Dual Grade 2 winning hurdler but he failed to score last season and reverts to this sphere having been pulled up over fences at Hereford 11 days ago. Has plenty to prove.

Smart hurdler at his best but he's posted just respectable efforts after 12 months off in handicaps at Newbury and Hereford this winter. Veteran needs to step forward despite falling in the weights.

Very smart hurdler for Nicky Henderson who landed this contest in 2018. Made a winning start for current yard over fences at Hereford last winter but well held in 3 hurdles since. Others appeal more.

Ready winner over C&D last Christmas but he offered little on his return when pulled up in 20f Newbury handicap. Yard have great record in this contest however, so no surprise if he bounced back.

Verdict

Plenty are in with a shout. UP FOR PAROL was well on top at the finish when scoring at Haydock and, with this longer trip sure to suit, this likeable son of Flemensfirth is worth supporting. Nicky Henderson has a great record in this event so his C&D scorer Marie's Rock is feared most, although hat-trick seeking trio Green Book, Earth Lord and On My Command all figure high on the shortlist too.
