11/8
RSA Chase winner in 2020 who proved he remains equally effective over timber last season. Bit disappointing in the Liverpool Hurdle on final outing but has a good record fresh and makes plenty of appeal.

6/1
High-class hurdler who landed the Cleeve Hurdle for a third time at Cheltenham on New Year's Day. Finished with running left when third to Flooring Porter in the Stayers' Hurdle there last time and expected to give another good account.

5/2
Smart hurdler who looked better than ever when breezing to success in the West Yorkshire Hurdle at Wetherby last month. Another bold showing seems likely.

7/1
Unreliable type but returned with a creditable effort behind Proschema in West Yorkshire Hurdle at Wetherby and bids for back-to-back wins in this.

Made a winning start over fences at Chepstow last autumn and generally good efforts in defeat since. Might get outclassed back over hurdles, though.

Forecasts

Champ (11/8), Proschema (5/2), Paisley Park (6/1), Thomas Darby (7/1), Dashel Drasher (7/1), Tea Clipper (17/2)

Verdict

The classy CHAMP wasn't on his game on his final outing last season but he usually goes well fresh, so he's worth chancing to make another successful return. Proschema looked better than ever when scoring at Wetherby on return and hasn't had much racing over 3m, so he's a big danger, while a customary strong late run is expected from Paisley Park.
