Just 2lb higher than when scoring at Wetherby (2m, heavy) in March for Warren Greatrex, and has won on the Flat over this trip since. Not the most consistent, but ran flat last time, so no surprise if he bounces back.
4lb lower than when making the frame at Sandown last December, but off the boil in two further outings last season. Had a recent run on the Flat, so could be player if straighter for that.
Ended last season over fences and in decent form, despite not winning. Returns in this sphere, where his mark is 6lb lower. Handles cut and can't be ruled out.
Was going the right way when last seen at Plumpton in the spring. Now goes handicapping after a break from a feasible mark. No surprise to see him get involved.
Was busy in both codes earlier in the year. Returns from a break here. Has won on soft and is capable of being very competitive from this mark.
Hasn't been able to get competitive in handicaps over hurdles so far and a 3lb drop going into this looks insufficient to change that dramatically.
Won a selling handicap hurdle at Catterick last December (good to soft), when 19lb lower. Matched that effort in a Huntingdon claimer last time. Significantly more needed from this mark back in a handicap.
