Point-to-point winner and placed in a couple of good-to-soft ground contests so far. Most recent came over an extended 2m at Newbury on hurdling debut and he looks likely to run well once more.
Good effort when 11L fourth in a valuable soft ground bumper at Newbury in March. Decent third on hurdling debut at Fontwell (2m3f, good-to-soft) in October and a fair effort despite finishing last of seven later that month.
Winner over 1m2f on heavy ground on the Flat in September last year. Well beaten on hurdling debut in May and wears a hood for the first time.
Ran well to finish runner-up in a bumper over an extended 2m at Bangor (good-to-soft) on debut in the spring. One to note on debut over hurdles.
Well beaten in a couple of novice hurdles around this time last year and similar results on the Flat subsequently. Probably best watched at present.
Dual Flat winner unseated rider on hurdling debut in October. Better effort when fifth in a 2m maiden contest at Huntingdon (good) last month and interesting if backing that up.
Signs of ability in two starts so far including on last months hurdling debut. Likely more needed in this contest however.
Placed in a bumper at Kempton (soft) in March and has run well in defeat in two subsequent outings. Beaten 18L in a 2m maiden hurdle at Sandown (heaven) on hurdling debut last month.
Bumper winner on soft going at Ludlow in March. Stepped up on hurdling debut when finishing runner-up at Hereford (2m, good) last time out and another bold show likely with a hood tried for the first time.
Pulled up in a couple of juvenile hurdles at Cagnes-Sur-Mer last December. Absent since and probably best watched on stable debut.
Placed in a couple of point-to-points last season but has finished well held in two novice hurdles this autumn and others hold stronger claims.
Maiden after seven starts and has to put a fall over this C&D last time out behind her if she's to take this event.
Placed in a point-to-point in April and ran well in a bumper in September. Fair seventh on debut over jumps and for this yard at Ludlow (2m, good) last month but improvement needed to figure in this contest.
