Has sprouted wings since upped in trip, completing the hat-trick with minimum fuss at Huntingdon (25f, good) recently. This is a stiffer assignment under a penalty, but he's clearly on a roll.

Likeable front-runner who scored on debut for new yard at Fontwell. Went down all guns blazing when second to a progressive type at Ascot (21.6f, good to soft) recently and another bold show likely.

Has improved this season, placed in handicaps at Uttoxeter and Ffos Las either side of his breakthrough success at Worcester (23f, soft). Possibilities if responding well to first-time cheekpieces.

Well held in a bumper/novice hurdles and handicap debut display at Huntingdon left much to be desired.

Modest hurdler who took advantage of handy mark when landing a 19f selling handicap here in February. Safely held in 4 subsequent starts, though, and yet to fully convince over this sort of trip.

Improved when fourth of 14 on handicap bow at Wetherby on final start of last season. Failed to make an impact on return at Ffos Las (23.9f, good to soft), but it's still early days for this 6-y-o.

Equipped with a first-time tongue strap (retained here), he produced his best effort yet over hurdles when fifth of 12 in a Huntingdon handicap (25f, good to soft) last month. Place possibilities.

Looks decidedly modest judged on what he's shown, both between the flags and under Rules, and it's easy enough to look elsewhere.

Bagged 25f Fontwell handicap in May and ran has performed with credit both starts this season, latterly third off this mark at Plumpton. Still, he looks vulnerable from a win point of view.

Has shaped with no promise in a bumper and 3 starts over hurdles to date. Tongue strap enlisted for this handicap debut and she needs to take a big step forward.

Winless since 2017 and while he's been given a serious chance by the handicapper, it's hard to make a compelling case for this 11-y-o on the back of an inauspicious reappearance at Exeter.

Decent NH pedigree, but hasn't shown much in a handful of novice hurdles and needs to raise his game considerably now pitched into a handicap with a tongue strap added.

Forecasts

Imphal (2/1), Thirtyfourstitches (9/4), Manintheshadows (5/1), Malinas Island (11/2), King Cool (12/1), Freethinker (14/1), Timely Gift (14/1), Mickyh (25/1), Mr Fitzroy (25/1), Soarlikeaneagle (28/1), Auenwirbel (40/1), Sense Of Adventure (40/1), Castcarrie (66/1), Benny Flies High (80/1), Givehimhisdew (200/1)

Verdict

IMPHAL hasn't looked back since moving up in trip and the manner of his recent Huntingdon success would suggest that the four-timer beckons here, for all that he has more on his plate under a penalty in this tougher race. Thirtyfourstitches is 4 lb 'well-in' following his solid effort at Ascot last week and he is clear next best ahead of Manintheshadows and Freethinker.
