Arrives here in good heart; third in a Listed race at Kempton before winning in good style at Sandown latest. Up 9lb but still on the upgrade and his consistency makes him a reliable option. Worth considering.

Held in a couple of graded races of late and has a bit to find with Lord Napier on the Ascot form. Needs a lot to go his way.

Yard won this in 2016 and have secured the champion jockey for this attempt. However, this gelding has never won from a mark this high and looks weighted to the limit.

Plenty of ability but has been a tad inconsistent lately. Decent claims on the form of his penultimate start but not so good latest and his losing sequence is starting to mount up now.

Decent form in France but not seen out for a while and plenty to prove on UK/handicap debut.

Won a modest race at Hereford in December but held from a 7lb higher mark latest. Plenty to prove in a tougher race.

Won a maiden at Bangor a couple of seasons ago but not made much progress since. Had a wind operation since he was last seen but still a lot to find.

Winner from a mark of 129 on good ground at Market Rasen in the summer but was poor latest and needs to up his game considerably. Stiff test ahead.

The form of his novice win at Taunton took a massive boost when the runner up came out and won a Grade 2 at Kempton. Yard won this last year and have a highly interesting handicap debutante on their hands here. Shortlisted.

Another improving type who has bags of scope for improvement. Thereabouts if taking another step forward.

Won over fences last November but form over hurdles has been below par lately. Hard to recommend on that evidence.

Winner of a couple of Listed bumpers before making good progress since switching to hurdles. More to come and not too harshly treated for his handicap debut after winning last time out. Player.

Posted two decent efforts over hurdles since returning from wind surgery - latest effort being his best yet. Drops in trip but should be thereabouts if he doesn't find things happening too quickly.

Good effort when third in a decent race at Newbury latest; previously won a class 3 at Sandown in good style. Suited by the return to this trip and holds solid place claims here.

Third behind Stayer's Hurdle winner Paisley Park at Aintree last October is his stand out piece of form, held his form well since and worth bearing in mind with conditions to suit. Drops in trip here, so the betting can guide on that score.

Shown a good level of consistency and won well latest. Raised just 4lb but is up in class and more to do at this level.

Won a novice hurdle at Ffos Las but well held on handicap debut latest. Plenty to find on face value. Jockey bookings suggest the yard's main hope for this is Buckhorn Timothy.

Ran well in a mares only race at Cheltenham when last seen but has a long absence to overcome and plenty to take on trust. Potentially still well handicapped though.

Betting

Forecast

Acey Milan (4/1), Bold Plan (11/2), Magoo (11/2), Hill Sixteen (7/1), Lord Napier (7/1), Dr Sanderson (15/2), Shannon Bridge (10/1), Duarigle (12/1), Forecast (14/1), Theo's Charm (14/1), Poker Play (16/1), Buckhorn Timothy (20/1), Jolly's Cracked It (20/1), Air Horse One (20/1), Sully D'Oc Aa (20/1), River Arrow (25/1), Coeur Blimey (25/1), Lamanver Pippin (33/1), Stowaway Magic (50/1), Wynford (50/1)

Verdict

Plenty of these have a bright future ahead and the likes of Magoo, Acey Milan, and Dr Sanderson all have plenty of scope for the future. As does Bold Plan, whose latest start is working out well. However, LORD NAPIER is also a horse on a roll at the moment and he can make this a stern test for most. Theo's Charm is back on a workable mark and is another to bear in mind for a place in the frame.
