Back-to-back winner of chases at Leicester (2m4f, good to firm) and Haydock (good), and improved again last time back there, after a 10lb rise. More needed, however, to win from this high.
Best on bottomless ground, so softening of conditions would be a plus. Blinkers go on here, but bit to prove from this mark.
Romped home by 16L at Sedgefield last time, for which he has gone up 8lb. Previous form suggests that he will find it tough to follow up from this mark.
Heavy ground maiden hurdle win was his sole success to date. Has several pieces of useful form, however, and now finds himself with a stellar yard. Support would make him more interesting.
Has won here on soft over 3m, but inconsistent and was thrashed in a Wetherby seller last time, after which he left Donald McCain for this yard. Plenty to prove.
French chase winner over a similar trip. Conditions no problem, and has plummeted in the weights since last seen in 2017. Well being to prove, however.
