7/1
Still a maiden, and tried in cheekpieces when fifteenth of 16 in handicap hurdle at Chepstow (19.4f) 119 days ago. Makes chase debut on first run since leaving Harry Fry with lots to prove.

Not disgraced after 3 months off when fourth of 9 in handicap chase over C&D on debut over fences 22 days ago. Tongue strap back on now and no forlorn hope in bid for an opening win.

Fair bumper winner who arrives on back of creditable fourth of 9 in handicap chase (5/1) at Fontwell (19.5f, good to firm) 43 days ago. Merits consideration.

17/2, respectable sixth of 11 in handicap chase at Stratford (17f, good) 37 days ago. Needs a couple of these to falter if he's to gain a breakthrough success here.

Had wind op and in process of running well when hampered and fell 4 out in handicap chase over C&D 22 days ago. Still low mileage, so he needs considering.

33/1, first run since leaving Nigel Twiston-Davies when good third of 10 in handicap chase at Market Rasen (17.2f, good) on debut over fences 18 days ago. May do better still, so well in the mix.

Fairly useful bumper winner who posted good fourth of 14 in handicap hurdle over C&D 22 days ago. Much respected on his chase debut.

11/4
Unreliable individual but in a rich vein of form at present, scoring at Warwick before third of 8 in handicap chase (11/4) over C&D 22 days ago. Others remain more persuasive though.

Had breathing op before poor eighth of 16 in handicap chase at Uttoxeter (24f, good) 8 days ago. Blinkered for 1st time now and hard to warm to.

Yet to register a victory, but he's knocking on the door, finishing well after bad error 3 out when third of 14 in handicap chase at Stratford (19.4f, good) 11 days ago. Has to be taken seriously.

5/1, ridden too aggressively when sixth of 9 in handicap chase at Huntingdon (19.9f, good) 65 days ago. Remains winless though, so others appeal more.

Remains a maiden after 27 runs, but he posted good second of 9 in handicap chase at Fontwell (19.5f, good to firm) 43 days ago when left poorly placed. Enters calculations.

It's now 28 runs since his last win in 2017. 50/1, pulled up in handicap chase at Stratford (17f, good) 11 days ago so easily passed over.

On a long losing run, and below form eighth of 13 to Write It Down in handicap chase at Warwick (20f, good to soft) 57 days ago. Hard to enthuse over from 7 lb out of the handicap.

Forecasts

Write It Down (11/4), Train Hill (5/1), Freddie Darling (7/1), Hold Me Tight (8/1), Rostello (8/1), Ardbruce (10/1), Rintulla (11/1), Le Pogues Storm (11/1), Royal Chant (12/1), Catlow (14/1), Conceal (18/1), Yaazaain (28/1), Vouvray (33/1), West Class (50/1), Dun Bay Creek (125/1), Canny Tom (125/1)

Verdict

A case can be made for a few of these but the most persuasive one is for ARDBRUCE who came home an unlucky third at Stratford last time and now looks ready to gain a breakthrough victory here off the same mark. Royal Chant showed the benefit of a wind op when posting a good effort over C&D last month and is feared most, with Yaazaain another worth considering in a very open handicap.
