THE RUSSIAN DOYEN was thrown in at the deep end when finishing last behind Summerville Boy in the Tolworth at Sandown but he is clearly a lot better than that form showed and he arrives here with his yard operating in much better form. He has to defy a 6lb penalty due to his Exeter success but looks capable of doing so. Esprit De Somoza picked up the pieces in the Chatteris Fen at Huntingdon when getting the better of Gumball but needs to prove that effort wasn't a fluke, while Sea Of Mystery ran to a fair level on the Flat as a three-year-old and looks a decent recruit to hurdling for Dan Skelton.

CHILLI FILLI appreciated the step back up in trip when landing the spoils at Ludlow on her latest start just before Christmas and, despite dropping back down a couple of furlongs, she can double up under a penalty for the Henry Daly team. Big Robin was a faller on her hurdles debut at Ludlow last March but is capable of better and has had a wind operation since that effort, while Longhousesignora was fourth on her Rules debut at Uttoxeter and can improve from that effort.

SPEEDALONG took a big step forward from his chasing debut at Huntingdon when winning at Wincanton last month where he got the better of Behind Time. That form was given a boost with Harry Fry's gelding running well at Ffos Las on Sunday and he looks open to further improvement on his third start over the larger obstacles. Muffins For Tea should appreciate the return to handicap company having run below par behind Report To Base at Hereford last month, while The Kings Writ has been in consistent form and will appreciate the drop down a couple of furlongs.

Looked really promising over hurdles in 2016, winning first 3 starts, but has shaped like one with problems more recently over fences. Cheekpieces on returned to timber.

She has won three hurdle races and a point-to-point from 2m to 3m on good and good to soft ground. Well beaten at 10-3 behind Dream Bolt when fourth of 6 on her latest outing in a chase here over 2m 2f (soft) in December last year.

Useful bumper performer who quickly reached that level over hurdles in 2015. Frustratingly failed to win on the level for David Barron in 2017 but more like it when placed last twice in this sphere.

He has won three hurdle races and a NH flat race from 1m 6f to 2m 1f on ground varying from good to soft, but last win was over two years ago. Beaten 3/4l by Captain Cattistock when second of 5 at 8-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Wincanton over 2m 4f (heavy).

Improved at a rate of knots in handicaps this term, completing quick-fire hat-trick over C&D in December. Better form when placed twice since from much higher marks and he's clearly thriving.

He has won three hurdle races from 2m to 2m 2f on ground varying from good to soft to heavy. Third of 11 behind Remiluc beaten 2 3/4l at 10-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Cheltenham over 2m 1f (heavy) last month. Has won 3 times this season.

Plenty of promise in bumpers and made it second time lucky over hurdles at Warwick (2m) in May. Failed to progress as expected since, but in top hands and back in trip for handicap bow (tongue tied).

A winner of a hurdle race at 2m on good ground. Third of 11 behind Classic Ben beaten 8l at 5-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Huntingdon over 2m 4f (good to soft) in December last year.

Paul Nicholls has won this race twice in the last four years with claiming riders and it is noteworthy to see Alexander Thorne on COILLTE LASS here for the master handler. The seven-year-old has been off the boil this season, though she did run respectably in Grade 2 company twice last season and has first-time cheekpieces today now dropped in trip. Unison ran well in graded company behind The New One last month before winning over course and distance earlier this month, while Our Merlin has been running creditably all winter and deserves respect.
