Placed in maiden hurdle here (2m4f, good to soft) last March and a three-time point winner on good ground this year, most recently in ladies' open at Cotley a fortnight ago; respectable third on slower-than-ideal ground in Leicester hunter chase two starts ago; likely contender here.

Useful hurdler at his best for David Pipe; left that stable after disappointing chasing debut in November but ran well in a point for new connections last month, and subsequently dead-heated in a match race; could have a say here.

Fair form when placed in two maiden hurdles for Paul Nicholls last spring (1m7f/2m, good) but lost his way afterwards; pulled up on last month's hunter chase debut at Southwell (albeit ran well to a point before making a respiratory noise); now with another new stable; others have much less to prove.

Lightly raced 7yo; ran to fairly useful level when second in handicap hurdle at Huntingdon (2m4f, good to soft) in January and bettered his disappointing chasing debut when third in small-field event at Fontwell (2m3f, good to soft) last month; leading contender on today's hunter chase debut.

Winning hurdler in France; not the most fluent of jumpers over fences but he was still a clear second at Fontwell (2m3f, good to soft) the last time and gets in here off the same mark.
