Took a step back in the right direction when third at Kelso last month. Not sure to build on that given his in-and-out profile but serious player if he does off career-low mark. NON RUNNER.

Successful in a hurdle race and a point-to-point at 2m and 3m on good to soft ground, but last win was over two years ago. Third of 7 behind Skyhill beaten 13l at 6-1 on his latest outing in a chase at Kelso over 2m 6f (soft) last month.

The Road Home and Eagle Ridge are closely matched on last month's Kelso clash and both have their chance here. The latter has undergone wind surgery since so that could bring about enough improvement to reverse the form, but he may have to play second fiddle to OLD JEWRY. Daragh Bourke's charge lines up off the same mark as when a length third over hurdles at Carlisle recently and, with just one previous chase outing under his belt, he remains open to plenty of improvement.

Placed in a hurdle race and two chases from eight starts. Slipped up when 3-1 at Catterick over 2m 3f (soft) in a maiden hurdle race won by Carys' Commodity last month on his latest outing.

QUART DE GARDE still held every chance when slipping up on the home turn at Catterick and, without such incident this time, he could prove a tough nut to crack. Having said that, Ask Henry is rated 1lb above Donald McCain's charge and has improved on each of his three starts since swapping Ireland for England. He posted a solid effort at Doncaster last time and is the obvious danger, with Sister Midnight booked for third.

FIRST ACCOUNT has an unexposed, progressive profile and looks the most likely winner of this competitive handicap. He comfortably defied skinny odds over fences here last time and makes plenty of appeal switching back to hurdles off the same mark (due to go up 6lb in the near future). Island Heights has solid form claims but hasn't been seen since December 2018, so the bigger danger might be Buckled, who bolted up over the larger obstacles here 40 days ago. Trongate and Jennys Day are other names to note.

IZZY'S CHAMPION proved too strong for the opposition when clearly benefiting from wind surgery at the track last month, and there could be more to come with the six-year-old stepping up to 3m for the first time. Definite Wisdom improved on his chasing debut when second at Wetherby in December and is capable of going close along with Bobmahley, who shaped as though the step up in trip would play to his strengths on his latest hurdles outing at Taunton.

ROYAL COSMIC was fancied to give a solid account on her handicap debut here at the start of the month until a stumble after the fourth last ended any chance she had. The time before had seen her get the better of Smart Lass at this course in novice company and Richard Fahey's mare is capable of making amends. The aforementioned Smart Lass is respected despite not running to her best in a jumpers' bumper at Newcastle recently, while Blooriedotcom can also go well.
