Course Winner - Won before at this course
Cold Recent Form Jockey - 0 wins from 11 in the last 14 days (0%)
Winless run stretches back to June 2016, currently seven pounds below that mark. He's not been disgraced in recent starts under both codes and drops into class four company for the first time in handicaps. One of the likelier options.
Returns to fences over a trip at which he has no worthwhile form.

Hot Recent Form Jockey - 8 wins from 32 in the last 14 days (25%)
Has failed to complete on two of his last three starts, unseating in the Highland National on his latest outing. He was placed off a three-pound lower mark at Wetherby two starts ago, but he's certainly not a reliable option.
Won this last year off 4lb higher and returns for his defence in reasonably good form.

Lightly-raced over fences, looking exposed since winning twice over three miles at Musselburgh in the winter. Absent since running poorly over 2m 4f at that same venue last time and he remains above his last winning mark; needs more.
Return to 3m a plus but would have very little margin for error off this mark.

Wind Op - First run after wind operation
Eleven-year-old who is winless since a hat-trick fo wins in the winter of 2016, mainly disappointing in three starts this year. He was beaten a long way in a veterans' event at Haydock in March and despite his mark, he's difficult to warm to.
Well handicapped and feasible he could revive having undergone wind surgery.

3 x Distance Winner - Won 3 times before at this distance
Hot Recent Form Trainer - 3 wins from 12 in the last 14 days (25%)
Has won two of his last three starts, winning by a neck at Hexham on his latest outing. The front pair pulled a long way clear and he battled back gamely, so a seven-pound rise is certainly fair. Likely contender here.
3m on good ground perfect but he's getting high in the weights now.

Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
Has an indifferent strike-rate over fences, running very well over the winter when posting figures of 1322. Not in the same mood in two recent starts, however, and his best form has come over shorter. Vulnerable today.
Gets little respite from the handicapper and ideally he wants shorter and softer ground.
