Dual hurdles winner but not in the same form since his last win in May and has struggled to make an impression in two starts over fences so far (including last month). Others preferred.
Returned from a 166-days absence in fine form with two wins and a third in between. 5lb higher but he was idling last time and could be up to defying this mark. Racing consistently and likely to go well.
Eight time point winner, the latest in April and returned with a solid effort at Bangor in May. Won a Hunter Chase here last year and is a consistent performer. No reason he shouldn't go well again following a wind operation.
Followed a spell in reasonably competitive Hunter Chases with a poor effort on stable debut back in a handicap last month. On a fair mark off his best form but others look stronger candidates.
Won a Towcester maiden hurdle in May last year and not disgraced albeit in a modest contest in May's chase debut. Open to improvement but much more required off current mark.
Only had the four starts over hurdles and left that form behind with an improved effort on chasing debut. Rallied well following a mistake at the last and likely to improve in first time cheekpieces. Nice imposing sort physically and a likely type.
Course winner over hurdles and twice a winner over fences last year. 3lb lower than last win but form in three starts this year appears to be going backwards. Much more needed in first time visor.
Three time course winner over shorter but that last coming in October 2016. Well beaten on reappearance and looks one to oppose once again.
