Very one paced and yet to trouble the scorer in nine career starts to date. Makes debut for new yard though and champion jockey doing the steering so there could be some improvement anticipated.
Won three times in winter of 2017 at around 2.4f and absent 15 months prior to fair second in Catterick novices h'cap chase last time. Reverts to timber but still 6lb higher than last winning mark.
Been in good form this term winning at Kelso in December than over C&D last time off 8lb higher mark. Ran plenty of good races in between so another bold show on the cards despite 5lb hike in the weights.
Stayed on well to score at Newcastle in January but 9lb rise looked harsh and couldn't follow up when third at Carlisle in February. Runs off same mark so has his work cut out once again.
Connections paid £68,000for him after winning point-to-point last spring. Only mid-division in three novice hurdles and has undergone a wind operation. First start back and makes handicap bow for good yard but needs to step up on previous efforts.
Ex-Irish point-to-pointer who finished midfield on only starts so far under Rules for current yard in Catterick 2m novice hurdle. Steps up a mile on handicap debut and first-time cheekpieces now applied.
Yet to score in 12 starts but was unlucky at Catterick in January when going well 2 out only for rider to lose an iron. Went down by just half a length there but is now 7lb higher under same pilot.
Goes on any ground and ran solid race when second at Huntingdon last month in similar event under today's jockey. 4lb higher mark makes life tougher but has fair claims.
Little to show in five starts for Ben Case and makes debut here for new stable after tailing off last time in Chepstow novice hurdle. Making handicap debut too off lowly mark.
Approaching three years since his last win which came over 2m1f. Hasn't raced beyond 2m4f so stamina must be open to question. Yard without a jumps winner for 996 days.
Six-race maiden who has yet to show any sign of taking advantage of a falling handicap mark and will do well to make her presence felt in this contest.
In good form last spring winning at both Towcester and Uttoxeter for Emma Reed. Yet to score for top yard and pulled up last time at Uttoxeter. In poor form at present.
17-race maiden who has shown very little to write home about this season at long odds in all starts. Looks to face a very tough task yet again.
Maiden mare who has never appeared likely to trouble the judge in seven starts at up to 2m4f. Takes a step up in trip here but on balance has a very stiff task.
Won twice at 2m4f in 2017 but has had issues since then and hasn't shown much at all this term since returning from long spell on the sidelines.
