Seemed stretched for stamina when placed twice over C&D towards the end of 2017 but interesting that good stable perseveres at this trip back from a short break.

A winner of a NH flat race at 2m on heavy ground, but that win was over two years ago. Beaten 28l by Innisfree Lad when second of 7 at 3-1 on her latest outing in a hurdle race over this course and distance (heavy) in December last year.

Sahara Haze looked on good terms with herself when scoring over 3m2f at Warwick last time but she's 8lb higher now dropping back in distance. It might be worth taking a chance on MOZO, who landed a heavy-ground bumper here on debut and hinted she was on a workable hurdles mark when second over C&D last time. Frosty Dawn makes some appeal on her Southwell second in February and makes most appeal of the remainder.

BIG RIVER returned to winning ways over a similar trip at Kelso last time and the form of that contest was boosted when the second, Shantou Flyer, finished runner-up in the Ultima at Cheltenham this week. Lucinda's Russell's eight-year-old is a winner on heavy ground and is expected to give a good account back in a handicap. Recent Warwick scorer Solighoster and hat-trick seeker Looksnowtlikebrian look best of the rest.

OVERTOWN EXPRESS is on a 2lb lower hurdles mark than when scoring over fences at Newbury in December and hinted his winning turn was approaching when filling the runner-up spot at Chepstow last time out. Fleminport has struck in maiden and novice hurdles the last twice and appears fairly treated off a mark of 127 now going handicapping. The pick of the remainder may be recent Newbury second Theligny, who has a 4lb rise to contend with, and the likeable Clyne.

Has really come of age over fences, completed the hat-trick in 9-runner handicap at Lingfield (28.8f) last time, finding plenty. This asks for more, but he's a progressive and likeable sort.

He has won a hurdle race and three chases from 2m 4f to 3m 5f on ground varying from good to soft to heavy. A winner at 13-2 in a chase at Lingfield over 3m 5f (heavy) on his latest outing last month, beating Petite Power by 1/2l. Has won 3 times this season.

The Artful Cobbler, who is on a four-timer, continues to go well for Henry Daly and his rating has gone up 20lb since the end of November. He has proven form in testing conditions and sneaks in here off bottom weight, while Rowland Meyrick winner Get On The Yager didn't appreciate a drop in distance around a sharp track at Southwell last month and should find this test of stamina more sufficient. 2016 runner-up Milansbar likes it here and the Classic Chase winner is 3lb lower than when runner-up two years ago. Silsol confirmed his liking for a stamina test when fifth in the Welsh Grand National, while Bob Ford is likely to have had this as his target for some time making just his third start for Dr Richard Newland. Preference, however, is for WESTERN CLIMATE at a big price. Twice a winner this season before a solid fourth behind Ms Parfois (second in the National Hunt Chase) and Big River (winner of a valuable Kelso event last month and a runner earlier on this card) at Warwick last time, the booking of 3lb claimer James Bowen catches the eye and he looks set to run a big race for Tom Weston.

Decent sort with 1 win each in point to points, bumpers, and hurdles at Newcastle in late January. Not beaten far at the same track last time when looking one-paced and may do better over three miles.

He has won a hurdle race, a NH flat race and a point-to-point from 2m to 3m on soft ground. Beaten 1 1/2l by Planet Nine when second of 3 at 5-4fav on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Newcastle over 2m 6f (soft) last month.
