Lost his way over hurdles after winning at Uttoxeter in October but capable here as he showed when sluicing up over 2m at Chelmsford in August 2018. Lightly raced on the Flat and one to consider.
Won twice over fences since last seen on the level in May where he was sixth as a well-backed favourite over 1m6f at Lingfield. Had a break coming into this but likely well treated now on NH form.
Got off the mark at the 34th attempt when winning over 1m6f here two starts ago. Disappointing since at Wolverhampton and gets another very quick turnaround here.
Won over hurdles at Leicester just over a year ago, but shaped as if badly in need of the run when last of 8 on Flat return at Wolverhampton recently, and is likely to need this, too.
Still a maiden after 16 attempts and limitations are becoming plain to see. Finished a good way behind at Lingfield latest and again others make greater appeal.
19-race dual code maiden ran well here a few times in the past although recent efforts seen far more misses than hits. Capable of getting involved if on a going day.
Poor maiden who was again tailed off here latest after three lasts before that; no appeal.
