NORTH STAR OSCAR was given a patient ride to score at Worcester three weeks ago and could take some stopping here. Harry Teal's 3lb claim helps to offset some of the damage done by the assessor (risen 8lb), and this five-year-old has scope for further improvement. Fifth Symphony has had a wind operation and ran well here 11 months ago, while Passam also warrants plenty of respect on his return to action.

Useful 23f winner over hurdles. Form figures not the most encouraging over fences, though he was still going well when falling 4 out on return at Hexham (3m) 4 weeks ago. Blinkers reached for.

He has won a hurdle race, a NH flat race and a point-to-point from 2m to 3m on good and heavy ground, but last win was over two years ago. Fell 4 out when 6-4 at Hexham over 3m (soft) in a chase won by Buddha Scheme last month on his latest outing.

SAM SPINNER took a while to get going when beating a solid yardstick in the shape of Beakstown on his chase debut here and could thrive now tackling further. A Grade 1 winner over timber, and second in the Stayers' Hurdle at Cheltenham in March, he will have learnt plenty from that experience 16 days ago and is worth following. Ardlethen beat Lisnagar Oscar last month in this sphere at Chepstow, while first-time blinkered Senor Lombardy also merits some consideration.

Crealion won in France on his last start for old connections five months ago and is interesting on stable debut for Tom George, while Zeb Spirit was travelling well when coming to grief three-out here last month and wears a first-time hood now. Preference, though, is for Dan Skelton's LANGER DAN. A cosy winner at Ludlow 23 days ago, the three-year-old lacks Flat experience but seems to jump accurately and has plenty of scope for improvement.

BORN SURVIVOR has a fine record on his seasonal return, his form figures read 1211, and despite a career-high rating of 152, Dan Skelton's gelding is taken to defy top-weight in his attempt to win this contest for the second year in succession. Happy Diva achieved a good level of form last term, beating subsequent Grand National runner-up Magic Of Light in a strong Listed event at Huntingdon, and she is respected along with the consistent Guitar Pete.
