QUEL DESTIN has gained hurdling experience in France, running four times and winning at Auteuil in May before being gelded. He now debuts for Paul Nicholls and is expected to continue on an upward trajectory. Fanfan Du Seuil is another French recruit to monitor closely in the betting now debuting for Tom George, while it would come as no surprise to see Alan King's Flat winner Elysees make a winning introduction on his NH bow.

CHAMERON has only had one start for Paul Nicholls, finishing second of four in a novice chase at Exeter last November. However, he was a dual hurdles winner in France and he's undergone a wind operation in his time off the track, so he may well be capable of making up for lost time. Debece developed into a useful hurdler last year, finishing third in Grade 1 company at Aintree, and is interesting now debuting over fences. Minella Awards is another who could go well if transferring his best hurdles form over the larger obstacles.

Minella Warrior is unbeaten in two outings over hurdles, building on two promising bumper efforts behind the likes of Western Ryder and Kalashnikov. Kim Bailey's gelding won nicely after a break at Uttoxeter and has the potential for further improvement with a first-time tongue tie added. Coolanly finished last season with a good effort at Aintree and the step back up in trip won't prove any issue. However, a chance is taken with GOSHEVEN, who looked a slow burner for Philip Hobbs last season but shaped with plenty of encouragement in two novice hurdles at Kempton and Cheltenham. The fact his trainer is willing to step him up in grade underlines the regard he is held in, and this test looks perfect as he's a half-brother to staying chaser Vesper Bell.

ON TOUR's record fresh at the start of a new season reads 12121, which makes him appeal hugely once again for Evan Williams. He still looks fairly handicapped on his second to Thomas Patrick at Aintree, and it should be noted that he was travelling well off this mark at Newbury when unseating rider behind Gold Present last December. Bob Ford is likely to prove popular having won this contest 12 months ago - landing a gamble in the process - now running off a 4lb lower mark, while Kings Lad is considered as he bids for a hat-trick over fences.
