Dual chase winner on softer ground than this (acts on good). Back on his last winning mark, but yet to convince he stays quite this far. Interesting if he does after a better effort last time.
0-12 and has not run since with Henry De Bromhead in October 2017, over hurdles. Chase form not as good as over hurdles, so fair bit to prove on stable debut.
Career-best when 1L second at Market Rasen (3m) last time, when front pair were clear. Up 4lb, but has claims if first-time cheekpieces have a positive effect.
On a handy mark again, but has been out of sorts in four starts this winter and was well held behind Robin Deuz Pois two starts ago. Best watched.
Nine-race maiden under rules and 1-19 in point-to-points. Beaten a long way back under rules last time and can be taken on.
Inconsistent performer, but if he could return to the form of his Doncaster second (3m2f) in December, he would have claims. Has to put two poor subsequent runs behind him.
Has run well in defeat several times this season, but with a record of 0-27, although he could pick up some prize money again, he is clearly vulnerable for win purposes.
C&D winner who is on a losing run of 17. Has claims based on a couple of pieces of form this season, but can't be confident he will come up with that.
Well held in all three starts since a career-best here last month, which came over 2m. Blinkers now tried, but hard to fancy for the win.
1-25 over fences, and both career wins have been on heavy. Better effort last time, but much more needed from 3lb out of the handicap.
