J: Peter Kavanagh

T: Donald McCain

Hurdle and chase successes on ground ranging from good to soft; winner of one course start, over fences in 2020, and well handicapped on much of his form at about 2m4f; some way off his best on last two starts, though, and blinkers worn once last winter weren't much help.

Regularly campaigned in France where he's won five times, including his last two; has come up short in a number of British handicaps and he's 13lb out of the weights for this one; making his cross-country debut and all his best form is at up to 2m6f; it looks a big ask.

J: David Bass

T: Sophie Leech

Very useful chaser in his prime but needed considerable help from the handicapper before his hurdling win for Dan Skelton in March; unplaced in five French hurdles since joining Sophie Leech and not the most obvious answer here; suited by soft/heavy ground.

J: Tristan Durrell

T: Dan Skelton

With the cheekpieces off and having dropped down the weights, he returned to form with a creditable third at Wetherby (2m3f, good to soft) last month; his rules wins have come on soft/heavy ground and he's a strong contender if producing another good performance here.
