Off mark in Irish points at third attempt in March and looked very useful when slamming the opposition on Rules debut here a month ago. Up in trip and the one to beat under a penalty.

Successful in a hurdle race and a point-to-point at 2m 3f and 3m on good and heavy ground. A winner at 10-3 in a maiden hurdle race here over 2m 3f (heavy) on his latest outing last month, beating Hardy Articos by 20l.

Unbeaten in Irish points and left hurdling efforts in his wake when landing brace of handicaps over fences around 3m. Unseated rider in the NH Chase and has to be capable of better over timber.

Winner of two chases and three point-to-points at 3m on ground varying from good to heavy. Unseated rider when 7-1 in the Group 2 National Hunt Challenge Cup Amateur Riders' Novices' Chase at Cheltenham over 3m 6f (soft) in a Grade 2 chase won by Ravenhill in March on his latest outing.

OSCAR ELITE had won between the flags prior to joining Colin Tizzard and then made a winning start to his career under Rules when running away with a maiden hurdle over an extended 2m3f here last month. He's expected to see out this longer trip and defy a penalty this afternoon as he has match fitness on his side and his two rivals, Is A Real Champ and Springfield Fox, both have absences to overcome.

Looked better than ever in landing back-to-back small-field handicaps in recent weeks, latterly at Ffos Las (19.4f) 6 days ago. Fancied to give it his best shot again in hat-trick bid.

Fairly useful winning chaser at his best. Lightly raced in last couple of years but highlighted he still has something to offer when 8 lengths third on return at Ayr in October. May be sharper now.

Winner of a hurdle race, a NH flat race and four chases from 2m to 2m 1f on good to soft and heavy ground, but last win was over two years ago. Third of 8 behind Drumconnor Lad beaten 8l at 16-1 on his latest outing in a chase at Ayr over 2m (heavy) in October.

Regained winning thread at Sedgefield (26f) 12 months ago but not at his best when last seen at Catterick (25f) in February. However, has gone well fresh in the past so certainly not ruled out.

Sole career success came back in 2015 but he did shape as if back in form before crashing out 3 out over fences at Thurles (18f) in October. Interesting what the market makes of him for new yard.

A winner of a hurdle race at 2m 4f on good ground, but that win was over five years ago. Fell 4 out when 12-1 at Thurles over 2m 2f (yielding) in a chase won by Steer Clear in October on his latest outing. Having his first run for a new stable today.

LE COEUR NET is turned out under a penalty for his victory over an extended 2m3f at Fontwell last weekend and rates the one to beat in his current mood. Pistol Park returned to form on his first start following wind surgery when third at Ayr last time and could benefit from this step up in trip. This looks a more realistic assignment for Ostuni, who took on Fiddlerontheroof on his fencing bow at Exeter on his first run for Kayley Woollacott, so he's another for the shortlist.

GUSTAVIAN picked up the silver medal over 2m3f on his seasonal return at Fontwell and is expected to come on for that outing and find the improvement needed to score now stepping up in trip. Exploiteur has been hit with a lofty rise for slamming his rivals over 2m6f at Ffos Las but could remain competitive now granted this stiffer test. Any money for The Captains Inn, who returns from a long absence, would also be notable.

LAMANVER PIPPIN ran a fine race on reappearance at Cheltenham three weeks ago on ground that wasn't quite soft enough for him and is taken to relish this test. The seven-year-old remains on a fair mark despite going up 4lb for that last time, and could find extra improvement for the application of first-time cheekpieces. The C&D scorer is preferred ahead of The Two Amigos, who also relishes a test of stamina and kept on well when third over 3m at Bangor-on-Dee last month. Jepeck is fancied to do better after being pulled up at Sandown four weeks ago, while Bobo Mac has had a wind operation since last witnessed 263 days ago.
