MY LADY GREY has enjoyed a fine couple of months at the course, winning two of her four starts, and softer conditions on this occasion will aid her causes in regards to her being able to make this more of a stamina test from the front. Memphis Bell has progressed nicely since being upped in trip, winning impressively at Ffos Las on her last two outings, and she can enter the reckoning along with Royal Claret, a winner when last seen at Hereford in March.

ELEANOR BOB was progressive in novice company last season and can be forgiven her final outing with conditions being extremely tough in Listed company at Doncaster. Venetia Williams' string have started the campaign well and an opening mark of 121 is workable. Sastruga won here on his return at a big price but there didn't appear to be any fluke about that performance and he commands plenty of respect, while others to consider include Jamessaintpatrick and Mille Sussurri.

GOLD LINK ran with a fair amount of promise on both of his outings in French bumpers last year and Emma Lavelle's gelding makes plenty of appeal on his hurdling bow. Metier was a useful performer on the Flat last season for Andrew Slattery, rated as high as 90 at his best, and he is of interest on his first start for Harry Fry. Istorius and Oneupmanship are others worth noting.

Arrived in good form, but was let down by jumping under a change of tactics when last of 6 in handicap hurdle at Fontwell (19.2f, heavy, 2/1) in March. First-time cheekpieces need to sharpen him up.

Successful in a hurdle race and a NH flat race at 2m and 2m 6f on good and heavy ground. Well beaten at 2-1jt-fav behind Twenty Twenty when last of 6 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Fontwell over 2m 3f (heavy) in March.

A winner of a hurdle race at 2m 2f on good ground, but that win was over two years ago. Finished 7l behind Larch Hill when sixth of 10 at 25-1 on her latest NH outing in a hurdle race at Warwick over 2m (good to soft) in January last year.

Ran well despite not being ideally placed in a modestly-run affair on reappearance at Fontwell earlier this month. He remains unexposed and looks a leading player here from just a 2 lb higher mark.

Placed in two hurdle races from five starts. Beaten 2l by Crocodile Dundee when second of 7 at 7-2 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Fontwell over 2m 3f (soft) earlier this month.

Modest stayer on Flat who has been soundly beaten in 3 starts over hurdles but should make more of a splash in handicaps. Interesting to see what the market makes of him on return.

Yet to place in three starts over hurdles. Well beaten at 150-1 behind Fidelio Vallis when 13th of 17 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Wincanton over 1m 7f (soft) in February.

JACK VALENTINE won with a bit to spare in maiden company at Exeter in March and could take the beating here now tackling handicap company off a fair mark of 110. Hugh Nugent is good value for his 3lb claim, and the pair will be well fancied here with conditions to suit. Breffniboy has been in good form lately and handles varying ground, while Colin Tizzard's string are yet to start firing fully but Russian Exile has a nice profile for a race like this.

Useful novice hurdler who stepped up on her chasing debut when runner-up in a novice at Huntingdon 11 months ago. Mark looks potentially lenient if she's tuned up after long absence.

She has won three hurdle races and a point-to-point from 2m 4f to 3m on good and soft ground, but last win was over two years ago. Beaten 2 1/2l by Queen's Magic when second of 6 at 2-1fav on her latest outing in a chase at Huntingdon over 2m 4f (good to soft) in November last year.
