MARIA'S BENEFIT ended her last campaign finishing midfield in a Grade 2 bumper at Aintree and she returned last month with a second-placed finish on her hurdling debut at Worcester. Al Shahir showed a decent level of ability in bumpers and he could prove to be the main threat to the selection. Darling Maltaix was very disappointing on his debut for this yard but it is far too soon to be writing him off.

A very interesting race for the time of year but it will take a good one to beat DIEGO DU CHARMIL, despite the fact that he has to carry a penalty for his win here last month. The five-year-old jumped very well on that occasion and he was the best of these over hurdles. That said, The Unit was progressive over timber last season and he was last seen finishing third in a Grade 1 at Aintree in April. Shantou Rock and Space Oddity are the pick of the remainder.

BEER GOGGLES bumped into a well-handicapped rival when finishing second at Aintree in May. A 10lb rise for that effort may appear to be very harsh but this son of Oscar did pull 27 lengths clear of the remaining field. Ballyoptic was not far off the best staying hurdlers last season and he could outclass these if fully wound up today but surely he has much bigger targets later in the campaign. Winningtry remains unexposed and he also warrants a place on the shortlist for this contest. Mighty Leader and Whataknight are others who could go well in a very competitive contest.

FLYING ANGEL and Frodon both have to give 10lb and upwards to their rivals but both are classy enough to do so. Preference, though, goes to the former as he landed a Grade 1 prize at Aintree in the spring and the Nigel Twiston-Davies team are currently in decent enough form at the beginning of the season. Frodon himself was a revelation last season and it seems interesting that he has a first-time tongue tie fitted now. Knockgraffon has the potential to improve on just his fifth start over fences, while Black Corton has improved since going up in trip in small field novice chases but seems to have an inflated rating.

G FOR GINGER has improved plenty on her last couple of starts and posted a very solid front running performance to see of Maria's Benefit (runs 2:00 here today) at Worcester and the daughter of Lucarno can improve for a step back up in trip. Champagne To Go looks one capable of improvement now going handicapping, while Kentford Heiress has been consistent of late and is worthy of consideration.
