Hasn't sparkled in two chase runs since returning from a long absence, now goes back over hurdles with more needed. Yard in red-hot form, so worth a check.
Point-to-point winner, began hurdles career with pleasing second at Huntingdon in the spring, though has gone the wrong way since and questions to be answered now.
Won twice in three starts over timber back in the autumn, has been off for six months prior to this run, so entitled to come on for it.
Smart Flat performer, yet to sparkle since going over hurdles but early days and is in good hands, ensuring better things may still be coming.
C&D winner last summer, has shaped with promise in recent starst at Kempton and Market Rasen and needs taking seriously returned to this circuit.
Came from off the pace to finish second at Ludlow in May, an improvement on recent efforts. Not a cast-iron certainty to build on that positive step however.
Loves it here, with six wins at the track. Won't be hanging around and not wise to allow this course specialists enjoy a soft advantage.
Second runner for Dan Skelton in this line-up, didn't pull up any trees on stable debut in May at Uttoxeter and appears to be the yard's second string on jockey bookings.
