Dan Skelton representative ZAMPARELLI returned a 14-length winner over fences at Market Rasen when last sighted and is expected to remain competitive on these terms now moving back over timber. Finalshot makes some appeal on his Ludlow second over 2m in November and is unexposed over this longer trip. Full Time Party and Whizz Bang are both sporting new headgear as they bid to step up on their latest efforts.

Back on the scoresheet in a Leicester seller over hurdles in January but doesn't look the force of old, pulled up at Huntingdon 10 days ago. Hard to make a case for on chasing bow.

Winner of six hurdle races from 1m 7f to 2m 4f on good to firm and good ground. Pulled up 2 out when 33-1 at Huntingdon over 2m 4f (good) in a hurdle race won by Finula earlier this month on his latest outing.

GOODTHYNEAWAY has been in rude health this year, winning on three of his last four outings. Dan Skelton's six-year-old is turned out under a penalty for his six-length romp over a similar trip at Plumpton last weekend and rates the one to beat on the back of that effort. Regulation pulled-up at Huntington earlier in the month so the main danger appears to be Kilcara, who has been raised 4lb for her recent 2m victory at Warwick.

YAMUNA RIVER is very well treated at these weights and, compared to the Grade 3 contest she contested when last seen over hurdles, Chris Gordon's filly should find this easy going. Riviere Argentee collected bronze medals on both of her starts last month and is likely to give another good account, while Kahaleesi could potentially improve for the application of first-time cheekpieces.

Hat-trick seeking Mister Mister would have an obvious chance if lining up but he was declared to run at Uttoxeter on Saturday, so the vote goes to ALEXANDER THE GREY. The eight-year-old held a narrow advantage when a last-fence faller on his latest outing over C&D in September and he is sure to go close if arriving in the same form on his reappearance. Recent Worcester scorer Cillian's Well cannot be ruled out either.

Bit more like it when third at Wincanton 10 days ago but he's essentially tumbling in the weights without looking ready to take advantage.

Winner of four hurdle races and a NH flat race from 2m to 2m 6f on yielding and heavy ground. Third of 7 behind Harbour Force beaten 5l at 9-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Wincanton over 2m 5f (good to firm) earlier this month.

FLYING VERSE returned to form on his latest outing when runner-up at Southwell at the end of last month and the son of Yeats could find further improvement for the application of blinkers. Telson Barley won at Warwick earlier in the month and is respected off a 6lb higher mark, while Pahaska may have more to offer on her second outing after wind surgery.

Back on track with victory in 3m Taunton mares' handicap hurdle in February. Has seemed to have some problem the last twice, beaten a long way out on chasing debut last time. Cheekpieces tried now.

Twice a winner over hurdles in Ireland in 2017. Yet to really get going for new yard, though there's been more encouragement the last twice (chasing debut) and excellent claimer takes 3 lb off.

Perked up by application of blinkers when opening account over fences at Southwell in December but she's been far more miss than hit since.

Successful in a chase and a point-to-point at 3m on good to soft ground. Finished 18l behind Loch Linnhe when fourth of 6 at 5-2fav on her latest outing in a chase at Southwell over 3m (good) last month.

Hasn't won for a long time but seemed in the process of putting an end to that before being brought down back over fences at Fontwell 11 days ago. Should make amends provided she's none the worse.

A winner of a hurdle race at 2m on good to soft ground, but that win was over two years ago. Brought down when 11-2 at Fontwell over 2m 6f (good) in a chase won by Annie Angel earlier this month on her latest outing.

RUBY YEATS was still going well when brought down three out at Fontwell 11 days ago in a contest where The Kings Baby finished third. Gary Moore's mare remains on the same handicap mark on this occasion, which could see her gain compensation. The Kings Baby may benefit from being dropped 2lb, while the step up in distance could see Mrs Burbidge take a step forward after a couple of consistent efforts over shorter.
