Beaten 12L when finishing fourth in a 2m heavy ground handicap hurdle at Ffos Las last time. Handles good ground and good-to-firm going also and is interesting in this contest.
Held in three starts over jumps since wind surgery and finished held in a 1m4f AW handicap at Wolverhampton last week. Probably best watched at present.
Ran well to finish third in a 2m handicap hurdle on heavy ground at Ffos Las in February. Disappointed favourite in a first time tongue tie (absent here) when last in action two in April.
12 race maiden finished a fair fifth over an extended 2m at Market Rasen (good) a fortnight ago. Likely more needed if he's to break his maiden in this event.
Disappointed in two hurdles and two chases since joining this stable. Handicap mark falling as a result but probably best watched at present.
Sole success came in a 1m4f Chepstow handicap (good) in August last year. Beaten 78L at Uttoxeter (2m, good) last month and wears cheekpieces for the first time.
Placed second beaten 1L in a handicap hurdle over an extended 2m2f at Market Rasen (good) in August. Disappointing since and races off a 5lb lower mark in this race.
