THE WOLF could have his supporters howling in delight on his first appearance since wind surgery as he looks to build on an encouraging 2019/20 campaign. He was twice on the scoresheet last term and finished the season with a respectable effort in the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. Thegallantway has 11lb to find on official ratings, but good ground will suit and Fergal O'Brien couldn't have his horses in any better form.

Winner of three hurdle races and two NH flat races from 2m to 2m 4f on good and good to soft ground, but last win was over three years ago. Beaten 9l by Boss Man Fred when second of 8 at 6-1 on her latest outing in a hurdle race at Doncaster over 3m (good to soft) in December last year.

COOL DESTINATION made the best possible return when scoring over timber here last month and could prove just as effective now turning his attention to fences, representing a yard in rude health. The Butcher Said impressed on his chasing debut at Southwell and lost little in defeat when not getting the clearest passage at Uttoxeter last time. His early exposure to the larger obstacles could prove vital here and he is likely to be thereabouts, while the best of Diomede Des Mottes' hurdles form sees him enter calculations on his fencing debut.

Fairly useful on Flat/over hurdles and back to form when a staying-on third at Market Rasen on penultimate start. However, failed to build on that next time and others look stronger here.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m and 2m 1f on good and good to soft ground. Finished 13l behind Jamacho when sixth of 8 at 14-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Stratford over 2m (good) earlier this month.

Quickly made into a useful chaser last season and good in-frame efforts upon returning in July. However, recent efforts haven't been overly inspiring and bounce back needed now reverting to hurdles.

Winner of five hurdle races from 2m to 2m 3f on good to firm and good ground. Well beaten at 12-1 behind Cracking Destiny when fifth of 9 on his latest outing in a chase at Perth over 2m 4f (good) earlier this month.

TEQANY has been in great form this summer and tasted success at Newton Abbot earlier this month. He was in total command during that victory and a 5lb rise may not be enough to stop the six-year-old here. Midnights' Gift acquitted herself well in Listed contests amongst her own sex last season and has been kept busy on the Flat of late, while Ask Himself was a winner on his most recent outing and is interesting reappearing off an 8lb higher mark. Donald McCain saddles a pair of course-and-distance winners in See The Sea and Beach Break, while El Borracho missed out on a ha-trick last time but can't be ignored looking to quickly bounce back.

LOCK'S CORNER won comfortably when returning to fences at Southwell last month and Jonjo O'Neill's gelding can handle a 10lb rise from the assessor as he attempts to make it four wins on the bounce. Dream Bolt has been in consistent form over the past couple of months and he can enter the reckoning along with Pogue, who is taken to bounce back having disappointed at Musselburgh in February.

FINISK RIVER arrives having won twice at Cartmel in August and the seven-year-old makes plenty of appeal with race-fitness on his side against his likely main rival Fugitives Drift. Nicky Henderson's gelding achieved a decent level of form earlier in the year and the step back up in trip on his reappearance might unlock further progression, while Polish and Firak are others who warrant respect.
