Up in trip but has shown enough to suggest the sterner test will suit; sound claims off just 1lb above his last winning mark if his stamina holds out.
Won at Listowel last summer but before landing a decent prize in a competitive handicap hurdle at Galway in August. Three starts since joining his current yard have been below that standard though.
Lightly raced and has already run consistently; has room to move from this introductory handicap mark; well worth a betting check at least.
Ran well over C&D on seasonal bow last month and subsequently ran with credit to finish third at Wincanton; should be sharper here but is 9lb above his last winning mark.
Has won a bumper and over hurdles at Ludlow but form away from that course is hit or miss; very much a case of the latter at Cheltenham last month and the gelding needs to up his game. This is easier and the jockey booking says plenty; place claims.
Well backed for a Listed race at Cheltenham last month but never got competitive; she's better than that and may find this ease in grade suits. Needs to prove her stamina though.
Won over an extended 2m at Taunton in March and is only 3lb higher this time; respected but firmer ground has to be a worry.
Form took a big dip towards the end of his time with his former yard. Needs to step things up considerably this time. (Debut run for his current yard.)
