Form & Verdict
In good form this year, getting off the mark in mares' novice handicap at Carlisle by 15l last month (2m1f, soft); ran a sound race off a 21lb higher mark when fifth in a stronger race over this trip at Musselburgh last time (soft); 4lb lower here and an interesting contender.

Bumper winner; initially disappointing over hurdles this season but has improved since switched to handicaps; drew clear to win comfortably by 17l at Hexham (2m, heavy) on Thursday and needs to be taken very seriously under 7lb penalty here.

Dug deep to win off much-reduced mark at Hexham (2m4f, heavy) in December and remains well handicapped on older form but he never really got involved here (2m7f) last month and has become unreliable.

Not the most reliable these days but was under 5l away in a C&D handicap three weeks ago when a stone out of the weights (behind Masked Crusader); remains to be seen if that flattered him and he's off the same mark here.

0-5 in Irish points and seven defeats over hurdles there included three handicaps; however, the signs were more encouraging when beaten 14l in a 2m1f handicap at Sedgefield on November's debut for this yard, keeping on after getting outpaced; this track could be more to his liking.
