By no means disgraced when third in a 15-runner Newton Abbot selling handicap (18.5f) on return last month, but record in this sphere (0-22) tells a story.

Placed in eight hurdle races from 22 NH starts, also won a flat race in January. Third of 15 behind Buck Bravo beaten 7l at 12-1 on his latest outing in a selling hurdle race at Newton Abbot over 2m 2f (good) last month.

KNIGHT COMMANDER arrives on a hat-trick and is difficult to get away from in his present mood. Katie Powell got on well with the seven-year-old when the pair teamed up for success at Exeter last week and, versatile in regards to trip, he ticks plenty of boxes. Level Of Intensity performed well for the silver medal latest and a press of the repeat button will see him go close again. Christopher Robin also warrants respect.

CELESTIAL FORCE has to concede plenty of weight to his rivals, but the son of Sea The Stars, a nice type on the Flat, looks capable of doing so on what he's shown at Newton Abbot and Wincanton. Paul Nicholls' horses are flying and the master handler has found his charge another good opening under a top 5lb claimer in Bryan Carver, who won the opening race on this card 12 months ago. Caddyhill and Isolate are the main dangers.

Kim Bailey has his string in good form and DRUMREAGH is nicely positioned towards the foot of the handicap after a career-best effort over hurdles at Uttoxeter last time. Second on that occasion when improving for the step back up in distance and fitting of a first-time tongue-tie, the Court Cave mare makes plenty of appeal. Bomber's Moon and Kabrit look the main threats.
