Returning from a break when third over an extended 2m3f at Chepstow (good) last time out. Likely to have improved for the run and blinkers worn for the first time that day are retained.
12 race maiden was beaten a short-head when runner-up in a C&D handicap chase on good ground last time out. Raised 6lb for that effort and is one to note in this contest.
Returning from 11 months off the track when beaten 31L over an extended 2m1f on good ground here last month. Has won at this venue in the past.
Left solo to win a point-to-point on good ground last month and beaten a neck in that sphere at Woodford (good) subsequently. Notable runner on stable debut.
Returning from an absence when pulled up over 3m at Southwell (good) last month. Improvement likely and races off a mark 1lb lower than for his most recent victory.
Chase winner at Doncaster (3m, good-to-soft) in November 2016 but unraced since finishing sixth at Chepstow (good) the following April. Others hold stronger claims.
Beaten 1L when finishing third in a handicap hurdle over 2m at Hexham (good) earlier this month. Cheekpieces worn for the first time in that event are retained on return to fences.
Winner of four races including over an extended 2m at Newton Abbot (good-to-soft) last July. Decent efforts in two subsequent outings but probably best watched on return from a break.
