Stays well and family includes a chase winner. Makes debut over bigger obstacles after wind surgery since disappointing twice over hurdles in January. Certainly a feasible contender, if fully fit first time.
Sole hurdles win came from 1lb lower, so has the ability to get involved, but will need to do better than on both chase starts so far.
5lb higher than when winning a decent Chepstow handicap hurdle in January (2m7½f, soft), though held in very competitive events since. Dam won over fences, and he is interesting on his debut after a break.
Trounced a big field in a Hereford novices' hurdle (soft) when last seen in March. Half-brother to two good chasers and is very interesting now switching to the bigger obstacles. Goes well fresh.
Last season's Grade 1 Albert Bartlett winner (3m, soft) at the Cheltenham Festival. Went close in the Punchestown equivalent when last seen in April. Plenty of ability and will be well prepped for this chase debut. Should go well.
Decent novice hurdler last season, and went close in the Grade 1 Challow Hurdle in December. Pulled up behind Kilbricken Storm at Cheltenham when last seen. Has a fair bit to find with him, but that is not to say he can't make a good debut.
Won the 3m handicap hurdle on today's card last year (soft) from a mark of 130 and ran respectably up in grade from marks in the 140s after that. Beaten 17L on chase debut here (2m5f) last month. Improvement needed, but can't rule that out.
Won back-to-back novices' hurdles last season on testing ground and was then a 9L third in a Doncaster Grade 2 (3m½f, soft) in January. Open to further progress over fences and a competitive debut wouldn't surprise.
Dual handicap hurdle winner last autumn. Well held when upped in grade in April. Chasing looks more likely to be his game, however, and although he will need improvement, he is another interesting runner.
