25/1

Looks even better over hurdles than he does on the Flat and won a Listed race at Limerick last month. Couldn't back that up at Cork and may struggle to concede weight to all.

Won back-to-back races at Bangor and not beaten far in hat-trick bid at Worcester. Well beaten back at that course last month when last seen but he's better than that and can't be ruled out.

Point-to-point winner who won a bumper on debut for this yard. Couldn't cut it at Grade 1 level at the Festivals and fell when favourite on seasonal return but probably not one to write off just yet.

Improved from his bumper run to win a maiden hurdle at Fontwell in good style. Completely unexposed and while this is a big step up in class, his trainer is not the type to tilt at windmills. Champion Jockey takes the ride.

Won here over fences last year and has been running well back over hurdles, landing two novice hurdles before finishing runner-up in a Chepstow Grade 2 last time. Step up in trip will suit and should run well.

Point-to-point winner who took a step forward from his return run when winning a competitive three-runner contest at Wetherby last month. Fascinating contender up in class here.

Bumper winner late last year at Ascot who was then set a couple of stiff tasks in the same sphere; ran with credit on both occasions. 100-1 chance in the Champion bumper he ran a little better than his finishing position; interesting runner.

9/4

Justified favouritism on hurdles debut when winning at Chepstow last month. Turned over when odds on at Ascot last time but clearly capable of better than that and looks a likely contender here.

Improved with racing in point-to-points finishing 1L second on yielding-to-soft ground at Ballinaboola in February. Looks up against it on Rules debut.

Betting

Forecast

Pym (9/4), Double Treasure (10/3), Coolanly (7/2), Darlac (5/1), Kapgarry (16/1), Nestor Park (16/1), Captain Peacock (20/1), Percy Veer (25/1), Tricks And Trails (100/1)

Verdict

KAPGARRY was well on top when getting the better of a useful rival at Wetherby last month and he might be worth taking a chance on with more improvement expected. Nicky Henderson won this last year with a smart one and Pym is expected to improve on his recent Ascot second. Darlac made easy work of a return run at Fontwell and is another worth considering.
