IMPERIAL ALCAZAR has looked a useful operator this season, as shown by his brave effort in Listed company at Cheltenham on New Year's Day. The form of his earlier Aintree success was given a timely boost with the second winning recently and it is also hard to fault his second at Newcastle in a competitive renewal of The French Furze. Fugitives Drift did well to finish third in what is typically a hot bumper at Newbury last March and is an interesting recruit to hurdles, while point-to-point scorer Muckamore could figure making his first appearance for Nigel Twiston-Davies.

A combination of a first run following wind surgery and a switch to the larger obstacles got PISTOL WHIPPED back on track when the six-year-old was successful over course and distance last month and the Seven Barrows inmate could have plenty more to come off a 6lb higher mark. The Hollow Ginge and Late Romantic are hard to dismiss despite looking in the handicappers grasp at present. However, the biggest danger could be Looks Like Murt, a 63-length winner at Kelso in October and still travelling sweetly when falling five from home at Newcastle last time.

BALLYELLIS has been extremely reliable over the past few months, finishing in the first two on his last eight starts, and the return to a claimer appeals as being the right move for the seven-year-old. Baracalu got off the mark over timber when getting the better of Percy at Market Rasen on Boxing Day and the pair are both capable of serving it up to the selection if reproducing their efforts.

Struggled upon joining this yard over fences during second half of 2019 but did at least halt the slide over hurdles thereafter. However, again below form over fences last time.

Winner of three hurdle races, a NH flat race, a chase and a point-to-point from 2m to 3m on ground varying from good to heavy. Well beaten at 12-1 when fifth of 8 on his latest outing in a chase at Ascot over 2m 5f (heavy) earlier this month.

Fairly useful hurdles winner at 2m who was far from convincing in 2 chase tries during 2018/19 season for Henry de Bromhead. Absent since but undergone wind surgery and the market should guide.

Successful in a hurdle race and a point-to-point at 2m and 3m on soft and heavy ground, but last win was over two years ago. Well beaten at 20-1 when fifth of 6 on his latest outing in a chase at Punchestown over 2m (good - yielding) in February last year. Having his first run for a new stable today.

PRAIRIE TOWN readily saw off Glance Back (second) amongst others in a similar C&D event last month and, although a 6lb rise will obviously make life tougher, he might be able to complete the double. The latter lines up off an unchanged mark and should show up well again, although Admiral's Secret, runner-up at both Taunton and Wincanton, might pose a bigger threat. Lithic also warrants respect having been unlucky at Market Rasen.

A winner of a point-to-point at 3m on good ground, but that win was over two years ago. Fell at the 3rd when 7-1 at Doncaster over 2m 3f (good to soft) in a hurdle race won by Methag in December last year on his latest outing.
