Sole career win came at Warwick over 2m in September last. Has joined new handler and interesting to see how he fares in the betting on stable bow.
Won novice chases at Bangor and Southwell last season but was pulled up both starts either side of a layoff/wind op. Reverts to hurdling with something to prove.
Landed Uttoxeter selling hurdle in June then runner-up last time over extra 2f in similar event 11 days ago. Makes debut for new yard now and has fair claims.
Winner of Uttoxeter selling hurdle in June (2m, good to soft) and found only one too good in same grade at Stratford (2m2½f, good) last month. Starts for new handler now back in handicap.
Dual hurdles winner but lost his way over fences last year and hasn't been doing any better in point-to-points of late. Others preferred.
Winner at Bangor in June over 2m3½f but didn't fancy task next time from 6lb higher at Cartmel. Chance of bouncing back here.
Thrives at this venue, winner early last month and since finishing well-held second. Return to this trip favourable and should go well.
Hasn't beaten much home in two spins around Hexham and Bangor since returning from a layoff. Knows where the winning line is if finding form.
Ex-Ian Williams inmate, twice won over timber previously but hasn't shown enough starts Ffos Las and here (2m, good to soft) since joining this trainer. Opposable.
Made a solid start in handicaps with a placed effort over this sort of trip at Uttoxeter in June, not as good over further there since but early days and drop in trip may help.
Has undergone a wind operation since last spotted in November. 5-36 record over timber, including a course win last year over 2m. Stamina taken on trust.
Back from three months off at Southwell recently with another sub-par effort, hard to summon confidence given string of poor efforts.
