Won her fourth contest over hurdles when landing a Cartmel 2m6f good ground handicap off a 6lb lower mark in May. Won on the Flat at Pontefract over 2m2f in June and may be capable of better still on return to action here.
Course winner that has also won over this trip. Got back to winning ways over hurdles when landing a Sedgefield four runner contest last month over 3m3f off a 5lb lower mark. Can go well once again.
Won a third career hurdle contest when winning a Carlisle 2m3½f handicap off a 5lb lower mark on good to soft ground when last seen for connections in February. One for the shortlist in this company.
Solid, tough and consistent sort who has improved 9lb since finishing second of ten at Cartmel in July. Can continue the good form of his summer jumping campaign in this contest.
Early season promise of last term appeared to level out somewhat in a couple of dismal efforts over hurdles when last seen in March. Goes well at Haydock and may need this run on seasonal debut.
Useful 145-rated handicap chaser who will be having his first start for 12 months in this contest. Second of three beaten 2½L on his penultimate start at this meeting last year. Worth a market check as post time approaches.
Winner at this venue that has also won over this trip. Mixed signals in a number of starts over hurdles and the larger obstacles in a five-race summer jumping campaign. Plenty to prove.
Ran with credit on first start for 110 days, finishing second of eight in a Warwick 2m5f novice hurdle last month beaten ½L. Entitled to have designs on prize money stepping up in trip.
Tough and genuine sort who has been running well in a number of handicap and novice hurdle starts over the summer. Holding form well and merits plenty of respect for leading trainer/jockey combination.
Boasts two wins and two places from 10 starts over C&D. Well held over the combination in April and needs others to run below par to have a chance in this.
