Returned from a break with a 2L victory in a 2m handicap hurdle at Lingfield (good-to-soft) last time out. Raised 7lb for that success and is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Successful at Wetherby (2m, good) in November and ran a respectable race when finishing a close fifth over the same trip at Ayr (good-to-soft) last time out. Interesting contender once more.
Finished third on his last three starts including when beaten 1¾L in a 2m handicap hurdle at Huntingdon (good-to-soft) in December. Given a break since and worth a check in the market on this occasion.
Improving with racing this campaign and registered a fourth success in all when taking a handicap hurdle over an extended 1m7f at Wincanton (good) a month ago. Leading contender despite an 8lb rise in the weights.
Winner of two hurdles and a chance in France including a chase over an extended 2m1f at Dieppe (good-to-soft) last July. Worth a check in the market on stable debut having been gelded since his last start.
Made a winning debut for this yard when taking a 2m novice hurdle at Hereford (good) in November. Well beaten in two handicaps since however and others hold stronger claims.
Handicap mark is falling following some defeats in recent starts including when 20L fifth of eight at Kempton (2m, good) in a handicap hurdle last month. Races off a mark 1lb higher than for his most recent success.
Bumper winner on good ground at Tramore last October and narrowly beaten when runner-up on stable debut in a novice hurdle at Ludlow (2m, good) a month ago. Interesting contender on handicap debut.
Completed a double when following up a handicap debut victory with success in a 2m handicap hurdle at Kempton (good) in November. Returning from a break here and attempting to defy an 8lb rise in the weights.
Unbeaten in two starts since joining this yard with his latest success coming in a four runner handicap hurdle over an extended 2m3f at Catterick (good) last month. Likely to run well in this contest.
Well beaten 29L sixth over an extended 1m7f at Haydock (good-to-soft) last month on first start since wind surgery. More needed if he is to register a third course success.
