Useful hurdler who returned with a respectable third in the Persian War at Chepstow. Set to finish second when coming down at the last at this course on subsequent chasing debut, so not ruled out.

Successful in a hurdle race and a NH flat race at 1m 7f and 3m on good and soft ground. Unseated rider when 7-4fav here over 2m 6f (good) in a chase won by Kalooki earlier this month on his chase debut.

NEXT DESTINATION made a very pleasing return to action for Paul Nicholls when runner-up in the West Yorkshire Hurdle at Wetherby having not been out since landing a Grade 1 at the Punchestown Festival in April 2018. The eight-year-old was expected to make a strong impact as a chaser before being kept off the track due to niggly issues and, with that recent outing under his belt, he could prove a tough nut to crack. Kalooki was impressive on his chase debut here earlier in the month when accounting for One For The Team, who was held when unseating at the final fence, and the pair are likely to be in the mix along with Hold The Note, who appeared to be in need of his first outing behind Shan Blue at Wetherby.

KAPCORSE won this contest two years ago when getting the better of Brelan D'As by 10 lengths and remains unexposed over the larger obstacles despite returning from a lengthy absence. Highest Sun is open to improvement from his return at Hereford earlier in the month with the handicapper dropping him 2lb, while Court Master, who finished fourth at the course last time, and Almazhar Garde are both likely to enter the reckoning.
