Completed a chase hat-trick (off higher marks) two seasons ago; subsequent record is a mixture of non-completions and modest efforts, most recently well behind Rose Sea Has at Chepstow; big revival is needed.

Nothing like the force of old but is effective on heavy ground and was clearcut winner off today's mark at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in April; needs to bounce back from last month's low-key reappearance run but still enters calculations.

Nothing like the force of old but won off much-reduced mark at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) in April; not seen since a lesser effort in May but ran well when fresh at this time last year; a possible.

T: Alastair Ralph

C&D winner who regained winning form in returning cheekpieces at Chepstow (2m3f, good to soft) last month, though he may have been fortunate to do so (only danger fell two out); 3lb higher, but the return to this trip is probably a plus and he holds frame claims at least.

Just 1-15 over fences but is hinting at a return to winning form, having finished second in three of his last four starts, latest at Chepstow (2m, heavy) back from a break; possibilities off a handy mark.

Four-time chase winner, who is very well treated on old form but his last success was two years ago; perked up with a creditable third at Hereford (2m5f) in January but he failed to back that up last time and others are more convincing.

Raced mainly at around 2m but returned to form with clearcut success when upped to 2m4f at Lingfield (good to soft) 11 days ago and is now 6-20 over fences; escapes a penalty here (due a 5lb rise) and ought to cope with the slower ground; obvious contender.

10yo who is not easy to predict but he shaped as though he needed the run at Huntingdon on his recent return and he's 2-3 over C&D, including a win in this race (off 3lb higher) last year; looks interesting back at this track and he's in the mix for in-form yard.

Suited by sound surface; far from consistent over hurdles and fences this term; burst a blood vessel when last seen; however, has a good chance off current mark provided he returns from layoff in top form.

15yo who ran well when second at Bangor (2m1f, heavy) last month and wasn't disgraced from a long way out of the handicap at Ffos Las (2m, good to soft) subsequently; runs off his proper mark here and could be thereabouts, but his losing run goes back to 2017 and he's very hard to win with.
