ALLMANKIND tasted defeat for for the first time when third in the Triumph Hurdle, paying the price for trying to burn his rivals from the front. The Grade 1 winner, who plugged on gamely up the hill once headed on that occasion, sets the standard in this, and the form of the Dan Skelton stable suggests the course-and-distance winner could be set for a bold bid. Botox Has chased home the selection when they met over track and trip last season and subsequently scored impressively on the new course in December, while Nordano demolished a smart field in handicap company at Ascot when last seen and is well worth his place in this line-up. Paul Nicholls won this 12 months ago and saddles Stratagem, who accounted for the well-regarded Solo at Auteuil on debut and impressed for this handler at Kelso in February. Irish raider Anna Bunina represents the yard that won this in 2018 and is another to note.

NOT THAT FUISSE, a runner-up to Al Dancer at this meeting last season, finished his first term over fences by chasing home On The Slopes at Kempton and built on that effort when making a winning reappearance at Perth. He accounted for some useful rivals on that occasion and could continue his progression here. Southfield Stone was second in the Grade 2 Pendil Novices Chase when last seen and is respected following wind surgery, while Pileon went down by just a short head at the Cheltenham Festival and is an interesting recruit to the chasing ranks.

Took handicap record to 3-4 when justifying strong market support at Perth (3m) last month. Won going away in that steadily-run contest and there's surely more to come as his stamina is drawn out.

He has won three hurdle races from 2m 5f to 3m on good ground. Won on his latest outing in a hurdle race when 13-8fav at Perth over 3m (good) last month, beating Jack Devine by 3 1/2l. Runs from 1lb out of handicap.

One-time smart performer but nothing like the force of old in France this season, including a well-held fourth in Auteuil handicap last weekend. Surely firmly up against it from 9 lb out of handicap.

Winner of two hurdle races and five chases from 1m 7f to 2m 4f on good and good to soft ground. Finished 18l behind Bahia Des Obeaux when fourth of 15 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Auteuil over 2m 3f (heavy) earlier this month.

Tobefair is only 3lb higher than when landing this last season and the 10-year-old, who has a great record here, acquitted himself well in graded company in the second half of last season. He has to be on the radar with the handy Jack Tudor taking over in the saddle to remove 5lb. Hat-trick seeking pair I'd Better Go Now and Neville's Cross are also towards the top of the shortlist, the latter a facile 20-length winner at Hereford last time. However, preference is for Flinck, who stayed on well to take third in the Silver Trophy earlier this month and could strike now stepped up in trip off the same mark. Champagne Court finished second in that Chepstow contest last year before embarking on a highly respectable novice chase campaign and is interesting switching to timber here, while Lock's Corner has gone back-to-back over fences recently and can't be ignored. At longer odds, Minella Warrior reverts to hurdles off his last winning mark, with Neil Mulholland's Kansas City Chief also offering value having run a huge race for a long way in the Pertemps Final off a 5lb higher mark and should be sharper for his Uttoxeter reappearance earlier this month.

Struggled in Ultima at the Festival here on final start last season but back to form when second at Warwick on return, proving stamina for this trip. Up against it from out of handicap here, though.
