The 2m4f trip may have been against ARTHINGTON in a very competitive handicap at Cheltenham last time and he could take plenty of beating today based on his previous efforts. The five-year-old had been extremely consistent over hurdles prior to that latest run and a second-placed finish at Sandown under a double penalty in February is particularly strong form. Fin And Game looks to have a bright future based on his victories over hurdles during the winter, while Brahms De Clermont and Deyrann de Carjac are others who make plenty of appeal.

Our Lucas must be high up on the shortlist arriving here on a hat-trick and the course and distance winner has the assistance of leading rider Brian Hughes once again, while Martila was a smart winner over track and trip in November and warrants respect. Mick Thonic is interesting blinkered on his return to hurdles with Dino Velvet still lurking on a winnable mark. However, a chance is taken on EMBOLE, who was not disgraced in the Fred Winter at Cheltenham and competes off a 4lb lower mark here.

DARIUS DES BOIS improved considerably after a wind operation when landing a handicap hurdle at Newbury last month and he looks more than capable of defying an 8lb rise in the weights despite this looking a tougher task on paper. Uncle Alastair should benefit from a first-time tongue tie and potentially for a sounder surface, while Spider's Bite and Ocean Cove both appear to have more to offer in handicaps.

Finished 20l behind Old Guard when fifth of 8 at 28-1 on his latest outing in a Grade 2 hurdle race in the Group 2 totepool National Spirit Hurdle at Fontwell over 2m 3f (good to soft) in February.

Smart hurdler who became disappointing over fences. Responded well to headgear when making most in handicap hurdle at Doncaster in December but has underperformed twice since.
