Back to form when third at Newcastle last time but has never been the easiest to catch right and can's be certain to build on that.
Didn't totally convince over 2m7f at Bangor on latest but connections happy to have a go at a longer trip though does have to prove his stamina.
In consistent form until a below par effort on latest but this is a slightly weaker affair and no surprise should he bounce back.
Soft ground winner last May when trained by Dan Skelton. Didn't shape too badly when fourth on debut for this yard at Uttoxeter.
Off the mark over 2m6f last time having been beaten favourite on four previous runs. Stays this trip and should have more to come and 6lb rise doesn't looks harsh.
Back on song when landing a gamble at Newcastle when beating an in-form rival rival. Both wins have been at shorter so has to show he stays this far but obvious claims if he does.
Poor form all starts over hurdles at various trips and hard to fancy unless the market tells us different.
No form at huge odds in four runs over hurdles since joining this yard. Hopes rest on first time cheek pieces and step up in distance.
Hasn't won since Hexham September 2017 and did run well there two starts ago though plenty of tame efforts as well and percentage call is to look elsewhere.
Finished last term in decent nick but has shown nothing in two starts this season and not hard to look elsewhere.
Relatively lightly raced and there could be more to come at this trip. Could outrun her odds.
First piece of form when third at Hexham in December but immediately went backwards on subsequent run and another with plenty to prove.
Bit better when third from well out of the handicap at Uttoxeter on latest. Similar tale here from 9lb "wrong" but does have minor place claims.
