Paros is the obvious starting point here having won over hurdles at Dieppe in France during the spring before being purchased by Middleham Park and sent to Nicky Henderson, who does so well with such types. The third from that race was beaten on stable debut for Paul Nicholls earlier in the season and that does bring a slight question mark over the form. Gary Moore has won this race three times since 2013 and relies on Hudson De Grugy and ROYAUME UNI. The latter won on the Flat for Andre Fabre at Angers in June on soft ground and, being the choice of Jamie Moore, is fancied to strike on his first UK start.

GRAND MOGUL proved disappointing in Grade 2 company at Cheltenham three weeks ago, though he previously showed plenty of promise when winning on reappearance at Chepstow in October and could get back on track in these calmer waters. The six-year-old would be difficult to stop if running to his official rating of 130, and won't mind this drop in distance having won a bumper in Ireland over two miles. Golden Boy Grey cost 43,000 euros as a three-year-old and can claim second ahead of Mickyh, who is a half-brother to the talented Flash The Steel.

Showed fair form when third in a Plumpton novice hurdle in January 2019. Not seen since disappointing on handicap debut at Fontwell the following month, but worth a market check all the same.

Placed in a hurdle race from five starts. Well beaten at 6-1 behind Ostuni when seventh of 9 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Fontwell over 2m 6f (good to soft) in February last year.

CHASAMAX remains a maiden after six starts for Nicky Henderson, though he showed plenty when third in a competitive Cheltenham handicap most recently and could relish this test. A 3lb rise still leaves him fairly handicapped off 118 and the five-year-old could have too much pace for Fifty Ball, who drops in distance after winning over 2m4f at Ascot in October. Frenchy Du Large found just one too good at Uttoxeter three weeks ago and represents a yard hitting top form.

ALLMANKIND continues to surprise over obstacles having made up into a leading juvenile over hurdles last season, having raced far too keenly on the Flat for Michael Bell, before switching to fences at Warwick last time. His jumping was terrific on that occasion, the form receiving a boost when the runner-up scored at Newbury last weekend, and the seven fences down the back straight should play to his strengths here. Ga Law and Hitman have both been impressive over the larger obstacles, also making use of the four-year-old allowance like the selection, but their recent victories, at Wincanton and Ffos Las respectively, came in contests that fell apart. With that in mind, Eldorado Allen could prove to be the main threat following his Cheltenham success last month and has made a decent step forward for going chasing. Tamaroc Du Mathan and Phoenix Way are no back numbers either with the pair having both won nicely on their chase debut.

Had no Altior to contend with when resuming winning ways on the biggest stage in the Champion Chase in March, dominating from the outset. Won this in 2017 (bled last year) and should go well.

Has won two hurdle races and nine chases from 1m 7f to 2m 6f on ground varying from good to heavy. A winner at 6-1 in a Grade 1 chase in the Group 1 Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham over 2m (soft) on his latest outing in March, beating Dynamite Dollars by 10l.

Last season didn't go to plan for ALTIOR when suffering his first defeat over obstacles in a match-up against Cyrname at Ascot on testing ground which left its mark on the pair of them. He got back on track in the Game Spirit at Newbury before a splint ruled him out of attempting to land the Champion Chase for the third year running. Connections have been positive with regards his preparation and a recent blow out at Newbury's Ladbrokes media morning with stable companion Epatante should have put him spot on for his return to action. Politologue was the chief benefactor of Altior's absence at Cheltenham in March when also taking full advantage of Defi Du Seuil underperforming and is reunited with Harry Skelton once again. He is likely to give it his best shot from the front with his stablemate Greaneteen, a winner of the Haldon Gold Cup at Exeter last month, and impressive Cheltenham handicap scorer Rouge Vif capable of further progression.

Patchy record last season but looked better than ever when making an impressive winning return over a new trip at Fontwell (27.7f) 3 weeks ago. 11 lb higher now but that looks justified.

Winner of three hurdle races and two chases from 2m 3f to 3m 4f on ground varying from good to soft to heavy. A winner at 7-2 in a chase at Fontwell over 3m 4f (heavy) on his latest outing last month, beating Christmas In April by 13l.

Mostly respectable efforts last season and positive return when second at Aintree. Let down by jumping at Haydock 2 weeks ago.

He has won a hurdle race and three chases from 2m 4f to 3m 4f on ground varying from good to heavy. Unseated rider when 7-1 at Haydock over 3m 4f (heavy) in a chase won by Perfect Candidate last month on his latest outing.
