DARGIANNINI couldn't have been more impressive in winning his bumper at Sedgefield in October by 20 lengths. Despite being the only member of the field not to boast any hurdling experience, Harry Whittington's gelding is a half-brother to Keeper Hill, who was a Listed winner as a novice hurdler, and he is taken to confirm the impression left on debut. Mackenberg needs to jump with more fluency than he did at Wetherby, while a more positive ride should see Straw Fan Jack to best effect over a shorter trip.

DASHING PERK shaped as though he needed his first run of the season when fourth in a higher grade to Modus (runs in the 3.15) over C&D last month and the nine-year-old, who won second time out at Sandown last term, makes plenty of appeal off a 1lb lower mark. The Paddy Pie stepped forward considerably from his hurdles return at Wetherby when third at the same course over fences last month and he has to enter calculations along with Quoi De Neuf, who finished second over C&D on his chasing debut.

MINT CONDITION knuckled down well to score by a neck at Bangor last month and is expected to remain competitive following a 5lb rise in the ratings. Glinger Flame returned to the winner's enclosure at Hexham last time to take his record to 4-6 over timber and may well have further improvement left in his locker, while there could be better to come from Navajo Pass now he's handicapping and it would come as no surprise to see Captain Tom Cat land a fourth hurdles victory of 2020.
