This is not the strongest of races and the nod goes to GIN AND TONIC, who won over C&D last month and a 3lb rise for that success should be workable. Hurricane Rita was disappointing last time out but not all horses handle heavy ground at Ffos Las and it is too soon to be writing her off. Yourholidayisover is not a prolific winner but he can go well in a race of this nature.

RIO QUINTO was an easy winner on his hurdles debut over 2m4f here last month and that form is clearly the best on offer here. He must be held in some regard having made his Rules debut in a Listed bumper at Cheltenham in November. Earlshill is next on the list having made the frame in his last two starts, while Oscar Star also warrants respect.

HOLLY BUSH HENRY arrives here having won a Class 2 handicap over hurdles at Sandown two starts ago before facing a tough task in a similar event over fences at Kempton last time. The son of Yeats has less on his plate here and can outclass his rivals. Popelys Gull bumped into a useful rival when finishing second here last month and he could prove to be the biggest threat to the selection. The Boss's Dream and More Than Luck are the pick of the remainder.

DOLPHIN VISTA was rated 102 when last seen on the Flat and a solid enough round of hurdling would more than suffice here for this classy five-year-old to make a winning start over the jumps. Captiva Island has first-time cheekpieces and Richard Johnson back on board after a couple of consistent efforts of late for Olly Murphy, while Potters Midnight probably needs better ground than this and might be seen to better effect when handicapping.

Not for the first time this season shaped much better than the distance beaten suggests at Ayr (24.1f, heavy) earlier this month. Drop back in trip should suit and respected.

Successful in a hurdle race and a chase at 2m 4f and 2m 5f on soft and heavy ground. Well beaten at 13-2 behind Lochnell when seventh of 10 on his latest outing in a chase at Ayr over 3m (heavy) earlier this month.

Couldn't step up on his reappearance/stable debut to any meaningful degree at Sedgefield on penultimate start. Unseated his rider last time, but it's still early days with his new handler.

A winner of a point-to-point at 3m, but that win was over two years ago. Unseated rider when 6-1 at Warwick over 2m 4f (heavy) in a chase won by Native Robin in December last year on his latest outing.

Fair hurdle/chase winner. Wasted no time getting back to form when third of 8 in handicap chase at Southwell (20.3f) last month, despite needing stronger gallop. Considered.

He has won two hurdle races and a chase from 2m to 2m 4f on good to soft and soft ground. Third of 8 behind Weyburn beaten 3 1/2l at 5-1 on his latest outing in a chase at Southwell over 2m 4f (soft) in December last year.

Not in much form of late but bettered recent efforts when runner-up in a race he won last year over C&D 21 days go. Overall profile tempers enthusiasm though.

A winner of a chase at 2m 5f on soft ground. Beaten 2 1/2l by Little Windmill when second of 6 at 11-4 on his latest outing in a chase over this course and distance (heavy) earlier this month.

Remains a maiden after 22 starts under Rules. Probably needed the run returning from a long absence when pulled up at Southwell last month, but others are still preferred.

Placed in three hurdle races and a chase from 22 starts. Pulled up at the 15th when 50-1 at Southwell over 3m 2f (good to soft) in a chase won by Silent Man in December last year on his latest outing.

WISH IN A WELL seldom runs a bad race at this venue and his stamina can get him home in what is likely to be a tactical affair. Mondo Cane stayed on well at Southwell last time out but doesn't look open to much more improvement now at the age of 11. Achill Road Boy is better than what he showed last time at Ayr , while Wood Pigeon wasn't without his backers at Warwick last time when crashing out early.

Acquitted herself well on chase debut back from a lengthy absence at Ludlow last spring. However, it's been all downhill since and she's hard to recommend at present.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m and 2m 4f on good and good to soft ground, but last win was over four years ago. Well beaten at 66-1 behind Woolstone One when 11th of 16 on her latest outing in a hurdle race at Doncaster over 2m 3f (soft) earlier this month.
