A winner of a NH flat race at 1m 6f on soft ground. Well beaten at 1-2fav behind Howling Milan when fourth of 16 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Newbury over 2m (good) in January.

HEATSTROKE had a good yardstick back in third on his first run for 676 days at Huntingdon last month, and could have more to offer for the Nicky Henderson yard if he doesn't 'bounce' here. His jumping was seriously impressive and he can prove too strong for Ashutor, who has finished second in both starts for Paul Nicholls so far this season. Ferrobin got off the mark earlier this month in a weak race and needs to step up.

ENVOYE SPECIAL was sixth in a Kempton handicap over Christmas that has thrown up plenty of winners, and should appreciate these calmer shores now dropped 2lb. The five-year-old remains open to much improvement and could prove too strong for Timoteo, who cruised home at Stratford earlier this week but has a 7lb penalty to defy. Eddiemaurice seems to be at home on flatter tracks and should give the form of this race a solid outlook.

Plenty of good horses have won this race in recent years, with the likes of Carole's Destrier, Theinval, Might Bite, Brio Conti and Kildisart all successful, and it can go to MY WAY, who arrived in the UK with a lofty reputation. He was disappointing on his first couple of starts for Paul Nicholls, but has shaped well behind smart prospects the last twice and will appreciate any further rain. Star Of Lanka was fourth in a hot Haydock race and merits respect, while Burrows Edge has a big weight to carry but rarely lets himself down.

KAYF BLANCO picked up the pieces following Kupatana's fall to land his second win in a row at Ludlow and can complete the hat-trick at a track he has twice hit the crossbar at off similar ratings. Value At Risk is very good on a going day but is hard to predict, so a more reliable option in opposition may be Charlie Longsdon's Forth Bridge, who has finished second on his last three starts.

RESERVE TANK burst the bubble of Elusive Belle at Sandown and Colin Tizzard's five-year-old looks sure to keep on progressing, with this step up in trip expected to suit. The Cashel Man was only beaten a neck over C&D by stablemate Pym on his hurdles bow and will be better suited by a return to Kempton having been held over three miles at Uttoxeter, while Darling Maltaix brings smart handicap form to the table back in novice company.
