Steady form in France but left that well behind with impressive UK and stable debut. Won with loads in hand and could be way ahead of the handicapper under this penalty. The one to beat.
Remains high in the handicap at 5lb higher than last win but reeling out some consistent performances on the AW, however is shaping as a Newcastle specialist.
Arguably on a high mark at present but ran with great credit on reappearance and starting to post some consistent performances. Likely to be involved again.
Remains 4lb higher than last winning mark but has had some tough tasks. Best when front-running and ran with great credit over a distance too far here on reappearance. Should go well.
Two wins from 10 starts for Ed Dunlop and now makes season and stable debut. Purchased for 27,000gns and market likely best guide for stable seeking winners.
A shadow of his former self and continues to be badly out of form over hurdles and on the Flat. Drop in trip raises even further question marks and others preferred.
Rattled off a hat-trick last summer and back on last winning mark, however last three runs (all at this track) including on reappearance have been poor and more required.
Tough ask on reappearance but tends to need a couple of runs at least to get going. However is proving inconsistent and needs to lift.
