TABOU BEACH BOY stayed on well to score here on his handicap bow a fortnight ago and the manner in which he saw that extended 1m7f trip out suggests this step up in distance might unlock further progression. Not The Chablis fended off the challenge of Highway Companion when the pair met over C&D on New Year's Day and the pair are both likely to give a solid account again.

Losing run goes back to 2017. Hard to be excited by his 3 handicap hurdle efforts this term and remains to be seen if a return to chasing sparks him back to life.

He has won four hurdle races from 2m 3f to 3m on good to firm and good ground, but last win was over two years ago. Well beaten at 12-1 behind Petite Ganache when fifth of 8 on his latest outing in a hurdle race here over 3m (good to soft) earlier this month.

HIGH NOON opened his account at the 11th time of asking when landing a contest here over an extended 2m4f at the start of the month and a 10lb rise might not be enough to stop the eight-year-old. Warendorf has been acquitting himself well over shorter distances and could prove a solid threat if seeing out the trip, while any market support for Irish raider Mr Jacaranda would have to be noted.

SMART LASS was no match for a comfortable winner over C&D in November, but Iain Jardine's mare finished well clear of the remainder, headed by Royal Cosmic who reopposes, and this appears to represent an ideal opportunity to get off the mark in this sphere. The aforementioned Royal Cosmic has since run well at Catterick but will need to improve further to get the better of the selection as she has a 14-length deficit to overcome, while Dieu Benisse could be a player if her jumping holds up.

Fairly useful on Flat and won first 2 starts over hurdles in autumn of 2018. Found only a well-treated rival too strong on last month's debut for Nicky Richards and he's of interest.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m and 2m 1f on good ground. Beaten 2 1/2l by Pagero when second of 13 at 6-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Doncaster over 2m 1f (soft) in December last year.

Already five-time winner over hurdles/fences this season, putting up another career best in November. Heavy defeat at Ayr 11 days ago does need forgiving, however.

Has won four hurdle races and five chases from 2m to 2m 5f on ground varying from good to heavy. Pulled up 2 out when 6-1 at Ayr over 2m (heavy) in a hurdle race won by Mcgowan's Pass earlier this month on his latest outing. Has won 3 times this season.

Modest handicapper on Flat nowadays, but he's a more solid proposition in this sphere and got off the mark in good style at Sedgefield last month. Can be a factor on handicap debut.

WEATHER FRONT looked a top prospect when landing back-to-back novice hurdle victories in the autumn of 2018 and was even talked of as a potential Supreme Novices' Hurdle contender by handler Karen McLintock. He now returns following 427 days off the track and the seven-year-old could prove leniently treated on handicap debut if retaining all of his old ability. Goldencard reverts to hurdles following some fine efforts over fences of late and the course-and-distance winner has to be respected. Kajaki is also noted having picked up a silver medal on his first outing for Nicky Richards last month.
