Son Of Red arrives on the back of a 1m4f Flat success at Southwell and warrants respect on his NH debut, while Ludlow third State Crown and Sir Charles Punch, another switching from the level, also merit consideration. However, CASTEL GANDOLFO sets a decent standard on his three-parts of a length second at Musselburgh earlier in the month and he gets the vote to go one better.

All the better for his reappearance when back to winning ways at Carlisle (2m) in October. Proved a disappointment when pulled up at Kelso next time, though.

Has won three hurdle races and five chases from 1m 7f to 2m 2f on ground varying from good to soft. Pulled up at the last when 12-1 at Kelso over 2m 1f (good to soft) in a chase won by Cedar Hill earlier this month on his latest outing.

CEDAR HILL has impressively notched a 2m1f Kelso double and, with this step back up in trip unlikely to pose any problems, he looks capable of defying a further 11lb hike in the ratings. Oscar Ceremony won twice for Stef Keniry earlier this year and Brian Ellison's inmate merits consideration on his stable/seasonal debut, while Do Not Disturb and Treshnish both have each-way claims.

The 135-rated GETAROUND might be able to give weight and a beating to these rivals. He possibly didn't quite get home when fourth over 2m7f on soft ground at Lingfield last time, but that was still a fair effort (third won easily last weekend) and similar aggressive tactics could pay off under these conditions. Ask A Honey Bee also likes to get on with it and he rates the biggest threat, while Tupelo Mississippi is weighted to reverse Carlisle form with Le Cheval Noir.

THE FERRY MASTER won with plenty in hand in a similar contest at Kelso three weeks ago and the unexposed seven-year-old merits the utmost respect once again today, despite a 9lb rise in the ratings. Oscar Robertson also arrives here on the back of a victory and he should go well once again, while Aye Aye Charlie and Court Dreaming complete the shortlist.

Pulled up 3 out when 33-1 in the Group 1 Unibet Champion Hurdle Challenge Trophy at Cheltenham over 2m (soft) in a Grade 1 hurdle race won by Epatante in March on his latest NH outing.

Smart chaser at his best for Willie Mullins and showed plenty of zest on comeback for new yard in Aintree handicap hurdle last month. This is clearly much tougher. Cheekpieces go on.

Winner of four hurdle races and three chases from 2m to 2m 4f on ground varying from good to firm to yielding. Well beaten at 50-1 behind Jacamar when 12th of 14 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Aintree over 2m 4f (soft) last month.

EPATANTE was highly progressive last season and she was an impressive winner of the Champion Hurdle when last seen in March. That was far from a vintage renewal of that contest but Nicky Henderson's mare is still the one they all have to beat this afternoon. Sceau Royal has appreciated the return to hurdles in recent months, albeit at a lower level, and it would be no surprise to see him in the mix once again. Last year's winner Cornerstone Lad should not be underestimated, while Silver Streak and Ribble Valley also merit places the shortlist.

Placed in a NH flat race from two starts. Finished 18l behind Saint Arvans when fourth of 10 at 20-1 on his hurdling debut at Kelso over 2m (good) last month.
