DON’T TOUCH IT won at the Punchestown Festival last season when sporting first time cheekpieces. He has been missing them since, refitted by Jessie Harrington now he is back on a big stage. Handles deep ground fine, looks to have been laid out for this for an owner who has a sparkling record in the contest in recent years. Bouvreuil always goes well at this track, he’ll appreciate the ground making this a proper test at the trip, while Dresden has been in sparkling form on deep ground, still capable from this mark. Born Survivor has a cracking record fresh and makes each way appeal for the fourth place.

J: James Davies T: Henry Oliver
Finally arrested his slide down the weights this season, winning the last twice. Both those came on deep ground, a surface he is at home on. Was seventh in this in 2016 from a three pound higher mark so could get in the mix again but others are more likely winners.
Foxtail Hill
J: Jamie Bargary T: Nigel Twiston-Davies
Twice a winner in eight starts at this track, he was sent off favourite for the Close Brothers at the 2017 Festival. Three pounds higher than when beating Le Prezien at the October meeting here, he’s going to need plenty more to repeat the dose.
J: P. Townend T: W. P. Mullins, Ireland
Has had his jumping problems over fences, struggling badly on deep ground on all starts this season. He has won on deep ground in the past which only furthers the concern that he is nowhere near his peak at present and cannot be supported.
Three Stars
J: J. J. Slevin T: Henry de Bromhead, Ireland
Looked to be coming to hand last time out at the Dublin Racing Festival when runner-up in a similarly competitive contest to this. Deep ground suits him well but he is seventeen months without a win, with a four pound higher mark a tougher ask.
Some Plan
J: Noel Fehily T: Henry de Bromhead, Ireland
Fortuitous winner of a Grade 1 as a novice, he has only shown his best form once since then in six starts. Handles plenty of cut in the ground fine, but is still too far up the handicap for more than a cursory glance.
J: Sam Twiston-Davies T: Paul Nicholls
January 2016 the last time he got his head in front, he has always run well at this track. Placed three times in six visits, he will appreciate this turning into a test of stamina on the ground. Out of form this season but has a place shout.
The Game Changer
J: J. W. Kennedy T: Gordon Elliott, Ireland
Deep ground is fine but has shown just sporadic form since beaten out of sight in this race last year. Has had a wind op since last seen, but others hold more pressing claims with no improvement to come from him.
J: Paddy Brennan T: Paul Henderson
Progressed well since being sent over fences, he’s kept his power dry over hurdles since a win here in the autumn. The rumours at Huntingdon last time is that connections have laid him out for this so needs respect but no easy task from a career high mark.
Bright New Dawn
J: Alain Cawley T: Venetia Williams
Six pounds lower than when seventh in this race last year, he has regressed badly since. Refused to race at Leicester last month, he is impossible to give any hope to in such a deep race.
Born Survivor
J: Bridget Andrews T: Dan Skelton
Handles deep ground fine, though has a habit of throwing in the odd shocker as he did last time. Connections add first time cheekpieces while he has a cracking record fresh. Not seen since December so it would be no shock to see him in the mix late on.
J: Jeremiah McGrath T: Nicky Henderson
In flying form last spring, connections will be hoping the time of year brings him back to form after an insipid campaign thus far. Best form all on a sounder surface so easy enough to pass over once more.
J: Jonjo O'Neill T: Jonjo O'Neill
Fifth year in a row he has rocked up in this contest, runner-up in 2015 his best effort. Twelve years of age now, he has had a wind op since he was last seen. Never one to discount too quickly as he does have a habit of popping up when least expected but this surely is too much for him.
Sizing Platinum
J: Tom O'Brien T: Colin Tizzard
Dotted up on heavy ground at Newton Abbot in October, though that was only a small field. Hit hard by the handicapper for that success, he’s higher than when well beaten in this race last year and when behind Don’t Touch It at Punchestown. Tough ask for him.
J: Tom Scudamore T: David Pipe
Has never really fulfilled his potential, never finding lots off the bridle. New connections have given him a wind op which has the potential to help in that regard. He is another to show his best form when the ground is less testing which has to be a concern.
Gino Trail
J: Jamie Moore T: Kerry Lee
Veteran should give a bold sight out in front. Great jumper with a high cruising speed, he is going to get a few of these in trouble on ground he relishes. He may just struggle to finish them off from this far up the weights however.
Rock The World
J: Robbie Power T: Mrs J. Harrington, Ireland
Winner of this race last season, connections will not have enjoyed seeing the rain falling in the lead up to this meeting. He has the odd bit of form on deep ground but he is an easy enough one to oppose when the mud is flying despite his natural affinity for this place.
Forest Bihan
J: Danny Cook T: Brian Ellison
Grade 2 winner as a novice and only beaten a head in a Grade 1 affair at Aintree. Both of those came on good ground and although he acts on soft, he has struggled this season. Looks too high in the weights here.
North Hill Harvey
J: Harry Skelton T: Dan Skelton
Once more this season, the autumn was the time to catch him, looking a smart novice over fences. Connections fit first time cheekpieces after a lacklustre display at Warwick when last seen. Yet to prove he can carry his form through a season, best left alone until the autumn again.
Le Prezien
J: Barry Geraghty T: Paul Nicholls
A regular in the big handicaps here in the last twelve months, he is four pounds higher than when a well beaten favourite in this contest in 2017. He strikes as a horse stuck between trips, though at least the ground will make this a proper test at the minimum.
J: Harry Cobden T: Paul Nicholls
Novices have traditionally done well in this race down the years, he coped well with soft ground when close behind Gino Trail last time. He has the scope to progress past that rival now, though deeper ground still is a slight question mark against him.
J: Wayne Hutchinson T: Alan King
No surprise that he couldn’t match Altior and Politologue on his return to action, having been off for more than three years. He shaped well there, but deeper ground still is not going to be in his favour, especially in such a competitive race.
Top Gamble
J: Davy Russell T: Kerry Lee
Only beaten six and a half lengths in the Champion Chase at this meeting last year when last partnered by Davy Russell. First time cheekpieces are added to the mix after some lacklustre displays. Well treated on his best but needs a leap of faith to support him.
Don't Touch It
J: Mark Walsh T: Mrs J. Harrington, Ireland
Smart performance winning at the Punchestown Festival last season when fitted with first time cheekpieces. He has not been in the same form since, Jessica Harrington keeping the headgear back for the big occasion. They are refitted here, he goes well on deep ground and looks mapped out for this race.
Garde La Victoire
J: Richard Johnson T: Philip Hobbs
Feast or famine here down the years but does boast three wins in seven visits. Has returned to his last winning handicap mark, with the ground coming in his favour. Chase wins have all come in much smaller fields however.
