GLORIOUS LADY has taken really well to hurdling, winning twice and finishing second three times in her first five outings, and she was far from disgraced when fourth in a Listed contest at Haydock. She handles testing conditions well and it will take a decent one to beat her. Craig Nichol has partnered on her last three starts but jumps ship to her stablemate Oscar Clouds, a half-brother to Many Clouds. Pull Green has experience on his side, though, and looks the chief threat.

A winner of a hurdle race at 2m 3f on yielding ground, but that win was over two years ago. Pulled up having jumped the last when 10-1 at Wexford over 3m 1f (good) in a chase won by Rudy Catrail in September last year on his latest outing. Having his first run for a new stable today.

One win from 34 NH runs. Pulled up in handicap chase at Wexford (25f, good) 164 days ago, struggling over circuit out. First run for yard after leaving Peter Fahey. Likely best watched.

Unplaced in Irish points and well beaten in 3 maiden hurdles before Christmas. Opening handicap mark not obviously generous now switching his attention to fences.

Yet to place in six starts. Well beaten at 50-1 behind Elf De Re when sixth of 11 on his latest outing in a maiden hurdle race at Kelso over 2m (soft) in December last year.

The switch to fences, combined with a wind operation, has enabled POGUE to step his form up a level and he built on an encouraging second on his Catterick chasing debut by going one better at Doncaster. The form of that event was boosted when the fourth came out and won well, and Donald McCain's charge has plenty of scope for further improvement. Im Too Generous is also on an upward curve and goes particularly well here. First Account is interesting on his first start for Keith Dalgleish, and Destiny Is All can't be ruled out either.

Paul Nicholls sends just two horses on the long trek north and the first of them is NINEOHTWOONEOH. The six-year-old is bred to make a chaser but there are races in him in this sphere, judging by his Wincanton third on his handicap debut. Titus Bolt isn't getting any younger but has occupied the runner-up berth on his last two appearances to show that he is still a force at the right level. Starplex's good run of form came to an end at Wetherby and he is 4lb higher now so has work to do.

Fairly useful winning chaser at his best but very lightly raced nowadays and pulled up at Wetherby 17 days ago on his first run for 15 months. Hard to enthuse over.

Winner of a hurdle race, a NH flat race and four chases from 2m to 2m 1f on good to soft and heavy ground. Pulled up 3 out when 25-1 at Wetherby over 2m 3f (soft) in a chase won by Nuts Well earlier this month on his latest outing.

DUKE OF NAVAN took a step back in the right direction when a good third at Doncaster last month and the veteran performer can take advantage of the handicapper dropping him 2lb for that effort. Pistol Park pulled up on his return to action at Wetherby after a long absence but he could bounce back along with Ardera Cross, who struggled over C&D at the start of the month but is back on his last winning mark.
