Hasn't won since his seasonal reappearance in 2016, though largely campaigned over hurdles in that time. Well beaten on return to the level at Southwell last time though and while well-handicapped on his best for, he doesn't look the force of old.
Failed to finish on her last two starts over hurdles but she performed well in three starts here last year without quite managing to get her head in front. Race fitness on her side and expected to go well.
Arrives here bidding for a hat-trick after two wins at Southwell. Yet to win in four turf starts on the Flat though and may be vulnerable from this sort of handicap mark; expected to try and make the running here.
Running well over hurdles since joining this yard but still a maiden under both codes and has stamina to prove on first try at this trip; others hold stronger claims here.
Very consistent sort but hasn't won on turf since a 1m3f Ripon win in August 2017. Yet to run over further than 2m so stamina must be taken on trust and he's still well above his highest winning handicap mark.
Yet to win in 25 starts and hasn't shown any of his best form around here. Also has stamina to prove and something of a mystery why he hasn't been gelded yet. Has a first go at this trip and needs to improve for it.
