No form over hurdles since joining current yard but showed ability on the Flat when trained in Ireland and certainly needs monitoring in market with cheek pieces now added.
Ran up to best when third here last time but that was over 2m and this a is a rare go at this shorter trip.
Admirable veteran who will appreciate the slight drop in class. Loads of form here but without a win now since 2017.
Generally consistent last term and has the from to figure here if ready to go after a break but well beaten only previous run here.
5L win off basement mark here three starts ago. Not quite as good since off this higher mark although inadequate trip on first occasion.
Desperate form when trained in Ireland but left that well behind on first run for this yard when just pipped over 1m6f here recently. The winner has since followed up and although drop in trip possibly not ideal, repeat will see him go close.
20 race maiden and although place claims on best of his form, may again find a few too good for him.
Just the one career win but in good nick and showed this trip holds no fears when fair second on latest after similar efforts at shorter.
Off the mark in a desperate seller at the track on penultimate start but well beaten since and easy to look elsewhere.
Connections trying different trips to try and squeeze more out of him but just looking short of the required to break his maiden.
Sprang a huge shock over hurdles at Wincanton when winning at 66/1 in November. Bits of form on the Flat but generally seems better at the winter game.
Chased home Going Native here on latest to add another placed run to his name . More needed for win purposes but solid place claims once again.
Losing run building up and hard to see the veteran arresting the slide from out of the handicap here.
No ability in four runs including recent handicap debut. Needs to improve markedly for this longer trip and/or first time cheek pieces.
