The most interesting runner in this field is without doubt DEAD RIGHT, who returns from a 391-day break. When last seen, the son of Alflora accounted for subsequent dual Grade 1-winning hurdler Next Destination in a Punchestown Festival bumper. The lay-off is a concern but he will be hard to beat if retaining his full previous ability. Serosevsky is an obvious threat following his recent Exeter victory but may struggle to give 6lb to the selection, while Commodore Barry looks best of the remaining pair.

Very lightly raced for this yard and he hasn't posed a win threat either start this spring. On the flip side his mark is sliding and this represents a drop in class at least.

Black Sam Bella has to be given the utmost respect given her back-to-back victories earlier in this month, especially as she arrives 8lb well-in. That said, preference is for WAIT FOR ME, who was not disgraced in a valuable race at Haydock 11 days ago and he should relish this good ground. The unbeaten Malton Rose warrants consideration despite the lengthy break, while Call To Order should be monitored in the betting market.

SISTER SIBYL proved that her Cheltenham victory two starts ago was no fluke by finishing second in a competitive class 2 handicap over 2m here late last month. This race is an easier target than both of those contests and the step back up in trip should not be a problem. Dandy Dan displayed plenty of ability in novice hurdles last season and he is an interesting chase debutant, as is the Alan King-trained Tara View.

MYSTIC SKY looked to need the outing in better company than this at Sandown last month and can put that fitness-boosting contest to good use now with his sights lowered. A mark of 123 leaves connections with something to work with, while Maxime Tissier's 5lb claim also helps matters. Level Of Intensity and Eskendash both won class 4 events last time out but deserve to take their chances here, while Mister Universum is respected for the in-form Skelton operation.

This has been the plan for SAN BENEDETO since he finished second in the Grade 1 Celebration Chase at Sandown last month, and Paul Nicholls' seven-year-old can give weight and a beating to this field. That three-and-a-quarter length defeat to Altior certainly rates as impressive form, even if he was slightly flattered by that proximity to the winner, but he can still show his class here. Capitoul did it well for Dr Richard Newland at Huntingdon last time, while Kapstadt represents a team going well at present under both codes.

Running respectably of late without suggesting a return to winning ways is imminent, particularly not at this track considering his sketchy jumping tendencies.

Winner of a hurdle race and four chases from 2m to 3m 2f on ground varying from good to yielding - soft. Beaten 7l by Buster Thomas when second of 6 at 11-1 on his latest outing in a chase at Wincanton over 2m 4f (good to soft) last month.
