Useful hurdler/ chaser at one time but little worthwhile form nowadays and likely up against it again on recent evidence.

Winner of four hurdle races and three chases from 2m to 2m 1f on good to firm and good ground, but last win was over two years ago. Well beaten at 9-1 when fourth of 5 on his latest outing in a chase at Leicester over 2m (heavy) earlier this month.

ASCENDANT is hard to oppose given his prolific record since the beginning of 2017. The veteran arrives here having won in this grade twice recently and the first of those victories came over 2m4f at this track back in January. Saucysioux is a threat according to official ratings but she does need to bounce back from a couple of poor efforts. The rest need to improve but Hurricane Rita is the pick of them.

AFTER ASPEN won on his debut for this yard over hurdles last month and it would be no surprise to see him to continue to improve. Twenty Eight Guns is an obvious threat having won over C&D last time out and a 5lb rise in the ratings for that success may appears to be on the lenient side. Both of Enjoy Responsibly and Mortens Leam have claims but the latter is marginally the pick of that pair.

The one that stands out is clearly WEEBILL, who arrives here with an official rating of 123 having made the frame in some very competitive novice/maiden hurdles earlier in the season. A reproduction of his second-placed finish at Warwick last month would make him extremely hard to beat this afternoon. The rest do not inspire too much confidence but Telegraph Place and Wisecracker look the best of them.

Step back in right direction when second over C&D in January but disappointing at Lingfield since. Return to this venue needs to spark him back to life.

He has won four chases from 2m 3f to 3m 4f on ground varying from soft to heavy. Pulled up 5 out when 7-1 at Lingfield over 3m 5f (heavy) in a chase won by The Artful Cobbler last month on his latest outing.

BORDEAUX BILL has won his last two starts including at the start of the month in a jumpers' bumper at Southwell which he was entitled to win being an odds-on favourite. His chase form has been promising so far and it would be a surprise were he not able to land the hat-trick. Potters Legend is well handicapped on the pick of his chase form but his jumping is a huge concern, while What Happens Now has been running well and is respected coming off a break.

Profile has a rather patchy look to it, but he won a C&D handicap in January and last month's Southwell flop may have come too soon. This is there for the taking.

Successful in a chase and a point-to-point at 2m 5f and 3m on heavy ground. Pulled up at the 10th when 7-4fav at Southwell over 2m 4f (soft) in a chase won by Normandy King last month on his latest outing.

Promise in qualifying hurdle outings, so disappointing he failed to progress for the switch to handicaps this winter. In frame all 3 starts in maiden points, so could do better over these obstacles.

Placed in a hurdle race and two point-to-points from 11 starts. Finished 18l behind Houndscourt when fourth of 14 at 6-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Southwell over 3m (soft) last month.

Long-standing maiden chaser who is very hard to fancy again from miles out of the weights.

A winner of a hurdle race at 2m 1f on soft ground, but that win was over five years ago. Last of 3 behind Tomngerry beaten a distance at 50-1 on his latest outing in a NH flat race at Southwell over 2m earlier this month.

WOOD PIGEON never travelled a yard when last seen at Southwell but that could have been due to the quick turnaround of only three days and a longer break between races can make the difference for this C&D winner. Heresmynumber has been running respectably of late and should be thereabouts, while Alpha Indi should get the better of The Society Man in the battle for third place.
