Dual hurdles winner who ended time with Dan Skelton in good form, albeit proving expensive to follow in filling runners-up spot on each of his last 3 starts in summer 2018. Makes debut for new yard.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m and 2m 1f on good ground, but last win was over two years ago. Beaten 1 3/4l by Dr Dunraven when second of 6 at 7-4fav on his latest outing in a chase at Southwell over 2m (good) in June last year. Having his first run for a new stable today.

Good chance his 4 runs over hurdles last season didn't get to the bottom of him and he has the physique to make a better chaser for red-hot yard. One to note.

Placed in two hurdle races from five starts. Well beaten at 13-2 behind Master Work when eighth of 13 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Warwick over 2m (good) in November last year.

TOPOFTHECOTSWOLDS has finished runner-up on three of his four starts over hurdles, but sets a very fair form standard and shouldn't be deterred by this drop down in distance. Nigel Twiston-Davies' charge might be suited by the switch to chasing and looks young enough at the age of five to continue his development now in this sphere. Grania O'Malley was a solid second at Uttoxeter over fences last time and has more experience than the selection, while Free Stone Hill is also noted.

Midnight Folie has won his last five races between the flags but faces a different sort of test now under Rules for Tim Vaughan, while Dawnieriver (third) found Silent Steps (first) too good when last seen at Southwell in December. The latter hasn't been disgraced in a few starts since, but preference is for Dai Williams' MRSROBIN. The nine-year-old has dropped to a fair mark of 95 after a decent third at Warwick three weeks ago and looks poised to go close now upped markedly in trip.

BETWEEN THE WATERS drops back in trip after a mediocre effort at Ludlow when last seen 31 days ago, and could bounce back if in the same sort of form that saw him score at Southwell just a few days previously. A mark of 105 remains on the generous side and he is fancied to account for recent Stratford third Cillian's Well. Equus Flight looks to be the first pick of Peter Bowen's two runners and could improve for the application of first-time blinkers.

A 3m winner at Ludlow in April, Young Wolf failed to justify favouritism when dropped back to 2m6f at Cartmel last month and he's competing over an even shorter distance this afternoon. Preference is for CLEVER AS A FOX, who scored with plenty in hand over this trip at Worcester earlier in the month and should remain competitive now running with a penalty. Sunset Showdown could improve for the fitting of first-time blinkers and is another to consider.

Van Gogh Du Granit ran well off a 5lb higher chase mark at Perth recently and has place possibilities, along with Aintree scorer Follow The Bear.
