Has won here over hurdles under this rider but recent performances, since leaving Henry Oliver, have been highly underwhelming.
Has a history of breathing issues so form can be in and out. Impressive Hereford winner last term who was placed over C&D. Stable had a welcome winner last week so hard to rule out back from a break.
Landed a gamble when scoring at Cartmel during the summer but poor on both outings since. Hard to gauge but a market move would make things clearer.
Failed to reproduce his 2017 this summer despite wind surgery and continues to run as though there is a problem.
A change of yards has seen no upturn in this moderate sort's fortunes and he remains impossible to recommend.
Without a win since January 2015 when with Jamie Snowden. Tends to make mistakes and run in snatches. May want a stiffer test.
Hit a purple patch in June when benefitting from a tongue-tie. Latest runs have not been explained and hard to fancy on the back of those performances.
Better on last couple of starts at Worcester. Nevertheless, he remains without a win in 25 starts and that makes him risky.
19-race maiden who will be better for last week's run. Placed on all three starts here so one for forecast/tricast perms.
Point-to-point winner with claims on his hurdling form of 2017. Soon in trouble on return from a lengthy break and hard to recommend until promising more.
Both chase wins have come at Huntingdon, the latest in January 2017. Stable have gone a year without a winner and his latest run did not promise an imminent change in fortunes.
Third here on stable debut when once again made to look one paced. Stable have done well with this type and took this contest in 2014, but his profile remains unappealing.
Poor hurdler who carried that form into point-to-points. Two runs over regulation fences this autumn have been no better.
