Form & Verdict
Ran well in some big-field handicap hurdles last season, with best effort arguably his fifth of 18 at Punchestown (2m7f, yielding) in December; well beaten when switched to fences at Kilbeggan last month but it would be foolish to write off his chasing career after that.

Won three-runner handicap chase at Perth last May on final start for Gordon Elliott; some fair runs in defeat for this stable, and looked in good shape when third in last week's Ulster National; first time over this course.

Form & Verdict
0-12 over fences when trained in Ireland and not seen under rules since heavy defeat over hurdles for Stuart Crawford in November, but has won two open points for new stable this spring and it will be interesting to see how well he copes here.

Not the force of old; won two open points in March/April but has fared less well since returning to handicap chases; others stronger.

Form & Verdict
Eight-race maiden; certainly not disgraced when third of five at Hexham (2m4f, good to soft) this month but was beaten about 35l in the end and is again a long way out of the handicap here.

Fair effort when third in a 2m4f novice chase on this card last season (2m4f, good to soft); hasn't shown anything this year (ran out on second occasion); plenty to prove.

Form & Verdict
Unseated rider at first fence on chasing debut in December but ended last season in very good form over hurdles, notably when winning easily by 11l at Plumpton (2m4f, soft); moves up in trip for this second chasing attempt; effective on good to soft ground but untested on anything quicker; could still have a good future over fences.

Dual hurdle winner who is 0-7 over fences; again he travelled well for a long way last time at Exeter (3m6f, heavy) but ultimately came up shy behind a 6l winner with only one other completing; others might just see this out stronger.
