Still a maiden but her yard won this race in 2017 and the mare is respected as a long distance raider from an in-form yard (with the champion jockey in the plate too!) She goes well with cut in the ground but well held last time.
A respectable effort at Downpatrick last time reads well but the mare rarely runs two races the same and can throw the towel in when pressed. Her record of 1-36 says she's one to be wary of despite the lenient current mark.
Well beaten in both starts since returning from a break and others can lay out far stronger cases for support.
Won a point-to-point but is still a maiden under rules and form for her current yard has been regressive. On a lenient mark but that's probably for good reason.
Still has some scope and was good value for the winning margin over fences last time; hurdles form in Ireland was respectable but he's still 0-5 over timber. Still, he races from a competitive mark and would be dangerous to omit from the equation.
Won this by a couple of lengths last year and only 2lb higher for this repeat bid. Recent form has been mixed but still able to force the issue when he's on song. Place claims at least.
Ran well over fences at Uttoxeter last month and still unexposed as far as handicapping goes back over timber. Worth a betting check even though the mare still needs to step up from previous form in this sector.
1-8 in point-to-points but still a maiden under rules and hurdles form has been poor so far. Not hard to overlook this time.
Yet to win a race but does have snippets of past form that give him an outside chance at this level. It's a long way back in his form profile though and he's had a lot of similar chances he's not taken since.
Another with a winless profile and very hard to recommend given the way he struggled before being pulled up over C&D last time. (6lb wrong at the weights.)
