Yet to win a handicap but still early days for the gelding and he ran well until tiring near the finish at Plumpton latest. The drop in trip may help here. One to bear in mind.
Made all to win over C&D last month, confirming the promise he showed on his belated hurdles debut the previous month. Likely there's more to come and has to be considered as a contender in this company.
Consistent mare that has already proved profitable to follow. Been off since December but can go well after a break. One to monitor closely in the betting.
A middle distance winner on the Flat in France and taken to hurdles with natural ability; won her first two starts in fine style, the latest over C&D. That form has taken a knock but this mare has done nothing wrong and she merits serious respect.
Ran on well to score here on his penultimate start but didn't really fire from an 8lb higher mark last time. Dropped 2lb here but still has a bit to prove on face value.
Won a couple of races for his former yard but yet to recapture his best for his current stable. Might also prefer more cut in the ground.
Form figures read well and improved since undergoing wind surgery to win last time out. Not been seen since October and might just strip fitter for this outing. The betting can guide.
Rated 82 at his best on the Flat but hurdles form so far has only been modest. However, there were encouraging signs at Newbury last time and gelding could be good value for a place in the frame if stepping things up a couple of notches here.
