911-2OR: 153D
11/1

Free going front-runner who has taken well to fences making it three from three at Cheltenham, but best form has been on good ground and this will be a different test under these conditions.

9/2

Beat Highway One O One on chase debut but then beaten by Lalor at Cheltenham. Softer ground today is in his favour does 7L to find with the favourite.

611-2OR: 145D
9/1

Has already bettered his decent hurdles form in three runs over fences and did well to beat Dolos at Carlisle but this demands another step forward and held by Dynamite Dollars from earlier run at Market Rasen.

611-2OR: 151D
8/11

Brilliant round of jumping on chase debut at Cheletenham and that has propelled him to the top of the novice chase tree at this trip. Conditions here far more testing but won on soft at the Aintree festival and clearly an exciting prospect.

711-2OR: 145BFD
9/1

Impressed in winning a pair of novice chases but this a big step up in class and the feeling is that he prefers a sounder surface.

811-2OR: 145
12/1

Smart novice hurdler two seasons back but missed all of last year and entitled to come on for recent chase debut behind a pair of today's opponents. Can do better but stiff task to reverse the form.

Betting

Forecast

Lalor (8/11), Dynamite Dollars (9/2), Ornua (9/1), Highway One O One (9/1), Diakali (11/1), Pingshou (12/1)

Verdict

LALOR was brilliant at his fences on recent chase debut and if in the same form he can repeat the form. Dynamite Dollars can get closer on the softer ground and Pingshou also has plenty of scope to improve.
