Decent Flat handicapper who made a winning hurdles debut at Fontwell in August. Showed a gutsy attitude that day but questions to answer under a penalty and following a layoff.
Got bogged down in heavy ground last time but shaped better at Newbury on hurdling debut. Looked smart when landing a bumper here and could prove hard to beat.
Out of his depth last time but shaped much better here on his penultimate start. Doubts over the value of the form were dispelled when the winner went close next time and he has to enter calculations.
Third at big odds here on penultimate start and limitations exposed next time. In a hot race and likely to be found wanting.
Fairly useful sort on the Flat (mostly seen on the AW) and won four races at up to 1m4f in 2018. Soon in trouble on hurdling debut and, although the quicker ground should help, he looks a long shot in this company.
Tailed off on both hurdling starts and rightly arrives as the stable second string. Faces a very tough task.
Had modest point-to-point form in Ireland and her debut here a month ago offered little to suggest she can win at this level.
Well beaten in three AW races for Richard Hannon. Makes hurdling debut after being sidelined for almost a year.
Offered little on hurdling debut having shown faint promise in two bumpers. Hard to fancy at this level of competition.
