Off the mark over 2m4f at Worcester two starts ago and ran well since when second over 2m3f at Plumpton. Still has to prove that he stays 3m+ but certainly arrives as one of the more likely sorts here.
Won twice last winter but struggled after the turn of the year with revised marks and was pulled up on recent return to action. Mark slid back to only 2lb higher than last win but still represents a risk now moving up to fences.
Landed back-to-back 3m wins before finishing second latest dropping back to 2m4f at Perth. Clearly thriving at present and the step back up in trip makes him a leading player again.
Won three times consecutively at the back end of last year. His form this season has been patchy but signs of a revival at Worcester latest when fourth. Still, others appeal more here.
Long standing maiden showing signs of life belatedly over hurdles but could only plug on into midfield over fences latest. His name is an accurate reflection of today's best course of action.
Well over two years since his last win and although he ran respectably here last time he is ultimately again likely to find one or two too good.
Maiden clearly improved for move to this rapidly rising yard and his Market Rasen second and Warwick third the last twice put him firmly in the mix now.
Recorded his fourth career victory when winning by 12L over an extended 2m5f at Market Rasen (good) in June. Raised 9lb for that victory he weakened into third latest at Huntingdon and handicapper may be on top now.
Long standing maiden pulled up a long way out on return at Huntingdon and on all known form she's one of the least likely winners here.
Took a step forward from his seasonal reappearance run at Fontwell when finishing runner-up at Newton Abbot only to finish tailed off next at Plumpton. Others preferred.
