GEMOLOGIST is a regular here and having rattled the crossbar on her return to this sphere last time, she could take plenty of beating now stepped up to 2m4f off just a 2lb higher mark. Sidi Ismael is interesting now sent handicapping in a first-time tongue-tie and, along with stablemate Maulesden May, he gives Keith Dalgleish a strong hand. Cousin Oscar is dropping down the ratings and is another to consider.

UNAI's Warwick bumper third behind Overthetop (first) and Induno (second) looks a red-hot piece of form and now Ben Pauling's string are back up and running the four-year-old could make a bright start to life over hurdles. No Regrets struggled in the Hexham mud on his hurdles bow but could fare better now back down in trip on better ground. Order Of Thistle has shaped nicely so far this season and could also figure.

BENNY'S SECRET was two lengths clear of the second, Izzy's Champion, when scoring over C&D last month, and despite meeting that rival on 4lb worse terms this time, Nick Alexander's nine-year-old has looked a useful chaser in the making and is taken to uphold the form. Castletown looks an obvious threat off the same rating as when second over track and trip on his reappearance last month, with Mountain Hawk and Ice Galley others to note.

Might have been a bit flattered when runner-up at Kelso on return in October, and subsequent Catterick effort represented a step in the wrong direction.

Successful in two chases at 2m and 2m 1f on good ground, but last win was over two years ago. Well beaten at 16-1 behind Dallas Cowboy when fifth of 12 on his latest outing in a chase at Catterick over 2m 3f (good to soft) last month.

The form of DEFI SACRE's narrow Fakenham second was boosted when the winner went close in a competitive Sandown handicap on Friday and Richard Hobson's six-year-old could be the answer here off the same rating. Sporting Press was sent off favourite when second over C&D last time and is likely to be popular once again, while Middlebrow and Effet Special have been disappointing of late, but could still fight it out for the final place on the podium.
