Justified favouritism with a swift turn of foot at Chelmsford (1m6f) last week; 5lb penalty negated by the 7lb claimer Jacob Clark; unexposed as a stayer; major chance.
Won twice on the Flat during September (1m6f-2m), rising in the weights a combined total of 8lb; switches to the AW following a recent spin over hurdles at Fontwell.
Veteran; twice placed over C&D in recent months, albeit was beaten 5L by Casa Comigo in September; clearly others are open to more improvement.
20-1 winner of a 2m handicap hurdle at Plumpton (for Brendan Powell) in September 2018; best watched off a 411-day absence on debut for Louise Allan.
C&D winner (also runner-up on her last visit to this track in June); demonstrated that she's fit and well with a keeping on 50-1 third over hurdles at Taunton (2m+) a fortnight ago; each-way possibilities.
15-race maiden; 1lb lower than when finishing 6L third to Star of Athena at Wolverhampton (1m6f) three weeks ago; stable going reasonably well of late.
Below-par when returning from a break latest; 4lb higher than when beating Bird For Life by 1¾L at Kempton (2m) in June; stablemate of Percy's Prince.
Now rated 9lb lower than when finishing second to True Destiny over C&D 12 months ago; all downhill since in terms of form; may strip fitter for his recent comeback run but largely unappealing.
With Sir Mark Prescott when beating Nordano by a neck at Kempton (2m) in September; has knocked at the door since, including on recent stable debut (cost 12,000gns); one to consider; stablemate of Thresholdofadream.
Newcastle novice winner (1m) for William Haggas last November; precious few positives to take from her form throughout 2019; stable appear to be clutching at straws by trying this 2m trip; unlikely.
Hasn't shown that she possesses a great deal of ability (0-6) and continues to ease in the weights to a basement mark of 46.
26-race maiden; made the frame at odds of 40-1 at Bath (1m5f, firm) on her penultimate start but that's an outlier on her CV; considered unlikely; look elsewhere.
