Smart hurdler who wasn't at his best when last seen 7 months ago but scored on last year's reappearance, so a big effort isn't out of the question.

Smart mare who rarely runs a bad race. Got the better of Paisley Park at Wetherby on return, but had a fitness edge that day, and is now worse off at the weights.

2020 Stayers' winner at Cheltenham and, while he went winless last term, he showed there's some life left in him when third at Aintree on return. Return to this trip will suit.

Likeable mare who bolted up in the Pertemps Final at Cheltenham in March, then completed a straightforward task in listed company at Limerick on return. This is tougher, but she can't be dismissed.
