Hacked up when making all at Exeter last April in the mud. Not disgraced both runs this term on a sound surface and will appreciate this return to softer conditions.
Beginning to struggle on first attempt at this trip and on soft ground at Sandown when unseating rider 2 out on latest. Previous run at Huntingdon puts him in the mix if he stays this far.
Won on good ground debut here last summer but has failed to build on that. Worth a go at this longer trip judged on his Flat form but bit to prove.
Did well to win at Warwick last May but not so good since and has to show this longer trip is what she wants.
Showed improvement off the back of a wind operation when third here last month and every chance there could be more to come. Respected in a weak handicap for the grade.
Standing dish at this venue and emphatic win over C&D on Boxing Day. Ran up to that form when fourth on latest and can't be discounted receiving plenty of weight from his rivals.
