Returning from a break when finishing 17L third in a 3m handicap hurdle at Musselburgh (good) last time out. Drops in grade and trip here and is an interesting runner in this contest.
Promising fourth in a 2m4f handicap hurdle at Musselburgh (good-to-soft) last time out. Regular amateur rider on board once more and races off a mark 9lb lower than for his latest success.
Good 1L second in a 2m handicap hurdle at Kelso (good) last October on final start for previous yard. Struggled on debut for this stable in February however and others hold stronger claims.
Point-to-point winner and placed in a bumper in 2017. Failed to trouble the judge in three starts over hurdles and market support would be notable stepping up in trip on handicap debut.
Beaten 59L when finishing last of seven in a maiden hurdle over 2m5f at Warwick (good) on debut for this yard last month. Returning from 13 months off the track that day and is worth a check in the market on handicap debut.
Point-to-point winner on yielding ground in March last year. Best effort in three hurdles starts came when fourth over 2m4f at Sedgefield (good-to-soft) last month. Worth a check in the market on handicap debut.
Placed in a point-to-point but struggled in six starts under Rules including when beaten 47L over this trip at Hereford (good) last time out. Others make more appeal.
Returning from a break when winning by 4½L in a novice selling hurdle over 2m1f at Exeter (good-to-soft) last months. Interesting runner on return to handicap company.
Winner on the Flat and came within a short-head of breaking his hurdling duck when runner-up over an extended 2m4f at Market Rasen (good) last month. Notable runner despite a 2lb rise in the weights.
