HOLDBACKTHERIVER bounced backed to form when winning over fences at Bangor last time out and he should take plenty of beating off what could be a lenient hurdles mark. Solstice Star is already a three-time winner this season and he has to be given the utmost respect, while Nearly Perfect and Diger Daudaie also warrant consideration in an open contest.

DE RASHER COUNTER arguably arrives on the back of two career-best efforts, with the first being a defeat of subsequent Kempton winner Walt at Newbury. Last time out, he chased home a useful rival in a novice chase at Chepstow and Captain Cattistock was back in third on that occasion. The latter is 6lb worse off at these weights, having won at Exeter subsequently, and that sways the vote in favour of Emma Lavelle's gelding. The shortlist is completed by the in-form Lough Derg Farmer and Eureu Du Boulay.

ACEY MILAN was a high-class bumper performer last season and he left two costly defeats over hurdles behind him when winning at Plumpton. He does need to improve to defy an opening mark of 127 but he is likely to have more to offer now back up in trip. Theo's Charm wasn't beaten far in a C&D race that has worked out well and he should not be underestimated. Dr Sanderson has a similar profile to the selection and merits a place on the shortlist, along with Bold Plan and Magoo.
