Scored over fences on his penultimate start at Huntingdon (2m7½f). Was unable to follow it up last time at Uttoxeter (3m) as he was pulled up. Was rated higher than this mark over hurdles. Blinkers are on for the first time. Big player.
Prevailed for the second time over fences when he was successful at Worcester (2m7f) back in July. His form since then has been largely disappointing, including when he was fifth of seven at Ludlow (3m) last time. Has been eased 2lb. Can't discount.
Is still a maiden after nine races under Rules but has won three times in point-to-points. He was fourth of 11 runners at Uttoxeter (2m6½f) on his latest outing. Back up in trip here. Needs to improve.
Point-to-point winner who has yet to score under Rules. He produced his best performance so far last time at Wincanton (3m1f) when he was second of eight. Has gone up 2lb in the weights. One to consider.
Was successful twice over hurdles but has failed to finish on her two appearances over fences so far. Was travelling well last time at Taunton (2m5½f) before unseating her rider. Capable of more than she has shown to date in chasing.
His sole success over fences came over this C&D back in November 2017. Has only appeared four times since then. He was fifth of seven runners at Stratford (2m6½f) on his latest run. Has been eased 5lb and is up in trip. Others are preferred.
Is still a maiden after eight starts. He returned to action at Ludlow (3m) last time on his first run back since a wind-op. Is down 3lb in the weights. Looks to be off a workable mark now so he commands respect.
His last success was back in December at Southwell (3m1½f). His form this year as been below his best. He was 21L off the winner at Warwick (3m) on his latest start. Is now down 3lb now. Can't be ignored.
Broke his maiden at Huntingdon (2m7½f) back in April but has not followed it up since. Has failed to finish on his last three starts. Very capable off this this mark if he gets around the track this time.
A veteran who has won just once over fences, that came at Wincanton (3m1f) back in February 2017. Was pulled up on her latest outing at Exeter (3m). Hard to fancy on her most recent form.
