22/1
Smart chaser who notched his third win in this sphere a match race at Chepstow last month. Pulled up in Rising Star Novices' Chase at Wincanton last time and lacks the potential of some of his opposition here.

13/2
Smart hurdler who won competitive Punchestown handicap in April. Not really a chasing type on pedigree, though, and didn't get beyond the first at Exeter on debut last week. Certianly has the talent to figure if making a better fist of it this.

2/7
Challow Hurdle winner last season who quickly made up for disappointing efforts at the spring festivals with a seriously impressive performance on chase debut at Warwick earlier this month. Should take high rank amongst UK novices this term and looks the one to beat.

Useful bumper performer reached a similar level in 3 starts over hurdles to date, in the process of running well when falling in a Huntingdon listed hurdle when last seen. Still, improvement required to make winning chase debut in this company.

Forecasts

Stage Star (2/7), Beauport (3/1), Camprond (13/2), Wonderwall (15/2), Sebastopol (22/1)

Verdict

STAGE STAR make a most striking start to his chasing career at Warwick earlier this month and is fancied to get the better of another most promising sort in the shape of Beauport, with Paul Nicholls' representative receiving 5 lb from his Nigel Twiston-Davies-trained rival. Camprond made an inauspicious start to chasing last time but isn't written off on his hurdles form.
