Form & Verdict
Left his first two handicap runs miles behind when going close in big field at Exeter (2m5f, good to soft) in November; only 2lb higher here but he flopped when prominent in the market at Uttoxeter (2m4f, heavy) in January and has something to prove again after another break; tongue-tie added.

Form & Verdict
Irish point winner who won a Musselburgh handicap (2m4f, soft) in February and he had a tough assignment behind a highly progressive dual subsequent winner at Sedgefield (fourth of ten) last month; still has potential after only five hurdle runs and he could kick on again here.

Flat/hurdling maiden; looks hard to predict, but a repeat of his second at Huntingdon (2m3f, soft) in February wouldn't see him far away and conditions were very tiring at Fontwell (heavy) last time; cheekpieces added and he's no forlorn hope.
