GOOD NEWS returned from a 514-day break with a decisive victory over this course and distance last month and a 5lb rise in the ratings for that success may underestimate his ability. Pleney ran well in defeat at Hexham last time out and he could prove to be the main threat to the selection, ahead of First Assembly and Bluebell Sally.

REALLYRADICAL went close on his seasonal reappearance here when second before occupying the same position over this distance 25 days ago, but he has shaped with promise on both occasions and deserves to land one of these soon. The six-year-old is slowly creeping up in the weights, and can capitalise before his mark becomes too high. Battle Of Ideas returns from a break and won't mind this drop in trip, while Eclair De Guye was fifth at Southwell last month and is also taken seriously.

GOSHEN is rated 88 on the Flat and could make a winning debut over hurdles for last year's victorious yard. A half-brother to a Listed winner over hurdles, the three-year-old could be even better in this sphere and might have too much pace for French import Chez Hans. The latter won over 12 furlongs in his native country, and will likely pose a bigger threat to the selection than both Le Grand Rocher and Manucci.

COLONEL CUSTARD has the best form on offer having finished third in the Welsh Champion Hurdle at Ffos Las four weeks ago, and he should have come on markedly for that reappearance. The six-year-old was a progressive novice hurdler last season and, on recent evidence, has clearly done well over the summer. Song For Someone was deemed good enough to run in Grade 1 company at Aintree in April and can pose the biggest threat, just ahead of Betfair Hurdle fifth Ar Mest.

Fairly useful hurdler for Warren Greatrex who was strong at the finish when getting off the mark over fences for this yard at Sedgefield (29.2f) last month. Unexposed as a staying chaser.

Winner of two hurdle races, a NH flat race, a chase and a point-to-point from 2m to 3m 5f on ground varying from good to heavy. A winner at 13-2 in a chase at Sedgefield over 3m 5f (soft) on his latest outing last month, beating Chasma by 4l.

Fairly useful hurdler/chaser for Gordon Elliott for all consistency wasn't his strong suit. Yard debut effort at Fakenham (3m) in October was disappointing and others appeal more.

He has won a hurdle race, a NH flat race and a point-to-point from 2m to 3m on good and soft - heavy ground. Well beaten at 7-1 behind Redzor when last of 5 on his latest outing in a chase at Fakenham over 3m (good) last month.

Rejuvenated for new yard this summer, landing a 25.7f mares' handicap at Newton Abbot in July prior to a trio of runners-up efforts. Consistency an obvious plus but her mark is creeping up.

Winner of two hurdle races and five chases from 2m 3f to 3m 2f on ground varying from good to soft. Beaten 4l by The Caller when second of 10 at 6-1 on her latest outing in a chase at Sedgefield over 3m 5f (soft) last month.

Showed improved form to open account over fences in 11-runner handicap chase at Exeter (30.7f, soft) back in April. Shaped as if his return at Wincanton would bring him on, and he's also low-mileage.

Successful in a hurdle race and a chase at 2m 7f and 3m 7f on good to soft ground. Well beaten at 4-1 behind Wandrin Star when fifth of 10 on his latest outing in a chase at Wincanton over 3m 3f (good) last month.

Shanroe Santos won this race 12 months ago and he has to be respected off just a 1lb higher mark, although he has not had a prep run this year. With that in mind, preference is for THE CALLER, who beat Chasma in the Durham National last month. A 6lb rise for that victory appears to be fair and he should not have a problem handling this soft ground. The Two Amigos and Captain Cattistock both have plenty of weight to carry but they're talented performers who should not be underestimated.

Clear signs of ability in maiden/novice hurdles but made a very disappointing start to life in handicaps last winter, and could hardly have shown any less on chase debut/return at Chepstow.

Placed in a hurdle race and a NH flat race from 11 starts. Well beaten at 40-1 behind La Cavsa Nostra when 10th of 12 on his chase debut at Chepstow over 3m 2f (good to soft) last month.

Point winner who found just one too good in an Irish maiden hunter chase a year ago. However, has gone the wrong way since so plenty to prove. Headgear now fitted.

A winner of a point-to-point at 3m on good to soft ground. Pulled up at the 11th when 50-1 at Hereford over 2m 5f (good) in a chase won by Cuban Pete earlier this month on her latest outing.
