Was running well in handicaps (fourth of 18 in the latest; 3m, good) before faring as well as could have been expected when last of the four runners in a Grade 1 at Ascot last month; thankfully, the handicapper treated that 10l defeat with a pinch of salt and he's interesting back in a handicap with this very much his time of year (all three wins during April/May).

Unplaced in handicaps this season but hasn't done much wrong, fourth of 18 in the Great Yorkshire Chase at Doncaster on latest; however, he's up steeply in class here and will need others to underperform to have any chance.

J: Tristan Durrell

T: Dan Skelton

Hammered Forward Plan by 11l at Ayr last spring (3m, good; made most) and now only 6lb higher than that day after finishing weakly in two races this season following wind surgery; what could make a major difference this afternoon is the return to good ground (from good to soft); on the shortlist.

J: Fergus Gillard

Faded into fifth of seven on recent reappearance at Newbury (2m4f, good to soft) after wind surgery but that wasn't a bad run and he could improve for it; won in fine style at Ayr (3m, good) in April and this 8lb higher mark may not stop him if he returns to his best now back up in trip.

Solid record last term included easy wins in novice handicap chases at Warwick and Ayr, both over 3m on good ground; had wind surgery (his third) since last run; drops back in trip but brings a progressive profile.
