Master Debonair has continued to go the right way, winning twice here over timber, and arrives on the back of a Grade 2 success just before Christmas. He's officially rated 5lb higher than SPORTING JOHN, but Philip Hobbs' gelding could not have been more impressive on both his starts over hurdles at Exeter and he promises to be suited by the step up in trip. Pipesmoker shaped with plenty of encouragement behind stablemate Chantry House at Cheltenham in a contest that has worked out and he isn't one to discount with the potential for more to come.

SAM BROWN returned from over two years off the track to win impressively on his chasing debut at Lingfield and followed that effort up to land a Grade 2 at Haydock in great style. The step back up in distance can only suit the eight-year-old, with testing conditions firmly in his favour, and he could prove too strong for Pym, who has stepped forward since tackling 3m and upwards on his last couple of starts, and Copperhead, who warrants his place in the field after a smooth display at Newbury over the Christmas period.

Jepeck has enjoyed a fine season having landed the Veterans' Final at Sandown on his latest start where the 11-year-old was value for further than the winning margin after being impeded by a loose horse in the closing stages. Regal Encore landed his third big C&D success when taking the Silver Cup for the second time just before Christmas and the veteran can enter the reckoning off a 4lb higher mark, but the vote goes to VALTOR. He is just 2lb higher than his UK debut when storming clear with the 2018 Silver Cup and a 3lb drop for a solid effort at Taunton might prove to be lenient.

Connections of EDEN DU HOUX presumably began the season with Cheltenham aspirations - and he is still in a couple of the big novice races at the Festival - but he fluffed his lines on his first couple of hurdles runs. A wind operation did the trick, though, because he dug deep at Chepstow and victory here off a decent mark could book him his Prestbury Park ticket. The Con Man is progressing well and heads a large list of dangers that also includes 2017 winner Air Horse One, his stablemate Jolly's Cracked It and consistent juvenile Nordano.
