15:40 Market Rasen Thu 8 November 2018
Finished fifth on his last three starts but beaten 38L over an extended 1m7f at Southwell (good) last time out. More needed in this contest.
Victorious in a 2m handicap at Worcester (good) at the end of September. Fair effort of his revised mark subsequently and he is an interesting runner on this occasion.
Three time hurdle winner and ran well when beaten 10L into sixth over this C&D in August. Vulnerable to younger rivals following a break.
Placed on soft ground at Sedgefield (2m1f) in February. Had wind surgery subsequently and interesting to see how he fares on his first start since June.
Decent fourth over 2m at Huntingdon (good) on his penultimate start. Unseated rider subsequently and worth a check in the market.
Returning from a break when finishing fourth in a maiden hurdle over an extended 2m on good ground here last time out. One to note upped in distance on handicap debut.
Placed in a good-to-soft ground maiden hurdle over 2m at Worcester in August. Well beaten last time out however and market support would be notable on handicap debut.
Dual hurdles winner but finished well beaten at Bangor (good) in August when last in action in this sphere. Had wind surgery since latest start and debuts for a new yard.
Placed twice over hurdles in the spring but struggled on handicap debut at Uttoxeter (2m, good) in September. Represents a top yard and not written off just yet.
Placed over this trip on soft going at Exeter 12 months ago. Pulled up on two of his three subsequent starts and probably best watched on seasonal debut.
11 race maiden beaten 23L into sixth over an extended 2m4f on good ground here in May. Others make more appeal on his return from a break.
14 race maiden finished well held over this distance on good ground at Stratford last time. Others make more appeal.
Showed little in a point-to-point and three novice hurdles prior to pulling up on handicap debut last time out. Probably best watched at present.
Selling race winner on the Flat and placed twice over hurdles so far. Fair fifth last time out and wears a tongue tie for the first time receive weight from all of his rivals.
