8/1
Hurdle winner in Ireland. Yet to seriously threaten for this yard but was backed only to unseat halfway latest. Interesting to see whether her supporters' return.

3/1
Veteran who showed there's still plenty of life in his legs when winning over C&D 11 days ago. That certainly wasn't a strong race but he's still respected under the penalty.

10/1
Posted career best when making all in 14-runner event at Carlisle in November 2019 but not seen since a below-par run at Musselburgh 11 months ago. Perhaps best watched unless betting vibes strong.

4/1
Point/fair hurdles winner who has been placed on 2 of his 3 starts over fences in recent months. Ought to be competitive now reverting to the smaller obstacles.

Fair up to 1¼m on Flat. Showed an aptitude for hurdling towards the end of 2018 but has an absence of over 2 years to overcome. Tongue tie added. Best watched unless backed.

Sedgefield winner last winter and right back on his game when runner-up at Carlisle in November. Obvious player from the same mark with his yard among the winners.

Fair 9f winner on Flat who has been placed twice in handicap hurdles this winter. Underlined her well-being with an AW jumpers' bumper win last week. On the shortlist.

Lightly-raced maiden hurdler who has made no impact in handicaps this term. Eased another 5 lb but it's not enough to tempt.

At the veteran stage now but he won this race off the same mark last year and took a step back in the right direction when fourth to The Herds Garden over C&D 10 days ago. Not discounted.

Betting

Forecast

The Herds Garden (3/1), Nefyn Point (4/1), Flamboyant Joyaux (4/1), Set In Stone (9/2), Hereia (8/1), Frightened Rabbit (10/1), Snowed In (12/1), Drumochter (16/1), Velkera (66/1)

Verdict

Donald McCain has been firing in the winners since the turn of the year and holds a strong hand here with NEFYN POINT and recent C&D scorer The Herds Garden. The former ran well off this mark when last seen in November and is preferred. Last week's jumpers' bumper winner Set In Stone and Sue Smith's Flamboyant Joyaux are others to consider.
