Emphatic winner of an 18.6f selling hurdle on yard debut at Stratford in July, so rather disappointing he hasn't matched that over either set of obstacles since. Short break may help ahead of this.

He has won two hurdle races and a NH flat race from 2m to 2m 3f on ground varying from good to yielding. Well beaten at 4-6fav behind Buble when fifth of 6 on his latest outing in a claiming hurdle race at Worcester over 2m 4f (good) in August.

Quirky sort who scored again at Stratford (22.5f) in July. Mixed bag in defeat subsequently (carrying head awkwardly as usual latest) but he's a major player at this level.

Winner of two hurdle races, a NH flat race and two chases from 2m to 3m 2f on good and good to soft ground. Finished 10l behind Deauville Dancer when sixth of 8 at 9-2 on his latest outing in a chase at Huntingdon over 2m 4f (good) earlier this month.

OSGOOD won at Huntingdon back in May and the drop into selling company can see him return to winning ways this afternoon. Cliffside Park won a similar event to this at Stratford earlier in the year but he does need to bounce back from a poor run at Worcester last time out. Others to consider are Changing The Guard, Hongkong Adventure and Honkytonktennessee.

DANCEINTOTHELIGHT has bounced back to form on his last couple of starts and he will be hard to beat if he repeats either of those efforts this afternoon. One For Billy put in a very disappointing display last time out but he is still unexposed and may have more to offer. Fixed Rate has dropped to his last winning mark and he is tried in a pair of cheekpieces for the first time today.

The Society Man will need his rivals to fail to complete to be winning this contest given his official rating of just 52. BAGAD BIHOUE has to give weight to all of his rivals today but he racked up a four-timer over fences earlier in the year. He did not appear to like Cartmel two starts ago and he faced a tough task against a talented stablemate last time out. Sam Red edges out Thumb Stone Blues to be the pick of the remainder.

Holryale has been kept busy throughout the summer and has knocked on the door the last twice. Dan Skelton's five-year-old should be fully fit for this and is considered. Olly Murphy runs two newcomers to his Warren Chase base, with Ataman and Red House Hill, who is interesting having arrived from Charles Byrnes. However, preference is for THECLOCKISTICKING who was second to a handy bumper horse of Harry Whittington's on debut and could be under the radar here for a handler whose horses are running well at present.

Fairly useful chaser in France and successful twice in novice hurdles since transferring to Britain. Much better than bare result back over fences at Market Rasen on return and worth another chance.

He has won two hurdle races and a chase from 2m 3f to 2m 5f on good to soft and soft ground. Well beaten at 6-1 behind Ballybolley when seventh of 13 on his latest outing in a chase at Market Rasen over 2m 5f (good to soft) last month.

Dual-hurdle winner CATAMARAN DU SEUIL was pitched into the deep end on his first UK chase start in a Market Rasen Listed contest and this looks much easier, with the extra distance set to be in the five-year-old's favour. Actinpieces has to be considered with his handler Pam Sly in fine form, while Sam England makes the trip south from her Yorkshire base with Raktiman who is 3lb higher than when last winning.

Smart in bumpers and kept the mistakes to a minimum when landing the odds at Exeter in May. Not disgraced when third in Warwick handicap 4 days later but may struggle to concede the weight to Momella.

He has won a hurdle race and two NH flat races from 2m to 2m 1f on good ground. Third of 5 behind Golden Birthday beaten 11l at 5-4fav on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Warwick over 2m 3f (good) in May.

No great shakes in bumpers/maiden hurdles for Stuart Crawford last season. May do better for new connections but plenty of improvement required to go close here in all probability.

Unplaced in all five starts. Well beaten at 12-1 behind Royal Village when 9th of 10 on his latest outing in a maiden hurdle race at Perth over 2m 4f (good) in April. Having his first run for a new stable today, previously with S R Crawford in Ireland.

Irish point winner who looked a useful prospect when making a successful start under Rules in Newton Abbot mares' novice hurdle in May. Good chance to follow up.

Successful in a hurdle race and a point-to-point at 2m 6f and 3m on good ground. A winner at 5-1 in a hurdle race at Newton Abbot over 2m 6f (good) on her latest outing in May, beating Brillare Momento by 2l.

Momella was a likeable winner on her hurdles debut at Newton Abbott back in May and a repeat of that should see Dan Skelton's mare go close once again here. However, a chance is taken that she may need this seasonal pipe opener, and therefore preference is for BRAHMS DE CLERMONT who travelled like a classy horse in a Chepstow legends race last weekend, which should have put him spot on for this encounter. Mullaghboy completes the line up and is waiting in the wings in case the front two fail to fire.
