Lightly-raced maiden on the Flat who left form of hurdling debut well behind when runner-up over C&D last month. Sets the standard on that effort, though not guaranteed to improve further.

Placed in a hurdle race from two starts. Beaten 1 1/2l by Beat The Judge when second of 11 at 16-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race over this course and distance (good to soft) in December last year.

Looks an interesting acquisition having shown ability in a French bumper 3 moths ago, so one to note in the betting on British debut for new stable.

Dam unraced. Beaten 3l by Frimousse Baie when second of 5 on his racecourse debut at Paray-Le-Monial over in September last year. Having his first run for a new stable today, previously with A Boisbrunet.

CHAPARRAL PRINCE went the right way after a wind operation when runner-up over C&D over the Christmas period and he looks open to further improvement in this sphere. Flaminger finished second on his sole outing in a French NH Flat race and is an interesting recruit to a stable that does well with juveniles, while Alan King inmates Tiffin Top and Running Cloud are both capable of better than they showed on their hurdling debuts.

LOMACHENKO benefited greatly from wind surgery as he got off the mark at the second time of asking over timber at Leicester over an extended 2m4f. The manner in which he went away from the opposition suggested the rise to 3m1f could see him take another step forward. Larkbarrow Lad's Ascot second just before Christmas gives him solid credentials, with the extra half-mile likely to play to his strengths, while Bailarico can prove better than his Leicester third having received a penalty for a walkover at the same track the time before.

MERCIAN PRINCE won this 12 months ago off a 5lb lower mark and shaped at Ludlow over an inadequate trip last month as though he would benefit from the outing. The eight-year-old followed up his success in this contest with a Wetherby victory off 2lb higher than today's figure, and this may be the time to catch him. Amour de Nuit has been in good form recently but has a career-high rating to contend with, while Casse Tete looks best of the remainder.

An intriguing clash between two extremely reliable individuals in Charbel, winner of the Peterborough Chase last month, and TOP NOTCH. The former arguably produced a career-best at Huntingdon but preference is still for Nicky Henderson's inmate because he shaped really well on his return to action when third in the Long Walk Hurdle, and the drop in trip on a track that should play to his strengths can see him back to winning ways. Black Corton was unsuited by conditions in the Ladbrokes Trophy and this looks a fact-finding mission with regards to the rest of his campaign.

KLOUD GATE arrives in search of a hat-trick having won as he has pleased in two starts over timber last month, and a step up in class shouldn't prevent another bold bid. Doux Pretender has the scope to improve his handicap mark back in trip, and the four-timer seeking Cotswold Way could also be ahead of the assessor. Darling Maltaix and Lorcan Williams have struck up a good partnership but Paul Nicholls' charge has been hit with a 12lb rise for his Ascot triumph.

Finished 13l behind Charbel when fourth of 9 at 9-1 on his latest outing in a Grade 2 chase in the Group 2 Edredon Bleu Chase at Huntingdon over 2m 4f (good to soft) in December last year.
