In tremendous form, not out of the first two in his last five starts and clearly likes this track (two wins here in the spring). Trip ideal although deep ground might not be his preferred surface, and under a big weight, is no good thing.
Looking very well treated these days and won't mind the ground, but two awful efforts since coming back from a long break (made favourite both times) temper any enthusiasm for him. Needs to bounce back to best, and that looks unlikely.
Faller here in June (early in the race, but was in front) and turned in a good effort when runner-up in a maiden hurdle here last time. Made for fences, so no surprise if he improves, although yet to race on ground this deep.
Next to nothing to shout about in his form of last year and hasn't been seen out since finishing well beaten at Ayr in February. Bred to do better over fences, but until showing a bit more, is best watched.
Very little to shout about in his Rules form to date (has won a couple of small point-to-points in his time) and hasn't been seen out for over a year now. Minor money the best he can probably hope for.
