Second of two finishers in this race last season (3m, soft, easy winner is now a smart chaser) and comes into this on the back of two point wins; should go well

Prolific winning pointer who won a maiden hunter chase over C&D last May (good to soft); goes on soft ground; one to consider.

His only win under rules came in a maiden hunter chase at Hexham last May; he was winning for the 11th time in points at Dalton Park last month (heavy) but will soon be out of his comfort zone at this level.

Travelled well before being delivered after the final fence by Brian Hughes to win cosily over 3m at Carlisle (heavy); he'll be into unknown territory when beyond 3m1f but shapes as though he stays all day.

Won two in a row in December (2m7f/2m3f, heavy/soft) and bounced back from lesser run at Wetherby when a neck second of four over this C&D (heavy) last month; came miles clear with one who was completing a hat-trick and he's a solid candidate up just 1lb.
