Latest run looks flattering given he dictated a moderate pace which did not suit the principals. Nevertheless, his priors, including an excellent third to Thomas Darby in a bumper, indicate he should more than hold his own in this grade.
Kap Rock gelding out of a dam who was placed over fences in France. Stable 3-11 in the past week and took this contest last year.
Flopped on Bangor debut before splitting a useful pair last time. Looks the clear form pick but possibly does not want it too soft. Stable 16-54 with their hurdlers here since 2014.
French import with a 1-13 record and who has been chasing lately. Form hard to evaluate, but he is untested at the trip and he is accustomed to racing on much slower ground.
Fetched £40,000 after finishing second in a run of the mill point-to-point. Showed some promise on bumper debut last month and yard in better form now than they were then.
Flat-bred son of Street Cry who is a half-brother to Kentucky Derby runner-up Ice Box. Tailed-off on both starts to date and makes no appeal here.
Finished alone when winning a point-to-point at the fourth attempt. Tailed-off on both starts under rules and hard to recommend in this company.
