Calva D'Auge won on the Flat in his native France and made a successful stable debut for Paul Nicholls at Plumpton earlier this month, although that company looked modest and he will need to take a step forward in this event. Young Lieutenant showed potential at Newbury last time when attempting to make all, but might just be done for speed at this venue and the vote instead goes the way of Tom Lacey's GLORY AND FORTUNE. A Listed bumper winner at Cheltenham, the four-year-old scored with something to spare on his hurdles debut at Huntingdon 39 days ago, and could take some stopping with that experience under his belt.

Kim Muir fourth CRIEVEHILL impressed when winning on his reappearance at Wetherby last month for Nigel Twiston-Davies and could defy a 7lb rise. The seven-year-old won't mind this step up in distance and, assuming the rain stays away, is fancied to prove too hot to handle for veteran Burtons Well, who showed a nice attitude to strike at Aintree last time out. Singlefarmpayment goes well fresh but seems to save his best for Cheltenham, while Ami Desbois has dropped to a tempting mark and is interesting down in class.

Midnight Shadow was travelling with intent before falling at Carlisle 12 days ago and would be a threat here if that hasn't dented his confidence, while Keeper Hill showed some nice form over hurdles last season and was a Grade 2 winner in this sphere two years ago as a novice chaser. Preference, though, is for Fergal O'Brien's JARVEYS PLATE, whose success over Reserve Tank at Chepstow was boosted when the latter landed a Grade 2 at Wincanton earlier this month. The selection jumped well that day and this extra yardage is expected to bring about further improvement.

Useful hurdler/chaser for Dan Skelton but well beaten in 3 starts (2 Flat, 1 hurdle) for new yard and can only be watched at present.

Fairly useful ex-Irish hurdler. Excellent first effort for new yard when second at Hexham last month and stamina possibly stretched by 3m back there since (likely still in form).

Two novice hurdle wins in 2017/18. Good second in 2m course handicap last December. Pulled up at Aintree in the spring but possible a subsequent wind op could have had a positive effect.

KATESON struggled on decent ground in top novice hurdles towards the back end of last season but he could be very well handicapped off a mark of 141. Last December Tom Lacey's gelding only found Champ and Getaway Trump too good in the Grade 1 Challow Novices' Hurdle and his chances would only increase if any rain arrived. Project Bluebook was running well when his rider took the wrong course at Wetherby last month and has to be respected, although he would want the rain to stay away. Others to note are Irish Roe, Honest Vic and Whoshotthesheriff.
