Paul Nicholls has won this race three times in the last four years (his odds-on runner fell last year) and GRAND SANCY looks poised to enhance to those statistics. An impressive winner at Chepstow on his reappearance before finding a smart Olly Murphy-trained gelding too good at Kempton last time, there was no shame in that run and he can return to winning ways here. Shiroccan Roll showed promise when second at Worcester last time, while Melchior King can prove best of the remainder.

Quirky sort who bounced back to form when making all at Ffos Las in May. Disappointed next time but back on track when third at Plumpton (25.7f) in September. Still, revised mark demands more.

He has won two chases and a point-to-point from 2m 7f to 3m on good to firm and good ground. Third of 6 behind Little Windmill beaten 8l at 11-2 on his latest outing in a chase at Plumpton over 3m 2f (good) in September.

Capeland doesn't look the most resolute in a finish but any further rain would boost his prospects, while Buster Thomas appeared a little ring-rusty at Market Rasen back in September but is likely to have benefitted greatly from that outing. Ballinure needs to bounce back after failing to beat a rival home at Newton Abbot last time and this can go to FORTH BRIDGE, who just bumped into some promising types at Uttoxeter last time but travelled well and should enjoy this slight drop in distance.

Little Miss Poet is a capable type on her day but wouldn't want any further rain to arrive, while Miss Crick is consistent but might just lack a class edge in a field containing as much depth as this. If You Say Run is a course winner and her second at Sandown in February probably sets the form standard, but she was pulled up when last seen at Newbury. Aine O'Connor has built up a good relationship with LITTERALE CI this year and, having seen the form of their Newton Abbot success off 6lb lower boosted by the fourth scoring since, the pair can give Harry Fry a third win in this contest since 2013.

Patchy form over hurdles but looked a natural when making a winning start over fences at Worcester last month and open to improvement.

BAGS GROOVE clearly benefitted from his debut experience over fences when accounting for a 142-rated hurdler in a novice chase at Ffos Las last month. That performance suggests that Harry Fry's gelding has a bright future over the larger obstacles and he has to be given the utmost respect. Secret Investor returned from his summer break with a victory in a Grade 2 novices' hurdle at Chepstow and this former winning pointer is an obvious threat to the selection. The rest only have minor claims but Majestic Moll is the pick of them.

IF THE CAP FITS created a very impression when winning three novice hurdles last season and he can take this contest on his way to bigger targets later in the season. We Have A Dream is another who had a successful campaign last time around, which includes a Grade 1 victory at Aintree in April. The penalty he has to carry for that success is a concern but he is the biggest threat to the selection. Verdana Blue has had the benefit of a recent run but she still needs to improve to be successful today, while Redicean completes the shortlist.
