Has struggled in two starts over fences so far and was never really involved at any stage upped to class 3 at Cheltenham last time. Drops back in grade here and down another 4lb but needs to up his game with cheekpieces on first time.
Victorious over an extended 2m3f on good ground at Stratford in August off a 6lb lower mark and ran well again there last time over 2m5f when a well-held second. Looks like this sort of trip will suit and should run his race once more.
Bounced back to form with a win here over hurdles nine days ago. Hasn't matched his hurdles form over fences so far in four attempts and maybe vulnerable here back over the larger obstacles.
Should be about to reach peak fitness but has been well held on all recent starts over hurdles and remains a maiden after nine attempts. Makes chasing debut today and needs to improve for fences.
Only ever won once in 32 starts back in 2016. Has been struggling for form of late and is hard fancy despite the fact she has dropped to a very dangerous mark. Market check is needed and support would be significant.
