WELL SMITTEN was still in front when unseating at the second last on hurdles debut at Lingfield in a race won by Jabulani and should be able to make this a real stamina test now back down to the minimum distance. Grand Morning is a half-brother to Edwulf and shaped well on his hurdling bow with likely improvement to come, while Benefit North and Nando both warrant respect on what they have shown so far.

RAISED ON GRAZEON claimed a notable scalp when winning at Catterick in novice company last time and steps back into handicap ranks holding leading claims, despite having to carry top weight. Beyondtemptation was only raised 4lb for scoring at Newcastle and is respected, while Presenting Rose and Berkshire Downs both represent shrewd connections and any market moves should be noted. A return to the scene of her C&D success two starts back can see Miss Tiggy throw her hat into the ring also.

A competitive contest but the marginal preference is for CONQUER GOLD, who bounced back to form when finishing second at Newcastle last time out. The eight-year-old could take some beating if he arrives here in the same form this afternoon. Trongate won well here last month and a 6lb rise for that victory is not overly harsh, although he does have to prove his stamina today. Mac N Cheese and Too Many Chiefs both have solid form claims but they have been hit hard in the ratings for previous victories.

BUFFALO BALLET wasn't beaten far in a more competitive contest than this at Carlisle last time out and certainly shouldn't be inconvenienced by this drop in distance. The 12-year-old brings consistency to the table and looks a solid value option. Hills Of Dubai comes back from a 298-day absence for a yard enjoying an excellent season and is respected, while Paddling has more on his plate here now upped 12lb after an easy Catterick success last month.
