SKEAPING showed a nice attitude to finish second in a similar race at Fakenham last month and wouldn't need to improve much in order to land this prize. Luca Morgan won twice on the six-year-old in October, and his presence back on board could prove to be the catalyst for success. Clearly Capable hasn't performed badly the last twice, while Blow By Blow doesn't seem to be in love with the game anymore.

HOLD THAT TAUGHT was backed accordingly when scoring at Lingfield on his UK debut two weeks ago and is fancied to remain unbeaten on these shores for Venetia Williams. A 10-length point winner in March, the four-year-old clearly has an engine and won't mind this testing ground. Alnadam looks a staying chaser in the making but showed a nice attitude to win over 2m at Uttoxeter last month, while Shanacoole Prince has a nice profile for Kim Bailey and completes the shortlist.

A winner of a point-to-point at 3m. Third of 8 behind Pres beaten 3l at 9-2 on his chase debut at Lingfield over 2m 7f (heavy) last month.

Winning Irish pointer who is still unexposed under Rules and made a positive start over fences when a staying-on third at Lingfield on reappearance. Looks sure to build on that.

Successful in a hurdle race and a NH flat race at 2m on good to soft and soft ground, but last win was over two years ago. Third of 6 behind Adman Sam beaten 36l at 7-1 on his latest outing in a chase at Warwick over 2m 4f (good to soft) last month.

ARQALINA travelled with intent before launching her winning move at Ffos Las in an ordinary race 13 days ago, but that effort can be upgraded given that it came on her chasing debut, and an 8lb rise might not be enough to prevent a follow up. The seven-year-old clearly appreciates these conditions, and is fancied to prove too strong for Rizzardo, who just bumped into a well-handicapped type at Warwick four weeks ago. Veteran Broughtons Rhythm might prove best of the remainder.

CHIRICO VALLIS had dropped to a tempting mark before striking at Ludlow 10 days ago and could go in again for Neil Mulholland and Richie McLernon under a 7lb penalty. The seven-year-old has more scope than Never Equalled, who has been around the block but showed a nice attitude to score at Ffos Las when last seen. The rest have much to find, but perhaps Be My Sea can prove best of them under excellent 5lb claimer Ben Jones.

Velkera wasn't at her best on a testing terrain at Market Rasen last time out and might just come unstuck in similar sort of ground once more, and it could be worth taking a chance on Donald McCain's WHITEOAK FLEUR. The six-year-old finished third behind the talented Floressa at Worcester in October, and probably sets the form standard on that. She should appreciate this step up in trip and prove too strong for the likes of Fforbidden Love and Castlegrace Rose.
