5/1

Still going well when a faller in Cheltenham Grade Three in December, having won a well contested novices' handicap chase there almost a year ago. Has won on both soft and heavy ground and still open to improvement, though yard could be in a bit better form.

7/2

Fourth in last year's JLT Novices' Chase at the Cheltenham Festival and had won a Grade Two novices' contest at Newbury earlier in that campaign. Yet to fire this season and has been given a break since unseating at Newbury in November. Far too early to write him off, though yard relatively quiet so far this year.

Stable in tremendous form, though have had just two chase winners here in five seasons. Trip and ground are fine for this consistent performer and a bold showing is anticipated.

Won a soft ground novices' handicap chase here in November before being found out at Aintree last time. Has it to do at these weights, but jumps well enough and should run his race.

911-0OR: 142
1/1

Debut winner of a novices' hurdle here on this card two seasons ago and after falling when apparently poised to follow-up next time, he failed to figure in a couple of decent contests. The switch to chasing paid immediate dividends when he took advantage of the market leader's fall to register a 19-length win at Ludlow in December and if handling soft ground he is likely to prove tough to beat in receipt of weight from all but one opponent.

1110-11OR:
5/1

Very interesting runner who receives the mares' allowance and has won a bumper, a novices' hurdle and a beginners' chase from her only three starts under rules. Handles but very well and hails from a yard in good form, so with potential on her side, she could take a close hand.

Betting

Forecast

Kilcrea Vale (1/1), Three Musketeers (7/2), King's Odyssey (5/1), Hester Flemen (5/1), Blakemount (20/1), Cusheen Bridge (50/1)

Verdict

A race that holds plenty of interest. KiILCREA VALE took advantage of his chief rival's misfortune to win at Ludlow in December, but he was still in the process of running a big race there and looks an attractive proposition to follow-up at these weights. Hester Flemen could do no more than win her three races so far and coming from a yard in cracking form she could go very close, while Blakemount is consistent and will be no easy beat. King's Odyssey and Three Musketeers are others with plenty of ability, though they just have a little bit to prove at present. 1. Kilcrea Vale 2. Hester Flemen 3. Blakemount
