First time cheekpieces go on following a pulled up effort at Worcester last month. Down 3lb but will need to leave that readily behind. Others preferred.
Two from six over hurdles but last seen in this sphere back at the end of 2017. Has enjoyed some decent Flat form since and distance didn't suit last time. Likely to go well.
Needed his first run back this year and much improved when paying late for a final flight mistake at Ffos Las last month. Down another 1lb and should be primed for a big run.
Winner off 4lb lower at Fakenham in October last year and has produced similar form with two seconds the last twice. Down 1lb and looks very likely to go close once again for stable going well.
Had been struggling until running close down to this grade at Warwick last month. Up 1lb but remains on a decent mark albeit in a better contest. Can't be overlooked.
Has some decent form fresh so could be primed for first run since November of last year. Switches from fences back to hurdles but on quite a high mark in this sphere.
Had displayed a progressive profile when finishing fifth on handicap and season debut. Weakened badly late last time over 2m3.5f and clearly didn't stay. Should be better back in trip and a likely contender.
Twice a winner over hurdles but 7lb higher than handicap win and has looked in the grip of the handicapper the last twice. Others likely better weighted.
Has failed to complete in last four point-to-points and a hunter chase for previous two yards and while well handicapped on old hurdle form, is likely best watched on stable debut.
