Rons Dream has finished second on her last three occasions and patience is starting to wear thin with the eight-year-old, though she does look likely to relish going up in trip once more and sets the standard of the British-trained contenders. Ready preference, however, is for ELUSIVE THEATRE, who was fifth in a hot handicap hurdle at Cheltenham in December before winning at Ayr six weeks ago. She is only small but jumped hurdles well and could have too much for this opposition now back over fences. Expresstime can win the battle for third.

Mcgowan's Pass and SAM'S GUNNER both carry penalties for their past novice wins, but they look to be the class acts in the race and narrow preference is for the Mick Easterby-trained latter. The five-year-old finished second to a smart Dan Skelton animal at Catterick before going one better at the same venue a month later, with connections reportedly pondering some big targets including the EBF Final at Sandown in March. Taxmeifyoucan receives weight all round but does have a 139-day absence to overcome.

Dame Rose receives a sex allowance here and appreciated the drop back to a shorter trip when a creditable fourth at Doncaster in a Grade 2 behind the likes of Maria's Benefit and Irish Roe last time out, while Better Getalong did it well at Ayr last time after previously running respectably in a Grade 2 at Cheltenham. Last year's winner CYRUS DARIUS was slightly disappointing over fences at Wetherby over Christmas, but this return to hurdles and slight step up in trip should see him in a much better light.

Big River has been disappointing the last twice for Lucinda Russell but should appreciate this drop in class after finding Listed company too hot recently. He probably wants a greater test of stamina than this, so preference is for SHANTOU FLYER. Second to Frodon in a Cheltenham Grade 3 last month, cheekpieces have made all the difference to Richard Hobson's charge and he looks suited by these conditions. Seldom Inn and Charmix both have a bit to find to trouble the selection.

Landecker will no doubt prove popular after scoring over further off 5lb lower here three weeks ago and appears an obvious starting point, though of slightly more interest is the unexposed Rose Dobbin representative PLANET NINE, who returned to winning ways when switched to handicap company at Catterick earlier in the month and is expected to take a 7lb rise in his stride. The consistent Bruichladdich wouldn't be winning out of turn.

Winner of the 2014 Scottish Grand National, AL CO has back class in abundance. Micky Bowen's 13-year-old showed his appetite still remains at the veteran stage of his career when landing a similar contest over C&D last month and is expected to notch a double at the expense of Cultram Abbey, who was forced to play second fiddle behind the selection 32 days ago. Sir Jack Yeats commands respect on the back of his 3m victory at Market Rasen nine days ago and looks best of the rest.
