Put a disappointing effort on seasonal debut behind him when finishing runner-up in a valuable 2m5f handicap chase at Leopardstown (good) early last month. Represents a top stable and strong claims under a leading amateur rider.

Promising fourth in a 3m handicap chase at Ascot (good-to-soft) last time out. Races off a mark 11lb higher than for his most recent success however and likely more needed if he is to register a victory in this event.

Improved on previous efforts this season when finishing 13L third to a subsequent winner in a handicap chase over an extended 3m2f here in January. Likely more needed if he is to take this contest however.

Made a winning debut for this stable when successful by a neck in a 3m handicap chase at Ludlow (good) last time out. Open to improvement on just his fourth chase start and market support would be notable with useful amateur booked to ride.

Some decent form last season but has failed to finish on two of his last three starts most recently when unseating over an extended 3m4f at Punchestown (good-to-yielding) last month. Needs to return to form to figure in this event.

12/1

Three time winner over hurdles during 2016/17 season but failed to figure in three starts over fences including when 16L fifth at Ffos Las (2m5f, good-to-soft) in October. Returning from a break and likely capable of better now tackling handicaps.

Failed to finish on four of his last five starts most recently when falling in first time blinkers (absent here) over an extended 3m at Leopardstown (good) in December. Changed yards since but others make more appeal.

Finished runner-up in a handicap chase over an extended 3m1f at Ludlow (good-to-soft) on his penultimate start and ran a fair race when 17L fourth over 3m there subsequently. however this looks a much more competitive contest.

Irish Grand National winner three years ago and registered his only success since when victorious at Kilbeggan (3m1f, good) on stable debut last July. Fair efforts in defeat in valuable handicaps since and may surprise a few better fancied rivals.

Winner of two of his three starts this campaign including by a head over 3m at Exeter (good) in November. Good second on only subsequent outing and is an interesting runner stepping up in distance on his return from a break.

Off the mark at the sixth attempt over fences when winning over 3m at Navan (yielding) in January. Unseated early on when making his handicap debut at Haydock (good) the following month and others have more obvious claims in this event.

Fell on his most recent chase start and returned from a break with a promising 8L third in a 3m handicap hurdle at Punchestown (good-to-yielding) last month. Hails from a top yard and is one to note on his return to fences.

Verdict

ITS ALL GUESSWORK caught the eye when placed over hurdles last time out and he looks capable of making a winning return to fences in this competitive amateur riders event. Livelovelaugh represents a leading stable and ran well when second at Leopardstown last time out and he can finish runner-up ahead of Any Second Now who should appreciate this step up in distance and can complete a clean sweep for Ireland.
