365365105 Aronius
Ex-German 10f Flat winner who surpassed previous hurdling exploits when geting off the mark at Southwell 10 days ago, responding well under a strong ride. Respected under a penalty back up in trip.

365365915 Auenwirbel
Modest hurdler who after 13 months off, took advantage of a drop in the weights to score readily over C&D 9 days ago. Should strip fitter for that and may be well treated under a penalty.

3653659512 Nocte Volatus
Yet to get his head in front but has hinted at promise, plugging on for fourth of 11 in handicap at Ffos Las (2½m, heavy) in November. He's unexposed and should give a good account.

365365403 Russian Service
Back to form with a bang when leading towards the finish over C&D last month. Blinkers go on and only nudged up 3 lb so likely to remain competitive.

365365179 Blazing Saddles
Modest hurdler who stepped up plenty on his reappearance run when fourth at Wincanton early this year. Unable to make any impact in a jumpers bumper since so worth monitoring back over timber.

11-7Matt GriffithsJeremy Scottlocked7/17/10
3653655010 Manor Park
Winner at Market Rasen in November and wasted no time getting back to form when fourth of 11 in handicap hurdle at Plumpton (15.9f, soft) 50 days ago. Each-way claims.

11-7Archie BellamyBrian Barrlocked10/110/10
365365406 Tactical Manoeuvre
Has 3 C&D wins, the latest last February. Yet to really hit top form this term but his mark is starting to edge back down so can't be ruled out.

365365497 Vanderbilt
Long-standing maiden (0-23) but close up when exiting 2 out here before finding just one too good at Bangor (16.7f, heavy) last time. Solid each-way chance.

365365152 Arcade Attraction
Landed a gamble over fences at Ffos Las on reappearance and might have needed the run in a first-time tongue strap after 3 months off when sixth at Hereford 15 days ago. Mark continues to tumble.

365365864 Russian Exile
Maiden who shaped well on his return at Newton Abbot but possibly failed to stay the longer trip at Fontwell when last seen in December.

365365231 Cheng Gong
Fair winner at 12f on flat. Little impact over hurdles so far and a similar story when well beaten in a jumpers bumper at Kempton last month. Work to do on handicap debut with cheekpieces reapplied.

36536510416 Dido
Six-time winner between the flags and though 0-9 under Rules, he's performed with credit when placed in 3 of 5 starts this season. Switches back over timber for first time since 2014.

3653654411 Toad Of Toad Hall
Showed a bit more than previously when fourth in a Wincanton maiden (15.3f) in December but failed to repeat that effort when pulled up at Exeter since. Competitive assignment on handicap debut.

3653652114 Motdepas
Poor hurdler who showed more temperament than ability when well beaten in a jumpers bumper at Kempton last month. Firmly up against it once again back over hurdles.

36536569813 Champagne Ideas
Lightly-raced maiden hurdler. Had wind op before excellent third in 19f handicap hurdle at Chepstow but off track 23 months since. Tongue strap on for comeback with his fitness a big worry.

365365428 Jupiter Rising
Pulled up in a point and down the field in a bumper/trio of maiden hurdles in recent months. Faces an uphill task on handicap debut.

3653657917 Across The Park
Lightly-raced maiden who went with no promise on first start for 2 years when pulled up at Wincanton in December. Tongue goes on but hard to make any sort of case for on handicap bow.
