FLIC OU VOYOU, a regular at the business end without getting his head in front last season, has been in top form since reappearing following wind surgery at Chepstow in October. His handler Paul Nicholls won this two years ago and the six-year-old is backed to take his winning tally for the season to four here. The form of Do Your Job's nine-length Ayr victory over Cadzand got a timely boost when that rival won at Warwick earlier this week and Michael Scudamore's hat-trick seeker has to be taken seriously. Llandinabo Lad and Severance also caught the eye when scoring lately, with the latter also possessing a fine record on the Flat.

Went backwards from a successful debut for this stable last year but it might be that fresh is the time to catch him nowadays, so could return to form back from 8 months off.

He has won two hurdle races and a chase from 2m 4f to 3m on soft and heavy ground. Pulled up 2 out when 100-1 in the Group 3 Ultima Handicap Chase at Cheltenham over 3m 1f (soft) in a Grade 3 chase won by The Conditional in March on his latest outing.

Winner of three hurdle races and two NH flat races from 2m to 2m 4f on good and good to soft ground, but last win was over three years ago. Beaten 16l by Shan Blue when second of 4 at 15-2 on her latest outing in a chase at Wetherby over 3m (good to soft) last month.

Often a gruelling contest, this can go the way of Warren Greatrex's dour stayer BOB MAHLER, who was third in this 12 months ago and is only 1lb higher than when a good third in the Kim Muir at the Cheltenham Festival. He was disappointing on his reappearance last month but will have appreciated that pipe-opener and has been given a wind operation since, which can bring him back to his best. Deise Aba was fifth in that Prestbury Park contest in March and before that was a dual winner, while Newtide was another to see his winning run end at Cheltenham but could bounce back and have a big say here. The form of Secret Reprieve's brief exposure to fences stands up well and he could prove leniently treated joining the handicap ranks off a mark of 130, with Snow Leopardess another looking unexposed over the larger obstacles and she has lost little in defeat against some useful operators so far this season.

When Master Tommytucker gets it right, as he did when a cosy 12-length scorer at Huntingdon earlier this month, he is a joy to watch bowling along from the front and must have a great chance in a race his handler has won six times in the last 10 years. However, the long home straight could allow the course-and-distance winner DASHEL DRASHER to hunt him down late on and make a winning reappearance. Jeremy Scott's seven-year-old was only three and a half lengths adrift of RSA winner Champ on his only other completed start over fences and could have plenty more to come following wind surgery. Good Boy Bobby did little wrong when making a winning return at Bangor and has to be respected, while Commanche Red was bitterly disappointing at Ascot last month but shouldn't be underestimated in first-time cheekpieces, with the pick of his 2019/20 form putting him in the mix here.
