J: Micheal Nolan

Inconsistent in recent seasons and his stamina for 3m6f on heavy ground is not copper-bottomed but he runs this track well and is well handicapped on form as recent as the autumn; can't be ruled out.

Tailed off on Cheltenham's cross-country course in November but respectable efforts on either side of that, albeit still beneath his best form when fourth at Ludlow latterly; one or two others have more going for them but he's got an each-way chance on ground he handles.

Appeared to show the benefit of another wind op when all out to win at Warwick last month (3m1f, soft); has become hard to predict and was below par in a Class 2 at Haydock last time that he won two years earlier; however, lurks on a dangerous mark with cheekpieces tried and could go well.

J: Miss Lucy Turner

T: Venetia Williams

Comfortable winner at Lingfield (3m5f) ten days ago, to add to last month's Bangor success; Lucy Turner's claim cancels out the 7lb penalty (goes up 9lb in future) so shortlist material but record around here (well beaten over C&D three starts ago) isn't the best.

Disappointed on first two starts this season but returned to form with win at Bangor (3m, heavy) last month; might have been fortunate that day (narrow leader fell at final fence) and is not one to rely upon heavily but should be fine over today's longer trip and ran well on his only previous visit to Lingfield.

Out of form over fences in his two runs last summer, having won twice in that sphere last season; also pulled up in a chase here in December, after a break, and now swaps usual cheekpieces for first-time blinkers on this return to hurdling; down the weights and one to consider.
