Recorded a run of four victories in 2017 but has not prevailed since. This will be his first outing since coming home at the rear of seven runners at Kelso in September 2018. Best to watch on his return to action.
Is a maiden after 12 starts, however, he did show signs at the beginning of last season that he was capable over fences. He was sixth of 10 on his last outing at Carlisle (3m2f) back in February. First run back since a wind-op. Worth respecting.
Very capable chaser who picked up the 11th win of his career over fences at Hexham (1m7½f) on his penultimate start. Was fifth of eight on his return to action over that same C&D last time. Has each-way claims here.
Scored for the first time back in the summer at Perth over 3m. His two efforts since then have been disappointing, including when he unseated his rider at the first fence last time at Kelso (2m7½f). Others appeal more.
His sole success so far came at Newcastle (2m½f) in April 2018. Has finished second twice at Hexham this year but was disappointing there last time over 1m7½f when he was seventh of nine. Can't discount from latest mark.
Has been successful twice over fences. She has run well in her two starts since switching yards, including latest when she was second of nine at Fontwell (3m2f). Back down in trip now where she remains capable off this mark.
Broke his maiden at Bangor (2m4½f) last time out where he stayed on well in the closing stages to get up by 1¾L. Has gone up 3lb for his success, however, he has a good chance of following up here.
A winner over hurdles at Worcester (2m) but is still looking for his opening chase success. He was prominent last time at Warwick (2m4f) before making a mistake at the penultimate fence, eventually finishing fifth. Down 5lb. Others are preferred.
Experienced chaser who produced his best run for a while on his latest appearance when he was third of eight at Hexham (1m7½f). Stepping back up in trip now. One to think about off this mark.
