Rarely ran a bad race for the Tom Lacey yard, including a placed run off two pounds lower. He makes his stable debut off an achievable mark, but he's been safely held fresh on two occasions and the market is your likely best guide.
Solid string of efforts earlier this year for Tom Lacey; market best guide

Better known for his exploits over fences, though he's pulled up on his last two outings in that sphere, latterly on seasonal return. Has his first hurdling start since 2017 with a huge amount to prove and caution would be advised.
Pulled up in last two handicap chases; plenty to prove back over hurdles

C&D Winner - Won before on this course at this distance
Back to winning ways when landing a selling hurdle at Uttoxeter, leaving the Michael Blake yard after a safely held second in the same grade on his latest outing. On a very good mark on his past exploits, however, and is impossible to rule out.
Two solid efforts in selling company recently; chance back in h'cap on debut for new yard

Has been in great form this summer, finishing second on both his starts since winning at Southwell. Only went down by two lengths on the latter occasion and a pound rise for that is unlikely to stop him if he sees out this new distance.
Three solid efforts since a tongue-tie was added; bit more needed over a new trip

Inconsistent seven-year-old who scored at Bangor two starts ago, unable to back that up when safely held at Cartmel last time. It's easier to forgive that effort as it came over further, but he's far from guaranteed to bounce back.
Not on a going day last time; looks high enough in the weights even if bouncing back

Landed a race over fences at Perth in July 2018 but four starts since have been way below that standard. He's gone back over timber in 2019 and both runs have been bitterly disappointing. Handicapper has given him a chance but lots to prove.
Two modest efforts since a spell on the sidelines; needs to bounce back

Failed to fire between the flags over the spring but made his rules return with a good third at Uttoxeter on handicap debut. His latest start at the same venue is best forgiven as it was over further and he has a strong chance back down in distance.
Decent start to handicap career two starts back but couldn't match that form last time

Won twice last autumn, including a course and distance success off a five-pound lower rating. She's been absent since November, however, where her form had begun to tail off. Still above her last winning mark and she's difficult to fancy.
Probably needs a career best to win this on return from a winter break and breathing op
