Dual AW winner and improved on his return from a break when finishing runner-up over this C&D last time out. Raised 1lb for that effort and is one to note on this occasion.
Struggled in two starts since returning from a break most recently over 2m at Kempton last month. Drop in trip looks likely to suit and market support would be notable in this contest.
Well beaten in two starts at Southwell since winning a 1m3f contest at that venue in December. Has run well here in the past but probably best watched at present.
Dual winner over hurdles including in a small field contest over an extended 2m3f at Doncaster (good) earlier this month. Notable runner on his first Flat start in well over a year.
Broke his maiden when taking a C&D handicap by 1½L last time out. Handicapper has put him up 3lb for that success and he remains open to improvement on just his third Flat start since joining this yard.
Chasing a hat-trick following wins over 1m4f here on his penultimate start and at Kempton (1m3f) subsequently Stamina to prove off a mark 3lb higher than for his Kempton success.
Running well in defeat in recent months and beaten just ½L when finishing runner-up to Singing The Blues in a 1m3f handicap at Kempton last month. Hasn't convinced in two previous attempts at this distance.
Well held in two starts since finishing fourth in a 2m handicap at Chelmsford in January. Worth a check in the market off a mark 2lb lower than when successful at Chelmsford (1m6f) last August.
Successful on the AW at Lingfield (2m) in November 2016 but had just three starts since. Others make more appeal having finished well beaten at Kempton last month on his first start in over two years.
Pulled up in a handicap hurdle at Huntingdon (2m, good-to-soft) last month and likely best watched on his first Flat start since finishing eighth at Lingfield (2m) in November.
Beaten 4L when finishing sixth in a 1m4f handicap at Kempton in January and had equipment issues when pulling up over 1m4f at Lingfield subsequently. Looking for a first victory in nearly three years.
