Fair dual purpose mare who goes on any ground and has five wins to her name. May have needed the run after a break when weakening from 4 out at Wetherby last time but is not out of this off 1lb lower mark.
In fine form and bids for a course hat-trick after wining twice at two miles. Bolted up last time but hit with 11lb rise and has extra half mile to tackle here. Remains a serious contender though in current form.
Won maiden huurdle over this trip at Huntingdon 15 months ago when trained by Nicky Henderson. Has struggled in two starts for current yard but returns now following wind surgery so there may be some improvement. Worth a market check.
Lost his way first four starts this term but back to winning form at Wetherby last week, scoring with plenty in hand follow four-month break. 7lb penalty and bounce factor always a danger, but should go close if none the worse for recent exertions.
Placed three times at Ayr this winter before outclassed at Aintree arlier this month. Eased 3lb and faces more realistic task but may find a few two good for him once again.
Won two novice hurdle at Musselburgh (2m) this Febraury but unable to make an impression on handicap bow at Wetherby latest. Step up in trip not certain to help the cause but is not without hope.
Veteran who scored here over nearly 3m early in the term then over further still at Sedgefield following start. Pulled up when behind at Market Rasen last month following break and may find this trip on the sharp side off current mark.
