Winner of his third and fourth career victories in a couple of sellers in the space of two days earlier this month at Fakenham and at this venue over 2m½f. Major player once again in this company.
Winner of his second hurdle win came over C&D last month in a similar contest off a 8lb lower mark. The yard boast a 33% strike rate round here in October/November in the last three years.
13-race maiden and well beaten on final three outings for Charlie Longsdon this spring. Hasn't looked a winner in waiting in three starts for current connections including when last seen 12 months ago at Chepstow.
Earlier promise appears to have leveled out in a couple of recent efforts at Plumpton and at Fontwell earlier this month. Others look to hold stronger claims.
Eight-race maiden including six defeat over hurdles. Last of seven beaten 29L at Haydock on soft ground when last seen in March on his final start for trainer Oliver Greenall. Faces a tough ask on stable debut.
His best effort over hurdles at this venue in June appears to be something of a one-off following a number of dismal efforts on the Flat and over hurdles since August. Has 13L to make up on Ballyellis on the balance of their meeting last month.
Miserly career return of one win from 40 starts mainly on the AW and 24 Flat starts on turf. Fell on sole start over hurdles and looks up against it in this company.
Has failed to build on a maiden hurdle win at Exeter in May with a number of disappointing starts in handicap company since. First time blinkers unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
Sent off at big prices in a number of starts since her debut last December before running accordingly on each occasion and is unlikely to be making a significant impact in this contest.
