Resumed winning ways at Warwick (29f) in April and far from disgraced when fourth at Newton Abbot last week, perhaps just in need of the run. No reason why he won't build on that.

Built on pair of runner-up efforts at Fontwell when resuming winning ways over hurdles here in July. Suffered a brace of heavy defeats since but too well weighted to totally ignore him.

BERMEO escapes a penalty for his victory in a conditionals' contest at Newton Abbot last week and while he didn't exactly win with his head in his chest, it proved at least that he can score off this mark. The veteran Cruising Bye retains plenty of enthusiasm and stepped forward from a second here to go one better, again over course and distance. Torhousemuir arrives on the back of a career-best performance to fill the runner-up berth at Stratford and won't remain a maiden for much longer.

LEONCAVALLO has been revitalised by the switch to Dr Richard Newland's stable, starting off with a decisive Ludlow triumph before a cracking effort to make the frame in the Galway Hurdle. He isn't bred for fences but providing he can put in a clear round, his quality should see him home. Cultivator has had a crack at the bigger obstacles before, with limited success, and it isn't ideal that he arrives following a hurdles tumble at Newton Abbot, but he has a touch of class. Flashing Glance was a solid third on his chasing bow and will be waiting to pick up the pieces should the top two falter.

Made a winning debut over fences in 5-runner Worcester handicap last month. Lost no caste in defeat when runner-up under a penalty at Sedgefield next time and remains open to improvement as a chaser.

Theo has won six of his nine starts since coming under the care of Dr Richard Newland, most recently following a seven-month absence over course and distance, and a 5lb rise doesn't appear too harsh. Dinsdale lost little in defeat at Sedgefield, and Roman Flight has slipped to a handy mark, but PETER THE MAYO MAN gets the nod. The eight-year-old wasn't entirely reliable for Paul Nicholls but he has been snapped up for 26,000 pounds since he was last seen and Dan Skelton doesn't usually take long to find the key to new recruits.

Tim Hyde doesn't cross the Irish Sea too often so Stacey Sue has to be respected, especially after backing up her Cork success with a commendable second at Down Royal. She takes on a decent prospect in REPRESENTED, though, with Anthony Honeyball's charge gradually working his way into form, and he bumped into a good one at Fontwell. Berboru has offered some encouragement between the flags, and Golden Promise is an interesting newcomer from the Jonjo O'Neill yard.
