Very lightly-raced 10-y-o who added to sole success in France at Bangor (19.5f) in spring 2017. Pulled up at Worcester the following month and absence again since an obvious concern.

Successful in two hurdle races at 2m 1f and 2m 4f on good ground. Pulled up 3 out when 16-1 at Worcester over 2m 7f (good to firm) in a hurdle race won by Rainbow Haze in May last year on his latest outing.

Winner of four hurdle races and three chases from 2m 1f to 2m 4f on good and heavy ground. Third of 11 behind Equus Millar beaten 15l at 6-1 on his latest outing in a hurdle race over this course and distance (good) last month.

He has won three hurdle races from 2m 4f to 2m 6f on good and good to soft ground. A winner at 7-1 in a hurdle race at Worcester over 2m 4f (good) on his latest outing earlier this month, beating Winter Spice by 18l. Carries a 7lb penalty today for that success.

KUBLAI was an easy 18-length winner at Worcester last week and he will be extremely hard to beat if arriving here in the same form, despite the 7lb penalty. Kingston has been running well of late and he would be the most likely beneficiary if the selection were to disappoint. Although, the recent Newton Abbot winner Scorpion Star should not be completely discounted.

Bodes Well got off the mark over hurdles at Fontwell recently and another good run can be expected from him, although he is vulnerable under a 7lb penalty. With that in mind, the preference is for BRANDY JAMES, who has made the frame in both previous starts over obstacles and he is favoured at these weights. Idilico won on the Flat in France and is very interesting on his debut for Ian Williams.

DIEG MAN made a winning debut over fences at Cartmel in August and that effort suggests that a mark of 133 may underestimate this five-year-old. Forth Bridge is a consistent sort and it would be no surprise to see him in the mix once again. The shortlist for this competitive contest is completed by Another Stowaway, Ballyarthur and Just A Sting.
