Poetic Rhythm has some fair form in the book and should find this better ground in his favour after finishing 10th in the Albert Bartlett Novices' Hurdle last month, while Diese Des Bieffes was fifth in the same event and deserves plenty of respect for Nicky Henderson. Onefortheroadtom beat Aintree Grade 1 winner Lalor back in October and merits respect on that form, but this might go the way of CAPTAIN CATTISTOCK. Paul Nicholls' charge has enjoyed a progressive season, winning three times at Wincanton, and has Sam Twiston-Davies back on board for the first time since October.

Revitalised by a change of yards when easily scoring at Fakenham on belated return and career best to score there last month but likely to find this too competitive from 8 lb out of the weights.

Winner of four chases and a point-to-point from 2m 1f to 3m on ground varying from good to yielding. A winner at 5-2 in a chase at Fakenham over 2m 5f (soft) on his latest outing last month, beating Mortens Leam by 13l. Has won twice at Fakenham this season.

Harry Fry has won this prize for the last two years and relies on ART OF PAYROLL this time. The nine-year-old has just his third start for this yard and looks to be of interest after a wind operation and a 217-day absence. This decent ground and trip should suit and this trainer can ready one after a long absence. Kalondra drops back into handicap company after being outclassed in the Scilly Isles Novices' Chase at Sandown back in February, while Go Conquer is generally a good jumper and should go well. Frodon has a big weight to carry but should run his usual honest race under Bryony Frost.
