CHANTRY HOUSE justified his lofty reputation with an easy win in a Warwick bumper in March and is fancied to make up into a high-class hurdler for Nicky Henderson. The five-year-old likes some cut in the ground, and can prove too strong at the finish for Glory And Fortune, who didn't have much luck when third at Haydock in Listed company 20 days ago. Stolen Silver was a wide-margin winner at Ffos Las recently and is also noted.

Stoney Mountain won a competitive Grade 3 handicap over hurdles at Haydock last month and is interesting now trying out fences, while Rockpoint stayed on stoutly to finish second behind a talented rival on the old course here 27 days ago and should give another good account. Pym is developing into a smart staying chaser, but so is IMPERIAL AURA, and Kim Bailey's charge is fancied to land the spoils. In what was effectively a schooling session, he won at Fakenham last month and is fancied to build on that in this deeper affair.

Never Adapt was keen on her UK debut here 13 months ago and it is interesting that she returns to the same venue now trying handicaps for Nicky Henderson, while Oakley, third the last twice in competitive events, shouldn't be far away. Ecu De La Noverie had been due a victory and duly obliged at Wetherby recently, but this is tougher and a chance can be taken on CASWELL BAY. Second behind a useful operator at Chepstow in October, he is open to improvement and should appreciate the test of stamina that Cheltenham provides.

Building up a good record over fences, winning for the third time over the larger obstacles at Fakenham last month. That wasn't much of a race but has to be respected given her current form.

She has won a hurdle race and three chases from 2m to 3m on ground varying from good to soft. A winner at 13-8 in a chase at Fakenham over 3m (good) on her latest outing last month, beating Carnspindle by 3l. Has also won at Worcester this season.

Back-to-back winner last season and resumed progress after a breathing operation when making a winning return at Lingfield last month. 4 lb rise looks fair and should go well again.

Dual hurdles winner for Charlie Longsdon. Off the mark as a chaser in first-time blinkers/tongue strap in a weak handicap at Market Rasen last week and not an obvious type to follow up under penalty.

She has won two hurdle races and a chase from 2m 3f to 3m on good and soft ground. A winner at 7-1 in a chase at Market Rasen over 3m (soft) on her latest outing earlier this month, beating Cavalry Scout by 6l. Carries a 7lb penalty today for that success.

CHEQUERED VIEW impressed when winning over 3m at Fakenham last time and is expected to mount another bold bid now dropping back in distance. Definitelyanoscar has been knocking on the door and is the one expected to put up most resistance. The pick of the remainder may be Parlour Maid, who was having her first run following wind surgery when striking at Lingfield 24 days ago.
