Proved well suited by the step up to 20f when running out a ready winner at Fakenham last month. This stiffer test should suit him just as well and he has leading claims.

Successful in a hurdle race and a NH flat race at 2m and 2m 4f on good and good to soft ground. Won on his latest outing in a hurdle race when 8-11fav at Fakenham over 2m 4f (good to soft) in December last year, beating dead-heaters Three Bullet Gate and Copper Gone West by 10l. Has won twice at Fakenham this season.

Trixster has won two of his last three including a narrow success at Chepstow last time. The highest rated in the field on official figures, he has to be given a chance, but SKANDIBURG may have more scope for improvement. Olly Murphy's gelding got off the mark at the second attempt over timber when running riot at Fakenham and shaped as though the step up to this trip would suit. Stoney Rover followed a Hexham win with a second at that Northumberland venue and is evidently in the form to have his say.

This could be between the two penalised horses, with ENCORE CHAMPS preferred over Lord Yeats. The latter won nicely at Sedgefield last time but was well beaten by Warren Greatrex's charge when they met off level weights at Wetherby. The selection has since been beaten heavily in Grade 2 company at Ascot but should find this level more to his liking. Rollerruler showed up well despite his huge odds here last time and may be best of those without a penalty, but his form is a long way short of the two principals.

Former Coral Cup winner Diamond King didn't really live up to his initial promise over fences for Gordon Elliott, but he showed glimpses of his best over timber last term and perhaps a change of scenery might help him. Both The Herds Garden and Diocese won on their latest starts but are out of the handicap so are both running off 17lb higher in this, so preference is for PRINCE CHARMIN'. Twice a winner over timber in Ireland for Tony Martin, his form had been poor before switching to Tim Vaughan but a couple of spins on the all-weather have appeared to spark him back to life.

Dimple made it two out of two this season with an emphatic success over timber here last time but is up 13lb here, while Rock On Fruity has a 9lb hike to contend with following his smooth success over slightly shorter at Newcastle. Eureu Du Boulay is evidently improving and could be worth a try in this company, but this could go the way of MOUNT MEWS. A fair 10th in the Coral Cup last year when with the Jeffersons, he won a Grade 2 over timber here by 49 lengths back in the day and has room for improvement over fences as he makes his debut for Donald McCain.

Winning pointer but form over hurdles/fences has been most underwhelming.

A winner of a point-to-point at 3m, but that win was over two years ago. Well beaten at 12-1 behind Troubled Soul when last of 7 on her latest outing in a chase here over 2m 6f (good) in November last year.

Promise on all 3 starts for new yard, tanking through most of the race when third at Newcastle (16.5f, good to soft) last time. Definitely capable of winning off her mark.

Placed in three hurdle races from 11 starts. Third of 9 behind Copt Hill beaten 1 3/4l at 5-4fav on her latest outing in a hurdle race at Newcastle over 2m (good to soft) in December last year.

CHOOCHOOBUGALOO was disappointing when beaten by a couple of outsiders as a short-priced favourite at Newcastle but the performance wasn't as much of a letdown as it first appeared because the winner has gone well again subsequently, and the runner-up has since gone one better. Sam England's mare is given another chance but Irish raider Bracka Lily bounced back to form at Down Royal and is a big danger, and Rose's In The Rain is interesting on her first appearance for Donald McCain.

Useful, though inconsistent, handicap chaser for Harry Fry. Too free back over hurdles starting out for this yard after 6 months off at Chepstow over Christmas but should have come on for that.

Has won four hurdle races and four chases from 2m 3f to 2m 6f on good and good to soft ground. Well beaten at 40-1 behind Virginia Chick when 9th of 10 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Chepstow over 3m (soft) in December last year.

Small fields over fences seem to suit him and he resumed winning ways at Doncaster (26f) last month, beating just 2 rivals. Has a career-high mark to overcome now.
