TIME TO MOVE ON scored in both his bumper appearances in the manner of a top-class performer, beating a dual winner by 10 lengths on his debut at Exeter. Fergal O'Brien's exciting prospect should prove hard to beat if in the same form and can account for Two For Gold, who was not disgraced on his hurdles bow in a Cheltenham Grade 2. Thelongwayaround and Mountain Hawk have the potential to build on their recent course appearances and make each-way appeal.

OVERAWED was beaten less than a length when a silver medalist over 2m at Hereford last time and a 2lb rise for that first outing, her first for handler John Groucott, is fair as he looks to go one better up in trip. Benny's Secret is interesting on his chase debut following an encouraging reappearance over timber at Kelso, while Dulce Panem and Lady Master could be others suited by a switch to fences (the former has run over them in France).

Lightly raced since winning a Southwell handicap on 2016 reappearance. Good effort on the figures when third back from another break at Bangor in October but he did hint at temperament.

A winner of a hurdle race at 2m 4f on good ground, but that win was over two years ago. Third of 14 behind Erick Le Rouge beaten 4l at 10-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Bangor over 2m 4f (good) in October.

DEDIGOUT is just 2lb higher than when rattling the crossbar twice in the early part of 2018 and Micky Hammond's veteran is more than capable of winning a race of this nature, having been a Grade 1 scorer at his peak. Stablemate Wig Wam Wiggle is interesting having won his latest outing at Hexham, but has been off the track for over a year which tempers enthusiasm. Aliandy has the chance to build on his promising Bangor reappearance and completes the shortlist.

Didn't hold his form over hurdles and, after a reasonable chase debut at Aintree on return last season, he went backwards again after. Risky proposition on comeback/debut for this yard.

Successful in a hurdle race and a point-to-point at 2m 4f and 3m on good to soft ground, but last win was over two years ago. Pulled up at the 9th when 9-1 at Southwell over 3m (good) in a chase won by Steps And Stairs in April on his latest outing. Having his first run for a new stable today.

LITTLE BRUCE found Haydock's new style fences too much for him as he capsized at the second obstacle when last seen a fortnight ago. He won well at Hexham the time before and, on that showing, can defy a career-high mark. Stable companion Skipthescales appeals as the type to benefit from jumping fences and is capable of improving from his return over hurdles at Aintree, while Fawsley Spirit is respected despite unseating his rider at Ffos Las most recently.
