Just 2lb higher than when winning at Market Rasen in August, and similar form when runner-up over C&D next time. Below form since, however, and ran badly at Wetherby last time.
Runner-up off current mark at Musselburgh in November 2017, but has been off the track since the end of that month, and hard to see this veteran being ready to win after such an absence.
Front-runner who scored over C&D in January off 7lb lower. Not disgraced in three starts since, but handicapper looks in charge for the time being. Tried in cheekpieces now.
Well placed to win both starts at Plumpton for current yard after a lengthy absence, reverted to hurdles last time. Returns to fences with some mileage left in his mark, and the hat-trick beckons.
Second over 2m3½f here in August. and probably needed the run after a break at Carlisle recently. Yard has started the new season well, and this mare has place claims if improving for that comeback run.
Best when dictating, but only poor form when second in a blanket finish here in March, and disappointing on quicker ground at Hexham last time.
Veteran who has been competitive from reduced mark of late, winning at big prices here in March and at Newcastle in April. Not so good the last twice, but top rider booked, and should be running on late in the day.
