Last of four on debut at Fontwell and beaten a long way when fourth of 10 at Worcester. Looks vulnerable against a few of these rivals.
Denham Red half-brother to the winner of a bumper and hurdle. Shrewd stable can ready one for its debut, so this one is worth noting in the betting.
Stepped up on Southwell debut when finishing a good second of eight at Fakenham recently. Going the right way and enters calculations.
Third in a point-to-point in May, he makes his debut for a stable which does well in this sphere and won this contest last year. One to note in the betting.
Son of Jeremy who fetched £80,000 at the Cheltenham sales in April after finishing second in a Ballinrobe bumper. First outing for a stable which does well in the discipline and has to go on the short list.
Irish point-to-point winner in May and makes his debut for this stable. Interesting if the market speaks in his favour.
Cut little ice in two point-to-points, but is from a winning family and may do better in time. Best watched on this debut under rules, however.
Stowaway gelding who was bought for €32,000 as a yearling and is a half-brother to a couple of winners over hurdles and fences. Well beaten in a valuable Newbury bumper in March, 2017. Off the track since and may need this outing.
Fair Mix gelding who is a half-brother to a 1m4f AW scorer and has jumps winners in his pedigree. Represents a top team and needs to be noted for market support.
Shaped well when fourth of 15 on debut at Ascot, but found the competition too tough at that track when moving into Listed company. Back in calmer waters after a break and is a leading contender on that first run.
Son of Fame and Glory who won his only point-to-point in Ireland. His new stable is going quite well and more than capable of getting one ready to win first time up.
