Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
Three-time winner in 2018, bidding for a four-timer when finishing a close third at Perth in September. He's been absent since that run, remaining on the same mark. Up in grade and that demands more, but he's capable fresh at least.
Progressive last year but air of vulnerability about him off his career-high mark.

Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
Has plenty of fantastic course and distance form, going close in a Grade 3 handicap at this venue back in November off three pounds higher. Never travelling when pulled up at the Festival, but much better can be expected here and he looks tough to beat.
Good course record and cheekpieces now added following his flop at the Festival (3m1f).

Cold Recent Form Jockey - 1 wins from 26 in the last 14 days (4%)
Dual winner at Ascot earlier in the campaign, including a hard-fought victory over Aintree winner Kildisart when giving that rival five pounds. Didn't stay 2m 6f at Newbury when last seen and back down in trip, he lurks on an extremely dangerous mark.
His Ascot win in November reads really well and unwise to judge him on his latest effort.

Hasn't always convinced over fences, without a win in this sphere since February 2018. Beaten just half a length behind the progressive Capeland off two pounds lower in December, though two subsequent heavy defeats have raised question marks.
Below his best at shorter trips the last twice; others have stronger credentials.

Cold Recent Form Jockey - 0 wins from 17 in the last 14 days (0%)
Won a graduation chase at Carlisle in November, placing over course and distance in January when beaten two lengths by the progressive Kildisart. Not as good when last seen at the Festival, but a repeat of that prior second gives him an each-way squeak.
Below par last time but his previous second behind Kildisart here represents strong form.

Welcome return to form when finishing second at Doncaster on her latest outing, only finding the smart Lady Buttons too strong. She's on a very workable handicap mark at present and conditions are ideal for her; leading form chance.
Placed in a Grade 1 and might well have been saved for this since her second at Christmas.

Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Back to winning ways when landing a three-runner handicap at Leicester in February against her own sex. Not beaten far when trying to follow up over course and distance the next time, but her latest Newbury defeat exposed her limitations.
Best at Leicester and this company superior to what she's accustomed to.

Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Lightly raced over fences, winning his last two outings in great style. Forged clear to beat a subsequent winner at Hereford on his latest outing, raised eleven pounds for that success. More on his plate here, but he's progressive and needs considering.
Didn't exactly blow them away at Hereford and he finds himself 13lb higher here.
