Fallen to mark 3lb below last win in 10-race near two year losing run. Fifth on return at Ffos Las a satisfactory effort and he should come forward for it. Not the most compelling case but is capable.
Won three times last season from 2m4f to 3m2f. Ran out of steam on return over 3m on heavy at Cheltenham but in this easier contest and with fitness now likely boosted he could resume last season's progress.
Newcastle win last season took record at the time to 4-9 but flopped twice subsequently. Unproven beyond 2m (one previous try) but probably will stay and certainly revels in these sort on conditions. Stable's slow start to the season is a concern.
Won well at Ludlow (2m5f) and Hereford (2m5½f) before coming unstuck in Sandown Grade Two and Cheltenham Listed race at the end of her novice campaign. Handicap/season debut today but unproven on heavy ground.
Kept really good company in winless campaign last season but in calmer waters last time he showed his ability when hacking up at 4/7 in a Fakenham novice hurdle. Sure he has more to come now handicapping and could easily be well in here.
Former French trained gelding made a winning start over hurdles at Uttoxeter last season but struggled thereafter and especially when sent handicapping. Little impression on return at Wetherby so still has a bit to prove.
