11st 7lb

J: Beau Morgan

T: Ben Pauling

Progressive last year, winning three times on good ground, and following a break he was better than ever when runner-up in the Ultima at Cheltenham (3m1f, heavy) last month under regular rider Beau Morgan; up 4lb to a career-high mark but may well play a leading role once more.

T: Ben Pauling

Runner-up in all three starts at this course, twice when hurdling and once over C&D (good to soft) which followed a successful return to fences at Uttoxeter last July; on the back foot from some way out in the Coral Gold Cup at Newbury in December, though, and left on the same mark since.

Won over hurdles at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good) in May and followed up when back over fences there (3m2f, good) in July; returned from a break with good second of 13 at Cheltenham (3m1f, good to soft) in October and this progressive 8yo may have more left in the tank, but it's needed in this red-hot handicap.

11st 9lb

J: Beau Morgan

T: Ben Pauling

Not straightforward at the business end of his races but has 12-21 career strike-rate (including points); took form to new level when winning 16-runner handicap chase at Uttoxeter (3m2f, good) in July and subsequent 5lb rise does not look excessive.

Productive sort who has a very good strike-rate; has done well over hurdles of late, winning off this mark here (2m7f, good) most recently; 5-8 in points and 3-4 over rules fences; strong contender back in this sphere.
