HIDDEN FUTURE looks the one to beat in the opener despite having placed on all four of his starts over timber in maiden company. Many would question his ability to go through with his races but the Irish raider may appreciate a change in scenery and form behind Willie Mullins' Terminal looks strong enough. Elsewhere, the 118-rated Eurohunter is feared most on his return to novice company, with White Fusion another taken to make the frame.

Seven Is Lucky was a course winner two starts ago but looked slightly out of his depth at Wetherby latest and is now up to a mark of 106. With that in mind, RIGHT ENOUGH has threatened a win and remains well treated off this mark of 97. The step back up in trip here should suit him down to the ground and there could be more to come from the lightly-raced seven-year-old, though Crop Walker is another to take seriously.

Master d'Or bounced back to winning ways at Fontwell when last sighted but must now defy a 7lb rise in the ratings. Sophie Leech's veteran warrants the utmost respect but preference is for last year's winner SAMMY SPIDERMAN. The son of Karinga Bay scored off a mark of 83 here 12 months ago but has done enough this season to suggest he can get competitive today off this 8lb higher mark. Penalised winner Mr Woods is another set to run a big race.

Nelson du Ronceray was lucky to emerge on top in a handicap hurdle here last time but his strike-rate over fences is an enviable one and another big run looks assured. However, marginal preference is for MALLUSK. He didn't seem to get the trip when stepped back up to 2m5f at Lingfield but had previously been going well over 2m and looks worth another chance off his present handicap mark, especially with conditions in his favour. Comfortable Sedgefield scorer The Thirsty Bricky is also accorded respect.

CIRCUS CLOWN has produced a string of solid efforts over hurdles and fences this season, including a second over 2m on his penultimate outing here in January. The return to this sort of trip seemed to suit when second again in a handicap chase at Kelso last month and the testing conditions are certainly up his street. The same cannot be said of Catterick winner Rudemeister, but he is less exposed than the selection and could make his mark if the ground dries up. Top-weight Helium is not out of it either.

ALLANARD won in tremendous style here in January and was still a length in front before falling two out when bidding to follow up under a penalty last time out. He's been given time to recovery from that unsettling experience and although now competing off his revised rating (6lb higher than last time), there could still be more to come and the drop back to 2m4f will do him no harm either. The returning Flying Squad is an obvious threat if resuming where he left off in November, while Alexander Oats is another entitled to figure.
