Useful handicap hurdler who landed back-to-back races in that sphere last year before returning over hurdles in October but looked to need the race. Well beaten on his one previous try over fences (tough debut) and may do better this time.
Decisive winner of an Ayr handicap (well-backed) at the Scottish Grand National meeting following up an easy odds-on win here in January. Easy to back on his chasing debut at Wetherby he should have gained from that experience; better to come.
German Flat winner (1m) who then won four races over obstacles in France (2 chases; 2 hurdles). Claimed for €15,606 after winning a race of that ilk at Cholet in September (2m1f, good) and now makes his GB debut; market may be the best guide.
Better form over hurdles than in bumpers he's looked rather luckless in his two chase starts so far. Shaped much better than his finishing position on his chasing debut (bad mistake 2 out) and badly hampered last time; has potential still.

Cool Mix (1/1), Aristo Du Plessis (9/4), Tayzar (4/1), Horst (11/1)
