Benechenko has proved frustrating to follow so far over hurdles and arrives with a bit to prove after finishing second when heavily backed in a weaker race at Bangor last time out. The booking of Bryony Frost takes the eye, but preference here is for RHAEGAR. Six lengths behind the progressive White Moon last month, the six-year-old stayed on well and looks poised to relish this step up in trip. Natter Jack Croak could prove good enough for third.

CHOOSEYOURWEAPON showed a good attitude when winning on his debut under Rules for Evan Williams over course and distance four weeks ago and could prove capable of defying a penalty. The 210,000 pounds purchase idled in front last time, but is likely to have learnt from the experience and can hold off the likes of Golden Sunrise, who looks a fair long-term prospect for Colin Tizzard, and Mance Rayder, who is surely better than he showed at Exeter recently.

ICE COOL CHAMPS was impressive when scoring by six lengths over hurdles at Uttoxeter and is backed to follow up here despite the stiff opening chase mark he has been handed. Billy Bronco was well beaten on his chasing bow but has to be respected at a track his handler often does well at, while Scotchtown and Walt are others who are capable of being competitive with slight improvement here.

Was thriving over the larger obstacles when last seen in June 2015, but has been off over 2 years and likely best watched on his belated return.

Has won three hurdle races and five chases from 2m 3f to 3m 1f on ground varying from good to soft, but last win was over two years ago. A winner at 6-1 in a chase at Ffos Las over 3m (good) on his latest outing in June '15, beating Sir Mattie by 8l.

Opened his account in a 23.3f heavy-ground novice at Uttoxeter in February, but looked rusty when well-beaten on handicap debut at Ffos Las last month. Should at least be shaper for the run.

Successful in a hurdle race and a point-to-point at 2m 7f and 3m on heavy ground. Well beaten at 8-1 behind Prime Venture when sixth of 9 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Ffos Las over 3m (soft) last month.

Ended last year in tremendous form, landing a quick double before a good third Uttoxeter in March. Below that form on his return in October, but no surprise to see him get back on the up here.

He has won three hurdle races and a NH flat race from 2m 2f to 3m 1f on ground varying from good to soft to soft - heavy. Well beaten at 16-1 when seventh of 8 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Uttoxeter over 2m 7f (soft) in October.

Found immediate improvement for this yard, winning at Uttoxeter in July, and even better on the figures when runner-up next time. He’s likely to continue heading in the right direction.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m 7f on good and soft ground. Beaten 1/2l by Blue Comet when second of 8 at 6-4fav on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Market Rasen over 2m 7f (good) in August.

Hasn't been shaping as though in top form at present, including at this course last month, but he's feasibly treated if he can put it all together.

He has won two hurdle races and a point-to-point from 2m 6f to 3m on good to soft and soft ground. Finished 16l behind Sykes when fifth of 8 at 7-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Ffos Las over 2m 6f (heavy) last month.

Offered little encouragement back over timber on return, and fared no better loaded up with equipment at Wetherby last time. Question marks over his attitude linger.

He has won three hurdle races from 2m 3f to 2m 6f on ground varying from good to soft. Unseated rider when 10-1 at Wetherby over 3m (soft) in a chase won by Daklondike last month on his latest outing.

Picked up where he left off last season, proving his stamina over longer trips to complete the hat-trick at Exeter (23.1f) last month. Remains unexposed and will continue to give a good account.

Supreme Steel has not been out of the top two in three starts since joining Dr Richard Newland in the summer and is likely to be involved once again here. However, preference is for PRESENT TIMES, who returned in winning fashion at Exeter to land a hat-trick and he looks a soft ground specialist who could excel here and continue his progression. Zanstra is respected, but will need to sharpen up his jumping, while Souriyan and Steel Summit are others to consider.
