Form & Verdict
Multiple point winner and has won five over fences; 0-14 as a hurdler but ran well on his return to this discipline at Market Rasen (2m4f, soft), going down narrowly; the winner was well beaten back there last weekend but clearly a major player in this weak a race.

Multiple chase/point winner who easily capitalised upon good opportunity in weak novice hurdle at Stratford (2m6f, good) in August; faces tough task against some promising young rivals here, though.

Made the frame in his last two novice races (2m6f/2m5f) and was unlucky to come to grief at first flight on handicap debut here a week ago but he's 0-8 over hurdles now and almost certainly needs to improve.

Safely held in plating company on last month's handicap hurdle debut at Stratford (2m2f, good); 8lb lower here but needs significant improvement, and it's questionable whether today's stamina test will suit this former Flat-racer.

Displayed some ability at a modest level on the Flat but safely held on all four hurdling starts, most recently when remote third of five in 2m6f novice here last month; 8lb out of the weights for today's handicap debut and difficult to enthuse over.

Ex-Gordon Elliott; odds-on when successful over 2m2f at Market Rasen and beaten 17l (2m4f, good) and 18l (2m6f, heavy) in his two subsequent runs; was at least beaten by the right horses (both long odds-on) and probably has only Cheltenam De Vaige to beat.

Ex-Gordon Elliott; won a maiden at Market Rasen (2m2f) on second run for this yard and was runner-up behind odds-on rivals in next two starts; flopped when 4-9 at Stratford (2m6f) in August but he sets a fair standard on his best form and is a big player if he can bounce back on this drop back in trip; his win came on good ground but he's effective on soft/heavy.
