28/1

Off 354 days after falling last October so entitled to have needed his reappearance and given he is better over fences that hurdles race can be taken with a pinch of salt. Yard's runners needed first run back so strip fitter now and respected.

Four-time winner only made the track twice in 2018 and off after falling last time in February. Second off a 1lb higher mark at the end of the 17/18 season so capable if ready on reappearance.

Former French trained chaser won both starts last season taking his overall record to 3-4 over fences. Clearly goes well fresh, enjoys deep ground conditions and could have more to give for last year's winning yard.

9/1

Won twice at Carlisle last season before coming unstuck in the Welsh National. Has to prove he can handle marks in the 130s but should strip fitter for recent run so not ruled out altogether.

5/1

Gained his first win over fences at Carlisle last February building on the promise he had shown on chasing debut. Shade disappointing on return as favourite but could have needed that and still unexposed so highly respected here.

10/3

Gained reward for consistent run of form when landing a 3m handicap at Sandown last February. Fair fourth next time out and only 3lb higher than aforementioned win so should be more to come this season given relative youth.

710-12OR: 129
6/1

Won a 2m4f novices handicap last season before finding 3m plus handicaps a tougher nut to crack. Fair fourth on return at Fakenham and likelihood remains that he can improve in second season over fences.

Off the mark over fences over 2m6½f at Newbury last season before coming up short in a warmer race at Cheltenham. Should come on for recent hurdles race but others still preferred.

Betting

Forecast

Classic Ben (10/3), Commodore (7/2), Arthur's Gift (5/1), Kayf Adventure (11/2), Calipso Collonges (6/1), Looksnowtlikebrian (9/1), Graceful Legend (16/1), I Just Know (28/1)

Verdict

Venetia Williams won this race 12 months ago with the useful Yala Enki and COMMODORE can repeat the feat. The seven-year-old looked one to stay on the right side of when winning both chase starts last season and he appears best fresh so today is probably the best time to catch him. Lightly-raced Arthur's Gift looks likely to still have his best days ahead and although he was underwhelming on return there is every chance he can now come forward to show his best form again. After almost a year off I Just Know was entitled to have needed his last run; he could leave that well behind now back over fences.
