Paul Nicholls has won five of the last nine renewals and holds outstanding claims once more with new recruit SIR PSYCHO. Third in an Irish maiden on the Flat for Eddie Harty when last seen in April, the three-year-old has since joined the Ditcheat maestro and is sure to know his job ahead of this hurdling bow. Soft Summer Rain had been handed a fair opening handicap mark on the level so it is interesting to see her over hurdles, while Catch The Cuban is another to be interested in.

Diamond Guy has had a wind operation since completing a double at Ludlow 522 days ago and warrants a market check ahead of this return to action, while Teqany, winner of a class 2 Stratford event over hurdles last month, is another to be interested in. Louis' Vac Pouch has a big weight to carry on reappearance, and it might be worth siding with Colin Tizzard's HIGHEST SUN. He recorded some impressive efforts last season behind the likes of Didtheyleaveuoutto, Thomas Darby, and Al Dancer, and might still have a bit in hand off a mark of 136.

Lil Rockerfeller is yet to fully impress with his jumping over fences, though he did shape with greater promise at Southwell in August and won't mind this step up in distance. Ballyoptic and Royal Vacation both failed to complete when last seen during the spring, though the latter was second in a Grade 3 handicap at Cheltenham on his first start last season and makes some appeal on that evidence. It could be worth siding with RELENTLESS DREAMER, whose season was cut short last year. The 10-year-old is unexposed for his age and represents a yard that has made a fine start to the season.

RESERVE TANK was expertly brought to the boil over hurdles last term with his season ending with a pair of Grade 1 victories at Aintree and Punchestown in the spring. He looks an exciting prospect to take over the larger obstacles and could enhance Colin Tizzard's record in a race he has won with Cue Card and Finian's Oscar in the past. Secret Investor won the Persian War Hurdle at this meeting 12 months ago and was a winner of a Grade 2 over the larger obstacles at Ayr in the spring. He is just one half of a strong Paul Nicholls challenge, with the talented mare Posh Trish also engaged.
