Off time: 15:01 | Winning time: 5m 14.9s
Certainly knows how to win and although a bit disappointing when third at Fontwell comes from a stable in good nick and should play a part.
Winner in France. Tailed off on British debut over hurdles and has to improve a lot in a short space of time to figure here.
Emphatically landed a gamble over C&D in November. Remained in good from prior to fall on latest. Generally runs his race which should be enough to go well again here.
Well below form when last seen in the spring but did win over C&D on first run last season so can obviously go well after a break and interesting to see how he goes in the market compared to stable companion Absolutely Dylan.
From a yard with a very good record in this particular race. Followed up Haydock win with creditable effort in better race so one to take very seriously.
Hasn't shown enough on his two runs back over fences after a break to be of major interest here.
Probably remains in good heart as he seemed to do too much too soon at Ayr last time and still young enough to take a step forward.
Doesn't make it to the track too often and despite running creditably on comeback, his losing run goes back to 2016.
In fantastic form last winter and although yet to win this season has shown on occasions that the ability is till there and a bold bid wouldn't surprise.
