Four-time hurdle winner last season who enhanced excellent strike rate over fences when taking 3-runner Grade 2 at Doncaster (3m) last month. Big player again.

Bumper/maiden hurdle winner. Took well to chasing with close second over 2m here in May but hasn't come close to reproducing that in his 2 runs since. Upped further in trip now.

9/1
Progressive hurdler who made successful chase debut at Hexham (3m) in November. Similar form when last of 2 finishers at Kelso (23.4f) since but this understandably tougher.

10/3
Three-time hurdle winner who has taken well to chasing, relishing testing conditions when scoring in good style at Haydock (22f) last month. Step up to 3m may unlock further improvement.

Progressed well in novice hurdles in 2019/20. Shaped encouragingly on chase bow at Cheltenham on last season's return but ran as if amiss next time and has since left Nigel Twiston-Davies.

Forecasts

Verdict

THREEUNDERTHRUFIVE boasts a very impressive strike rate, making it 3 wins from 4 starts over fences when landing a Doncaster Grade 2 last month. He can continue the good work, with Mint Condition next best on the back of his latest Haydock effort. Mossy Fen, who is still low-mileage, is also worth noting on debut for Christian Williams.
