Built on an encouraging chase debut when scoring at Market Rasen after a break in March; likely to have been found out by the trip and rise in class in two starts since. Drop back in both of those spheres now with a visor on for the first-time.
Never managed to build on a successful start over fences last year producing a real mixed bag of efforts since (pulled up in first-time cheekpieces last time). Should prove more effective back over this 2m; not one to have total confidence in.
His third at Newton Abbot last time (2m5f) just added to a long losing run and he's starting to look more and more unreliable despite a rapidly falling mark. Not run at this trip for a while but looks to be lacking enthusiasm of late.
Back-to-back winner over 2m at Chepstow early last year in softer conditions than he'll face here. Still 4lb above his last winning mark and failed to complete in three of his last four starts (pulled up last two); something to prove.
Threatened to come good over fences and hurdles late last year but never fulfilled that promise he showed in both spheres. Testing conditions may have been to blame for a poor effort when last seen; returns to fences (not the best of jumpers).
Just the sort that this yard specialise in rejuvenating (won three of his last four starts); returns to fences after overcoming a pace bias to win over hurdles at Market Rasen. Back over fences; still looks extremely well weighted on recent exploits.
Course regular but has only been placed once here although he did look back to near his best when taking a weak Plumpton handicap last time. Now up 7lb in a far better race and will do well to match that performance.
Has to operate from 9lb out of the handicap which is far from ideal but more importantly has shown little worthwhile form of late. Fared poorly when put back over fences last time; would be a major shock if she could win this.
