25/1

Belied his advancing years to score three months ago but poor last time. His last two victories came three years apart and a quick return to the winners enclosure may not be imminent.

Back to form with a win over fences last week and reverts to hurdling off a mark 6lb lower than for his last success in this discipline.

711-9OR: 99

Has won handicaps off marks of 84 and 92. Found his revised rating on bad ground against him last time.

Career record of 2-42 with those victories being gained on the level. Mark is falling but apparently not quickly enough.

8/1

Had two quick runs on soft ground at Perth last month, scoring over this trip on the first of them. Remains handily weighted if handling the expected quicker ground.

New trip and better ground inspired a much improved effort last time. Races of the same mark here and one of the leading contenders.

Has proven consistent in staying handicap hurdles, although she remains a maiden after 20 outings and her best form has been on deeper ground.

All three wins have come with plenty of give and current mark is up with events judged on her last two runs.

Winning point-to-pointer, but has mainly struggled under Rules and reverts to hurdles having achieved little over fences this month.

Caused an upset here two weeks ago over fences when making all over 2m1f. Stays this far but he has never been easy to catch right and hard to be confident he will be in the same frame of mind.

Yet to place in ten starts so far and finished well beaten in both starts this month. New trip and better ground need to make a big difference.

Landed a Kilbeggan bumper last summer. Has shown steady improvement over hurdles but not enough to suggest she is potentially well treated this time. Blinkered for first time.

611-3OR: 93D
11/1

Career best under rules last time and point-to-point form would indicate she will do even better at this trip and on good ground. One for the shortlist.

Maiden after 12 starts but placed six times at around 2m. Steps up in trip again after producing a below-par effort when tackling 2m4f last time.

Form has an inconsistent look to it. However, he goes well fresh and this hurdling mark looks attractive given his 14L thrashing of multiple winner The Bay Birch last autumn.

25-race maiden who has been poor recently but gets his ground here. Possible each-way material in a race less competitive than the numbers suggest.

Has disappointed connections with a series of dismal hurdle displays since February. Will need to improve considerably for the longer trip in order to figure.

Best run came on last occasion he got decent ground. Well beaten on stable debut and cheekpieces tried. Best watched over this new trip.

Beaten an aggregate of 142L in three maiden hurdles and appears to be getting progressively worse. Big improvement needed and trying a new trip.

Has shown few signs of progress including both starts in handicaps. Tries 3m for the first time and would make more appeal if coming in for support.

Verdict

KING'S SONG can be another winner for the Gordon Elliot team off an attractive hurdling mark and with conditions in his favour. He goes well fresh and many of his opponents have questions to answer. The biggest threats come from About You, who will be happy with the trip and ground, and Perth scorer Le Braye.
