Plenty of placed efforts but without a win since December 2013. Not disgraced over hurdles at Lingfield on reappearance but will continue to prove vulnerable.

Clondaw Westie signed off last term with a chase treble and is worth considering closely on his seasonal return. With the benefit of a recent run to his name, however, preference is instead for penalised Musselburgh scorer CAP ST VINCENT, who had seven lengths in hand at the line in Scotland and arrives on a hat-trick. Darebin has winning C&D form in the book and could also figure if building on a promising run at Fakenham last month.

DENILIQUIN boasts winning hurdles form in France and is worth monitoring closely in the betting now debuting for Paul Nicholls. Similar comments are applicable to Nigel Twiston-Davies' new recruit, Torpillo, who is sporting a hood on his UK bow. Belargus and Il Re Di Nessuno are other French imports to consider on debut for new connections, though they have been successful on the Flat and lack the hurdling experience of the aforementioned pair.

Paul Nicholls won this contest 12 months ago and has another live candidate in MAGOO. The French import underwent wind surgery before making a winning debut on these shores at Fontwell over hurdles in March. He's now debuting over fences and is expected to know his job first time out. The Bottom Bar and Oh Land Abloom have place claims if building on solid recent efforts over timber, while recent C&D second Lithic is unlikely to be far away either, despite a 3lb rise.

DOWN THE HIGHWAY has won between the flags and made a pleasing introduction to his career under Rules, hacking up over the extended 2m3f at Lingfield last month. He's having his second run for Emma Lavelle this afternoon and is an interesting prospect now pitched into Grade 2 company. Alan King has won four of the last nine renewals and so his unbeaten Alsa Mix commands the utmost respect. Grade 3-placed over fences, Paul Nicholls' French import My Way is also worth a market check, having undergone a breathing operation ahead of his UK bow.

Winner of two hurdle races, two chases and a point-to-point from 2m 5f to 3m 2f on good to soft and soft ground, but last win was over four years ago. Third of 6 behind Spookydooky beaten a distance at 9-2 on his latest outing in a chase at Exeter over 3m 7f (heavy) in April.

FIFTY SHADES was touched off by under a length over 3m1f at Cheltenham last time but he pulled nicely clear of the remainder and is expected to remain competitive off this 3lb higher mark. First-time cheekpieces could be a source of immediate improvement for the selection's stablemate, Potters Corner, who had a recent outing at Exeter, though the main danger may be grade dropper Mendip Express.
