A win and a second from two visits here last season and stable have hit form with a vengeance in the last fortnight. Has good record fresh and won't mind if the forecast rain arrives so plenty to recommend. Wind operation since last seen.
Made all at Exeter last season but then behind Enola Gay here and finished last season on a low when last seen in May. Has had wind operation since and capable of bouncing back for top yard.
Won on sole previous visit here in April. Shaped as though he was running better for a while until hampered and unseating at Exeter on latest so could play a part on best form.
Would have needed comeback run over hurdles last month and should strip fitter but three runs over fences have revealed little and others are preferred.
My well have won over further here last time but for a slow jump two out. Several placed efforts since last win 18 months ago and may now want further.
Two from three over fences when trained in France but showed little for Henry Oliver over hurdles last season and plenty to prove now switching back to fences for new yard.
Pair of wins at this trip last term and would have gone close on comeback run last month but for falling two out. Consistent type who should go well providing confidence hasn't been affected.
Fourth in this race last year but usually improves for a run and shaped well when second at Stratford last month. Should come on for that and any rain will be a plus.
Newbury second in March was standout run last season where he failed to build on a productive 17/18 campaign but even that run needs improving on and others make more appeal.
Mudlark who showed more on second run over fences at Fontwell last month. Likely to have more to come with few miles on the clock and significant rain would put him in the picture.
