Finally off the mark over hurdles in a Ballinrobe maiden (2m) in August (final start for Joseph O'Brien). Jumping issues have resurfaced back over fences for new stable and back over timber now.

Successful in a hurdle race and a NH flat race at 2m on heavy and yielding - soft ground. Fell at the 7th when 25-1 at Catterick over 2m (good to soft) in a chase won by Lake Field in December last year on his latest outing.

Dual bumper winner who hasn't really kicked on from his initial hurdles promise in handicaps this winter. On the positive side his mark is sliding.

Successful in two NH flat races at 2m and 2m 2f on good and good to soft ground, but last win was over two years ago. Well beaten at 16-1 behind Towering when last of 8 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Market Rasen over 2m 5f (soft) earlier this month.

Largely below form under various codes upon returning to action this winter, running no sort of race on fibresand at Southwell last time. Others make greater appeal.

He has won three hurdle races and a chase from 2m 2f to 3m on ground varying from good to firm to heavy. Beaten 3 1/2l by Ascendant when second of 7 at 7-2 on his latest NH outing in a selling hurdle race over this course and distance (soft) last month.

AARON LAD let down favourite backers on his trip to Catterick last time but will surely be winning a handicap soon and today could be time to catch Dr Richard Newland's seven-year-old. Brian Hughes is a positive booking in the saddle and the gelding should have too much for course and distance winner and nearest rival Danceintothelight, who is still 1lb higher than when landing that track success. Valgor Du Ronceray has a monster weight to carry, so it may be best to look towards Philip Kirby's Rock Of Leon when considering the other options.

Came out on top from a career-low mark back over hurdles after 9 months off at Ayr in January. Simply not in same form over fences next time but not surprising given his record. 3 lb out of weights.

He has won a hurdle race and two chases at 2m 4f on ground varying from good to soft to heavy. Finished 18l behind Brown Trix when sixth of 10 at 10-1 on his latest outing in a chase at Newcastle over 2m 4f (soft) earlier this month.

WOOD PIGEON isn't the best jumper in the field, but off this mark he should be capable of adding to his Fakenham win two starts ago. He has a jockey upgrade in the form of Brian Hughes, who is a master at getting horses jumping and he is sure to play a leading role with a clear round. Steps And Stairs finished second at Bangor when last seen and makes his first start for Henry Oliver after over a year off the track, while course and distance winner Cooper's Friend and track regular Captain Sharpe are others worthy of consideration.

Bal De Rio, who wears first-time blinkers, has placed in each of his four starts over hurdles thus far and is likely to be in the shake-up again, but BULKOV edges the vote. The form of his recent runner-up efforts both here and at Ayr looks slightly stronger and Becky Smith's valuable 7lb claim leaves them competing off the same weight. Titan narrowly lost out at Wetherby and warrants respect, while hurdling newcomers Phantom Isle and Lucky Lucarno are others to keep an eye on.

Cash Again has to be respected following his comfortable 2m3f course success, but the runner-up has subsequently let that form down and conceding 12lb to other last-time-out scorer INSTANT REPLAY is a big enough ask. Brian Ellison's charge did the job nicely on his chase debut over a couple of furlongs shorter here and a 4lb rise looks fair enough with any amount of improvement to come. Romulus Du Donjon is a dual hurdles scorer and, like many of the stable's runners before him, could potentially improve for this switch to fences.

DELEGATE was an impressive winner of a novice chase at Musselburgh eight days ago, on his first start since a wind operation, and his new mark over fences is 141. The three-times hurdles winner looks to exploit a 14lb lower rating over the smaller obstacles here and he appears to be the one to beat. Craig Star has been in good form of late and has to be respected and Ninepointsixthree is another to consider.
