Winner four times in the past but proved a disappointment in recent times and has had wind surgery since pulling up at Fontwell (2m3f, good) last month.
21 race maiden and disappointing in three starts over fences this season and it was a similar story when beaten 22L over hurdles at Stratford (good) recently. Others make more appeal.
Good fourth over this trip at Newton Abbot (good) earlier this month on her return from a break. Placed second in a novice hurdle over 2m7f at Worcester (good) subsequently and likely to run well once more.
Good 3L fifth over an extended 3m2f at Stratford (good-to-soft) in April and returning from a break when beaten 21L over the same trip at Newton Abbot (good) in July. Given another break since and drop in distance not certain to suit.
Winner of five races in a 34 race career but has finished well beaten in four starts since joining this yard. Handicap mark has plummeted as a result and jockey booking catches the eye off a career low mark.
Running well in defeat in recent starts including when third over this trip at Newton Abbot (good) earlier this month. Raised 3lb for that effort and is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Dual winner at Les Landes in 2m1f hurdle races on firm ground earlier this year but held on his first two starts since fort his yard. Better effort when beaten 11L over an extended 2m3f at Huntingdon (good) last time out however.
Returned to form with a third in an eight runner handicap hurdle over an extended 2m3f at Bangor (good) just over a week ago. Repeat of that effort should see him run well once more.
Victorious three times in the past including off a 13lb higher mark over fences at Exeter (2m3f, good-to-firm) in April 2017. Returning from a break following a heavy defeat at Ffos Las (3m, good) in May.
Decent fourth over this trip at Newton Abbot (good) on his return to hurdles at the start of last month. Interesting contender having won off higher marks in the past.
