J: Harry Cobden

T: Paul Nicholls

Acts on soft; a leading staying novice hurdler last term and the same as a novice chaser this season, although he did not show it with first-time cheekpieces at Cheltenham Festival last month (scoped dirty); tops the weights after his Graded events but a win today is not entirely ruled out, as it's long appeared that an outright test of stamina would suit him well.

J: Harry Cobden

T: Paul Nicholls

Won last year's Albert Bartlett and has developed as expected switched to fences this season; won at Exeter and Sandown (3m Grade 2, soft) before third in Cotswold Chase here (3m1f, good to soft) against more experienced sorts; fast finish that day would not have suited and cheekpieces go on now; the one to beat if stamina comes into play, as it often does in this race.

J: Harry Cobden

T: Paul Nicholls

Up-and-coming stayer who won last season's Albert Bartlett (Grade 1) at the Cheltenham Festival; 2-2 since switched to chasing, making all in Grade 2 at Sandown (3m, soft) latest; brings plenty of potential to open company and bids to cement his claims for the Brown Advisory (Grade 1 novice here in March); respected.

J: Harry Cobden

T: Paul Nicholls

Won the Grade 1 Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham (3m, soft) in March and beat The Changing Man by about 2l to win on last month's chase debut at Exeter (3m, good to soft); carries 3lb penalty here but Paul Nicholls believes he'll improve for that reappearance run; strong claims.

11st 2lb

J: Harry Cobden

T: Paul Nicholls

Winning pointer; only his third run over hurdles when a battling winner of the Grade 1 3m Albert Bartlett at the Cheltenham Festival (soft) and he backed that up with a close fourth at Aintree where the sharper track perhaps didn't play to his strengths; reportedly schooled very well over fences at home and the sky looks the limit.
