Chasing newcomer who scored on his second handicap hurdles start although he just managed to hold on at the death (2m3f). Ran respectably in handicaps after that at up to 2m4f; ought to make an impression in this company based on his hurdles form.
Fair chaser although his form of late has been on the downturn showing little sign of a return to form; yet to win over fences (0-5). Tongue-tie goes on for the first-time; well handicapped on his old form in what is a weak event.
Course winner over 2m1f who has flattered to deceive on more than one occasion (often travels like the best horse in the race); posted an all too familiar effort on his stable debut. Still on a good mark but overall record makes him vulnerable.
Offered little when he was trained in Ireland in a couple of different yards finishing well held over hurdles. Might have needed the run on his only start so far for this yard early this month; now goes handicapping/chasing for the first time.
Fair sort on the Flat despite only winning once but doesn't really appear to have transferred much of that ability to his exploits over hurdles (ran poorly last time). Only makes very limited appeal now he's switched to fences for the first time.
Career maiden (0-28) who produced one of his better efforts when last seen in May over 3m in a Southwell handicap hurdle. Nothing to get too excited in that performance though; now switched to fences, little to enthuse over.
Very little form in point-to-points or over hurdles under Rules finishing well held in handicaps in that sphere in his last two starts. Now switches to fences from 4lb out of the handicap; hard to make a case.
Being 10lb out of the weights is the first hurdle that he has to conquer and when a career record of 0-20 is added to the equation he becomes an unappealing proposition. Unlikely to make it seventh time lucky over fences given those facts.
Recorded his only win here over hurdles but with a chase record that reads 0-76 he's impossible to make a case for especially from 18lb out of the handicap. Would require a miracle to record his second win of his career.
