Won a novice hurdle and a handicap before finding a more determined rival too good at Leicester in January. That form reads well in the context of this race and the gelding, with a 7lb claimer booked, may have more to offer.
Has ability but also been expensive to follow and his form has tailed off from his early promise to a modest effort last time out. Admittedly, that was the gelding's first run since wind surgery and a long absence but he still has plenty to prove.
Gelded at the turn of the year and has held his form reasonably well. Disappointing favourite last time out over C&D though and needs to up his game to redeem himself.
Won a point-to-point but plenty of room for improvement judging by his efforts under rules. Not shown much in two starts for his current yard and needs the first-time cheekpieces to prompt something of a transformation.
Out gunned Primal Focus over C&D latest and must enter the calculations on that evidence. However, he picks up 7lb extra and also has a bit to find with Come On Charlie and those two negatives outweigh the positives.
