Generally very disappointing since taking this a year ago off the same mark. Cheek pieces normally worn now dispensed with and no surprise should he bounce back as may get an uncontested lead, and this likely to have been the target for a while.
Creditable fourth on Hereford comeback and this represents a slight drop in grade. Should strip fitter and doesn't have many miles on the clock for one of his age.
Looked to benefit from a wind operation when giving an in-form rival a fright on Fakenham comeback. Never been the most consistent in the past so not certain to repeat that but if he does will be a major player.
Has shown nothing in two goes over fences this term and first time tongue tie will need to have a dramatic effect for him to figure.
Didn't run too badly on chasing debut last April but absence since a touch off putting and stamina to prove as well.
Reported to have never travelled when pulled up at Uttoxeter but a model of consistency prior to that and deserves another chance to put that run behind him. Second in this race a year ago.
Showed enough when third on chasing debut over C&D last month to suggest there could be more to come and the wind surgery he has had since may be to his benefit.
Lightly raced gelding who didn't show much over hurdles but was still prominent when falling four out on chase debut at Plumpton. The slow pace that day meant he was still prominent but capable of better and dangerous to dismiss out of hand.
Veteran who is a regular at this venue and creditable third on Boxing Day but even that effort leaves him with something to find today.
