Bumped into a lightly raced winner when second at Uttoxeter last month. Clear of remainder but 7lb higher now. Any rain will be a plus.
C&D win in November 2015 but lightly raced since and although this his easiest race for ages, would like to see more before supporting.
3m2f on soft ground stretched her stamina last time but more to come over fences and her second at Huntingdon behind a vastly improving type reads well in the context of this.
Hacked up by 18L over C&D last month. Not in the same form when third at Wetherby off this 8lb higher mark since but claims here if able to repeat that course win.
Chasing career has been blighted by mistakes to date and would need to see him put in a fluent round of jumping before supporting.
Only three finished when runner up at Sedgefield and probably ran better than final position indicates when failing to stay marathon trip at Wetherby subsequently. May have improvement to come but probably needs it,
Veteran who has struggled since Uttoxeter second in May. Does at least have the chance to run off his correct mark today and could outrun his big odds but others preferred.
