J: Harry Skelton

Won at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft) on New Year's Day and bounced back from lesser run at the Festival to win another Grade 3 handicap chase at Aintree (3m1f, good to soft) in April in a first-time tongue-tie (retained since); well beaten in the Charlie Hall on reappearance but may have needed the run and he could still have more to offer over staying trips; a possible.

T: Dan Skelton

Solid chance on form at about 2m4f on good and soft this winter, but a promising-looking challenge fizzled out in the Plate at Cheltenham last month and he hasn't been persevered with over 3m since his one-paced third at Uttoxeter last March; fitting a tongue-tie could help.

Second-season chaser who has a very solid record this term; performed well in major 2m4f handicaps here (good/soft) the last twice, finishing third in the Paddy Power then winning on New Year's Day; open to further progress and holds strong claims kept to this scenario.

Second-season chaser who has taken his form to a new level this term, scoring easily at Stratford then finishing third in the Paddy Power here, both on good ground (has won on soft); may well have further progress in him; leading contender off unaltered mark.
