Showed promise on debut of his current yard but has been below expectations twice since. More has been expected of him and the application of a hood may provide the key. One to monitor in the betting even though he's been disappointing.
Won this race last year but is 10lb higher and needs to post a career best to follow up on these terms. Has been in good form lately, which bodes very well. Solid claims if she can prove the assessor wrong.
Was yet to be really popped a question when she unseated here on her penultimate start but did put the record straight with a win at Lingfield last month. Was second in this race last year but is 5lb better off with Potters Midnight. Good chance.
Not fully exposed over hurdles and is on a workable mark. Dangerous to underestimate now he's getting the hang of things. Worth a betting check at least.
Not achieved much since his win as a novice hurdler and plenty to prove after he flopped under a change of tactics last time; usually makes the running but has occasionally spoiled his chances by running freely.
Another who is open to improvement over hurdles and is better than he showed last time out. Best effort have been posted at Sandown so debatable as to whether this tight left-handed track will bring the best out of him.
Still learning and the step back to the minimum trip is likely to suit given the way he got tired over 2m5f at Ludlow last month. Improvement still needed.
Won a claimer last November and been kept busy since. Not enjoyed much success under either code of racing though and likely he'll find one or two more wily in a finish once more.
