Returned to form at Ludlow two starts back and not disgraced in a Grade 2 at Ayr just 12 days later. May improve upped in trip here and likely to be doing his best work in the finish.

Two-time winner in Novice hurdles but has not replicated that form over fences, not jumping well enough. Certainly of interest back in this sphere though off a workable mark.

Won back-to-back race last winter but has not won since. Shaped much better last time when third of 19 at Sandown though and handicapped has dropped him 1lb.

Won a maiden hurdle in October and ran well in two subsequent starts at Bangor and Taunton. Not at his best last time at Ayr but has the potential for improvement over this new trip.

Not won for nearly two years and has shown very few signs of returning to the winners' enclosure in three starts this winter. Hard to fancy.

Not won since January 2016. Didn't take to fences at all but has returned to form over hurdles and ran well at the Aintree meeting having set a strong gallop, stayed on to finish eighth of 19. Not out of this returned to better ground.

Consistent sort who ran a big race at Cheltenham last time when third of 22. Creeping up the handicap without winning not usually a positive but must have each-way claims here and less risky than some.

His win at Southwell in February came a little out of the blue and failed to back that up when pulled up last time. Has his first win since a wind op and others have stronger claims.

Both of her wins have come at this course and latest was a C&D success in September. Fair effort off an inflated mark at Ascot and handicapper given her 2lb relief after disappointing at Cheltenham in November. Each-way claims back here.

Betting

Forecast

Fidux (11/4), I'm A Game Changer (4/1), Vivas (6/1), Red Tornado (7/1), Cyrius Moriviere (15/2), Rebel Yeats (17/2), Cultivator (12/1), Demon D'Aunou (12/1), Supakalanistic (25/1)

Verdict

Cultivator should run well for the Nicky Henderson team on his return to this sphere but preference is for CYRIUS MORIVIERE who despite a long losing run, has returned to form of late and may prove hard to beat back on better ground. Vivas always runs his race and shouldn't be ruled out for a place.
  1. Cyrius Moriviere
  2. Cultivator
  3. Vivas
