Disappointing in a couple of chase starts last season but did win twice over hurdles early in 2016 so he's well worth a look in the betting.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m 7f and 3m 2f on good and heavy ground. Pulled up at the 12th when 10-3 at Stratford over 2m 7f (soft) in a chase won by Alberobello in March on his latest outing.

Successful in a hurdle race and a chase at 2m 4f and 2m 5f on good and soft ground, but last win was over two years ago. Beaten 4l by Too Many Chiefs when second of 9 at 11-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Ayr over 3m (heavy) last month.

THOMAS PATRICK won well at Exeter 10 days ago and he will be hard to beat today if running to the same level of form. Un Guet Apens is another last time out winner in the field, following his recent Carlisle success, and he has an obvious chance today. Achill Road Boy, Chicoria and Pop Rockstar are others to consider.

Ballydine brings the best form to the table, based on his second-placed finish to Barters Hill in a Grade 2 novice hurdle, but the 607-day break is an obvious concern. Rolling Dylan won a handicap off a mark of 132 last time out but the 5lb penalty he has to carry today leaves him vulnerable. With that in mind, the preference is for SAINTE LADYLIME, who also has to carry a penalty but being a mare, she still gets weight from her rivals this afternoon. The six-year-old beat a talented rival last time out and she has an obvious chance today.

NIBLAWI ran well in some very competitive handicaps on the Flat this year and his peak official rating on the Flat was 93. Based on that evidence the five-year-old could take plenty of beating if taking to hurdles this afternoon. Shivermetimbers looks to have a bright future having won a Warwick bumper on his sole start to date, while Joke Dancer completes the shortlist for this event.

JUST GEORGIE came in for solid support on his return to chasing when second at Bangor last time out and was unlucky behind a well-treated animal. He looks well worth a go over this extra distance and could take advantage of a winnable opening. Purple Harry did it well at Kelso when last seen in May but looks likely to be using this to prepare for the Eider Chase at Newcastle early next year, while the consistent Whiskey Chaser isn't easy to win with but should be thereabouts.

Off the mark over fences at the third attempt at Carlisle in February, but he’s still in search of his first win over hurdles and faces a stiff task against a few promising rivals.

Successful in a chase and a point-to-point at 2m and 3m on soft ground. Finished 11l behind Mumgos Debut when fifth of 7 at 10-3fav on his latest outing in a chase at Carlisle over 2m 4f (good to soft) in April.

Fair form over hurdles in a couple of starts at Ayr, but will need to step up on that if he’s to match it with a couple of these.

Placed in a hurdle race and two point-to-points from 11 starts. Beaten 3 1/2l by Victoria Says when second of 11 at 14-1 on his latest outing in a maiden hurdle race at Ayr over 2m 4f (heavy) last month, his only placing from 11 starts.

RAVENSDALE was only beaten by a well-regarded Ben Pauling bumper horse at Southwell when last seen in October and could build on those exertions now tackling further over hurdles. An Irish point-to-point winner and out of a half-sister to the classy Time For Rupert, he looks sure to appreciate this test. Duke Debarry has some form behind some potentially smart novices' and has to be respected for the Nicky Henderson team, while Spider's Bite remains open to improvement and is another to note.
