and plunged into a hot looking contest.
French import who showed some ability but failed to score in nine outings on the other side of the Channel. Makes British debut for new trainer and any market support would certainly be worth noting.
Couple of easy hurdle wins at Haydock and Wetherby in December on testing ground over this sort of trip prompted handicapper to take control. The way he stopped last time suggested something amiss and wind surgery would confirm that.
