15:10 Lingfield Wed 5 December 2018
Fair third under today's rider at Wolverhampton in May over this trip and ran well enough when fourth at Windsor last time to suggest he should be thereabouts here despite the steadier of top weight.
Runner-up of this mark over 1m6f at Lingfield in September and not disgraced in two starts since. Top amateur rider gets the leg up so looks like connections mean business.
Won 2m4f handicap hurdle for Tony Martin in Ireland last year and makes British debut for new yard here. Ran OK when fourth at Dundalk AW two years ago so is no forlorn hope.
Only win from 24 starts came in 2m Plumpton handicap hurdle in January and ran well after a break when second in Lingfield handicap hurdle last time. Rider making debut under Rules.
Very well bred daughter of Sea The Stars but still a maiden. Close second over C&D last time and only raised 1lb, so with good rider on board enters calculations.
Veteran gelding who has won nine times, including twice over C&D. Hasn't been in the best of form of late but has been given a chance by the handicapper. Jockey yet to ride a winner on Flat but has been successful over jumps.
Low level but consistent hurdler who has won two of his last three over timber. Not so good and yet to score on the level so has something to find on known form.
Appears best at around 1m4f and won only start at close to that trip at Windsor last term. Stamina has to be taken on trust having been made favourite but finished well beaten on first try at 2m last time out.
Six wins across both codes but last success came over hurdles at Ludlow in April 2015. Has tumbled down the weights but still doesn't jump out as a likely winner.
Runner-up under today's rider over this trip at Doncaster penultimate start, and second again over hurdles last time. Returns from three-month break and may not be far away if ready to roll.
Still a maiden after seven starts but has improved for step up to this trip and been placed in each of her last three outings. Challenged early enough last time so more patient tactics may pay dividends.
Has finished in the frame on each of his last four starts, including over this trip at Chelmsford in October. Very one paced but has fair racing weight and jockey is capable.
Ex-Irish gelding witha poor 2-45 strike rate to date. Ran well at big odds last time though over this trip and likes to race prominently so should give supporters a respectable run for thier money.
Kept on into fifth over C&D last time and is 2lb lower now. May build on that and has place claims if able to build on that effort.
