The one they all have to beat. Really got his act together of late, with two wins from his last four completed starts. Does have his own ideas about the game, as shown when he nearly got caught when idling in front over C&D last time.
Beaten a neck by Noble Glance at Fontwell (2m5f; good to firm) on his return to hurdles last time out. In good form before that though, and should reverse the form as he steps into handicap company over hurdles for the first time.
Better known as a chaser, and he is 0-7 over the smaller obstacles with his most recent defeat coming last time out in a match at Stratford (2m6f; good). Still a fair way clear of most in this line-up and will be thereabouts.
Got no further than the first when he was brought down over 2m here on his first run under rules since March 2016. Now steps up markedly in trip, but record under rules is completely off-putting. Look elsewhere for more viable alternatives.
Winning pointer who is making his rules debut for yard who are 0-6 so far this season. Cost £10,000 at the Doncaster May 2019 sale and is related to hurdle/chase winners, but watching brief advised.
Sprung 33-1 shock when successful at Fontwell (2m5f; good to firm) last month in what was a weak race. Needs to prove that wasn't a fluke, and the bare form of that victory is nowhere near good enough.
