Farmer Boy has been running consistently well in class 4 handicaps and warrants respect on his first start at Plating level, but race conditions suggest that this should be between UTILITY and Sleep Easy. Both drop significantly in grade after finishing down the field in the same Cheltenham handicap last month (with just a length between them), but David Bridgwater's charge is 4lb in front on official figures and he shades the verdict.

Dothraki Prince has finished third in three bumpers and is likely to show up well on his hurdling bow, but it might be a case of third time lucky for BATHSHEBA BAY. Both placed efforts to date have been encouraging and this drop in class will make him difficult to beat. Derek Duval and Czech Her Out, equipped with a first-time hood on her debut over timber, are others to note.

WILD MAX was Group 3-placed on the Flat in Germany and, although he's entitled to be a little rusty on his first outing in 13 months, this represents a great opening for him to make a winning start over hurdles. Brigade of Guards makes his first appearance for Tim Vaughan (previously trained by Alan King) and is unlikely to be far away if running to his official rating of 118, while Mandalayan and Masters Legacy both merit a second look in the betting market.

Achieved plenty despite winning only once as a novice hurdler and going to be even better over fences judged by his impressive success at Carlisle (2m) on return. Longer trip sure to suit. Exciting.

He has won a hurdle race, a NH flat race, a chase and a point-to-point from 2m to 3m on good to soft and soft ground. A winner at 9-4 in a chase at Carlisle over 2m (good to soft) on his latest outing last month, beating Good Boy Bobby by a head.

Successful fairly useful hurdler who should have come on for his reappearance in the Persian War at Chepstow and should prove just as good over fences in time for in-form yard.

A winner of a hurdle race at 2m 4f on good ground. Well beaten at 33-1 behind Thyme Hill when eighth of 9 on his latest outing in a Grade 2 hurdle race in the Group 2 Unibet Persian War Novices' Hurdle at Chepstow over 2m 3f (good to soft) last month.

Won 3 handicap hurdles in summer 2018 and has generally held his form well this campaign. Takes on some classier and exciting chasers on his first go at the game and has a stiff task.

He has won three hurdle races from 2m to 2m 2f on ground varying from good to firm to good to soft. Finished 18l behind Irish Prophecy when fifth of 6 at 5-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Wincanton over 2m 4f (good to firm) last month.

Useful 3-time novice hurdle winner over 2m (including here and a Kempton Grade 2) and should be just as good over fences, looking in need of the run/experience on his return at Exeter. Better to come.

He has won three hurdle races and a NH flat race at 2m on good to firm and good ground. Beaten 2 3/4l by Litterale Ci when second of 4 at 4-5fav on his chase debut at Exeter over 2m 1f (good) last month.

BREWIN'UPASTORM displayed a good attitude to win narrowly over 2m on his chase debut at Carlisle last month and the extra couple of furlongs here should only help his chances. The son of Milan was Grade 1-placed as a novice hurdler and he can take this race on his way to bigger targets. Southfield Stone won a Grade 2 over hurdles last season and he is clearly the main threat to the selection, while Paint The Dream edges out Romanor to be the pick of the remainder.

Bumper winner who readily landed a Market Rasen maiden last season. Disappointing so far in handicaps (fell early at Wincanton on return) but she's in good hands and could yet get back on track.

Successful in a hurdle race and a NH flat race at 2m 1f and 2m 5f on good ground. Fell at the 3rd when 12-1 at Wincanton over 2m 5f (good to soft) in a hurdle race won by Misty Bloom earlier this month on her latest outing.
