Enjoyed a really good 2015/16 campaign that yielded even chase wins at up to 3m5f for Paul Morgan. Not seen for almost two years. Returns on a feasible mark if ready on his stable debut. Market check.
Seems to go best at Uttoxeter, but was well below par there on his reappearance last month. Stable has been in good form of late, so he may well be capable of a revival with cheekpieces now on. Not ruled out.
Not seen in a chase under rules since 2015, having been prolific between the flags since then. More needed on his return to this sphere, but can't write him off.
Dual course winning-mare who is 2lb higher than her last success at Hereford in March. Well held on her recent return, though that trip was probably a bit short, so significantly better effort not ruled out.
Unable to win under rules so far, but has won 10 of his 19 point-to-points, so there is some ability within. May do better now switching to this trainer.
Scored over hurdles at Exeter in December and followed up in a Chepstow chase, when 4lb lower. However, handicapper looks to have had his measure since.
Sole chase win came at Chepstow in first-time blinkers almost two years ago. In and out since then and pulled up on return from a wind op last time. Bit to prove.
Placed in a hunter chase at Chepstow in April and drops 2lb for this return to rules racing for a different trainer. Tongue tie added. Can't write him off, but others make stronger cases.
Won this last year when fresh, from 1lb higher and scored from 9lb higher back here (2m4f, heavy) two starts later. Form then tailed off. Needs to bounce back, but another who is far from written off.
