Won this race last year off an 11lb lower mark but has made solid improvement since that success winning twice in the spring. Should be spot on after a recent spin and likely to make a bold bid to win this race again.
Made steady progress last year before refusing to race on scheduled chasing debut at Uttoxeter in May. Returns from a six month absence here so fitness needs to be taken on trust and the hood is now applied.
Ex-French performer who won a novice event at Kempton in March before finding Grade 1 company a little hot at Aintree in the spring. Returns from a seven-month break and carries significant promise to do well this year.
Won at Wincanton in February before being well held in the Fred Winter at the Festival. Close-up third on final start last season at Ayr and resumes here off 3lb higher having had a seven-month break.
Ran a cracker in a Listed Mares contest at Wetherby 10 dasy ago when narrowly denied by Lady Buttons. A repeat of that effort would give her sound claims back in a handicap here.
Smart flat performer on his day who has also won over hurdles. First start in this sphere for almost a year but is fit from the flat and is impossible to dismiss given his ability in that sphere.
