It is interesting that Nicky Henderson sends the well-thought-of Pym out nice and early in the jumps season having been tenderly handled by the Seven Barrows master so far. He remains an exciting prospect despite a few defeats in bumpers last season, but Henderson's inmates occasionally need their first outing of the season which tempers enthusiasm, therefore the preference is for DEYRANN DE CARJAC. Alan King's five-year-old was a 20-length winner at Warwick back in May when getting off the mark over timber, and his earlier hurdles appearances, including a third to Kalashnikov on his debut over obstacles at Doncaster, look smart pieces of form. Volcano was well regarded when with Christian Williams and despite seeing the form of his Exeter bumper win reversed by Acey Milan in a Cheltenham Listed race, as well as being beaten out of sight in the Champion Bumper, the young grey should have more to come now hurdling and a return to better ground is a positive. Philip Hobbs has his string in good order and his Warwick bumper winner Umndeni is worthy of a place on the shortlist having beaten the useful Morning Vicar on that first racecourse sighting.

Lord Duveen was fifth behind two subsequent Grade 1 winners on his hurdles debut last winter and, having only raced twice over timber last term, the Doyen gelding could have more to come this season with his trainer-jockey combination firing on all cylinders at present. Colin Tizzard's string are normally primed for this meeting and any market support for his Jeremy newcomer, Reserve Tank, must be respected, while Baddesley Knight was a useful bumper performer last season and progress is likely. However, preference is for SUPREMELY LUCKY, who appears the pick of the Dan Skelton duo and landed a bumper here on his first appearance for the yard in February. The stable are not noted for their bumper winners, so it would be no surprise if the six-year-old, who showed some likeable qualities during that appearance, has plenty more to come now hurdling.

Paul Nicholls won this last season with If You Say Run, and the same owners are represented here by Listed bumper winner POSH TRISH, who remains a top-class prospect despite her season petering out in the spring. She has always been talked of as one to note when jumping obstacles and having accounted for Grade 2 winner Getaway Katie Mai in a bumper, it would be no surprise to see her as a leading performer in this sphere this season. Definitelyanoscar was only beaten half a length in a competitive Cheltenham bumper in the spring and only looks set to improve as she steps up in distance, with Empreinte Reconce more than capable of building on her Newton Abbott victory in the summer and can't be discounted here. Jockey bookings suggest Festival Dawn is the pick of the Philip Hobbs-trained duo, while Meep Meep wasn't beaten far when fourth in Aintree's Grade 2 mares' bumper at the Grand National meeting and must be taken very seriously.

Monbeg Legend has amassed some decent chasing experience over the summer months and arrives on the back of a solid handicap success at Stratford. That said, he now faces potential Graded chase opponents making their debuts over the larger obstacles in the shape of Poetic Rhythm, a Grade 1 winner of the Challow Hurdle at Newbury, and the unbeaten MASTER TOMMYTUCKER. The former seems to be at his best in the early part of the season so is likely to be ready to do himself justice, but the latter has a lot of untapped potential having gone unbeaten in two novice hurdles at Exeter last season. The form of his April success was backed up by the runner-up and he is in the right hands to go to the very top over fences.
