12:50 Southwell Tue 11 December 2018
Four-time C&D winner including a success here last month. Live player here dropped in to claiming company, despite having to concede weight to all.
Just one win from 12 starts to date but ran well here over 1m a couple of starts back. While he didn't back that up at Kempton last time, he may do better dropped into this class.
Won a maiden at Doncaster back in 2017. Missed 2017 but slowly working his way back to form since and posted a respectable effort here last time. Needs to build on that now with the addition of first-time cheekpieces.
Just one win from eight starts, well beaten when last seen at Chelmsford. Slowly away that day and wouldn't want to do that here but capable in a race off this nature.
Still a maiden after nine starts but went close twice here earlier in the year before shaping as if amiss last time at Wolverhampton. Likely worth forgiving that effort and first-time blinkers could eke out improvement.
Just one win from 26 career starts and that came in 2016. Well beaten on course debut last time out and others preferred.
C&D winner back in April but has been below that form in two subsequent course starts and failed to beat a rival in a 12 runner affair at Newcastle last time. Others preferred.
Placed on his sole start here in maiden company and he returned to form with a good second at Newcastle last time. Interesting contender getting weight from several rivals.
Five-time course winner (four over this trip) and while his losing run stretches back a little, he shaped like a return to form wasn't too far away last time. Has a tough ask at these weights though.
