Sole win came when trained in France but he did post plenty of creditable efforts last season. Will probably need to pull out some improvement to defy top weight on his return, though.

A winner of a chase at 2m 1f on soft ground, but that win was over two years ago. Beaten 5l by Exod'ela when second of 6 at 11-2 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Ludlow over 2m 5f (soft) in February.

Bumper winner Northern Poet has placed in a couple of novice hurdles this year and warrants respect entering handicap company for the first time, while Ask Henry also merits shortlist inclusion equipped with a first-time tongue-tie on his handicap bow. However, the vote goes to COLLEGE OAK as he didn't appear to get home over a longer trip at Newton Abbot last month and he is worth a chance having been dropped 2lb for that effort.

KNOWN certainly wasn't disgraced when third behind subsequent Supreme Novice winner Shishkin at Newbury in January and, despite the lengthy absence, makes plenty of appeal on his debut in handicap company. Riggs improved in each of his three starts at the beginning of the year and could be even better on his return from a break. He is shortlisted alongside Fifty Ball, Scene Not Herd and Straw Fan Jack, who are all race-fit and in form.

Fairly useful 21f winner over hurdles who wasn't disgraced on chasing bow when fourth of 7 in 21f handicap at Hereford 7 months ago. Needs to step forward now on his return.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m and 2m 5f on good and soft ground. Finished 15l behind Go Steady when fourth of 7 at 4-1 on his chase debut at Hereford over 2m 5f (soft) in March. Runs from 1lb out of handicap.

Falco Blitz and Republican certainly weren't disgraced when fifth and sixth respectively behind recent Persian War winner McFabulous in a Grade 3 hurdle at Kempton in March and they both warrant respect switching to fences for the first time. However, with both a recent run and chase experience under his belt, DR SANDERSON looks the one to beat. He was impressive when making a winning return at Plumpton earlier this month and a 7lb rise might not be enough to anchor him if arriving in the same mood.

Looked a 2m chaser on the up when readily landing a C&D handicap in November. Limited impact in graded company after but likely to be very well prepared for this reappearance.

Largely disappointing since his listed handicap win at Ayr in April 2019 but has tumbled in the weights and almost justified support from the front at Southwell in July. Well held twice since.

Winner of two hurdle races and five chases from 2m to 2m 1f on good and soft ground. Well beaten at 80-1 behind Rouge Vif when 11th of 13 on his latest outing in a chase at Cheltenham over 2m (good) earlier this month.

Defied huge absence (had wind op) to make winning chasing debut at Wincanton in January and easily followed up a month later. Excellent second final start and he retains potential this term.

CAPELAND would have certainly pushed stablemate Diego Du Charmil close in this race last year but for being forced out at the final fence and could claim a bit of compensation under Bryony Frost. The eight-year-old was successful at this venue last season, thumping the opposition by 12 lengths on soft ground off 7lb lower, and this looks a winnable renewal. Amoola Gold won at Wetherby on reappearance earlier this month and is respected alongside Flaminger, who warmed up for this with a battling success at Fontwell four weeks ago.
