- 2m 3f 83y,
- 9 Runners
- Surface: Turf
15 race maiden returned from a break when 2½L fourth in a handicap chase over an extended 2m5f at Market Rasen (good) last month. One for the shortlist despite carrying top weight in this contest.
Dual hurdles winner earlier this season and had wind surgery prior to finishing 22L fourth over an extended 2m7f at Chepstow (good-to-soft) last time out. Dropping in trip and won a handicap hurdle off this mark at Exeter (good) in November.
Maiden after six starts and finished a well beaten fourth in a small field novices' event on handicap debut over an extended 2m at Newbury (good-to-soft) in December. Stepping up in trip following a break.
Victorious over 2m5f on good ground here in May last year but absent since finishing 49L sixth in a 3m handicap event at this venue the following month. Interesting to see how he fares down in trip on return from an absence.
Good 5L fourth in a 2m handicap chase on soft ground here earlier this month. Returning from a break that day and was a C&D winner in a selling chase here 12 months ago.
Ten race maiden pulled up over an extended 2m7f at Kelso (good) in May last year. Changed stables and had wind surgery since and market support would be notable on return to action.
Course winner but held in six starts since winning over an extended 1m7f at Worcester (good) in September last year. Handicap mark is falling as a result and finds himself on a mark 6lb lower than for that victory.
Returning from a short break when a promising third at Uttoxeter (3m, good) three weeks ago. Dropped 1lb for that effort and is of interest with the drop in distance in his favour.
Handicap chase winner at Warwick (2m4f, good) in September last year. Some fair efforts in defeat since including when 22L fifth at Newcastle (2m4f, good-to-soft) last time out when returning from a break.
