COPPER KAY was a highly thought of bumper horse who had flattered to deceive over hurdles earlier this season. However, she went down on her shield when second in a valuable Grade 2 novice event for the females at Newbury and should be difficult to pass now on the back of that. Swatow put in a much improved performance on her second start for Emma Lavelle at Southwell last month and can be the one to follow the selection home, while Athy River has plenty of racecourse experience and that can help her be the next best.

Got his act together over fences of late, value for more than the narrow margin implies when doubling his tally at Ffos Las (23.8f) 8 days ago. Big player again under a penalty.

He has won a hurdle race and two chases from 2m 6f to 3m on ground varying from good to soft - heavy. Won on his latest outing in a chase when 13-8fav at Ffos Las over 3m (good) earlier this month, beating Bennys Girl by a neck. Carries a 7lb penalty today for that success. Has also won at Huntingdon this season.

Had no issue with step up in trip when supplementing his Exeter win at Taunton (23.9f) in November. Well below par back at latter venue in December though, and absent since.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m 2f and 3m on good ground. Well beaten at 8-1 behind Dropzone when 10th of 12 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Taunton over 3m (good to firm) in December last year.

Doesn't have a great deal of solid form but shaped well in 2m Chepstow handicap hurdle in November. Showed aptitude for chasing before seeming to go amiss at Plumpton on yard debut recently.

Placed in a hurdle race from nine starts. Pulled up 3 out when 12-1 at Plumpton over 2m 4f (good to soft) in a chase won by Goonjim last month on her chase debut.

Ian Williams' Rocknrollrambo could be hard to pass in search of a hat-trick of victories, however, he has more on his plate now with a further 7lb rise. It is interesting that HOW'S VIENNA skipped an engagement at Stratford on Saturday to come here and David Dennis's seven-year-old can go close to backing up his Wincanton victory in the hands of Sam Twiston-Davies, despite the 9lb hike from the assessor. Culm Counsellor recorded a pair of likeable wins on good ground, before blotting his copy book last time and has a chance if that run can be forgiven.

DOLOS was well fancied for the Fred Winter at the Festival when failing to figure, and let down supporters when trying to make amends at Ascot on his latest start, but this should be a much easier opportunity to return to the winner's enclosure and Paul Nicholls' juvenile can make amends. Gask Ridge represents Christian Williams' first Chepstow runner and he can give his former Ditcheat boss most to think about, with The Groove the next best of this quartet.

Venetia Williams is always worth a second look at this South Wales venue and her Cold March must enter calculations. However, he struggled at the Cheltenham last time and a chance may be worth taking on the tough and durable ULCK DU LIN, who is back down to his last winning mark and Festival-winning amateur pilot Bryony Frost takes a further 7lb off the back of the experienced Paul Nicholls campaigner. Red Spinner is also respected in the first time cheekpieces and with Sam Twiston-Davies is an eye-catching jockey booking, he is entitled to play a part in the finish.
