Represents last year's winning yard and won over C&D in May off 12lb lower mark. Scored at Fakenham over 2m in June but beaten last three starts although ran with credit on two of those occasions.
10-race maiden who only narrowly failed to make winning chasing bow at Ffos Las penultimate start before unseating early at Uttoxeter last time. Should stay and has claims if able to put in a clean round.
Won two novice hurdles including at this track and has shown enough in three starts over fences to suggest she can win a race or two in this sphere. Outpaced closing stages at Ffos Las over 2m last time so longer trip should suit.
Won 3m Southwell handicap hurdle for Caroline Bailey in May so no stamina issues. Makes debut for new connections but has looked ill at ease in most starts so far over fences. Better show not out of the question but needs to raise his game.
23-race maiden who looked certain winner over C&D last time when clear approaching last, only to empty rapidly on run-in and finish second. Big chance if ridden with a little more restraint off same mark.
Didn't show very much in five starts for Joseph O'Brien in Ireland and fell in Southwell handicap hurdle last time on third start for current yard. May do better over fences and market worth monitoring on chasing bow in weak race.
