Won over a half furlong shorter at Stratford in June and remains 6lb higher. Ran to a similar level when fourth at Newton Abbot in July. Suited by good ground and although he's a touch high in the handicap, he's likely to make a bold bid.
Let down by his jumping over fences last start and reverts back to the smaller obstacles. 7lb higher than last winning mark but ran well well in a strong contest at Market Rasen in July and is still open to improvement.
Wincanton winner on his season reappearance but below that subsequently at Sandown and then let down by his jumping and swerved alarmingly late when a disappointing favourite at Worcester last time. Cheekpieces need to have an effect.
Racked up a sequence of good performances last summer but form has been inconsistent since. Suited by this likely better ground but needs to leave a poor effort at Chepstow well behind. Others preferred.
Progressive form in six starts over hurdles so far and gained a second career win over 2m1.5f here last month. Tactically versatile and won as though he has more to offer up in trip. Up 7lb and in grade but rates an improving type.
Lightly raced over the last couple of years and benefited for his return when fifth of 10 at Uttoxeter in June. Dropped another 3lb and falling to a very attractive mark. More needed again in this tougher company but not ruled out.
