The negatives for BROKEN QUEST are that he is having his third run in three weeks and is switched to a much stiffer track than he's tackled the last twice but he did win in fine style at Kempton last week and is 11lb ahead of the game under a penalty. Herewego Herewego is moving in the right direction for his in-form yard and is unlikely to be a pushover for the favourite but the others look less convincing, with Snapdragon Fire preferred of them.[Emily Weber]

Very lightly raced but found a good opportunity when winning at Warwick and did better in defeat when chasing home a promising one under a penalty at Market Rasen (2m4f, soft); can continue to improve and due to race off 12lb higher in future but has a progressive rival to overcome.

Shown promise in bumper company and over hurdles but didn't have the stamina to cope with 3m on his handicap debut at Ludlow last time; return to this trip should suit but will find easier handicaps in the future.

Acts well on soft and has been in decent form at 2m4f and 2m but took a hit in the weights for his good second on handicap debut at Hereford and no longer looks particularly well treated.

Maiden on Flat (had a few goes off modest marks in handicaps) but taken well to hurdles and ran respectably over 2m3f at Huntingdon last time; this is a tough start to his handicap career.

Point winner last spring but hasn't achieved much over hurdles so far, including under similar conditions on handicap debut at Fontwell last month; enough to prove.
