Howlongisafoot went some way to putting a Plumpton disappointment behind him when second over course and distance, and the application of a visor could prompt further improvement. Mr Fickle has that particular headgear back on in an attempt to perk him up, while Versifier is tried in cheekpieces again, but SWIFT NATIVE is less exposed than her rivals and Nick Gifford's point-to-point winner begins handicap life off a really lowly mark.

Mercian King took a step back in the right direction when filling the runner-up berth at Stratford but has been raised 3lb for it, so another chance is given to LE PRECIEUX, who only got as far as the sixth at Fakenham but he was sent off favourite and is fancied to make amends. Last month's Towcester spin will have blown away any cobwebs Royal Plaza might have had, while last year's winner Purple 'n Gold is struggling for form.

TORCELLO was a smart Flat handicapper and although he has taken his time to get his act together over hurdles, his quality shone through when he got off the mark at Tramore and he can take this prize back across the Irish Sea. Roll Of The Dice broke through at this venue but the resulting penalty means that Nicky Henderson's jumping newcomer Mill Green is perhaps a bigger danger, even if his bumper form is nothing special.

MIDNIGHT BLISS completed a quickfire hat-trick between the flags and made a smooth transition to racing under Rules at Fakenham. He benefited from a positive Bryony Frost ride on that occasion and is taken to defy a 13lb hike. Roparta Avenue deserves to get his head in front following a couple of seconds, the most recent of which came over timber here. Guerrilla Tactics went really close at Warwick and he will have his supporters again, and Barlow is interesting if raring to go after a break.

Modest form in 3 starts over hurdles for David Pipe (distant second penultimate run) but interesting to see if there's any confidence behind him in market having switched to Dan Skelton. Tongue tied.

Yet to place in four starts. Pulled up at the last when 20-1 at Uttoxeter over 2m 7f (heavy) in a hurdle race won by Kayf Moss in April on his latest outing. Having his first run for a new stable today, previously with D E Pipe.
