Good-looking horse that's slowly but surely getting the hang of things in novice hurdles, showing a bit more last time out. Goes into handicaps on a realistic enough mark and no surprise if improvement was forthcoming here.
Only second start for new yard, not disgraced in the first of them at Ludlow last month and it's possible this slower ground may help her cause a bit. Unexposed enough to improve and not totally discounted.
No win in 13 starts a concern, but is very well handicapped on the best of his form and yard's horses just starting to come back into some form. Needs a bit of a leap of faith but a better effort wouldn't be the biggest surprise.
Not showing much at present and although fourth in a similar handicap at Wincanton last time, never threatened and was well beaten. Plenty to do to get involved here.
Her seventh to The Some Dance Kid at Bangor in December is working out pretty well, and she didn't seem to get 20f at Hereford last time, so this drop back in trip no bad thing. More to come from her and a market move makes her very interesting.
Has some plus points to her name, not least the fact she won this last year (from a 7lb lower mark), looks to have been readied with another crack at this in mind but her run on the Flat at Wolverhampton in January left a bit to be desired.
Hadn't been seen out for the best part of two years before reappearing at Sedgefield last month (debut for this yard) and wasn't unfancied. In retrospect, may have needed that and needs keeping onside here, especially if strong in the market.
Not doing a lot at the moment but it's early days and he simply didn't stay 3m last time out. Yard capable of landing leftfield gambles with horses that are seemingly out of form, so watch the market is the advice.
Very hard to win with but on a fair mark on the best of her form, and has an interesting jockey booking. Trip and ground no issue and a reproduction of her close third at Warwick in January would give her a squeak here.
Pretty consistent efforts in the main, although very hard to win with (just 2 wins in 51 starts). Handles all ground, trip fine and looks on the way back to form after a close fourth at Uttoxeter last time. Place chances again.
Just 2 wins in 32 starts an obvious enough concern, and despite being quite well backed last couple of starts has shown very little. Well handicapped but a risky proposition at the best of times.
Was going nowhere quickly until putting in a better effort at Wincanton last time, beaten less than 3l in a blanket finish. Different ground to cope with here is the worry, but at least that was a step in the right direction.
