JACK VALENTINE has displayed promise on both of his previous starts over hurdles and this race appears to be an ideal opportunity for the seven-year-old to earn his first victory over obstacles. Kid Commando showed ability in bumpers, winning at Fontwell in November, and he could prove to be the main threat to the selection, ahead of Hit The Rocks and Bigunonthebalcony.

JULLY LES BUXY returned to winning ways at Lingfield a fortnight ago and even a 6lb rise in the ratings for that victory may not be enough to stop her from taking this contest as well. Mister Murchan hit the crossbar at Ascot last month and he should be in the mix once again. Others to note are Fortunate George and Invincible Cave.

CHRISTMAS IN APRIL arrives in peak order having followed up his 3m2f victory at Fontwell with a win over the extended 3m4f here in the Sussex National. Colin Tizzard's progressive eight-year-old is expected to take a 6lb rise in his stride to complete a hat-trick. Over To Sam is having only his second start following wind surgery and is feared most, though Virginia Chick is no forlorn hope either now eased in grade after contesting the Welsh Grand National.

Rarest Diamond ran her best race yet when third over the extended 2m2f at Exeter last time and could feasibly show up well if running to a similar level of form over this shorter trip. Of more interest, however, is WHITE CHOCOLATE, who is expected to step up on her hurdles debut third here last time and take closer order. Marilyn Monroe has won between the flags and in a bumper and likely has better to offer over obstacles too.

Not the force of old, but his mark reflects that and he's been running respectably under this rider. Should stay this far.

Winner of a hurdle race, three chases and a point-to-point from 2m 4f to 3m on good and soft ground, but last win was over four years ago. Third of 7 behind Defi Sacre beaten 14l at 15-2 on his latest outing in a chase at Newbury over 2m (soft) in December last year.
