Dual hurdle winner who has won two of his four chase starts including over C&D (heavy) last Tuesday; this is tougher under a penalty but he showed plenty of determination last time and should have more to offer in this sphere; respected.

Form & Verdict
Comfortable 20-1 winner of a ten-runner novice handicap at Ludlow (2m, soft) where he came from off the pace despite jumping out to the left at times; the Bangor race a week later when penalised no doubt came too soon; 10lb higher than Ludlow but he's lightly raced; likely contender provided he stays.

Displayed significant improvement to open account in Ludlow chase (2m, soft) in February and bounced back from a lesser effort when second over fences here (2m3f, heavy) last month; not an easy one to predict on this return to hurdling but has the ability to feature.

Form & Verdict
Bumper winner who made the frame in handicap hurdles off marginally higher marks; bred to make a chaser and it was a respectable first attempt at Hereford (soft) when shaping as though 2m was too sharp now; respected.

Form & Verdict
Lightly raced hurdler and, following a wind operation, she was a 13l third over 3m at Exeter on chase debut; ended up tailed off back over the same C&D last week but was running well until a late mistake and then eased; not ruled out with assured stamina an asset here.

Pulled up over hurdles when 100-1 for stable debut in November but, following a wind op, fared considerably better when third over C&D (soft) on last month's chasing debut; 2lb lower today and a major player if the first-time cheekpieces have any positive effect.
