PITON PETE arrives here with an official rating of 125, having made the frame in all four starts over hurdles to date. If the son of Westerner runs to that level this afternoon then he will be hard to beat. Shalakar has displayed plenty of promise on his last two starts and he could prove to be the main threat to the selection. Flynnvincible and Pull Together could both pick up some minor money as well.

SKIPPING ON won well over 2m here last week and he arrives here 7lb well in because he does not have to carry a penalty today, so is taken to follow up. Wood Pigeon is another who arrives here on the back of a victory and a 3lb rise for that success appears to be very lenient on the nine-year-old. The Bay Birch filled second place on his debut for these connections and he can pick up some more prize money this afternoon.

RED INDIAN has continued to progress up the handicap ranks this season without getting his head in front. His third at Cheltenham behind Coole Cody was followed by him finishing in the same position in the Lanzarote behind William Henry at Kempton and that form took a notable boost due to Topofthegame winning at Sandown on Saturday. Alex Ferguson takes 7lb off and it would be disappointing were he not to go well with the yard now back in flying form. Brillare Momento could potentially improve for a wind operation having looked to struggle on softer ground the last twice, while Lady Karina can bounce back having fallen behind Momella at Cheltenham in December.

Tommy Rapper finally got off the mark when beating Book Of Gold in a maiden hurdle at Doncaster last month but he wouldn't be one to completely rely on having been beaten the time before when also an odds-on favourite over this C&D. Preference, therefore, goes to a stable companion of the horse Dan Skelton's gelding beat last time in the shape of SEASTON SPIRIT. The son of Kayf Tara won well on hurdles debut at Fontwell when shaping as though a step up in trip and a stiffer track would both bring about improvement. Coeur Pensif looks best of the remainder having placed behind Pauls Hill and the aforementioned Tommy Rapper here in December.

Yet to score and failed to complete either start over fences thus far. Hard to recommend.

Not scored since 2015, but largely performed with credit this term, doing too much too soon when fourth at Fontwell (26f, heavy) 18 days ago. Not out of things.

She has won three chases from 3m to 3m 2f on soft and heavy ground, but last win was over two years ago. Finished 17l behind Mount Oliver when fourth of 11 at 5-1 on her latest outing in a chase at Fontwell over 3m 2f (heavy) last month.

Largely disappointed since returning in the autumn and failed to build on promise of his Fakenham second when a remote third at same venue last time. Makes limited appeal from 3 lb out of the weights.

A winner of a chase at 2m 5f on soft ground. Third of 6 behind Wood Pigeon beaten a distance at 9-2 on his latest outing in a chase at Fakenham over 2m 5f (heavy) last month.

DONTMINDDBOYS has won two of his last three and this consistent nine-year-old has been found another nice opening here by Robin Dickin. In the first three in 10 of his last 12 starts, the son of Portrait Gallery has gone well off similar marks in the past and could have too much know-how for Big Time Frank, who outran lofty 50-1 odds here to finish third a week ago, and Leith Hill Legasi, who didn't quite stay an extra two furlongs at Fontwell last month.

Took advantage of a drop in the weights at Huntingdon on Boxing Day, but ran a typical moody race when refusing at the fourteenth last time. Best treated with caution.

Winner of seven chases from 3m to 3m 2f on ground varying from good to heavy. Pulled up 4 out when 12-1 here over 3m (soft) in a chase won by How's My Friend earlier this month on his latest outing.

Best effort yet when runner-up at Taunton in December. Bit below that level last time, but each-way claims if bouncing back.

Placed in a hurdle race and a point-to-point from nine starts. Third of 7 behind Innisfree Lad beaten 29l at 7-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race at Uttoxeter over 2m 7f (heavy) in December last year.
