712-2OR: 117BF
4/1

11-race maiden, but has shown up well in both chase starts, the first of which came over C&D. This is not quite as strong-a-race as he contested at Warwick last time, and he should be thereabouts.

811-12OR: 113D
7/1

Dual staying hurdle winner last spring, and came good at the second time of asking over fences at Wetherby (3m, good to soft) last time. Up 9lb for that, but open to further improvement. Claims.

14/1

Dual soft ground hurdle winner over 2m3f-2m5f last winter. Jumped left on his recent chase debut at Taunton, which should be less of a concern here. Well held there, but on a competitive mark and not written off.

13/2

Won a hunter chase on his rules debut in Ireland, in 2017. Unable to add to that in six starts for this trainer, but went close at Perth in the spring, when 2lb lower. More needed, and probably also wants better ground.

611-11OR: 112D
20/1

Irish point winner who is 0-6 under rules. Well held on chase debut in November, when 4lb higher. However, this looks much more likely to be his trip and he could be capable of making more impact.

711-10OR: 111D
6/1

Has got back on track over fences since the autumn, improving for each run and winning his last two at Fontwell (3m2f, soft) and Uttoxeter (3m). Up 6lb and in a better race today, so will need to continue that upward curve to complete a hat-trick.

Has won over 2m4f on soft over both hurdles and fences. Probably stays 3m, but arguably better over the shorter trip.

1111-6OR: 107D
50/1

Hereford novices' chase win (3m1f, good to soft) in March 2017 remains his peack effort. On a handy mark and had excuses on his reappearance, so could come into this.

1011-6OR: 107D
11/1

Dual chase winner at up to 3m1f (stays further) who goes well when there is some cut in the ground. Has slipped back to his last winning mark, after three hurdles runs since. Could go well.

Still 3lb higher than his most recent success at Wincanton (3m1f, good to soft) last April, and plenty to prove judged on his last three starts.

8/1

Returned to chasing on his third start after wind surgery to win at Exeter (3m, good) in November, when 5lb lower. Held in a better race last time, but that was still an improved effort. Acts on soft. Should go well.

Not devoid of promise in two chases over 2m3f-2m4f so far, although his more recent effort was a bit of a backward step. Step up in trip potentially positive, especially in first-time cheekpieces. Interesting.

50/1

1-17 over fences, having scored at Limerick (2m3f, heavy) in 2017. Well held in all starts since and has stamina to prove, as well as a stiff enough mark to handle on this stable debut. Wears first-time cheekpieces.

1010-13OR: 100D
14/1

Enjoyed a productive 2017-18 campaign, with three wins from 2m6f-3m, on ground from good through to heavy. Beaten over 3L by The Ogle Gogle Man at Uttoxeter last time, and now 6lb better off with him. Not ruled out.

1010-12OR: 99D
25/1

Stays 3m2f and acts on good to soft. Went close from this mark at Ludlow in October. Inconsistent, but if back to that level of form today, he would be thereabouts.

910-8OR: 95
8/1

Sole success was in a Hereford maiden hurdle (3m1f, good) last season. 0-5 over fences, but took a step in the right direction over C&D last time, when nabbing second close home. Same mark here, so not ruled out if he can repeat that effort.

Betting

Forecast

Barbrook Star (4/1), The Ogle Gogle Man (6/1), Royal Tara (13/2), Moving In Style (7/1), Heluvagood (8/1), Definately Vinnie (8/1), Gamain (11/1), Alminar (14/1), Camron De Chaillac (14/1), Dontminddboys (14/1), According To Harry (16/1), Kings Monarch (20/1), Bears Rails (20/1), Abbeygrey (25/1), Church Hall (50/1), Patsio (50/1), Have A Go Hero (50/1)

Verdict

Several with claims here and the suggestion is ALMINAR, who has shown promise in both starts over fences, and may be better for this step up in trip and some new headgear. Heluvagood could provide a serious threat, along with Gamain, The Ogle Gogle Man, Moving In Style and Barbrook Star. Others not written off include Dontminddboys, Abbeygrey, Kings Monarch, Have A Go Hero and Camron De Chaillac, in a wide open event.
