MONSIEUR D'ARQUE was not disgraced in some competitive races earlier in the season and he got off the mark under Rules at Ludlow last time out. He will be hard to beat if reproducing that form, despite having to carry a 6lb penalty. River Bray and Jacamar are other proven winners and they are likely to be the main threats to the selection.

Placed in two hurdle races from seven starts. Well beaten at 6-1 behind Eur Gone West when seventh of 9 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Exeter over 2m 7f (good to soft) last month.

Excellent second of 14 on handicap debut at Hereford (21.7f) in March. Scoped dirty at Exeter since so perhaps worth another chance.

LOVE THE LEADER won three races in 10 days back in November and, while he is now a lot higher in the ratings, the veteran could be hard to beat in a moderate contest. Ballybough Nora has been running well enough of late and she should be thereabouts once again, while General Allenby has to be respected following his recent placed effort at Kelso.

FALCO BLITZ didn't appear to see out 2m5f when second at Ludlow on his latest start and the drop in distance is likely to benefit Nicky Henderson's gelding based on his effort behind One For Rosie at Warwick. Boomarang has shown promise on both his hurdle outings to date and is entitled to go close once again, while Dontcounturchikens completes the shortlist on his hurdling debut.
