Shaped well when finding only a couple of unexposed sorts too good at Sandown on penultimate start. Failed to back that up last time, but remains on a good mark for when it all clicks.

A winner of a hurdle race at 2m on good to soft ground, but that win was over two years ago. Finished 17l behind Cougar Kid when fourth of 10 at 4-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Hereford over 2m 4f (soft) last month.

Was well held back over hurdles after 5 months off at Leicester last month, but may have needed the run and entitled to strip fitter today (won this last year off 4 lb lower).

Looked on a stiff enough opening mark but is unexposed and showed improved form when third of 10 on handicap debut at Huntingdon (19.6f) last month. This drop back in trip no obvious plus though.

Plumpton regular PADDY'S POEM has the assistance of leading conditional Bryony Frost as he looks to build on his recent consistent form to land a first victory over hurdles. Richard Patrick has struck up a great relationship with Kerry Lee this season and they can play a part here with the ageing Gassin Golf, who continues to slip down the weights. Similar sentiments apply to course and distance winner Chieftain's Choice, while James Bowen is an eye-catching jockey booking aboard Georgieshore and the Leicester winner can't be ruled out from the foot of the handicap.

Donald McCain has to be respected when he brings the horsebox south and his UBALTIQUE still looks fairly treated as the 10-year-old bids to land a hat-trick of chase wins in this. Tara Bridge routed his rivals when 13-lengths clear last time and has to be given serious respect off a 7lb higher mark, while Movie Legend can finish ahead of Un Beau Roman in the scrap for the minor honours.

Not a great deal separates a host of these but the penny has really dropped with MELANGERIE now and she made it two wins on the bounce with a stylish success at Ludlow last month. She looks to be a very smart mare in the making and can take another step up the ladder this afternoon. If You Say Run was no match for the high-class Maria's Benefit at Taunton but still boasts a smart level of form, while others worth considering closely are recent Newbury scorer All Currencies and Midnight Tune.

MIDNIGHT MONTY has been knocking on the door of late, including when runner-up over the extended 2m5f at Market Rasen on his first start for Jamie Snowden last month, and is expected to improve for this step back in trip under who rider who lifted this cup in 2014 on Savant Bleu. Last year's winner Rathlin Rose is the one expected to put up most resistance, with the same pilot returning in the plate. The pick of the remainder may be recent Plumpton scorer Leo Luna.
