Form & Verdict

Won't mind rain as the ground was heavy when winning over 2m5f here in March, since when he's comfortably won a good-ground point over 2m4f; stays 3m but the extra 3f today will be unknown territory; fair chance should he get home.

Form & Verdict

Improving 6yo; second in what's always a good hunter chase at Haydock before going on to win his next three, bringing up the hat-trick at Cheltenham (3m2f, soft) despite jumping right late on; won that despite not being at his best and hard to beat here.

T: Miss Hannah Roach

Creditable second in good-quality Haydock hunter chase (2m6f, heavy) on rules debut in February and a dual 2m4f winner since (heavy/soft); forced to work very hard to justify short odds at Ludlow last month but the front two pulled a long way clear; sets very good standard of rules form and will be hard to beat if today's trip-and-ground combination suits.

Has done well in points these last 12 months and has continued the good work in hunter chases, comfortably justifying odds-on in a weak one at Leicester a month ago (2m4f, heavy); unlike some of these, he looks a good bet to give his true running.

Prolific pointer who was runner-up in this two years ago and was only 28-1 when pulling up at the following year's Cheltenham Festival; won his latest point and should give a good account of himself.

Just the two runs over regulation fences, finishing second over C&D last April and again going close at Stratford the following month (both on good); won't be disgraced if repeating either of those efforts and it was a doddle in his recent points.

9yo who maintained his prolific record in points when beating previous-race contender Shantou Flyer last month and then chased home a respected rival at Cheltenham (4m, soft); assured stamina could come in handy.

Unexceptional maiden hurdler for Olly Murphy but ten successes from 15 points; well on top against Young Buck and D'Jango in a warm Cotley ladies open last month (3m, good to soft), and has won both starts at 3m4f-3m6f also; big player if coping with these bigger fences.

Dual Irish point winner; rallying second in a 3m maiden hunter chase at Cork two months ago (soft; this first-time headgear combination) but likely to need more if she's to beat the best of these.
