Useful form on heavy ground including when the impressive winner of a valuable Grade 3 at Haydock over an extended 3m4f in February.This unlikely to be enough of a test and stable are not yet in full swing.

Winner of the Reynoldstown in 2016 and gained his first victory since on New Year's Day when outjumping his rivals at Cheltenham. Beat little that day and cheekpieces removed for return.

2018 Midlands National winner has been well beaten on both starts since and would appreciate much more testing conditions than seem likely.

Conditions more to his liking than some but, although 4-12 over fences, he is still prone to errors and he can ill afford those off his current mark.

11/1

Progressed as a chaser to beat Flintham by a wide margin before finding the weight concession to a useful rival too much last time. Has gone well when fresh in the past and stable in excellent form.

7/2

Made decent transition to fences last term winning two novice chases and was fourth in listed handicap at Cheltenham Festival. Usually needs a run after a break so last month's Chepstow effort will have him ready for this.

Useful front-running chaser that's hard to pass on a going day, beaten under a length in the Rowland Meyrick last Christmas and back to a more suitable trip here. Some concern that his jumping was not up to scratch last time.

Wind surgery and the Cheltenham/Haydock fences offer plausible excuses for his last three efforts. Looked useful at this trip when scoring for the for the first time over fences and no surprise should he bounce back here.

15/2

Looked a fair staying chase prospect in the 2017-17 season. Absent since the 2017 Cheltenham Festival and faces a stiff task against fitter rivals who are more established in this grade.

Unexposed youngster who won well at Chepstow in January and was travelling strongly off 9lb higher mark when falling at 16th fence in Eider Chase. Below par in the Midlands National and having first run since.

Took this 12 months ago off a 7lb higher mark. Lost his way subsequently and recent efforts over hurdles do not suggest he is on the right path.

Warwick specialist whose best efforts have come with cut in the ground and she's needed her seasonal return in the last couple of years.

Betting

Forecast

Barney Dwan (7/2), Sir Mangan (5/1), Back To The Thatch (13/2), Vyta Du Roc (7/1), Kerrow (15/2), Full Irish (8/1), Templehills (9/1), Rolling Dylan (11/1), Yala Enki (20/1), Delusionofgrandeur (22/1), Sparkling River (33/1), Regal Flow (40/1)

Verdict

Some familiar names line up for this but the likes of Yala Enki, Back To The Thatch and Vyta Du Roc will probably need the run. Regal Flow would appreciate more of a stamina test and last year's winner Sir Mangan has been out of form. Full Irish is hard to evaluate but, if excusing his last three runs, enters calculations on his impressive Lingfield success. Rolling Dylan represents an in form stable and is fairly weighted. BARNEY DWAN has a fitness advantage and looked a useful novice last term. He finished a very good fourth at the Cheltenham Festival and the handicapper has given him a chance here.
