Poor completion rate in point-to-points and has also failed to finish in both starts under rules. Big improvement required.
A maiden under both codes who showed very little on hurdling debut last time. Not too difficult to recommend looking elsewhere for the most likely winner.
Showed some promise on debut in a bumper but failed to make much of an impact when tried over hurdles for the first time latest; open to improvement but may need more time.
Won a couple of bumpers and likely that he can leave what was an inauspicious debut over hurdles well behind him. Been given plenty of time since his latest starts and has to be of interest with the champion jockey back in the plate.
Rated 82 at his best on the Flat but has yet to make any sort of positive impression over hurdles. Hard to fancy from a betting perspective.
Won five times on the Flat (mainly AW surfaces) but not shown much aptitude for the jumping game since switching codes. Others make more appeal.
Shown promise on a couple of occasions and may have a bit more to offer. Worth a betting check as the mare could be good value for a place in the frame.
Won a point-to-point and has shown ability over hurdles; faced a very stiff test when finishing fifth behind a highly progressive mare latest. That was her first start after wind surgery; the betting can guide as to how much more there is to come.
His jumping left a lot to be desired on debut at Newbury in December and likely this fellow needs more experience before he can be seriously recommended. A step up in trip is also likely to suit before too long.
Rated 74 at his best on the Flat and acts with a bit a bit of give under foot. Interesting recruit for this type of event. One to monitor in the betting.
A moderate handicapper over middle distances on the Flat and needs to improve greatly upon his hurdling debut run at Ludlow in January.
Rated 81 when trained on the Flat by James Fashawe, the gelding has shown plenty of promise in two starts since switching codes. Went close here last time and has a big chance if able to use that as a platform to better things.
