FRAMPTON made a winning start to life over hurdles when returning from a break at Uttoxeter and gets a tentative vote for a yard in excellent nick. Blaklion also hit the ground running with a gutsy success at Perth, justifying odds of 4/9, and clearly deserves plenty of respect. The only mare in the line-up Supreme Present was behind a couple of subsequent winners at Newton Abbot and may have been freshened up by a short break. The returning pair of Present View, winner of a Listed chase at the Festival here, and Vicente, an unexposed contender for the champion trainer, are worth monitoring for support in the betting.

The early signs were positive for COURT MINSTREL at Newton Abbot, where he produced a sound round of jumping to score on his chasing debut, and he looks the one to side with under penalty. Thomas Crapper loves it at this track, though, as proven by his record over hurdles here last term and may be able to make a winning start to life over the bigger obstacles. Chris Pea Green is another contender who boasts some decent form over timber and has to enter calculations.

Henryville has left a favourable impression on his two starts since a summer break, winning a competitive Newton Abbot event before following up at Fontwell last time, and a 7lb conditional jockey negates most of a 9lb hike in the weights. Preference, however, is for ON THE BRIDGE as although he trailed that rival in Devon, he is on the right side of a 14lb swing in the weights and will appreciate this step up in trip. Abolitionist is 4lb 'wrong' but his up-and-coming conditional jockey cancels that out and he looks an interesting Irish raider, likewise for Clara Mc Cloud who was runner-up at Gowran Park last time.

Strong-travelling front runner but stays well, posting a very useful effort to complete the hat-trick at Ascot in January. Midfield in Mares' event at the Festival and an interesting chase debutante.

Winner of five hurdle races from 2m 6f to 3m on ground varying from good to heavy. Beaten 8l behind Quevega at 14-1 when eighth of 16 on her latest outing in a Grade 2 hurdle race here over 2m 4f (good to soft) in March.

HIGHLAND RETREAT made plenty of progress over hurdles last term and gets the nod on her first effort over fences. Harry Fry's inmate won on her reappearance last term, so a 220-day absence isn't especially off-putting, and she is a former point winner so fencing could be her game. The Romford Pele is an attractive alternative, though, as he was last sighted winning the Summer Cup at Uttoxeter and has run well at Prestbury Park in the past. Lamb Or Cod scored here in April and completes the shortlist after some decent efforts in the summer.

Useful on the Flat for Mark Johnston and took well to hurdling last term despite looking quirky, not beaten far in 4-Y-O Grade 1 at Aintree. Sets a good standard with headgear left off on return.

Placed in a hurdle race from three NH starts. Finished 5l behind Guitar Pete when fourth of 15 at 16-1 on his latest outing in a Grade 1 hurdle race in the Group 1 Anniversary 4-Y-O Juvenile Hurdle at Aintree over 2m 1f (good) in April.
