All eyes will be on FLINTEUR SACRE, who has a long way to go to emulate his brother Sprinter Sacre but could hardly have been more impressive when last sighted at Kempton in February. He won a bumper effortlessly that day, confirming the promise of his course debut when he showed signs of greenness, and he could be anything now going hurdling for the first time. Expected to have been well schooled at home, given his powerful connections, the five-year-old should have too much class for My Drogo, who finished second in a Cheltenham bumper, and point scorer Sir Sholokhov.

Made promising chase debut when second of 4 in novice at Warwick in September and didn't need to improve to open his account at Exeter next time. Opening mark looks fair, so he's worth considering.

Successful in a hurdle race and a chase at 2m 1f on good to firm and good ground. Won on his latest outing in a chase when 8-13fav at Exeter over 2m 1f (good to firm) last month, beating Dorking Boy by 1l.

Ex-French winning hurdler who left previous chasing efforts well behind when runner-up under a more positive ride in handicap at Ascot last time. Another bold bid expected.

A winner of a hurdle race at 2m 2f, but that win was over two years ago. Beaten 5l by Sully D'Oc Aa when second of 8 at 12-1 on his latest outing in a chase at Ascot over 2m 3f (good to soft) last month.

Eritage won by eight and a half lengths at Ludlow on his seasonal/chase debut, but that doesn't tell the full story as he looked booked for second until Goa Lil fell at the last. It would come as no surprise if he performed well in this handicap, but the gut feeling is that he might find one or two too good off his revised mark and ANEMOI looks the one to be on. The lightly-raced six-year-old has appreciated a spell on the sidelines and wind surgery judged by his back-to-back wins this season and he showed all his battling qualities to deny Financier at Chepstow on his chase bow. Elusive Belle and Zoffee are others to note.

The market vibes were positive for BOTHWELL BRIDGE prior to his hurdling debut at Warwick, even before Wilde About Oscar was withdrawn, and Nicky Henderson's charge was impressive in winning by six lengths. Entitled to improve for that first attempt over timber and for this step up in distance, the Stowaway gelding gets a confident vote ahead of Exeter scorer Bravemansgame and surprise 50-1 Aintree winner Real Stone.

Very smart chaser on his day (C&D winner) who wasn't seen to best effect when midfield in Summer Plate at Market Rasen in July. Operating from last winning mark now and he's interesting.

Second in the Summer Plate at Market Rasen before winning weaker handicap over the same 21.4f last month, showing a good attitude. This is clearly much tougher.

Winner of four hurdle races and three chases from 2m to 2m 7f on good and good to soft ground. A winner at 9-2 in a chase at Market Rasen over 2m 5f (good) on his latest outing last month, beating Court Master by a head.

Ended last season on a low-key note and difficult to gauge if he had returned in form having unseated early on at Ascot (21f) last week. Likely he has more handicaps in him over fences.

Winner of three hurdle races and two chases from 2m 3f to 2m 6f on ground varying from good to soft, but last win was over two years ago. Unseated rider when 13-2 at Ascot over 2m 5f (soft) in a chase won by Espoir De Guye earlier this month on his latest outing.

Won a couple of small-field novice chases in early 2019. However, never looked the most straightforward and he wasn't at his very best at Kempton when last seen in March. Mark has eased at least.

Winner of two hurdle races, a NH flat race, two chases and a point-to-point from 2m to 3m on good to soft and soft ground. Beaten 11l behind Delire D'Estruval at 25-1 when seventh of 20 on his latest outing in a chase at Kempton over 2m 4f (good to soft) in March.

Winless over fences last term but often shaped well and very much back on the up when scoring at Ascot (18.8f) in October, jumping soundly. 10 lb higher now but he may yet have more to offer.

Clondaw Castle (second) and Oldgrangewood (fourth) shaped encouragingly in the Old Roan at Aintree last month and both have claims here, but a chance is taken on the returning CEPAGE, who represents connections that won this race two years ago with Aso. Encouragingly, the eight-year-old has a decent first-time-out record and cutting back in trip looks a smart move after he shaped like a non-stayer in the Ultima at Cheltenham in March. Sully D'Oc Aa also deserves a mention following his comfortable victory at Ascot last month, although a 10lb hike could slow him down a little.
