Has to prove conclusively he stays this far and can be keen. This represents a drop in class but not at best so far this term.
Yet to race beyond 1m4f and best form this season on the AW. Well beaten over hurdles when last seen in May and others preferred.
Placed twice over 1m2f this season but yet to race beyond 1m3f and needs to improve for the extra 3f here to trouble the best of these.
Pontefract third over 1m4f in May would put him in the mix but not as good in two runs since and sole try at this trip didn't convince he stayed it.
Sprang a 28/1 shock at Carlisle last August off a higher mark but well below that form in three runs this term though did win on sole previous run here in 2016 (1m2f) so hopes rest on return to venue inspiring him.
Didn't see out 2m on latest and although she knows how to win, isn't the easiest to predict. Partnered by rider tonight seeking first career win.
Still a maiden but ran creditable latest when third at 50/1 over 1m4f. Stays this far and a repeat effort would put him in the shake up.
Off the mark at the 27th attempt at Lingfield in May and then did too much too soon when tailed off at Bath last time. Claims if that run is forgiven.
Still a maiden but Wetherby third over 2m on penultimate start would make him of interest but failed to build on that when disappointing at Kempton since.
Won a claiming hurdle at Huntingdon in the autumn but has been really struggling under both codes of late and needs to bounce back to figure here.
Wolverhampton win over a year ago but has lost her way first for Dan Skelton and shown little since joining current yard. Not hard to look elsewhere.
Well backed when taking this a year ago off the same mark and not disgraced when second to in-form rival at the track on penultimate start. This venue seems to bring out the best in her and looks set to feature again.
Found 1m3f too sharp on latest and return to this trip will help. Relatively low mileage and has shown bits of form to make him of some interest back at this trip.
Sole win was gained nearly two years ago. Has looked on recent efforts as though a return to this trip is now what she wants and could improve on what she has shown of late.
Poor form and no better for a breathing operation. Hard to make a case for from 6lb out of the handicap.
