Bagged handicap hurdles at up to 21f in April. 10 lb found him out in hat-trick bid at Fontwell (19.2f) in May and this no easy return from 6 months off.

Verdict

SEROSEVSKY was only narrowly denied when last tried in handicap company and his most recent performance was not without promise. The Bottom Bar has yet to run a bad race over hurdles and he should be in the mix once again today. Darcy Ward is another who brings solid form to the table, while Cheap And Cheerful completes the shortlist.

Verdict

A leap of faith is required in supporting ZUBAYR, but he arrives on a potentially lenient mark on the pick of his form, and he's well worth chancing to hit the ground running on the back of a wind operation. Serosevsky has enjoyed a consistent spell of late and can also feature, whilst handicap-debutants The Bottom Bar and Asylo are also worth a second look.

Bettered his hurdling form when sent chasing last season and continues to shape like there's a bigger performance in him, shaping as if better for run at Wincanton last time.

Verdict

VIVAS arrives here having won both of his previous starts over fences and a 5lb rise in the ratings for the most recent of those victories appears to be fair. Molineaux was a consistent performer over hurdles last season and he could go well once again today, while No Hassle Hoff would be a player based on his best form. Springtown Lake has ground concerns but if some rain arrives then he could make his presence felt.

Verdict

NO HASSLE HOFF was highly impressive on his reappearance last year and has long since promised to make a better chaser, so it's worth taking the chance that he can up his game to make a winning start to this campaign despite some capable opposition. Fellow chasing debutants Dentley de Mee and Molineaux also make plenty of appeal and Vivas must be respected bidding for the hat-trick.

Verdict

SEVARANO was far from disgraced when filling fifth place in a Grade 2 bumper at Aintree back in April and he could take high order in this sphere in the coming months. Eldorado Allen displayed ability in both starts in France and he is very interesting on his debut for Colin Tizzard. Finawn Bawn and Star Of Lanka are others who could go well based on their form in bumpers.

Verdict

SEVARANO put up a good effort in the Grade 2 Aintree bumper in April and looks a good prospect for jumping. Eldorado Allen is open to improvement on first start for Colin Tizzard and rates the chief threat ahead of bumper-winner Finawn Bawn.

A massive improver and huge credit to his up-and-coming trainer last season, signing off with victory in the 25f Grade 3 handicap chase on National Day at Aintree. Will go on improving.

Verdict

All four runners are entered in the Ladbrokes Trophy at Newbury at the beginning of next month and, if all goes well, it is likely we will see them all reoppose there. TERREFORT was a revelation last season for Nicky Henderson, starting out life in a novice handicap chase at Huntingdon before running in Grade 1 contests for the rest of the campaign. He proved that he stayed 3m1f at Aintree on soft ground when beating Ms Parfois by three-and-three-quarter lengths and showed on that occasion that he can be ridden differently having led on all three starts previously in this country. Elegant Escape was third behind the selection in the aforementioned Aintree contest and is likely to come on for the outing after a wind operation over the summer, while Thomas Patrick and Coo Star Sivola bring solid handicap form to the table.

Verdict

TERREFORT won 2 of his 3 starts in Grade 1 novice chases for his new connections and could go right to the top for the Champion Trainer. He can make a successful return. Thomas Patrick and Elegant Escape are both fine prospects for the big long-distance races, while Coo Star Sivola has a race-fitness edge.

Fair under both codes and ran well in AW Lingfield handicap when last seen in May. Suspect he's not on a bad mark if ready to roll.

Verdict

DESTRIER showed good promise in novice contests before struggling at Kempton in a Grade 2 behind Global Citizen in February. He should have won at the same track in April but made a costly mistake at a crucial time and begins this season off a more-than-workable mark of 127. Nelson's Touch was third in that contest behind the selection and followed up on his handicap debut at Uttoxeter in May. He warrants consideration along with Don't Ask, Romanor and Turning Gold.

Verdict

A massive field for what should be an informative handicap and ROMANOR is taken to get the hat-trick up. He scored a shade cosily at Stratford when last seen and promises to do even better in this big-field scenario with the prospect of a fierce gallop on the cards. Destrier, Hollywood Ken and Royal Sunday are among the plethora of dangers.

Yet to really threaten for this yard and was making no impression when unseating his rider 3 out at Wincanton 14 days ago.

Verdict

PETE THE FEAT loves it here and can win the race named in his honour for Charlie Longsdon. The likeable 14-year-old handles varying ground and this contest doesn't look as competitive as last year, where he was fourth on his reappearance. Rock Gone was second in the Sodexo Gold Cup at Ascot when last seen 12 months ago and his trainer can ready one after an absence, while 2015 winner Vino Griego and 2016 victor Loose Chips are others to consider.

Verdict

ROCK GONE is far less exposed than the majority of veterans and could be worth chancing on his belated comeback. Carole's Destrier and Rathlin Rose both have good records around here and they head the dangers.
