Hot Recent Form Jockey - 6 wins from 15 in the last 14 days (40%)
Was denied narrowly over track and trip back in May, now two pounds higher than for that and without a claimer. Ran well enough on the level last time on unsuitably soft ground. Place claims at most, still eight pounds above his last winning mark.
Safely held on Flat last month but clear second to in-form rival over C&D in May

Shoulders a penalty for a very narrow success at Uttoxeter last month, three pounds above his official mark. Is far from guaranteed to back that effort up, and even if doing so this mark precludes him.
Only due to go up 4lb for recent Uttoxeter win but takes his chance under 7lb penalty here

Denied narrowly in his last two starts over slightly shorter, staying on over two-miles-two last time. Nudged up a pound for each of those efforts, this is a stiff mark, however this longer trip could well unlock further improvement.
Arrives here after finishing second on last two outings (2m/2m2f); considered

Regressive since making a winning stable/hurdling debut at Taunton, placing twice in novice company before showing little in two handicap starts. Hardly shaped with any more encouragement on the flat last time; wind op needs to inspire a comeback.
Won on hurdle debut in February but now needs wind op to enable a return to form

Trainer Course Specialist - 20%+ strike rate here in current & past 5 seasons
Second in three starts this year in novice/maiden company, a disappointing favourite last time when turned over by a hurdling debutante. New trip should suit, although it'll need to eke out more on his return to handicap company.
Fair form when second in 2m maiden last month; now upped in trip for handicap return

Seen mostly on the level recently, struggling on reappearance on Tapeta. Conditions suit and she's on a fair mark if back to hurdling at her best, five pounds lower than when placing in November 2017. Recent evidence suggests that's unlikely.
First hurdle run since 2017; has regressed significantly on the Flat in the meantime

Only Ride - Jockey's only ride at the meeting
Placed in all four runs this year including on stable debut when denied by a neck under similar conditions at Uttoxeter. This contest demands more and his record of none from nine is a worry, for all that he races off an unchanged, dangerous mark.
3lb ahead of the handicapper after close second to Final Choice on recent stable debut

Now rated fourteen pounds below his opening mark after four underwhelming runs in handicap company. Was a little better last time, not beaten far into sixth over track and trip. Dropped a pound, he could sneak a place but no more than that.
0-8 over hurdles; not beaten far here three weeks ago but something extra needed

Was off the track for a year before returning to action for this stable with an impressive success. Eight pounds ahead of the assessor and with the yard flying, he can take this from bottom weight for all that this is a tougher assignment.
Escapes penalty for recent stable-debut win at Worcester; makes obvious appeal

This is a rise in grade in for BRAVE HELIOS but he and the well-backed favourite pulled well clear of the others at Worcester last week.
