Scored over this C&D in July 2018. His latest success came back in July back at Ludlow (2m4f) where he prevailed by 15L in a five runner field. His form so far this season has been poor, including latest at Worcester (2m7f) so others are preferred.
Broke his maiden over fences at Carlisle (2m) last October but has been unable to follow it up since then. He has failed to finish in his last three outings, including at Perth (2m4f) on his most recent appearance. Needs to improve on recent form.
A C&D winner who is on for a hat-trick bid here following back-to-back successes at Newton Abbot over 2m5f. He stayed on well in his last contest to suggest there is more to come. Up 7lb in the weights. Big player again.
A three-time winner over hurdles but he is still looking for his opening victory over fences. He has finished second on his last two starts, including latest at Uttoxeter (2m4f) in a seven runner contest. Each-way claims.
Won at this course over hurdles but is 0-7 since going chasing. He produced his best effort to date last time when he was second of six at Uttoxeter (2m4f). Has gone up 4lb in the weights. Can't discount.
Scored by 4L at this track over 2m3f two runs ago. Was unable to follow it up over this C&D last time as he was sixth of nine runners. Remains off the same mark so he will need to find more here but he has had a wind-op since his latest effort.
Has been successful twice in his last four starts. He almost added to his tally on his most recent appearance as he was second of seven runners at Southwell (2m4½f), beaten by just a neck. Gone up 3lb but is one to think about.
A winner over hurdles last October. Went close to his opening success over fences on just his second start last time when he was second of eight at Worcester (2m4f), beaten by a head. Gone up 5lb but he remains a strong contender.
Recorded back-to-back wins over fences in 2018 but since those successes, his form has declined. He was pulled up last time at Lingfield (2m7½f). Dropping down in trip here but others make more of an appeal.
Made a promising debut over fences last time when she was second of five runners at Uttoxeter (2m4f), finishing 5L off the winner. Remains off the same mark here so she has to be respected on her latest appearance.
Has made an excellent start to his career. He was successful at Ffos Las (2m) and then Newton Abbot (2m½f) respectively on his opening two starts. Came home second of five last time at Newton Abbot (2m½f). One to consider.
On a hat-trick bid following wins at this course (3m) and Hexham (3m) respectively. His latest success was by 4L. Has now gone up 8lb in the weights and drops down to a shorter distance. Can't ignore.
Was in good form at the back of 2018 where she recorded three wins. She has struggled in 2019, including on her latest appearance at Uttoxeter as she was pulled up in a six runner field over 2m4f. Others appeal more.
