Long-standing maiden in Ireland early in his career but much more like it in the pointing field, winning last 3 completed starts (in front when falling last time). Should be a big factor.

Winner of six point-to-points at 3m on firm and good ground. Fell when 5-4fav at Bratton Down over 3m (good to firm) in a point-to-point race won by Namako in June on his latest outing. Having his first run for a new stable today, previously with J W Tudor.

BLACK ANTHEM has already proven his versatility in his opening three outings for Richard Newland, winning over both hurdles and fences, and having taken the rise to this sort of trip in his stride the last twice, is hard to oppose reverting to timber. C&D winner Brown Bear has made the podium here twice this summer and his knowledge of this venue could come to the fore, while prolific pointer Desert Roe is interesting on his first outing for Christian Williams.

HIGHLAND BOBBY thrived on his first outing for Olly Murphy, scoring comfortably at Southwell, and the four-year-old should have plenty more to come this time. Thaqaffa was a useful performer on the Flat and has shaped nicely in two starts over hurdles so far, while Archimento makes his first appearance for Oliver Sherwood following some handy tune-ups on the level recently.

The rise to 2m6f on soft ground saw Melody Of Scotland's hat-trick bid end in disappointment, but he could return to form with a sounder surface to bounce off. A drop back in trip may also suit C&D winner King Cool, who has just been falling short of late. However, it might pay to side with GATEWAY TO EUROPE, who has looked a winner in waiting since switching to hurdles and can thrive on his handicap debut.

DOWNLOADTHEAPP was off the mark over fences with an impressive six-length win at Stratford and a 7lb rise might not be enough to stop the six-year-old following up. Black Lightning was a beaten favourite when seeking to make it back-to-back victories at Worcester last time, but could bounce back now slightly down in distance. Taaffes Castle and Goldslinger are respected, with the latter not beaten far here over hurdles on his penultimate appearance.

Well beaten in bumpers. Better effort over hurdles since returning from long absence for new yard when fourth over 19f here in June but will need to step up again to go close.

Yet to place in five starts. Finished 12l behind Jaunty Soria when fourth of 9 at 66-1 on her latest outing in a hurdle race here over 2m 3f (good to soft) in June.

Danboru has thrived over both fences and hurdles of late and Tim Vaughan's eight-year-old has to be given plenty of consideration on his hat-trick mission. Monkey Puzzle was second over C&D last time, having won impressively at Southwell before that. However, preference is for WIN MY WINGS, who has placed on all three outings since thrashing the opposition at Ffos Las in April and seems sure to be involved once again.

NO NO CARDINAL can't stop winning this summer and the thriving veteran has to be seen as the one to side with once again having skipped off the fast ground at Newton Abbot last month. Camaplu was on the scoresheet at Stratford most recently and appears set for another prominent role following a 5lb rise, while King Cnut can't be ignored on his first start for Clare Hobson.
