Newcomer by top jumps sire Montmartre is a half-brother to six winners on the flat so has a speedy enough pedigree for this and represents top connections so merits respect on debut.
Newcomer by Court Cave out of a point-to-point, hurdle and chase winner who stayed 3m. Very much bred with stamina in mind and likely to find things happening a little quickly here.
€45,000 son of top jumps sire Flemensfirth (sire of Gold Cup winner Imperial Commander) out of an unraced half-sister to two bumper winners. One of the more likely sorts to have no form in any code.
33/1 fourth of 16 beaten 13½L on debut at Newbury 12 month ago. Absence since a concern but third and fourth from that race both won twice since over hurdles so form useful and if he's ready he must have a realistic chance.
Half-sister to a few winners but showed little on Towcester debut in March when tailed off from 3f out on heavy ground and almost pulled-up. Hard to fancy based on that. Also declared Fontwell Friday.
Newcomer by Stowaway is a half-sister to classy bumper and hurdles winner Air Horse One and bumped and hurdles winner One For Rosie who both won on debut. The most appealing newcomer and fully expect her to go close.
