Form & Verdict
Built up fairly encouraging stable debut when winning from off the pace at Catterick (2m3f, soft) in November but was pulled up over same C&D in December and it's hard to tell whether he'll be in the right mood here.

Form & Verdict
No match for progressive rival when second on seasonal debut at Southwell (2m, good) in January but that still goes down as a good effort, and he's now back on the same mark as when winning at Catterick (1m7f, good to soft) last term; major player.

Has set or equalled peak RPRs over both hurdles and fences in 2m4f Perth contests latterly, albeit his C&D chase second off this mark in July (good) featured jumping errors and a refusal to settle; weighted to reverse Cartmel form with A Different Kind, though 0-16 record is offputting.

0-5 over hurdles and 0-15 overall but recent efforts over fences have been perfectly respectable, and he matched his best RPR (124) when second here (2m4f, good) last month; won't mind if there's rain about and has good chance at the weights on this return to hurdling.

Enjoys this ground and comes here on the back of a comfortable success at Haydock (2m, heavy), albeit against only three opponents and his market rival ran below par; 7lb rise sees him on a career-high mark but he should give his running.

Form & Verdict
1-10 over hurdles; ought to have coped with the heavy ground when beaten 37l at Kelso in January and may find today's conditions quicker than ideal but ran big race in defeat here (2m, good to soft) on seasonal debut in December and could have a say if she takes well to fences.

Form & Verdict
0-9 over fences; third three consecutive times on slow ground this winter, the last twice in C&D events won by Netywell and Lake Takapuna, but was a disappointing favourite when last in action and today's forecast good ground may not be in his favour.
