An open looking race to kick things off, in which ROYAL ENTOURAGE edges the vote. He produced a career best performance when striking over 2m4f at Musselburgh latest and is theoretically only 4lb higher today with Joanna Mason's claim taken into consideration. Dar Es Salaam got within half-a-length of winning under Rebecca Sparkes at Lingfield last time and has definite claims despite a 2lb rise, while Uttoxeter scorer On The Right Path certainly isn't out of it either.

A chance is taken on FLORA'S PRIDE. She has responded positively to the application of blinkers on her last couple of starts (worn again today) and can give another good account under talented 7lb claimer, Edmond Linehan. Shan Valley is of interest dropping back in trip having seemingly failed to get home over 3m at Newcastle last time, while Dane Cottage continues to creep down the handicap and is worthy of consideration in first-time cheekpieces.

SAVEIRO comfortably dispatched of Zazamix over this trip at Wetherby last Tuesday and, with Lucy Alexander's claim cancelling out the majority of his 7lb penalty, he will be well fancied to follow up. Andrew Crook's charge is just 2lb better off for an 8-length beating that day and will struggle to turn the tables, so it could be up to Gentleman Jeff, who narrowly missed out over C&D on his penultimate outing, to give the red-hot favourite most to think about.

This looks a match between the two past winners. Aland Islands has yet to taste defeat in a couple of NH starts and makes plenty of appeal being Tony McCoy's only mount on the card, but STAR IN FLIGHT edges the vote for Donald McCain. He won effortlessly over 2m here on his penultimate outing and would most likely have completed a C&D double but for unseating Jason Maguire at the second-last more recently. Of the others, Rosairlie appeals most.

Stopped Out and Araucaria both continue to run well without winning, while Quel Ballistic appears to be having problems in the jumping department. The vote, therefore, goes to Evan Williams' Welsh raider BRUSLINI. He has run well in each of his three hurdle starts this term and is sure to have been well schooled prior to today's chasing debut. Western Bound won a couple of hurdle prizes at Perth last summer and, despite being the outsider here, he's no forlorn hope.
