Idled in front when winning over C&D last time but was clear after the final fence and the new headgear might sort that out. That was his second C&D win and, from just a 3lb higher mark, a third success is highly likely.
A well supported favourite when winning here last time out and merits serious consideration despite the 7lb hike. He does have form to reverse with Creadan Grae though and needs a lot to go his way.
1-2 over fences and very possible he's got more to offer; needs to better his latest start when back over timber but this longer trip is in his favour and he's on a potentially lenient mark. One to consider.
Won a point-to-point for his former trainer before landing a brace over hurdles at this course; not disgraced back over fences last time and interesting he's being kept so busy. Another who merits checking out in the betting market.
Won over 2m here last July and ran as if in need of the outing when a well beaten third back at this course earlier this month. He's coped with this trip in the past and is well handicapped on old form. Dangerous to rule out.
Fourth behind Creadan Grae last time and was easily brushed aside when he was headed; he's very consistent though, and the 2lb lower mark will help. Has won over C&D so another who shouldn't be underestimated.
