Yet to race this far under Rules but kept on stoutly when just denied over 2m4f at Perth last time and could improve for the longer trip. 4lb higher for yard in good form at present.
Came home with a wet sail to score over C&D in June off 4lb lower mark but hasn't made much impression in two runs since. 2-4 course record suggests he's better here than elsewhere though so not impossible he might bounce back.
Won three times last autumn at up to around this trip but jumped 16lb in the process. Best effort since when runner-up at Ffos Las in June and first-time visor may help focus his mind.
17-race Irish maiden prior to joining current yard in July where won at first time of asking landing Market Rasen 2m4f h'cap hurdle. Looked held in second when ran out at final flight at Southwell last month and more needed to defy 6lb rise.
Stable companion of Handy Hollow. Last win came off 11lb lower mark at Kelso in heavy ground in January 2018 over 2m2f but has won over further and stays this trip. Poor run latest in blinkers (left off now) at Kelso in March.
Stayed on well to score over 2m4f at ffos Las in June off 5lb lower mark. Faded fast from last at Cartmel recently over shorter and first-time tongue-tie now applied. Yet to race this far so stamina has to be taken on trust.
Irish raider who has shown precious little so far in three runs in novice and maiden hurdles. Makes handicap debut here stepping up half a mile following latest last of 8 at Downpatrick and makes little appeal.
