C&D winner who returned to action last November following a 445-day lay-off. Has shown little on his two starts since his return but is down in class so has been given a good chance here.
Made a return to action after 341 days at Wetherby back in March. Jumped poorly on his two starts following his comeback. Has won off 6lh higher than this mark though so if he jumps better, he can't be discounted.
Was second in a hurdle race at Limerick over 3m last July but has been disappointing in his three starts since then. Back over fences but others preferred.
Won nicely over the extended 2m4f trip at Southwell last week. Been given a 7lb penalty for that success but still appeals at the weights over a longer distance.
Has won twice over hurdles but not looked like scoring yet in his four starts over fences. Blinkers on for first time but needs to find a lot of improvement.
Veteran who has only won once in his career. Ran okay at Worcester (2m4f) last time out. Others preferred here.
Still a maiden at 52 races and with being 42lb outside the handicap, has a lot to do to be in the mix.
