|5||18||3 Passing Dream
Lightly-raced winner over hurdles. 25/1, creditable fourth of 15 in handicap hurdle at Chepstow (16f, good) 18 days ago, finishing with running left. Big player off same mark.
| ||Daniel Sansom||Seamus Mullins||4/1||6.5/1||38|
|8||148||1 Quantum Of Solace
C&D winner. Latest win at Perth in May. Below par when fourth of 9 in handicap hurdle at Market Rasen (16.7f, good to firm, 3/1) when last seen in June and this mark may prove beyond reach.
| ||Connor Brace||Fergal O'Brien||6/1||6.5/1||8|
11/4, sixth of 7 in handicap hurdle at Plumpton (15.9f, good to firm) 26 days ago. Cheekpieces on 1st time and each-way claims if he puts his best foot forward.
| ||Harry Bannister||Harry Whittington||6.5/1||6/1||8|
Lightly-raced maiden under NH rules. Creditable fourth of 12 in handicap hurdle at this C&D (good, 16/1) 113 days ago, needing stiffer test. No more than an each-way squeak.
| ||James Davies||Henry Oliver||6.5/1||6.5/1||0|
|5||0||5 The Major
9/1 and tongue strap on for 1st time, very good second of 11 in handicap hurdle at Wincanton (15.3f, good to firm) on latest start in May. However, up 3 lb for that and hes 0-7 in this sphere.
| ||James Best||Kayley Woollacott||7.5/1||8/1||6|
Blinkered for 1st time, ninth of 14 in handicap hurdle at Newton Abbot (16.8f, good, 6/1) 94 days ago. Blinkers discarded now and claims off this reduced mark if on-song following wind surgery.
| ||Tom Cheesman|| Johnny Farrelly||7.5/1||8/1||6|
|7||0||9 Tower Of Allen
8/1, third of 13 in handicap hurdle at Market Rasen (20.6f, soft). Off 7 months and down in trip now but will be in with an each-way shout if ready to roll.
| ||Kielan Woods||Alex Hales||10/1||11/1||9|
|10||37||13 Anton Dolin
Unreliable individual. Eighteen runs since last win in 2017. Last of 7 in handicap hurdle at Bangor (16.7f, good, 14/1) 37 days ago. Percentage call is to look elsewhere.
| ||Thomas Garner||Michael Mullineaux||16/1||17/1||6|
|8||28||11 Clock On Tom
Twelve runs since last win in 2015. 9/2, sixth of 7 in handicap hurdle at Stratford (16.3f, good) 28 days ago. Nicely treated based on peak form and he enters calculations.
| ||Ciaran Gethings||Barry Leavy||16/1||15/1||7|
|4||0||12 Murchison River
Fair winner on the Flat but yet to trouble the judge in this sphere, only seventh of 9 in handicap hurdle at Southwell (20.3f, good, 33/1) 46 days ago. Back down in trip and tongue strap applied.
| ||Jonathan England||Sam England||28/1||26/1||8|
|10||0||2 Oscar Vespasian
One win from 23 NH runs. 25/1, below form eleventh of 19 in handicap hurdle at Down Royal (20f, good). Absence of more than 2 years to overcome starting out for new yard here.
| ||Mr Shane Quinlan||Jake Thomas ||33/1||34/1||3|
|5||16||6 Fiercly Forgie
Thrice-raced maiden. 25/1, seventh of 10 in novice hurdle at Sedgefield (21.2f, good) 16 days ago. Down in trip on this handicap debut and big step forward required.
| ||Henry Brooke||James Moffatt||33/1||26/1||27|
|6||0||7 Nice Thoughts
Last of 13 in handicap hurdle at Newton Abbot (16.8f, good, 50/1) on debut for this yard when last seen in August 2017. Tongue strap/cheekpieces refitted.
| ||Mr Ben Jones||Mark Shears||66/1||67/1||1|
Lightly-raced maiden. Pulled up in handicap hurdle at Wetherby (21.2f, good to firm, 150/1) 15 days ago. Unless the 1st time cheekpieces spark vast improvement, hell struggle once again.
| ||Ross Turner||Barry Murtagh||100/1||101/1||1|
