Form & Verdict

Successful novice who just missed out in a three-way photo in a 3m handicap at Newbury (good to soft) before readily justifying favouritism at Warwick (3m, good); raised 7lb for that but she's an improving mare by the looks.

Both wins at Ludlow, including on chase debut; highly tried after that and came up well short, as has continued to be the case despite having his sights lowered (hurdles and fences); he is at least unexposed at 3m.

Both wins at Ludlow, a maiden hurdle last March and then following up on his chase debut in November (2m4f, good to soft) after which he ran okay in a Grade 2 chase; two below-par efforts since (highly tried) but could do some damage back over hurdles in a race of this nature.

Form & Verdict

Lightly raced last season and had breaks between all three races, the best of them when prevailing narrowly at Doncaster first time back (2m3f, good); latest Cheltenham effort when fifth over 2m4f wasn't too shoddy; finished well beaten on his only previous run at 3m.

It was over fences when well held last time but didn't go into that race in much form having struggled in two hurdles at about this trip; he is a C&D winner back on a good mark but there are doubts right now.

J: James Turner

T: Nigel Twiston-Davies

Not at his best the last twice but the first occasion was his chase debut, and when back over hurdles at Cheltenham last time he was hampered early which proved costly given he usually makes the running; made all at Uttoxeter (2m7f, good) in July and he's fine on slow ground; could make bold bid.

Well handicapped on his Irish form and, having badly lost his way, the signs were a tad more encouraging over 2m4f here last time (stays 3m); remains opposable, however.

Grade 2-winning novice chaser who started last season with respectable runs in staying chases at Cheltenham, where he was last seen pulling up in the Kim Muir (first-time cheekpieces retained); too talented to ignore on this return to hurdling.

Won Hereford handicap (3m1f, soft) last January on second chase start and followed up in Grade 2 Towton Novices' Chase at Wetherby (3m, good to soft) last February; some fair efforts back in handicaps since but he hasn't kicked on and needs to raise his game in first-time cheekpieces to win this.

14l fourth to Malina Girl at Cheltenham (3m3f; favourite) in November, giving the impression that reappearance run might have been needed, but he again lost places late on when below-form fifth back at Cheltenham (3m2f) four weeks ago; looked promising last term but now has a bit to prove.

Unlucky not to be closer on his encouraging return from a long absence at Perth (2m4f, soft); definite chance if coming on from that run as he's well handicapped and a 3m winner in the past.
