INIESTA has been in really good form of late and followed up his Stratford success with a good third at Huntingdon last time. He should mount another bold bid and is preferred to Royal Beekeeper, who was far from disgraced at Southwell recently and should find this company easier. Stuccodor is on the downgrade but might be able to figure here.

Polo The Mumm ran well over hurdles at Taunton last time and won't be fazed by the switch to fences, while Legal Ok turned in a better effort when second here recently and is another to seriously consider. However, slight preference is for RED SQUARE REVIVAL, who wasn't at his best last time but looked really good when winning easily at Plumpton previously. He should have plenty more to offer and is worth sticking with.

MIDNIGHT JAZZ was very highly tried last year and ran Vroum Vroum Mag very close in Grade Two company at Doncaster back in January. She drops in class for today's reappearance and should be able to concede weight to these inferior rivals, with Maria's Benefit the only one to fear. The latter comes into this chasing the hat-trick following wins at Newton Abbot and Sandown and she is certainly on the upgrade. Late Night Lily rates best of the rest.

Ended last season out of sorts, but that at least left him on a feasible mark, and his mid-field Chepstow return was solid enough. Went the wrong way at Wincanton next time, though.

He has won a hurdle race and three chases from 2m 3f to 2m 7f on ground varying from good to firm to good to soft. Pulled up 3 out when 25-1 at Wincanton over 3m 1f (soft) in a chase won by Present Man last month on his latest outing.

DUELING BANJOS was far from disgraced when running well in a fiercely competitive Cheltenham handicap last month and he remains a progressive young chaser. Another who appears to be on the upgrade is Audacious Plan, winner of his last two starts and only up 5lb for his recent Sedgefield success in the Durham National. Kempton scorer Better Days and Moss On The Mill are others worth considering.
