8/1

Winless over fences so far but has dropped to a very handy mark and improved showing on first start back after wind surgery when runner-up at Uttoxeter (3m, soft) on New Year's Eve. 0-15 after recent poor Exeter run.

Held off Big Time Frank to score over 3m at Exeter in December, though has been easily enough fended off in both runs since.

Ludlow winner in November on good ground over 3m. Handles soft/heavy going, remains high enough in the ratings on form shown since and first-time visor must spark extra.

Sequence of runner-up finishes now stands at six, including behind both Kilcrea Bridge and Kiwi Myth already. Just collared last time, deserves a change of fortune, gets champion jockey for assistance.

8/1

Dual winner last season who was far from disgraced over hurdles at Fakenham last month. Could be on a decent mark back over fences and worth noting in the betting.

Another that is potentially well handicapped in this field but closing in on three years since a win and folded tamely at Hereford this month in similar conditions.

Handicap mark is tumbling but signs that he'll take advantage have been few and far between, looks easily opposed on recent form.

Promising fourth at Ffos Las (3m, good to soft) on chasing introduction under today's rider, entitled to consideration with more to come.

Getting on in years and winless since November 2017. Unseated rider early on latest start at Ffos Las (3m, soft) in November and needs a leap of faith at the moment.

Ought to handle conditions ok but three runs this season are far from inspiring and on that evidence he's got plenty to prove here.

Long-standing maiden under rules, has only had three goes over fences. A remote third at Uttoxeter last month back jumping these obstacles and has plenty to prove on formbook.

Maiden, hasn't threatened in his previous two starts over fences (or indeed as a hurdler) and she is overlooked again based on form.

More than three years have elapsed since she tasted victory, her most recent efforts haven't hinted of an impending change in fortune.

Only fifth behind Big Time Frank (second) at Lingfield (2m7½f, soft) on most recent start, needs a clear improvement on that to be in the mix this afternoon.

Long time between drinks now, with no success since February 2015 at Ffos Las. Struggling of late and case not aided by being 5lb 'wrong' on these terms.

10-race maiden under rules, pulled up last month in 3m2f good ground handicap at Uttoxeter and facing arduous task from out of the weights now.

Betting

Forecast

Big Time Frank (9/4), Kilcrea Bridge (8/1), Leith Hill Legasi (8/1), Pine Warbler (8/1), Heresmynumber (8/1), Midnight Magic (9/1), Kiwi Myth (10/1), Maybe Plenty (12/1), Eaton Miller (16/1), Sutter's Mill (16/1), Blackmill (16/1), Onurbike (20/1), Macca's Stowaway (25/1), Magical Man (33/1), Kilmoganny (33/1), Try It Sometime (40/1), The Last Bridge (50/1)

Verdict

It would be hard to deny Big Time Frank his win after six straight runner-up finishes. He gets the champion jockey for company, which should aid him, but keeps finding ways not to win. Both Kilcrea Bridge and Kiwi Myth are amongst his conquerors in that sequence of runs, with the latter deemed more likely to repeat the trick now. MIDNIGHT MAGIC however made a sound start over fences at Ffos Las recently and David Noonan's mount is respected up 2lb with a chance to build on that now.
