Placed over C&D on his penultimate start but is still a maiden and reverted to type back here last month; his lack of consistency is off-putting.
Recent form figures read well and is only 1lb above his last winning mark; dangerous if allowed an easy time up front. Worth considering.
Suited by the nature of this course and won well on his return from wind surgery last month; wasn't so good last time out but does respond well for today's rider so could feasibly bounce back. Worth a betting check.
Consistent last year but has been off since he posted a moderate display at Catterick in January. Has a bit to prove and is 0-7 so far over hurdles.
Won a brace on the AW last February and feasible to say he can go well fresh. Set to race from just 4lb above his last winning mark is probably better than he showed when last seen out. Highly positive jockey booking also boosts the interest.
Had wind surgery since last seen and is potentially on a handy mark; still unexposed over hurdles and worth a betting check with the ground conditions to suit.
Represents a yard that has won the last two renewals of this race and the gelding arrives in good heart having won two of his last three starts. Just held over fences last time but is still on a winning mark and is likely to be popular once more.
Had numerous chances but is still 0-18 and his limitations are plain to see. Dropped 1lb since his last run and is now on a career lowest mark; hard to recommend for win only purposes.
