Successful twice in 2017. Very lightly-raced since and he never fired on all cylinders in 2 starts during the autumn. However, fact he has gone well fresh previously means he's not one to write off.

Winner of four hurdle races and a NH flat race from 2m to 2m 4f on ground varying from good to soft. Well beaten at 12-1 behind Whatmore when eighth of 11 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Bangor-on-Dee over 2m 4f (good to soft) in November last year.

PASSING CALL enjoyed a good spell throughout last summer and proved to be competitive at Listed level when third behind Posh Trish at Newbury in December. She didn't run to form when behind the same rival at Taunton, but she returns from a break and could still have more to come back in handicaps. The Nicky Henderson pair, Laughing Luis and Heatstroke, both have the potential for further improvement back on a flatter track, while Bhutan lost a shoe at Haydock last time and can be given another chance.

OLLIE VAAR wasn't out of contention when falling on his latest start at Ffos Las and he has the potential for more to offer having moved yards to Christian Williams. Triple Chief has been very consistent, despite not getting his head in front on his last five outings, and is likely to go close once again, while Inaminna could bounce back to form after his fifth at Bangor last month.

JOT'EM DOWN benefited from a wind operation and a set of cheekpieces when scoring on his chase debut at Plumpton last month. Despite being flattered by the 25-length winning margin at the finish, his closest pursuer falling at the second last, he left a lasting impression and a 6lb rise could prove to be very fair. Taaffes Castle improved for the step up in trip when second at Warwick over hurdles earlier in the month and warrants respect being a point-to-point winner, while course winner Iniesta completes the shortlist.

DOLPHIN SQUARE must concede weight to all of his rivals but the Exeter winner has much less on his plate than when attempting to give weight away at the Devonshire venue last time. Philip Hobbs' point scorer sets a good standard boasting a rating of 128 and, with owner David Maxwell claiming 5lb in the plate, he should prove too good for the likes of Igor and the 118-rated Nativegetaway.
