Remains a maiden after seven appearances on the track, however, he produced his best effort to date last time at Uttoxeter (2m7½f) as he was second of nine, beaten by just a head. Set for his debut over fences here. Is worth consideration.
Delivered some encouraging performances over hurdles without success. He was fourth of nine on his opening appearance over fences last time at Southwell (3m). Should build upon that here. One for the shortlist.
Scored over hurdles on his penultimate start at Bangor (2m7f). Made his chase debut at Uttoxeter (2m6½f) last time where he could only finish sixth of eight. Will need to produce more this time over fences.
Was a winner over fences on just his second chase start at Bangor (3m). Has been unable to follow it up in two appearances since. He was pulled up on his latest attempt at Wincanton (3m1f). Has been eased 2lb. Needs to bounce back.
Has been in good form over hurdles since switching yards earlier this year. He scored at Fontwell (3m2f) two runs ago and then finished second of eight over that same C&D. Set for his chase debut here. One to consider.
Prevailed on his debut under Rules at Uttoxeter (2m7½f) in a four runner novice hurdle contest. Has progressively got worse since then. He unseated his rider last time at Chepstow (2m7½f) over fences. Others make more of an appeal.
Scored for the first time on his penultimate start at Carlisle (2m3½f) where he justified going off as the 2/1 favourite. Was second of eight last time at Master Rasen (2m7f). Likely to enjoy jumping fences. Big player.
Remains a maiden after 11 starts. He did hit the frame on his last two appearances over hurdles. Will wear a tongue-tie for the first time here. Worth consideration, despite this being his first look at fences on the track.
