Form & Verdict
0-21 over hurdles but he failed by a whisker to score over C&D (good) five weeks ago; that form is backed up by the clock and today's softer ground should be no inconvenience; ought to be in the thick of things again.

J: Emma Smith-Chaston

T: Danny Brooke

Successful under Emma Smith-Chaston in conditional jockeys' event over C&D (soft) last time, finally opening his hurdles account and comfortably beating a subsequent scorer; rider can now use her 5lb claim, which virtually offsets a 6lb rise in the weights; big player.

Form & Verdict
Runner-up twice at favourite track Market Rasen in early part of this season and she was far from disgraced when 22l fourth of nine over this C&D (good to soft) four weeks ago; Conor Rabbitt, operating at impressive strike-rate in recent months, is a positive booking; high on the list.

Form & Verdict
Unbeaten in three races since wind surgery, asserting run-in to complete the hat-trick at Market Rasen (2m2f, good) six weeks ago; likely to encounter softer ground here and a further 6lb rise will demand another personal best, but she's thriving and impossible to rule out.

Her hat-trick came on right-handed tracks (all good ground) but she ran fine to be a 6l fourth on soft at left-handed Sedgefield; might be high in the weights now but Luke Scott returns with his 7lb claim, so that will help.
