25/1
Useful dual-purpose performer who hasn't been seen out on the Flat since winning a Windsor claimer (1m2f) in July 2016. Has progressed over hurdles since and could be returning to the level on a handy mark. Market move would be interesting.

Twice a winner over hurdles but winless from 18 Flat starts, though has slipped to a handy mark on the evidence of two recent third place finishes over 2m on the AW. Likely to be in the mix once again.

Ex-Italian gelding who has found life tough so far in this country, though did finish a runner-up in Lingfield seller last months. Hopes pinned on the longer trip but mark still looks high enough.

Useful over hurdles and is belatedly translating that ability to the Flat, having justified favouritism in successive staying handicaps at Chelmsford and this course. Up a further 7lb but no surprise to see the hat-trick landed.

One-time Andre Fabre inmate for whom he won a race over 1m4f and is now finding his feet for this yard on the evidence of a bloodless victory in a weak Lingfield seller. Much bigger questions asked now.

Looked a useful prospect when notching back-to-back wins in 2015 but missed the entire 2016 and 2017 seasons. Shaped as though retaining ability on his reappearance over 1m4f but took a step backwards at Southwell last time. Longer trip may help.

Twice a Flat winner in his younger days then good form for John Ferguson over hurdles in 2015 before encountering injury problems. Has returned to show little in two AW runs for this yard and is best watched in the short-term.

Dual C&D winner last summer but mark shot up as a result and she began to find things more difficult. Not seen out since an underwhelming effort at Chelmsford in November and may just find a few too good.

10/1
Five-time turf winner, most recently over 2m at Ripon in August, but yet to win a race on the AW from nine attempts. By no means badly-handicapped if putting it all together but needs to improve on his latest effort at Wolverhampton.

Betting

Forecast

Western Way (2/1), Age Of Wisdom (11/4), Ardamir (6/1), Diaktoros (6/1), Fitzwilly (10/1), Golly Miss Molly (20/1), Fool To Cry (25/1), Jalingo (25/1), Fanoulpifer (33/1)

Verdict

Useful hurdler WESTERN WAY has created a good impression in winning successive AW handicaps under Adam Kirby this winter and appeared to have enough up his sleeve when scoring over C&D last time to suggest a 7lb rise may not be enough to prevent the hat-trick. Age of Wisom, Ardamir and Fitzwilly may give the selection most to think about, though a market move for Fool To Cry would be interesting.
