Was smart last season in bumper company, on soft and heavy ground. Will take some stopping in this sphere, if matching that form over hurdles.
Won an Irish point-to-point at the third attempt in May and bought for £68,000 shortly after. In good hands for this rules debut and the market should be a decent guide to his chance.
Won an Irish point-to-point in March. Has since changed hands and makes debut for this trainer. Well related, but sole previous hurdles try wasn't the best, so needs improvement.
Ran well on debut when 8L second to a decent opponent in a Wetherby bumper in February. Bred to jump (from the family of Amberleigh House) and should be capable of a competitive hurdling debut.
Carlisle bumper winner in March (heavy), when he beat just three opponents. Needs to improve on that form now going hurdling.
Won an Irish point-to-point (soft) last time out, at the fifth attempt. Has a bit to build on there, but probably one to watch on his hurdles intro.
Well held at both Hereford and Chepstow earlier this year. Can only watch on his reappearance.
Made the frame in a couple of bumpers, including here. Well held on hurdles debut at Aintree last month. Could improve for that and given the race title, it would be no surprise if he made some sort of impact.
59-rated middle distance handicapper on the Flat, who was pulled up on his second hurdles start at Worcester when last seen in September. Can only watch.
Won a heavy ground Chepstow bumper in 2016, but off since April of that year. Plenty to prove on the face of it, on this hurdles debut, so the market should give us more clues.
Looked above average when winning on his sole run in an Irish point-to-point and cost £70,000 soon after. Nice enough pedigree, in good hands, and a good debut would not surprise.
Decent effort when third in his only Irish point-to-point (soft/heavy). Plenty of hurdles success in his pedigree, so can hopefully take to this, but may have to wait for other days.
Beat Acey Milan in a bumper last October, but unable to kick on from there. Respectable effort on hurdles debut at Chepstow in October. Hood now fitted, but needs improvement on that run to figure.
82-rated on the Flat, but well held on hurdles debut last month and needs much more than that to be involved here.
