Former top Flat stayer HIGH JINX made the switch to jumping relatively late in life but he has been revitalised by it and after winning his first couple of NH starts, lost little in defeat when second to a subsequent scorer at Market Rasen. He can successfully concede weight all round, but Falak struck on the level at Carlisle to back up a Kilbeggan timber triumph, while Aye Right offered plenty of encouragement last term, and both are lively dangers.

OIGHEAR DUBH has been holding his form well in Ireland, following up a Tipperary success with third placings at Tramore and Killarney. He still has plenty of scope for improvement in this sphere and is preferred to Trongate, who found only one too strong on his first crack at the larger obstacles at Perth. Ever So Much bumped into a bang in-form rival at Sedgefield so there was plenty of merit in his effort to claim the runner-up berth.

A wind operation helped Rory's Valentine spring a 50/1 surprise at Perth in May but he must prove it wasn't a fluke, while Superefficient is on something of a retrieval mission after letting down favourite-backers at Tramore. Mitcd has done likewise on two of her last three starts but still commands attention, although another chance is given to SLEEP IN FIRST because he remains well treated at this discipline compared to his chase rating.

Cubomania struck on his most recent visit to these shores at Perth but was disappointing at Downpatrick last time, while Hargam won has he pleased at Warwick two starts ago but was beaten a long way at Southwell last time. Sudski Star won this under a feather weight last year but might find this a much tougher test, especially with INK MASTER in the field. Donald McCain's charge rattled off a hat-trick before finding just one too good at Stratford last time and could quickly return to winning ways.
