Decent handicapper on the Flat and she's shown plenty of ability in three starts over hurdles for her new connections. Only going one way at present and the slight step up in trip should eke out a bit of improvement. Solid claims.
Still a maiden after eight starts over hurdles but starting to get the hang of things now and the handicapper is starting to relent. Doesn't always jump fluently but booking of Moore is a positive and he has each-way claims.
Very inconsistent mare and her very best efforts have come with more cut in the ground than she looks likely to get here. The handicapper is probably in control from this sort of handicap mark.
Has won three of his 20 hurdles starts including a C&D success back in August. Hasn't won from a mark this high and has looked held on recent starts but not without each-way claims as he continues in form.
Lost his maiden tag when winning over fences at Tipperary in July but two subsequent runs in the autumn have been disappointing, particularly last time when pulled-up at Plumpton. Needs to leave that form well behind on his return here.
Won a bumper for Willie Mullins in Ireland but he's failed to show enough in five starts for this yard to be of interest here, despite the handicapper dropping him another 3lb.
Showed some promise in his first three starts over hurdles but disappointed when pulled up last time with no obvious excuse. Likes to get out in front in his races and not ruled out if they allow him an uncontested lead here.
Has barely finished in three starts for this yard but wouldn't be without a chance on his form from around a year ago. Has run okay on this sort of ground and interesting contender if the first-time tongue-tie has the desired effect.
