2 x Distance Winner - Won 2 times before at this distance
Much happier since reverting to hurdles, winning with plenty in hand last time out. Six pounds higher here but that victory was worth every ounce of that. Others are less exposed but with conditions to suit, he needs each way respect.
Class act who didn't take to fences and was quite impressive at Uttoxeter last time.

Travelled well for a long way on his return to action over a longer trip, tiring from the home turn. This trip is more suitable for him with some smart form as a novice. Any drying of the ground a help, interesting at a big price.
Weakened tamely before pulling up on belated reappearance in 2m7f Sandown handicap hurdle.

Not the force he once was, shaping fairly when a comfortably seen off second last time. Has a win and two places in four visits to this track but has not won since landing this contest in 2017 from eight pounds lower. Others preferred.
Back to form when chasing home a front-running Taunton specialist four weeks ago.

A faller in both of her starts this season, it remains to be seen how that affects her confidence. She won over shorter here last March and is only three pounds higher so not badly treated but she's left alone until she shows the tumbles have not left their mark.
Could do with a confidence boost after two falls but she was smart last season.

At his best over hurdles when the mud is flying, taking full advantage of a drop in grade on Boxing Day. Connections fit first-time blinkers, up six pounds and into a deeper race once more, with stamina to prove at this trip.
Back to winning ways down in grade at Fontwell; up 6lb for this; now goes in blinkers.

Bolted up over slightly further here in December, hit hard by the handicapper for that. Ran as well as could've been expected last time but he has not looked overly convincing under pressure in the past so needs his attitude taken on trust.
12lb rise for winning here in December appeared to find him out at Kempton.

Off the mark in a Fontwell maiden last time, he starts handicapping on a far mark. He'll need to jump better than he did at Fontwell but his bumper form is working out well and he is one of the least exposed in here. Looks to have a big shout.
Fontwell maiden winner who has Grade 1 Cheltenham entries; one to note on handicap debut.

A perfect 2/2 in handicaps, well placed in a conditional contest to escape a penalty for his second success. The handicapper has hit him hard with a twelve-pound rise and won't find it so easy to dominate these from the front.
Easy winner of both his handicaps but has shot up 12lb since the latest.

Producing a solid run of form in handicaps without being able to get his head in front, fitted with a first-time visor now. This is the deepest race that he has run in so is easy enough to pass over.
Visor applied on the back of a quiet run, but not sure even his best form is good enough.

Steady progression over hurdles for this yard, producing a solid effort on handicap debut last time. Yet to run on ground softer than good, up three pounds and pitched into a deeper contest all leave him plenty to find.
Improving novice and latest second in a Wincanton handicap looks strong form.
