Triple course winner, including over C&D (heavy) last December. 2lb higher than his most recent success, at Bangor in March. Bit to prove after he pulled up here on his reappearance, but claims from this mark if bouncing back.
20-race maiden. Can be given a chance from this mark on several efforts earlier this year, but her failure to convert any of those good runs into success has to be a concern.
Almost two years to the day since his only win over hurdles. 0-12 over fences, and hard to fancy from this mark now switching back to the bigger obstacles, based on recent runs in this sphere. Heavy ground also a concern.
1-10 over fences, having scored at Chepstow (3m2f, good) in April, when 7lb lower. Arrives in good form, and acts on heavy, but his latest 2lb upward nudge by the assessor might mean he finds one or two too good.
Former Nigel Twiston-Davies inmate who is 0-4 for this trainer and needs to make significant improvement for the fitting of blinkers if he is to win this.
Point winner who showed little under rules until being just held over hurdles at Plumpton (3m1f, soft) last time, from today's mark. Has been disappointing on both previous chase runs, so now needs to convert that form back to this sphere.
1-29 over fences, and despite a couple of good efforts from earlier in the year that suggest she might get competitive, another win in this field would appear unlikely.
