Scored twice already this season (both for Iain Jardine), including here over 2m5f (soft). Changed hands for £5,500 since then. Drops in trip for stable debut, but will need to pull out more to defy this mark.
Has won twice for this trainer on soft ground at Newcastle, firstly over 2m4f, before dropping back in trip to do so over 2m. Clearly back in good heart, and nicely treated on some old form. Claims.
Former Nicky Henderson inmate who lost form for that top trainer and has been well held in four runs for this one. Drops in class this time and the break may help to reinvigorate some enthusiasm, but makes little appeal on recent efforts.
Scored over hurdles in 2017, but lost his way in 2018 and not seen for over a year. Has had wind surgery in the interim, but would only be of interest if market vibes are strong.
Started well enough in handicap company at Musselburgh last year (2m4f, good), but perhaps didn't handle slower ground as well in her two runs so far this season. That doesn't augur well, unless wind surgery makes a significant difference.
Prominent racer who has yet to win over hurdles, but made the frame twice in succession at Newcastle last month (third behind Starplex). Cheekpieces go on. More needed, but certainly can't rule her out.
Hadn't shown much in handicap company until a better effort when not far behind Calliope at Newcastle (2m, soft) last time. Cut step up on that now, and another who is not written off here.
Sole win came when trained in Ireland in 2015. Veteran who has been off for 831 days and although in good hands, it would be a surprise if he is able to come back successfully.
