Seven-time chase winner who has won at this trip. Disappointed in a better race than this at Perth last time but had been in good form prior to that. Goes particularly well for this rider and couldn't dismiss in an open race.
Previous C&D winner who has been in terrific form of late having won three on the bounce before another solid effort when second at Sedgefield last time. Same mark here but riders claim brings him right into the equation once more and hard to beat.
Has finally fallen below his last winning mark from April last year but all four starts so far this year have been disappointing. Needs a sharp upturn in form to get back to winning ways here.
Won over three miles at Ludlow in April off 7lb lower mark and seems best on decent ground so won't want any rain. Should be fitter for recent spin although it was worrying how quickly he stopped there. Top rider booked and could bounce back.
Not had very much racing at all in the last year but returned with a fair effort at Uttoxeter when getting tired late on last month. Should come on for that and is on a very fair mark.
Mainly kept to the point-to-point seen these days and hasn't raced over fences under rules since summer 2016. Starts out for a new yard today and not obvious winner material but market check advised.
Looks on the decline having not won now since October 2016. Tailed off when last seen at Towcester in May and returns from a six-month absence here having had a wind operation and cheekpieces applied. On a dangerous mark if fit and ready.
