Prefontaine has been active on the level this year but will need to step up on his last run at Fontwell if he's to figure. Production is entitled to build on his solid debut performances and is another to bear in mind, but slight preference is for PASEO. Oliver Sherwood's gelding was not far away in third on debut at Huntingdon and could improve for that experience.

OLEG made a winning chase debut at Wincanton 11 days ago and is expected to give a good account now bidding to overcome a 6lb rise. The Flying Sofa has been off the track since landing a maiden hurdle at Plumpton in the spring and is worth a market check now tackling the larger obstacles for the first time. Celtic Joy picked up minor money over a similar trip at Stratford last time and could also feasibly figure.

PACIFY continues to steamroller all opposition put in his path over hurdles and made it 4-4 for Jamie Snowden when landing a novice heat under a penalty at Stratford last month. Rated 100 on the Flat, the former Ralph Beckett inmate is expected to go well on these terms now pitched into Listed company. Longhouse Sale is closely matched with the selection at the weights and could put up most resistance, though any money for the returning Birds Of Prey would also be notable.

Pair of 2m handicaps wins last winter and walked over at Plumpton in April. Shaped as though in need of the run at Fontwell a fortnight ago so he's expected to step up markedly on that. Visor back on.

Has won three hurdle races and five chases from 1m 7f to 2m 2f on ground varying from good to soft. Well beaten at 5-1 behind Master Work when fifth of 6 on his latest outing in a chase at Fontwell over 2m 2f (good) earlier this month.

TIDAL WATCH bumped into a resurgent Theflyingportrait when second at Kelso off this rating last month and before that had fallen with the race at his mercy at Newton Abbot, coming to grief when eight lengths clear at the last. Those performances mark Jonjo O'Neill's five-year-old out as a winner in waiting and he has scored at this course over hurdles. Snapdragon Fire was beaten less than a length on his chasing debut at Southwell, with the pick of his hurdles form putting him firmly in the picture here, while Solar Impulse performed well over track and trip when getting within two lengths of Dolos in May and is 1lb lower this time around.

ITCHY FEET got the better of Grand Sancy by just over two lengths when they met in the Listed novice event on this card 12 months ago and it is interesting that they both reappear over the same course and distance having gone on to play a leading role in the novice ranks last season. Not much is likely to separate them once again, but with Grand Sancy having to shoulder a 6lb penalty for his Grade 2 Kingwell Hurdle victory, slight preference is for Olly Murphy's five-year-old, whose performances in Grade 1 contests in the spring give him the edge. No one would begrudge the consistent Silver Streak his day in the sun and the Champion Hurdle third has to be feared, while Sofia's Rock wasn't beaten far in a competitive handicap in May and can't be completely ignored.
