Boughtbeforelunch shaped with promise when third at Leicester last month and would be entitled to improve now granted a stiffer test of stamina. First-time blinkers could also help Paul Webber's charge, but this can go the way of Paul Nicholls and MY WAY. A winner on reappearance at Stratford before a creditable fourth in the Badger Beers at Wincanton, the six-year-old is 0-10 over fences but ran well for a long way last time when attempting to make all. Igor may prove best of the remainder.

Seemingly perked up by the refitting of headgear when ending a losing run at Leicester 12 months ago. None too reliable, though, and well held since (reluctant start at Kempton latest).

ROUGH NIGHT has faced some tough opponents the last twice at Haydock and more recently Aintree, but takes a hefty drop in class now for Alex Hales and might be able to capitalise. The seven-year-old couldn't justify strong market support on reappearance last month, but he wears first-time cheekpieces now and should have stripped fitter for last time. Falcon Sun stayed on well when second at Taunton recently and may well enjoy this switch to a stiffer track, while Early Du Lemo requires a market check back from a 689-day absence.

Morning Vicar won a competitive handicap at Newbury four weeks ago, making all under Nico De Boinville, and is certainly a specialist over this trip on decent ground. Any rain would be a negative towards his prospects, though, off 6lb higher, and it might be worth taking a chance with FUNAMBULE SIVOLA despite the nine-day turnaround. Venetia Williams' charge faces stronger company after a thumping success at Wetherby last week, but he jumped the opposition into the ground there and is officially 6lb well-in. Top Man was an easy winner at Fontwell in October and is also worth another look.

STAR GATE won between the flags before registering a commanding hurdles success at Chepstow on his first start under Rules. Evan Williams' charge is expected to continue on an upward curve and is narrowly preferred to Sending Love, who bounced back to form, following wind surgery, when striking in a maiden hurdle at Ffos Las last month. Any News left a favourable impression on his hurdles bow when romping home at Bangor and is another to note.
