Travelled strongly throughout when hammering his market rival in a 2m4f novice hurdle at Bangor, with the runner-up chasing a four-timer for Gordon Elliott; however, it wasn't going to be pretty even if he stood up at Uttoxeter (when priced at 1-16) as although he would have won it wasn't his first mistake and he was only a length ahead; still respected.

Only just failed to get up in an Irish point on yielding ground in May and then fetched £55,000; interesting he kicked off under rules in a good bumper at Cheltenham (12-1) and ran well to a point before weakening into mid division; likely contender here.

Failed to build on bumper debut success but back on track at the first time of asking over hurdles with front-running win at Chepstow (2m, good) last month; turned over at short odds at Ascot since (2m again) but shapes as if this longer trip will suit and remains open to progress for top yard.

Lightly raced 7yo who showed best form so far when midfield at Hereford on second start over hurdles and when returning from a year off last time; plenty more needed upped in trip here.

Beaten about 19l when fourth on debut at Uttoxeter (soft; hooded) in December but the form worked out well (winner went very close in Grade 1 novice hurdle at Cheltenham Festival); could have a say.

Promising debut second in a soft-ground Kempton bumper in March but he faded to be tailed off when upped to 2m3f on hurdling debut last month at Chepstow; drop back to 2m may help but others preferred.

Did not win last year but usually ran well from off the pace, especially switched to blinkers on last two starts at Newmarket over 2m2f; disappointing when 9-1 for Chester Cup on return; that track isn't for every horse but he also ran poorly on sole visit here (last July) and this trip now looks too short.

Out of form when last seen on the Flat but was a dual winner at around 1m4f in that sphere; runner-up when tried on soft ground so conditions should be fine and makes hurdles debut at a very modest level; any market support would be worth noting.
