Cosy winner of a 2m handicap at Lingfield this month; only fifth of six at Kempton last time but it was still a fair effort; should remain competitive at this level.

Yard is in fine form and this one reeled in the leader to win with something to spare at Lingfield last week (2m); is only lightly raced on AW and has more to come despite the penalty.

Dual winning hurdler who is 0-13 on the Flat but not disgraced when fourth of ten at Wolverhampton (16.5f, Tapeta) last month; frame possibilities from the same mark.

Runner-up to Freewheelin at Newcastle (2m, Tapeta) in October on his second stable start and again ran well when fourth at Wolverhampton (16.5f, Tapeta) last Saturday; every chance he'll be thereabouts.

J: Stevie Donohoe

Placed in two low-grade Flat handicaps for new stable this autumn but probably needs more to win this and he was tailed off over fences last time.

J: Nathan Moscrop

T: Rebecca Menzies

Ex-Irish 5yo who was placed in two low-grade Flat handicaps for new stable this autumn; has some fairly useful hurdling form on his CV and made quite encouraging chasing debut this spring but the others in this line-up all look stronger.

Ex-Irish 5yo who started favourite on his debut for new connections over C&D late last month; another solid effort in defeat on Tapeta since and his chance is there for all to see.

Dual hurdle winner in Ireland at up to 3m1f; changed hands for £8,000 after running-on 8l second in a Navan handicap (1m6f, good; first-time visor) recently; may want ground softer than good to be seen to best effect but not ruled out.
