Unexposed at this trip and bounced back to best when winning over 3m at Ludlow last time. 7lb rise is fair as the first two pulled clear and has to be respected on that form.
Visor now replaces the cheek pieces tried last time but struggling to make much impact and others preferred despite dropping handicap mark.
In good form at shorter last season for Christian Williams. Struggling since switch in yards and hasn't convinced at two previous tries at this trip, though well treated now if back to best.
Absent since June 2017 and first run over the smaller obstacles since 2014. First run for current yard and not hard to pass over.
Looked a chaser going places early last year but has lost the plot back hurdling and impossible to fancy on what we've seen of late. First time blinkers would need to have dramatic effect.
Tailed off when last seen at Kempton in November and has to prove he definitely stays this far. Well weighted if able to recapture best form but comes with risks.
Handicapped on three moderate runs at shorter but very likely there is better to come stepping up in trip as a full-brother to high class chaser Monalee. One to note in market in such an ordinary contest.
Showed vastly improved form when stepping up to this trip at Wetherby last time. Now she has found her right distance there could be more to come and not readily dismissed.
Poor form under rules and Point-to-points and impossible to make a case for.
Fetched £68,000 after winning a Point-to-point but yet to fire over hurdles for current yard and no better when sent handicapping last time. Should do better in time but something to prove for now.
