Fair third off this mark over hurdles at Newbury in November and won off 5lb higher over fences at Ascot in December; made mistakes when pulled up over fences at Kempton three weeks ago; he'll need a hurdling career-best if he's to come out on top in this competitive field.

Kicked off campaign with two solid runs over hurdles (including here) and showed improved form when back over fences and winning at Ascot (3m, good to soft) in December; that form has been franked by the runner-up Phoenix Way and this unexposed 7yo could be a key player up 6lb.

Very lightly raced 7yo who returned to form with a close second at Taunton (2m3f, good) in November on his second run for Paul Nicholls; disappointing in mid-division at Ascot (2m5f, good to soft) subsequently but perhaps the first-time tongue-tie will help today; not discounted.
