Reverts back to hurdling after proving successful over fences at Huntingdon back in May, and ran to that level at Stratford three weeks ago. Worry is the form of the yard, who are struggling for winners at present, but chance there to see.
Made hay last autumn, rattling off a hat-trick of wins and looks fairly treated on that. In no great form on the Flat but does have a C&D win to his name, and not inconceivable he could bounce back tonight.
Runner-up on last two starts and would have won in another couple of strides at Bangor in August, but the worry is that he's usually beatable and he will need to pull out a bit more. This trip suits though, so has chances.
Just got the better of Prince Khurram at Bangor two starts ago but couldn't follow that up and in truth, ran a little below par. Generally consistent though, so can be expected to leave that behind, and has his conditions tonight.
Ran to form at Sedgefield last week when third in a lesser race than this but just two wins in 35 starts shows the problem. Others make more appeal.
