Finished runner-up in novice chases on his two most recent starts. Beaten 10L over an extended 2m6f at Kelso (good) last time out and is a notable runner on his return to handicaps.
Signs of promise in three maiden/novice hurdle starts but struggled on handicap debut in that sphere last time out. Dropping in trip on chase debut.
Good fifth in a handicap hurdle over an extended 1m7f at Musselburgh (good) four days ago. Market support would be notable on debut over fences.
14 race maiden finished runner-up three times over fences last season. Put a fall behind him when 14½L fifth over an extended 2m3f at Plumpton (soft) last time out and has placed off this mark in the past.
Maiden after seven starts recorded a career best effort when third over C&D on soft ground last time out. Interesting off a 3lb lower mark.
12 race maiden finished 13L fifth at Catterick (good-to-soft) last time out. More needed if she's to take this event.
Placed off a 5lb higher mark over hurdles at Uttoxeter (2m, good) last May. Struggled in two starts since returning from a break and making his debut over fences.
Point-to-point winner but 0/20 under Rules and pulled up over 2m4f on heavy ground at Hexham last month. Races from out of the handicap.
Maiden after 13 starts and probably best watched racing from out of the handicap having pulled up at Hexham (2m4f, heavy) last time out.
