All four career wins have been at Hexham, the most recent on soft going in October. Still on a competitive mark, but whether he can produce it away from the Northumberland venue remains to be seen.
Took the race by the scruff of the neck when scoring at Perth (2m4f, good to soft) in September, but then held here over C&D when last seen. Trip and ground should suit, but bit to prove now.
Well treated on his best efforts, but getting long in the tooth and has been below par on both starts this season. Not ground dependent, but more needed.
On the same mark as when scoring at Carlisle (3m, heavy) in December 2018. Jumping hasn't been up to scratch just lately, but amid all that there still looks to be some ability there. Not written off.
Triple course-winning veteran stayer who went close over 4m at Hexham (heavy) in November, though was some way short of that level back there (3m) last time. Needs to bounce back.
Lightly-raced and showed improved form when scoring on handicap/chase debut at Carlisle (2m, heavy). Up 6lb for this, but pedigree suggests he should get this trip and he looks a potential improver.
Finally off the mark at the 19th time of asking at Hexham (3m, heavy) last month. Has to be respected after that, but he looks worth taking on given that sparse win record.
Not a bad effort on debut when fourth over C&D on good to soft back in October. Recently withdrawn due to soft ground, so remains to be seen if he can be effective in these conditions. Cheekpieces go on.
