Put a below par effort behind him when finishing 14L third in a small field handicap hurdle at Hexham (2m4f, good-to-soft) in June. Blinkers worn for the first time that day are retained.
Claimed after winning a chase over an extended 2m3f at Ffos Las (good-to-soft) last October. Completed just one of his three starts for this yard and is probably best watched having pulled up at Cartmel (2m6f, soft) last time.
First start since wind surgery and returning from an absence when finishing well beaten at Hexham (2m4f, good) last time out. Others make more appeal.
Maiden hurdle winner at Huntingdon (2m, soft) in January last year. Disappointing since however including when 57L 12th on stable debut at Cartmel (2m1f, good) last time out.
Won two of his four hurdles stats in 2018 and finished a promising 11½L third in a 2m handicap hurdle at Worcester (good) on seasonal debut last month. One to note in this contest.
Point-to-point and bumper winner but failed to figure in two outings for this yard most recently on handicap debut at Hexham (2m4f, good) in June. Probably best watched at present.
Dual winner over hurdles in 2018 and ran well when 3½L fourth over 2m4f at Aintree (good-to-soft) in June. Disappointed later that month however and is interesting if putting that latest effort behind him.
Good 2L second in a 2m handicap hurdle at Ludlow in May. Below that form when sixth at Worcester (2m, good) subsequently however but remains of interest.
Successful over an extended 2m7f at Fakenham (good-to-soft) in December but disappointing in two starts since finishing runner-up over the same C&D the following month. Worth a check in the market dropping markedly in distance.
Well beaten in two starts since returning from a break most recently when 17L tenth in an 11 runner 3m handicap hurdle at Perth (good-to-soft) last month. Others hold stronger claims.
Finished 25L sixth in a C&D handicap hurdle on good ground in June last year. Failed to shine in two Flat starts in June and is probably best wathced on this occasion.
Good fourth in a 2m4f handicap chase at Warwick (good) in November on his penultimate start. Struggled at Wincanton (3m1f, good) later that month. Changed yards since and market support would be notable back over hurdles on seasonal debut.
