SANTANI proved to be very consistent in handicaps on the Flat in France without getting his head in front, but this looks an ideal opportunity to gain his first career success with the opposition having shown limited promise over timber. Cock A Doodle Doo has struggled to win handicaps over the past few months but could benefit from a set of cheekpieces, while Wondergirl looks best of the remainder.

BABY KING has to give 24lb and upwards to his three rivals, but he has steadily crept down the weights this season and his third at Warwick in January off 3lb higher suggests he is still capable of winning when presented with the right opportunity. All Is Good has a tongue-tie and cheekpieces on for the first time and, if bouncing back from being pulled up at Taunton, can pose the most solid threat to the selection, while Billy Hicks can win the battle for third against Spock.

Winner of four hurdle races and two chases from 2m 3f to 3m 1f on good and good to soft ground. Beaten 10l by Monbeg Gold when second of 7 at 9-2 on his latest outing in a chase at Southwell over 3m (good) earlier this month. Has won 3 times this season.

Useful at his peak but very lightly raced and little form in recent seasons. Blinkers need to have a positive effect.

He has won three hurdle races at 2m on ground varying from good to soft to heavy, but last win was over four years ago. Well beaten at 25-1 when sixth of 11 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Haydock over 2m 3f (soft) in December last year.

YOUNG WOLF has been brought along steadily by Jonjo O'Neill and was inconvenienced by the drop in distance when third at Catterick in February. Now stepped up to 3m for the first time, this is likely to bring out the best in him being a half-brother to Lake View Lad and a full relation to the ill-fated Neon Wolf. Hepijeu returns to timber having landed a hat-trick in the autumn before a trio of seconds over fences, while Manning Estate shaped at Fontwell last month as though 3m would pose no issues.

VENDREDI TROIS enjoyed a consistent spell in 2018, only finishing out of the first three in a jumpers' bumper at Kempton in March, and was last seen finishing third to the progressive Cloth Cap at Stratford in November. If returning in similar form, he can take advantage of what appears a winnable contest on paper. Master Burbidge is a strong traveller but flattered to deceive when second at Newbury last time, so the main danger could come from Jaunty Flyer with Richard Johnson taking over in the saddle.

No impact in handicap hurdles for Nick Kent in 2016. Arrives fit from points (third last time) but probably still best watched back under Rules.

A winner of a point-to-point at 3m, but that win was over four years ago. Third of 13 behind Big Sound beaten 10l at 25-1fav on his latest outing in a point-to-point race at Dalton Park over 2m 6f last month. Having his first run for a new stable today.

HAHADI produced an encouraging performance when third at Stratford last time and, now tried in cheekpieces off the same mark, could be the one to side with. The lightly-raced Neverbeen To Paris is interesting on his handicap debut and has some useful form on the Flat to his name, while Ballyellis has run well at this venue in the past and is respected.
