Now firmly in the veteran stage but not completely discounted from a further-reduced mark after last month's comeback at Taunton.

Winner of five hurdle races and a point-to-point from 2m to 3m on good to firm and good ground, but last win was over three years ago. Pulled up 3 out when 20-1 at Taunton over 2m (good) in a hurdle race won by Texan Nomad last month on his latest outing.

It is hard to oppose KEREMAN, who arrives having won his last three starts easily, and even a 13lb rise in the ratings for his latest victory may not be enough to stop him from taking this contest as well. Billy My Boy failed to fire on his seasonal return but it is far too soon to be writing him off. Others to consider are Chief Brody and Atlantic Storm.

The veteran Riddlestown struck up a good partnership with Bryony Frost when scoring at Plumpton and warrants respect under a 7lb penalty, while Cap Horner appeared to find the ground too lively when second at Wincanton and faces a potentially similar issue this time. The percentage call is to side with MAX FORTE, who was second here four weeks ago before finding one too good again at Exeter a fortnight later. He won't mind the step up in trip and can strike now back over fences.

Dino Velvet was second in the Scottish Champion Hurdle and a respectable sixth in the Swinton at Haydock, but he could be vulnerable to something less exposed. Not Never has won three of his last four but needs to up his game at this level, and this can go the way of MAGIC DANCER, who was second in the Betfair Hurdle at Ascot in February and then travelled well before claiming third at Cheltenham off this mark.
