Game winner at Leicester last month when getting up close home to win by a nose on Good to firm. Different conditions today and has to carry a penalty in a stronger race.
Distant second at Taunton last time and although the step up from the minimum distance is in favour, this requires more.
Front runner who was well behind Asangy at Leicester and although claims on his second here last June, that was at a shorter trip and 2m4f may stretch him again.
One Point-to-point victory in 32 attempts throughout his career. Well beaten again last week and hard to make a case for.
Fair form in Point-to-points in his his younger days. Was rather headstrong under rules and this trip is the top end of his stamina these days but from a class angle makes plenty of appeal.
Creditable fifth when last seen at Cheltenham in May in much stronger contest. That form would put him in the mix if fitness not an issue.
Has won a Point-to-point but last of four on recent rules debut at Leicester and plenty more needed to figure.
Goes well for this rider and runner up in Point-to-point last month. Generally a safe jumper and holds place claims.
Multiple Point-to-point winner in the past but doesn't seem the force of old though fir from a third place last month.
