Goes well here and has won at Grade 2 level over fences, but hard to see him being at his best back over hurdles at a trip this short.
Smart over both hurdles and fences, switching back to the former here after being pulled up in a Carlisle chase last time. Interesting, on ground that suits, and from a very competitive mark.
Won this race last year when 1lb higher. Well held both starts this autumn, but career record shows that he can put a poor run behind him and bounce back. Not ruled out.
6lb worse off with Aristo Du Plessis for a 6L beating by him in this last year. Has improved since, but like that reopposing rival, he is badly in need of a revival after his last two performances.
Loves to get his toe in, and this dual juvenile hurdle winner of last season enters handicaps on a feasible looking mark here. Could go well.
Has won around here, but most of his best form has been at around 2m4f and he will do well to win a competitive heat over this far from this high in the handicap.
Won on soft in France, though kept only to good ground both both Alan King and this trainer in the past 19-months. Best form would give her a chance, but last two starts leave plenty to be desired.
Dropped 6lb going into this handicap debut, and that looks a workable mark. Acts on deep ground. Interesting.
