After riding a double at Wetherby on Saturday, AP McCoy heads to Carlisle where he has six booked rides.
Burdened with top-weight for his handicap debut but his reappearance second was as well as he has run in his short career and he's entitled to come on for both the outing and the experience. 2nd
Developed into a very smart staying hurdler last season but this trip should provide an adequate test of stamina for his chase bow. He faces four decidedly useful rivals, however, and this is no penalty kick. 3rd
Carries a penalty for his debut win over hurdles which won't make life easy but he beat a useful rival that day and his form in bumpers was above average so he could prove up to the task. 1st
Talented second-season chaser whose principal early season target is the Paddy Power Chase at Cheltenham. Likely to improve for this reappearance but is well treated at the weights in this heat and has leading claims.2nd
Comes into this race in good form and remains on a competitive mark but his losing run stretches back 14 starts to 2011 so he's going to have to pull a little more out of the hat. Forecast price: 9/2
Has an excellent strike-rate when teaming up with this trainer and this three year old's a likely-looking type on paper. The market may well be revealing with regard to his chances. Forecast price: 6/4
