Fairly useful hurdler who made a winning start over fences at Uttoxeter (2m) in May. Fair efforts since, but handicap defeats suggest he has his work cut out against 2 promising unexposed rivals here.

He has won three hurdle races and a chase from 2m to 2m 3f on good and soft ground. Beaten 3 1/2l by Kauto Riko when second of 5 at 15-8 on his latest outing in a chase at Taunton over 2m (soft) last month.

A very competitive event despite the small field but the nod goes to THE UNIT, who arrives here following a short break. It was not the strongest of Grade 1 novice hurdles that he finished third in last April but the son of Gold Well is very talented and he displayed promise in both previous chase starts. Copain De Classe finished behind Space Oddity at Ascot in November and there is no obvious reason why that form should be reversed today.

STOICAL PATIENT is a highly-progressive mare, arriving here with four wins from her last five starts, and a 6lb rise for her latest victory may underestimate her ability. The Last But One was a convincing winner at Musselburgh recently and the handicapper has been very fair by increasing his mark by just 4lb. Sonoftheking is the pick of the remainder based on two decent efforts late last year.

LIL ROCKERFELLER won this race two years ago and he rates the one to beat today, despite a disappointing effort last time out. On his penultimate start the seven-year-old won the Grade 2 Ascot Hurdle in November and it is less than 12 months since his second-placed finish in the Stayers' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. Old Guard is another likeable type and he is only rated 1lb lower than the selection but gets 2lb from him today. Air Horse One and Clyne are others who can make their presence felt this afternoon.

PUPPET WARRIOR built on his maiden hurdle second over C&D when runner-up over a similar trip in a novice hurdle at Plumpton last time and is expected to take a hand on these terms. Niblawi makes some appeal on his Haydock second in December and has place possibilities, though a bigger danger may be penalised 100-1 Ludlow winner Call Me Sid, who is unlikely to be underestimated in the betting this time with that victory now under his belt.
