Plenty of creditable efforts last term but very tricky to win with and probably best opposed for win purposes again.

He has won four hurdle races from 2m to 2m 5f on ground varying from good to firm to good to soft, but last win was over three years ago. Finished 18l behind Count Simon when fifth of 7 at 9-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Perth over 2m 4f (good to soft) in April.

DANCING DOUG has posted a couple of solid efforts in defeat since joining the Philip Kirby team and this represents a fantastic opportunity for him to open his account. Sky Khan warrants plenty of respect dropped in class with his handicap rating continuing to fall, while Stop Talking is capable if not consistent. The forecast soft ground certainly won't bother her.

MUST SEE THE DOC was rated as high as 83 during his Flat days for Iain Jardine and looks the one to beat first time over hurdles for the Skeltons. His two best efforts on the level came with give underfoot so tonight's conditions should be ideal. Like the selection, both War Eagle and Glorious Dane managed to get their nose in front on the Flat and they warrant respect on their NH debut.

Seemed perked up by a change of headgear when gaining his second chase success at Uttoxeter but revised mark too much for him since. Will find this less competitive at least.

MINELLA DADDY has impressively notched a Haydock/C&D double and, despite a further 6lb rise, he is fancied to complete the hat-trick. Minellacelebration also boasts winning track-and-trip form and was last seen winning the Staffordshire Plate at Uttoxeter 13 months ago. Despite the absence, he rates the biggest threat ahead of Tanarpino and Lofgren, who both ran well below expectations last time out.

Highly progressive over fences last summer. However, his hurdle mark has also gone up on the back of that good run over fences and perhaps best watched after 6 months off.

He has won two hurdle races and a NH flat race from 2m to 2m 4f on ground varying from good to soft. Pulled up 3 out when 7-2 at Uttoxeter over 2m 4f (soft) in a hurdle race won by Burrows Park in December last year on his latest outing.

GROVEMAN went close to gaining his second victory over timber at Southwell 10 days ago and is able to run off the same mark on this occasion, which makes him 2lb well-in and he gets the nod again. Nayati has been consistent on his last couple of outings for Donald McCain and is entitled to be in the mix once again, while Borak could improve from his first start this year at Ffos Las.

ASHOKA defied a 12-month absence to score on his return at Southwell and a 4lb rise from the handicapper may not be enough to stop Dan Skelton's gelding from doubling up. Capital Force won his first outing over fences for Martin Keighley at Ludlow and could have further progression to come, while Theflyingportrait has dropped to a mark 1lb lower than his last victory at Wetherby last November.
