Was last seen in December when producing an improved effort over hurdles at Wincanton. Remains a maiden, and now goes chasing from a 3lb higher mark. Bred to do this and could go well.
Went close in a similar race for Harry Whittington at Taunton (2m2f, good) in April, when on this mark. Disappointing since, including on debut for this trainer in a hurdle last month. Looks best watched for the moment.
Not seen since March 2017 and returns for his chase debut needing improvement on what he produced over hurdles to figure. Precautionary market check prudent.
Ended last season with three very similar efforts when runner-up in three successive handicap chases at around this trip. Bit more needed on his reappearance, but could make each-way appeal.
Broke his duck over hurdles when last seen in May. Resumes for his chase debut from 7lb higher, but not sure the forecast soft ground is ideal for him.
10-race hurdling maiden who would have a squeak from this mark on some of his 2017 form. However, looks one to watch on his chase debut, with soft conditions apparently not ideal.
Sole win came over hurdles, when 7lb higher , in 2016. 0-12 over fences. Handles testing ground and has each-way claims from this mark.
Was second from this mark over hurdles at Plumpton (heavy) in April, but has otherwise been disappointing. Returns from wind surgery with plenty to prove. Interesting if supported.
