Poor form over hurdles and quickly switched to fences, but couldn't improve for chasing at Warwick last time and a 5lb drop unlikely to make the difference.

Well-beaten on his last two starts despite attractive form figures. Yet to score over fences and only previous win came in February 2016; plenty to prove.

First start since September/joining this yard. Minor claims on the best of his Irish form but not getting any younger and may need the run after the time off.

Most recent chase win came off a higher mark than this at this course over shorter, but this longer trip shouldn't be an issue and he has to be considered.

Not the most prolific of winners over hurdles but not disgraced on chase debut last time out, and better ground here should be fine for him.

Third of just five at Fontwell last time out and down just 1lb from that 13L defeat. C&D winning form but needs to bounce back to get involved.

Clearly not his running when beaten a long-timer out at 11/10 at this course last time out over hurdles. Back over fences and holds claims if bouncing back.

0-10 under rules and much more needed than when pulling-up here last time out on his first run for a year.

Failed to complete in his last five starts so impossible to fancy from out of the handicap and looking a long way past his best.

Betting

Forecast

King Cool (11/4), Roparta Avenue (11/4), Remember Forever (5/1), Flugzeug (7/1), King Charlie (8/1), Hill Fort (11/1), I Am Sam (12/1), Massinis Adventure (22/1), Charming Lad (33/1)

Verdict

Hill Fort ran okay on chase debut last time out and could easily build on that, while Roporta Avenue hold claims if bouncing back from a disappointing effort last time out. However, preference is for REMEMBER FOREVER, who won here back in April 2017 off a higher mark than this, and though not at that level since, the return to this track may help.
  1. Remember Forever
  2. Hill Fort
  3. Roparta Avenue
