BUSHYPARK went up 15lb for an easy success at Hexham last month when justifying market support and conditions appear ideal for him to back that performance up, with the flatter track to help him see out the step up in distance. Wazowski wasn't at his best when fourth at Bangor last time and is respected along with J'Ai Froid, who sports cheekpieces on his first start since March 2019.

TORN AND FRAYED appeared to need his first run of the season when fourth at Aintree in October and the step up in distance may unlock further progression from Nigel Twiston Davies' gelding. Buzz De Turcoing has come up against some smart novices throughout his career and is of interest following his third at Wetherby in October, while the switch to Dr Richard Newland's stable might see Roman Rock improve.

DOC PENFRO made a pleasing start to life over the larger obstacles when chasing home The Big Breakaway at Cheltenham last month and the eight-year-old is capable of building on that effort with the drop back in trip unlikely to faze him. Redford Road had excuses when disappointing at Newbury, having been struck into, and he retains the potential to be decent over fences, while Espoir De Romay has to enter the reckoning despite carrying a 5lb penalty for his chasing debut success at Huntingdon.

QUALISMART won in nice style on his racecourse debut at Market Rasen and Harry Whittington's gelding is open to significant improvement with softer conditions unlikely to prove any issue to him. Adrimel's sole defeat came in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham and he made no mistake in getting off the mark over timber at the first attempt at Sandown last month, while Ranch Hand, rated 106 on the level, can improve from his hurdles debut success at Exeter as he is more likely to get a lead on this occasion.

Useful chaser at his peak and, having moved to Tom Symonds, looked back in top form when a strong-travelling second in a handicap chase at Uttoxeter on return. Fancied to go one better.

He has won a hurdle race, two chases and a point-to-point from 2m 3f to 3m on good to soft and soft ground, but last win was over two years ago. Beaten a head by Just Your Type when second of 10 at 3-1jt-fav on his latest outing in a chase at Uttoxeter over 3m 2f (good to soft) last month.

BURTONS WELL was successful on reappearance at Aintree last season and could repeat the trick for a yard coming into form now. The 11-year-old also struck when last seen in February at Doncaster and seems to have a bit more in the locker, despite his advancing years. Seeyouatmidnight beat recent Listed winner My Old Gold at Carlisle in March and makes some appeal for Sandy Thomson and Ryan Mania, who teamed up to win at Newcastle with Yorkhill last weekend. Indy Five was runner-up on his reappearance at Uttoxeter and is also noted on his second start for Tom Symonds.

Low-mileage hurdler who made light of 9-month absence to land 2m 5-runner course handicap last December. Evidently capable when fresh but this looks a deeper race.

He has won three hurdle races from 2m to 2m 4f on heavy ground. A winner at 11-2 in a hurdle race here over 2m (heavy) on his latest outing in December last year, beating Fin And Game by 1 1/4l.

Creditable efforts in his 3 outings last term but beaten long before stamina should have been an issue in 3m Ayr handicap on reappearance. Needs to leave that run well behind.

He has won two hurdle races and two NH flat races at 2m on soft and heavy ground, but last win was over two years ago. Pulled up at the last when 15-2 at Ayr over 3m (heavy) in a hurdle race won by Justatenner in October on his latest outing.

Dual 2m Ludlow novice winner last term. Better still when second in 19f Fontwell handicap on return and it's perhaps worth giving him the benefit of the doubt for a lesser run at Cheltenham since.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m on soft ground. Well beaten at 11-2fav behind Captain Tom Cat when 18th of 19 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Cheltenham over 2m 5f (good) in October.
