11-race maiden but his two seconds at Plumpton last season off similar marks would give him legitimate claims here. Below that form the last twice however and tough ask first time back under top-weight.
Only won twice in 34 races for Thomas Cooper in Ireland with those wins coming back-to-back in 2017. Seemed regressive last term so plenty to prove on stable debut.
Gained first success for this yard (second overall) when winning at Perth in July and with a 6lb rise latest he only found one too strong at Cartmel. Certainly bring some of the most persuasive form here so will go well barring heavy rain.
Closing on three years since his lone win in a Chepstow maiden hurdle. Fair third over fences when last seen but that was some 19 months ago so has plenty of question marks here.
C&D novices handicap winner two starts back before finishing second off a 3lb higher mark at Fontwell subsequently. Stable first string on jockey bookings and win here rates her as a leading contender.
Four-time winner under rules finished strongly for second over 2m½f at Bangor when last seen on soft ground. Not won over 2m4f but does stay it and comes here as a leading player.
Arguably a shade disappointing since winning at Ffos Las in June over this trip but handicap has fallen to mark just 2lb higher now and with the champion jockey aboard he's not one to take lightly.
Maiden after 14 starts and for all this yard is renowned for transforming new recruits fortunes he ran poorly first time for the team at Uttoxeter so is hard to fancy here.
11 races and months passed since his lone hurdles score at Catterick last season. Well handicapped on best form but well below that the last twice so high risk at present.
Transformed by first-time blinkers latest as he finished a fine second at Carlisle after two rather dismal efforts before that. Respected here in same headgear if taking his chance (also Declared at Ludlow on Wednesday).
Handicap debutant failed to get remotely competitive in two bumpers and three maiden hurdles so can only be watched here.
A winner on the AW on the Flat but has been a long way down the field on his four hurdles starts. Pulled up latest on stable debut so one to avoid here.
Attracted support and showed improved form when getting off the mark at Warwick in May 2018 over 3m1f. Disappointing after however and ended last term with a fall and a pulled up so rates a risky proposition now.
Some promise in her third at Stratford in July which was well boosted by the second winning three times afterwards but not quite able to get competitive since at Newton Abbot and Plumpton. Perhaps longer trip here will help.
