Former French raider who is set for his UK debut here. This will be his first start for his new yard and it is his return to action after over two years. Has won over 2m7½f but he will need to prove himself over this trip. Others appeal more.
His last success was around the Cross Country Course at Cheltenham (3m6f) in November 2017. He was second of six on his latest start at Ffos Las (3m4f) back in April. Has had a wind-op since and he is very capable. One to think about.
Was successful at Cartmel (3m1½f) two starts ago by 12L in a four runner field. Refused to race last time at Perth (3m). Has a good chance here on the evidence of his last win but his issues at the start are a concern.
Won the Sussex National at Plumpton (3m4½f) in January 2018. His latest appearance came at Sandown (3m) where he was second of 11 runners. Set for first outing of the season but he is one for the shortlist.
Scored twice at the back end of 2018, with his most recent success coming at Fontwell (3m2f). His latest appearance came over hurdles at Newton Abbot (3m2½f) where he was fourth of seven. Blinkers are on for the first time. One to consider.
Won this race last year in impressive fashion, prevailing by 9L after going off at 7/1. He was fourth of 13 on his last appearance at Uttoxeter (3m) back in April. Has had a wind-op since. Is 3lb higher than his success in 2018. Good chance again.
Was successful twice last season, including on his seasonal reappearance at Fontwell (3m2f). His last outing came in the Ayr Grand National (4m) where he was pulled up. Is down 4lb but more will be needed from this mark.
Has been running well over fences since switching yards earlier this year. She was successful at Newton Abbot (3m2f) three runs ago and has been second on her last two starts, her latest effort coming at Warwick (3m). Gone up just 3lb. Big player.
He has only featured four time over fences, with his sole chase success coming at Huntingdon (2m7½f). He was fourth of 11 last time at Cheltenham back in April (3m1½f). Has each-way claims off this mark.
Has had three attempts over fences without success so far. He ran well two starts ago when he was second of five here (3m2½f). Was a long way off the winner when he was third of five on his latest effort at Newton Abbot (3m2f). Others appeal more.
