Useful over both hurdles and fences and put in a good performance when third in 3m handicap chase at Kempton last month. Carries top weight but holds solid claims.
Multiple winner in the point-to-point sphere, including 3m hunter chases here in the spring. Pulled up on latest start but has the scope to perform with credit in this company.
Fair hurdler. Mad encouraging chase debut at Fontwell (3m2f) before unsuited by drop in trip at Wincanton last time. Claims back up to this distance.
Showed some fair form over hurdles for previous yard and shaped encouragingly on chase debut at Southwell (3m) before weakening into third. Place claims if improving on that.
C&D winner in the past but lost his way over fences last season. Looked to be booked for the places before falling at the last at Stratford last time out but still looks hard to judge.
Fair hurdler who has looked a promising sort over fences recently and stepped up markedly to take second at Huntingdon last time out. Further improvement expected.
Point winner but hasn't transcended that form into this sphere. Down the field on handicap bow at Chepstow recently and offers very little appeal.
Winner on chase debut at Huntingdon in January and bounced back to form with second at Bangor last month. Has the scope to build on that effort so considered.
Consistent sort who was rewarded for that with success at Wincanton on penultimate start. Hit the frame at Ludlow last time out when hanging badly and could be booked for minor honours again.
Looked to be out of sorts but took advantage of reduced mark to win at Chepstow a week ago. Quick turnaround not ideal but claims if replicating that level of form.
Looked to be in the doldrums before scoring at Newton Abbott a couple of months ago. Hit hard by the handicapper subsequently so career-best will be required.
Still a maiden but hits the frame regularly but was well beaten third at Fontwell on seasonal debut. Should come on for that and looks nicely weighted too. Considered.
Looked to be out of his depth under rules but left that behind him when runner-up at Ffos Las in the spring. Not as good next time out and may be in need of this run.
