Point winner MOUNT RUSHMOORE was beaten by under a length in a novice hurdle at Exeter last month and is expected to take closer order with the benefit of that initial experience now behind him. Champagne Champ kept on at the same pace from the last when third at Wincanton last time and is a potential improver now upped in trip, while 130-rated Paul Nicholls representative Blu Cavalier is also expected to be thereabouts on these terms.

Runner-up in Reynoldstown at Ascot 12 months ago but has made the track just 3 times since, running poorly at Warwick 6 weeks ago. Clear form pick if back to best, though.

He has won four hurdle races from 2m 4f to 3m 2f on ground varying from good to soft to heavy, but last win was over two years ago. Well beaten at 4-1 when last of 5 on his latest outing in a chase at Warwick over 3m (soft) last month.

ROLLING DYLAN was touched off by a nose in a handicap chase over a similar trip at Taunton in January and should go close if running to a similar level of form this afternoon. Flintham receives 6lb from the selection and is worth monitoring in the betting on his first start since undergoing wind surgery. Robin Of Locksley, having his second start for Sophie Leech, needs to step up on his last run at Cheltenham in order to figure.

APPLESANDPIERRES is 4lb higher than when striking over the extended 2m3f at Wetherby in April and hinted his winning turn was fast approaching when beaten by under a length in second over 2m4f at Uttoxeter last time. Diable De Sivola was still in contention when falling two out at Newbury and is the one expected to put up most resistance. The pick of the remainder may be Zeroeshadesofgrey, who merits a market check on his first start since undergoing wind surgery.

Useful hurdler/chaser but offered little on return from 22-month absence at Wincanton over Christmas. Plenty to prove after that.

He has won a hurdle race, a chase and a point-to-point from 2m to 2m 3f on good and heavy ground, but last win was over two years ago. Pulled up at the 6th when 18-1 at Wincanton over 2m 5f (heavy) in a hurdle race won by Protek Des Flos in December last year on his latest outing.

Pretty useful hurdler/chaser at his peak but questions to answer after finishing well beaten on last month's return from a long absence.

He has won two hurdle races, a NH flat race and a chase from 2m to 3m on ground varying from good to soft to heavy, but last win was over two years ago. Well beaten at 16-1 when seventh of 8 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Huntingdon over 3m 1f (soft) last month.

Paul Nicholls' runs two here and with Ptit Zig having to carry top weight, it could be worth chancing his other runner, CONNETABLE. Bryony Frost's 3lb claim has been used to great effect this season and she has a great chance here for another Saturday winner. Her mount has been going well lately, with recent impressive efforts at Musselburgh and Kempton amongst the best form on offer, and a mark of 136 looks more than workable. The six-year-old can account for Coeur Blimey, who was sixth in the Lanzarote and fourth in the Betfair Hurdle, and Sainte Ladylime, who was second in a Grade 2 to the classy La Bague Au Roi last time out.
