Irish point winner (soft) who has shown some promise over hurdles. Backward step when well held over a similar trip at Kelso last time. Initial mark looks feasible, tongue-tie added, and could go well.
Scored over a similar trip at Kelso (heavy) last April, when 4lb lower. Well held in all starts since, including point-to-points. Looks best watched until showing signs of revival.
Not had a great time of things over fences on his last two starts, so reverts to this sphere. Has dropped to a handy mark, gets this trip and handles conditions, so revival not ruled out, but does need one.
Won a class 2 event at Carlisle (3m, heavy) in December, when 9lb lower. Well held from similar marks to this since, so arrives with plenty to prove.
Well treated on his form of 2017. On a lengthy losing run since, acts on soft ground and took a small step in the right direction again last time. More needed, but not ruled out of the prizes.
Debut hurdles winner in France in 2015, but has only made the racecourse twice since. Not devoid of ability still by the look of his Ayr reappearance/stable debut last month, so check the market for clues this time.
Dual winner this season, both on good, including last time out at Huntingdon. Up 6lb for that, but score for him to find a little more, so not ruled out again. Acts on soft.
