HEADSCARF LIL boasts a decent level of bumper form, placing on three of her four starts to date, and the switch to hurdles promises to unlock further improvement from Nicky Richards' mare. Gemologist has run with credit over timber on several occasions and is likely to be in the mix once again, while Luck Of Clover can step forward from her hurdling debut when fourth at Newbury.

GAELIK COAST made a giant leap forward on what he achieved over hurdles when scoring on his chase debut at Fakenham at the end of last month and Donald McCain's gelding is entitled to have learnt plenty from that experience. Return Ticket was last seen finishing third at Cheltenham's October meeting and he will find this a much easier assignment having had a wind operation since that performance, while the drop back in trip is likely to benefit Swaffham Bulbeck.

MINT GOLD won on his second outing over fences at Perth in September and only found one too strong when attempting to follow up at Kelso last time. Lucinda Russell's gelding appears to have further progression to come and has been found an excellent opportunity to get back to winning ways. Pull Green is entitled to improve from his chasing debut at Bangor in July, while a pair of cheekpieces might aid the cause of Western Sea.
