Latest run at Hereford easily excused as badly hampered by a loose horse. Earlier chase debut reads well when third behind a pair of decent subsequent winners and can do better in this sphere.
A pair of novice hurdle wins at this trip in the mud last season but didn't cut much ice on chase debut and a bit to prove in this company.
Decent novice two seasons back but has obviously had problems as not seen for over a year. Well treated if ready to roll and market should prove revealing.
Ran as well as could be expected in valuable Cheltenham chase last month and back on last winning mark. Mud lover who should have conditions to suit.
Rattled off a hat-trick in soft ground over hurdles at this time last year. Shaped well enough on chase debut and should have improvement to come over the larger obstacles.
Won a pair of small field contests last winter but finished season on a low and was pulled up on comeback run so something to prove at present.
Two wins over fences last season and returned at Newbury last month with a career best when jumping well to win in similar grade. 6lb rise is fair and sure to play a part.
Consistent over hurdles last season and plenty to like about his Sandown chase debut last month. Looks sure to improve in this sphere and forecast rain is a plus.
Never hit top form last season and didn't show enough on comeback run to be of interest in this strong contest.
Revelled in soft ground when scoring twice over hurdles at this venue last season and ran as well as could be expected on chase debut. More to come and will know more this time.
Got off the mark over 2m on recent chase debut at Chepstow. Stamina to prove over the extra 3f here but seemingly the pick of the stable jockey over Show On The Road.
The only four-year-old in the race and although recent Plumpton second needs improving on, his best run last season was in bad ground so with the forecast rain should be at home in the likely conditions.
