ATAGUISEAMIX was a faller here on his latest start in a handicap but has shown enough to suggest a small contest of this nature is within his grasp. Ceyhan is open to progression having stayed on into fourth at Uttoxeter on his hurdling debut, while Malangen could bounce back to form on a sounder surface compared to his last couple of outings.

STOP THE WORLD has shown promise in his three outings over timber so far and looks to be on a fair mark as he takes the step into handicap company for the first time. There is also the likelihood of further improvement up in distance. Misty Bloom has been in solid form throughout the winter months and is respected, while Halloween Harry and Ballybough Nora complete the shortlist with the pair still relatively unexposed.

ESPOIR DE TEILLEE hasn't been out since romping to victory on his hurdles debut at Catterick in November 2017, but he remains an exciting prospect and could make his handicap mark of 135 look lenient. Esprit De Somoza won at Taunton when last seen and has to enter calculations despite a 5lb rise from the handicapper, while Ebony Gale is better than his last-start Newbury effort suggests.

Plenty of useful form over hurdles but is a chaser on looks and ran best race in this sphere when just failing to master Drumlee Sunset at Warwick last time. May do better still.

A winner of a hurdle race at 2m on good ground, but that win was over two years ago. Beaten a short head by Drumlee Sunset when second of 8 at 7-1 on his latest outing in a chase at Warwick over 2m 4f (good) last month.

Low-key return over hurdles but far better switched to larger obstacles, finding only one too good at Hereford (20.8f) earlier this month. That was an encouraging effort and worth considering.

A winner of a hurdle race at 2m 1f, but that win was over two years ago. Beaten 5l by Kings Monarch when second of 7 at 14-1 on his chase debut at Hereford over 2m 5f (good to soft) earlier this month.

Back on track over fences in recent weeks, capitalising on another good opportunity to complete a quick-fire hat-trick at Fontwell (19.5f, heavy) 18 days ago. However, this looks a lot more demanding.

Winner of two hurdle races and three chases from 2m 1f to 2m 3f on ground varying from good to heavy. Won on his latest outing in a chase when 7-5fav at Fontwell over 2m 3f (heavy) earlier this month, beating Mortens Leam by 2 3/4l. Has won 3 times this season.

CRACKING DESTINY might have taken a little time to come to hand, but he has rewarded connections' patience by winning two of his last three outings and remains open to further improvement. Saintemilion can take a step forward from his chasing debut where he was second at Hereford earlier in the month, while dropping back from 3m could benefit Another Stowaway.

On a lenient mark and back in form recently, finding only a thriving sort too good in a race that's working out well at Chepstow almost 3 months ago. Excellent claims based on the strength of that.

He has won two hurdle races and two chases from 2m to 2m 4f on soft and heavy ground, but last win was over two years ago. Beaten 7l by Doitforthevillage when second of 11 at 17-2 on his latest outing in a chase at Chepstow over 2m 3f (soft) in December last year.

Has been going the wrong way for a while and arrives on the back of another sour display at Sandown, so unlikely to feature unless the first-time blinkers perk him up no end.

He has won two hurdle races and a chase from 2m 7f to 3m on ground varying from good to soft. Pulled up 4 out when 9-1 at Sandown over 3m (soft) in a chase won by Achille last month on his latest outing. He is wearing blinkers for the first time.

Back over hurdles with an encouraging run at this track last month and has shaped on more than one occasion as if there's a big effort in him over fences, so makes plenty of appeal from good mark.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m and 2m 1f on heavy ground, but last win was over three years ago. Finished 8l behind Flemcara when sixth of 13 at 14-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race here over 2m 7f (good to soft) last month.

Switch to chasing sparked a revival in form when runner-up at Huntingdon in January and in the process of running well again when brought down at Ludlow later in the month. One to note.
