Form & Verdict
Won Southwell bumper on rules debut in April and easily justified short odds when switched to hurdling at Worcester (2m, good) last month; encounters tougher opposition here and is penalised this time but it's very hard to gauge the limit of his ability.

Useful Flat-racer who travelled well before asserting on recent stable/hurdle debut at Newcastle (2m, good); now has penalty to carry but ought to progress from that winning performance.

Dual bumper winner (once here) last season and placed on last month's hurdling debut at Uttoxeter (2m, good); still has potential, but his run at Wetherby (2m3f, good to soft) last time was disappointing and others in this line-up have stronger claims.

Fairly useful in bumpers last term, winning twice on good ground and midfield in Aintree Grade 2; has not transferred that form to hurdling in two attempts, well beaten over 2m3f here latest; revival needed.

Form & Verdict
Useful on the Flat in his prime and ran to fairly useful level when second in two C&D novice hurdles for John Mackie in 2018-19 season; some way below best Flat form this year, though, and best watched on first hurdling start since he was pulled up here in 2020.

0-14 since landing a soft/heavy-ground hat-trick in autumn 2020; a grand campaigner in his time, not the force of old in the last 18 months but he did stay on into fifth of 23 in this race (soft) last term and is now 8lb lower, despite being 7lb out of the handicap; had a similarly unimpressive prep race over 1m2f last year, so an each-way case can be made.

Form & Verdict
Irish raider who has been placed in two maiden hurdles this autumn, more recently when third of 25 at Naas (2m, yielding to soft) a fortnight ago; should be okay on the faster ground here and has a major role to play.
