Consistent sort who's won three times this AW season and climbed a stone up the weights; only 1lb higher than for his latest win and threatens to stay this longer trip, so on the shortlist again.

Only a neck behind Uncle Alastair when second in soft-ground course bumper in February but his old rival was seemingly below his previous form that day, and this gelding was well beaten when third at Hexham on his latest outing in March; hurdle debut today.

Won heavy-ground Ayr bumper on debut in November but both subsequent runs in that sphere were disappointing, the latter when beaten about 43l in first-time hood in April; hurdle debut today.

Third or fourth on each of his four starts in Irish maiden points, but beaten 11l or more each time, and others are more compelling as he makes his rules debut; bought for £10,000 in October.

Lightly raced 7yo who has had an interrupted career; returned from another break with front-running second at Sedgefield (2m1f, good to soft) in November, when last seen, and a strong candidate today if reproducing that form; attractive pedigree suggests he'll stay this new trip.

Well suited by plenty of give, winning on heavy at Salisbury (1m2f) in the spring and then making all to score by a wide margin in a seller in very soft ground at Goodwood (1m3f) last time; more to do on the figures here but in-form and will like the ground, so has to be respected.
