Breakfast and Captain Kissinger have to be given the utmost respect given their previous wining form over hurdles but the penalties they carry could leave them vulnerable. With that in mind, the preference is for KING D'ARGENT, who failed to win on the Flat but he performed really well in some competitive maidens and earned a rating of 75. Seaborough won over an extended mile on the level and is another to consider.

LOUGH DERG SPIRIT ran well in defeat in some high-class handicap hurdles last season and this former winning point-to-pointer appears to be the one to beat on his chase bow. El Terremoto, who has experience over fences, could be a threat to the selection but his fall last time out and 6lb penalty are concerns. Cool Mix was an impressive winner when last seen over hurdles and he could make his mark over fences.

I Just Know is an above-average staying chaser (was sent off at 14-1 for the Grand National last time out) and he has to be given the utmost respect on his return in this sphere. That said, he may find this trip to be too sharp and preference is for KAPGARRY, who made an encouraging debut over hurdles when filling second place at Perth last month. Leodis has won on the Flat over 1m6f and is also noted.

Useful at his best, including going down narrowly on reappearance last year. Not one more maximum trust but capable of getting involved off this mark if on a going day.

Ballyandy arrives on a retrieval mission having gone backwards from his novice chase victory at Perth in September last year. He could prove to be a handicap snip on old form, but his jumping will need to improve and preference is for WILLIE BOY. The son of Tikkanen makes his debut for the Charlie Longsdon yard and has proven himself fresh in the past when winning impressively at Newbury last November. Katachenko and Acdc both have solid credentials.

NOTNOW SEAMUS went up 12lb for an impressive display at Uttoxeter last month where he routed the opposition by a staggering 18 lengths. Dan Skelton's gelding steps up in trip, which should prove no issue, and another bold showing looks assured. Monbeg Theatre improved considerably on a sounder surface at the end of last season, winning two big handicaps at Cheltenham and Haydock, while Dubai Angel could have more to offer over timber.

INK MASTER bumped into a well-handicapped rival in Cubomania at Kelso 28 days ago, when finishing runner-up, and, despite a 3lb higher mark, he looks open to further progression for Donald McCain. Oak Vintage couldn't have won any easier at Sedgefield at the beginning of the month, doing so by 19 lengths, and is respected despite an 11lb rise in the handicap, while Theflyingportrait is another to keep an eye on.
