ASK FOR GLORY bids to continue the fine start to the campaign for Paul Nicholls having shown plenty of promise on both his hurdle outings last season. The six-year-old shaped as though he would benefit from a step up in trip when fourth at Newbury last November and proved that when scoring in easy fashion at Wincanton in February. This appears to be a suitable opportunity before a potential switch to fences once his novice status runs out at the end of next month. Does He Know won nicely at Ludlow earlier in the month and is open to further progression for a yard also in great form at present, while Finisk River, a dual winner during the summer, and Uttoxeter scorer Midnight River also command respect.

GALVIN finished a fine second to Imperial Aura in the novices' handicap at the Festival here and has begun this season by winning a trio of novice events in Ireland. Connections have already laid out their plans for next March and a clear round will ensure he qualifies for the National Hunt Chase. Soldier Of Love arrives having won four on the bounce and has to be respected, along with chasing debutant and Grade 2 winner over hurdles Mossy Fen, who didn't run too badly when fifth in the Ballymore behind Envoi Allen.

Nicky Henderson boasts a strong hand with his two runners, Fix Sun and HIJACK, who are both lightly raced and open to further progression. Preference of the pair goes to the latter as he already has a run under his belt this season, finishing runner-up at Fontwell, and is bred to improve with time being a half-brother to Village Vic. Our Power ended last season with victory at Kempton and could have more to offer despite a 6lb rise. Hometown Boy, who showed promise last season when chasing home McFabulous on his penultimate outing at Market Rasen, and the hat-trick seeking Captain Tom Cat are feared most of the remainder.
