Eclair De Guye kept on well in the closing stages when striking off 3lb lower over the extended 2m5f at Fontwell but, over this slightly shorter trip, preference is for distance winner NATIVE ROBIN. Jeremy Scott's nine-year-old rattled the crossbar over 2m4f at Wincanton last month and should remain competitive off the same mark. Francky Du Berlais is coming to the boil, and there may also be better to come from Dorking Cock now first-time cheekpieces are applied.

BLACKJACK KENTUCKY ran well for a long way from the front when second over the extended 2m3f here on his seasonal bow last month. He is expected to come on for that outing and improve for this step back up in distance. Donnie Brasco, third behind the selection latest, is feared most because Jepeck has to concede a penalty after landing a novice hurdle at Bangor, although he has viable place claims all the same.

The hat-trick seeking Juge Et Parti has to be given plenty of consideration stepping up to three miles again, while Accordingtogino has placed over track and trip on both outings this season and commands plenty of respect for a top operation. However, preference is for MONTANNA, who was not beaten far behind Champers On Ice at Ffos Las last time. The winner that day has since scored impressively at Newbury so a 1lb lower mark looks very generous for Peter Bowen's charge.

Useful hurdler who improved again for the switch to chasing last season, winning 2 of his 4 starts. Shaped as if needing his Wincanton return and duly stepped up on that when runner-up at Fontwell.

Winner of three hurdle races, two chases and a point-to-point from 2m 4f to 3m 2f on ground varying from good to heavy. Beaten a neck by One Of Us when second of 7 at 5-2fav on his latest outing in a chase at Fontwell over 3m 4f (soft) last month.

Winning Irish pointer back in 2017 but he's struggled with his jumping under Rules and doesn't make much appeal on handicap debut from well out of the weights.

A winner of a point-to-point at 3m, but that win was over two years ago. Well beaten at 100-1 behind Esprit Du Large when last of 6 on his latest outing in a chase at Exeter over 2m 3f (soft) last month.

It's a case of the further the better for CAPTAIN CATTISTOCK, who improved massively on his Wincanton reappearance when only beaten a neck in the Southern National at Fontwell, and he will appreciate the soft underfoot conditions. Lucy Turner's 7lb claim aids Calipto's chances and he ran with real credit in some hot contests last term, while C&D winner Another Venture makes plenty of each-way appeal.
