Landed back-to-back novice hurdles last term and left chase debut effort behind when runner-up at Chepstow in December. One to beat on that run, but jumping has been an issue since.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m 4f and 2m 5f on good and soft ground. Well beaten at 5-1 behind Another Venture when fourth of 8 on his latest outing in a chase at Hereford over 3m 1f (soft) in January.

ABBREVIATE turned in a much improved effort when beaten into second over the extended 2m7f at Huntingdon last time and is expected to step up on that performance now upped in trip. Cadeau Du Bresil hasn't looked at ease over fences on three outings previously so the main danger to the selection may be Nigel Twiston-Davies representative Scotchtown, who makes some appeal on his Chepstow second in a handicap back in December.

Walsingham Grange returned a beaten favourite when fifth at Huntingdon last time and may be able to step up on that effort now fitted with a first-time visor, though of more interest is CELESTIAL MAGIC. Richard Phillips' six-year-old has been dropped in the ratings for turning in a disappointing display at Uttoxeter last time and is back on the same mark he won this race off 12 months ago. Commodore is worth a market check too now moving into a handicap.

Allthegear No Idea rattled the crossbar at Lingfield last time and may be able to improve in first-time cheekpieces. Narrow preference, however, is for MORE THAN LUCK, who is expected to step up on his latest effort over fences now switching back to hurdles. He's only 3lb higher than when winning at Fakenham in January and newly fitted blinkers here may help. Triopas won over C&D last year and is no forlorn hope for a place.

HOW'S MY FRIEND arrives here chasing a course three-timer and the admirable 13-year-old looks tough to oppose in this company. A further 3lb rise doesn't look too harsh and Grant Cann's charge can get the better of Call Carlo, who has gone well the last twice and looks a typical gutsy type for Venetia Williams. Over My Head has plenty of ground to make up on the selection, while Alberto's Dream would be interesting if running here after completing a hat-trick at Huntingdon yesterday.

LONGHOUSESIGNORA shaped much better on her second try over hurdles at Taunton three weeks ago and Venetia Williams' charge looks poised to take another big step forward here. The six-year-old wasn't disgraced in what looked to be a hot event there and could account for Oscar Star, who is a consistent sort and has recently had a wind operation. City Star represents a powerful yard and needs a betting check, while similar comments apply to With Discretion.

SHEELBEWHATSHEELBE remains unexposed over this sort of distance and looks poised to appreciate a return to this venue after toiling at Plumpton last time out off 1lb higher. Mitchell Bastyan is one of the better conditional riders on the circuit and takes the ride this time, while the return to softer going is another positive. Whispering Harry drops in class and could go well, while Jasani needs a market check after a 723-day absence.
