Justified favourtism to score in a selling hurdle at Southwell (1m7½f) by 14L last month. Has since changed yards but another big performance can be expected at this level. Leading contender.
Made a winning return at Huntingdon back in April in a handicap chase. Struggled last time over fences at Newton Abbot (2m½f) where he was pulled-up before two out. Returns to hurdles. Not to be discounted.
Scored at Taunton (2m3f) back in February and since then has been running consistently well without success. She was third of six last time at Uttoxeter (2m) over fences. Has won over this distance before. One to consider.
Remains a maiden after 11 runs but has gone close on his last two starts in handicap hurdles. Was only 3L away last time at Worcester (2m4f) when fifth of nine. Dropping down in trip here. In with a good chance.
Was successful three times over fences last season. Got turned over as the 2/9 favourite last time at Stratford (2m½f) when second of nine. Remains capable at this level so worth including in your calculations.
Still a maiden after 11 starts. His latest appearance came last November where he was pulled-up at Southwell (2m4½f) in a handicap chase. Returns to hurdles on opening run for new yard. Cheekpieces on for first time. Others appeal more.
Has been a long way down the field on his two starts over hurdles so far, including latest over this C&D when ninth of 12 when going off at 100/1. Needs to produce much more so it is hard to make a case for him.
Has had a mixed season so far. The highlight of his form was when second of seven at Ludlow over 2m. Since then though, he has been well held on his two runs. Drops back down in trip since disappointing effort at Bangor (2m3½f). One to watch for now
Is 0-9 over hurdles but he did finish second behind Skeaping at Southwell (1m7½f) last time in his best finish for a while. Needs to try and find 14L on his rival here. Has each-way claims on the basis of his last run.
Lightly-raced gelding who has just the four appearances so far where he has struggled to be competitive. Could only finish eighth of 12 last time over this C&D, 50L behind the winner. Visor on for first time but difficult to make a case for.
Still searching for that maiden success after 19 runs. Has been well held on his three starts this season, including latest at Cartmel (2m1f) where he was sixth of 11. Needs to improve a lot to be in the mix.
Showed signs that she was close to her first win earlier this season when she was second on two occasions at Ffos Las. Her form has dipped recently though. Was fourth of 10 last time here over 2m2½f. Visor on for first time. Needs to produce more.
