Very promising hurdler two years ago for Paul Nicholls finishing second at both the Cheltenham and Aintree Festivals. Landed 2m1f Flat handicap at Bath last term off 6lb lower mark for Nicky Henderson and makes debut here for new yard.
Scored over a mile here as a juvenile and goes in pursuit of a hat-trick after two 1m4f AW wins at Newcastle this winter under today's rider. 6lb higher and steps up 4f so stamina to prove but is in fine form.
Versatile stayer who landed 1m6f course handicap last year before winning again at Catterick later in the campaign. Hinted he was coming to hand when staying on into fourth at Pontefract recently and should be thereabouts off 2lb lower mark.
Won at Doncaster 1m4f on opening day of Flat season and followed up by just a nose over 2m at Newcastle recently. Only 3lb higher than turf win so has to be respected in current form.
Seven-time winner under both codes. Ran fair race over hurdles last time following 135-day absence and that should have tuned her up. Now 16lb than last Flat win at Catterick three years ago but may not be far away.
Martaline filly who has looked fairly slow in five starts so far and no surprise to see her stepping up again in trip. Tackles first handicap on turf so possibility of improvement for yard enjoying a fine run.
Three wins have come at up to 1m4f but was decent runner-up at this trip on Tapeta in October. Modest efforts on last two starts so on balance others are preferred.
Yet to reach even a place in 17 starts and has never raced beyond 1m4f. Step up in trip would have to produce massive improvement for him to score even off this lowly mark.
First-time cheekpieces applied on this Fast Company gelding who has shown very little in four starts, including when last of three in Southwell seller last month. Steps up half a mile in trip and has stamina to prove.
