Well beaten in this race last year but went on to win the Cross Country race at the Festival before landing the Aintree Grand National. Entitled to need this run on his return, though not ruled out given his record here.
Won over C&D in December last year and bounced back to form with an excellent third in the Aintree Grand National two starts ago. He was below par 12 days later at Punchestown but well worth forgiving that and not ruled out if ready to go on return.
Two-time C&D winner and finished sixth at the Festival behind Tiger Roll. Recent hurdles reappearance most likely a prep for this in receipt of plenty of weight from his main rivals.
Interesting recruit to this field and bolted up at Fakenham last time out. Has stamina to prove over this trip and faces some course specialists so perhaps best watched this time.
Well beaten on all recent starts and struggling for any sort of form present. Hard to fancy on his first start in this sphere.
Has been in fair form since joining this yard but losing run stretches back to 2015 and his jumping isn't always the best, as seen two starts back at Tramore.
Fell at Sedgefield last time out but had been in fair form prior to that. Stamina still unproven for this trip and hard to fancy here. Wears first-time cheekpieces.
