Former Olly Murphy inmate who has shown nothing in two runs for this trainer. Won a chase from 2lb higher in January, but can only watch on recent form.
2lb lower than her last win, but that was way back in 2015. Well held from this mark over C&D last time and plenty to prove.
Failed to get competitive in eight starts in Ireland. Changed hands since her last run, but looks best watched on her British debut.
Both wins have been on soft ground, the more recent being in February 2016. 7lb lower than when making the frame at Market Rasen in March. Not seen since June, but has a squeak if he can stage a revival.
Unable to win in either code since dotting up in a Cartmel maiden hurdle in 2016 (2m1f, good). Each-way claims if he can get back to the level of his August run at this venue.
Without a win for six years. Has scored on good, but best form shown on slower. 3lb lower than when last seen over hurdles in March and now makes debut for this trainer. Support for him would be interesting.
Stayed on well for second here over 2m1f (good) last time. Longer trip could help with some improvement and from the same mark she has claims.
0-11 so far, but took a step back in the right direction at Uttoxeter last time (2m4f, good to soft). Cheekpieces retained, races from the same mark, and with stable in form he might have a squeak.
1-47 over hurdles. Clearly very difficult to catch right, but couldn't rule him out of the frame back to his level of form from two starts ago.
0-22 over hurdles and has fallen on his last two starts. 7lb 'wrong' and impossible to recommend him.
0-26 over hurdles, 7lb 'wrong' and has failed to complete on her last two starts. Others preferred.
