Veteran who won three times at Towcester last spring but found life much tougher under the revised handicap marks. Well held here latest and a stiff test ahead under top weight.
The form of his latest start has already been franked and the gelding returns to the scene of his course win from last year on a very handy mark. Gets on well with today's rider and another bold effort is likely. Worth considering.
Looked anchored by an 11lb rise after his win at Hereford two years ago and endured a couple of long absences since. Failed to complete three times since his return to action and is almost impossible to recommend on recent evidence.
Stayed on well to score over 3m1f here earlier this month. Up 6lb for those exertions but very feasible he'll cope well. Plenty of scope for improvement over fences. Player.
Was well backed here last time but brushed aside easily by Findusatgorcombe as the race unfolded. 8lb better off with that rival today but was the best part of 20l adrift at the line. Needs a lot to go her way to reverse the form.
Still a maiden but does have scope for improvement over fences. However, this is a big step up in trip and it's not certain that he'll be ideally suited. Risk attached.
Ran well here a couple of times but recent form has been a mixed bag. Stiff test from out of the weights and would be a surprise winner.
