Bernard Llewellyn has already matched the number of winners he landed last term and has seen his horses run consistently well of late. SHADOW'S BOY can provide the Welsh handler with winner number seven for the season and a repeat of his second placed effort behind Tempestatefloresco at Ludlow should be good enough to take this contest. Speedalong produced a career best when second on his last start of last season and there could be more to come from the six-year-old of Jeremy Scott, while Drinks Interval has seen the form of his Ludlow victory earlier this autumn franked by the second, Majestic Moll, who scored at Doncaster at the weekend.

PETTICOAT TAILS showed a fair level of form in bumper company last season, winning twice before finishing second in Listed company and third in a Grade 2. The form of the latter has worked out well, with the winner landing a Listed contest over hurdles at Newbury just five days ago. This step up in distance looks likely to suit Warren Greatrex's charge and she can take this en route to better things. Midnight Tune was second in a competitive mares' handicap hurdle over course and distance last time and looks a big threat, while Just A Thought looks best of the remainder.

JENNYS SURPRISE did it well on her return from a year off the track at Uttoxeter last time out and the nine-year-old remains on a handy mark for the all-conquering Fergal O'Brien team. A 6lb rise doesn't look too harsh, and she can account for Daklondike, whose Chepstow fourth when attempting to follow up last time was disappointing. The quick turnaround could have been an excuse for that, but the likes of Wizards Bridge and Gorsky Island could prove bigger threats this time.

CAPELAND has not hit the heights he once promised but his last two starts have proven that he can go well in a race of this nature. Coeur Blimey is another who has been a bit disappointing since his bumper days but he was entitled to have needed his seasonal return. Global Thrill has been in outstanding form in recent months and he has to be given the utmost respect today.

Improved when opening his account under Rules over C&D last month, but seemed beaten fair and square from 9 lb higher mark last time. Probably best watched on first run for new yard.

Finally capitalised on a lower chase mark at Towcester (3m) in February. Twice below that level during the spring, but back on track last month, and makes a bit of appeal.

A winner of a hurdle race at 3m on heavy ground, but that win was over four years ago. Beaten 3/4l by Badger Wood when second of 13 at 25-1 on his chase debut at Taunton over 2m 7f (heavy) in January last year.

Armedandbeautiful will be popular following back-to-back second-placed finishes but soft ground would have to be a worry for him. With that in mind, preference is for LEITH HILL LEGASI, who relishes soft ground and made an encouraging seasonal return at Chepstow last month. Shanann Star does have to shoulder top weight but his sole Rules win to date came under similar conditions here in February.
