Progressive five-year-old who was beaten just a half-length into second in the Grade 1 Tolworth Hurdle at Sandown last time out. Needs more to be competitive on these terms, however, and others are preferred today.
Creditable fourth in major Ascot handicap before close second in Grade 1 novice event.

Wind Op - Second run after wind operation
Useful sort on his day, as he showed when second to Buveur D’Air at Sandown earlier this month. There is nothing of the winner’s ilk in this line-up, but he still needs more to be considered a genuine win contender here.
Second in two Grade 1 novice hurdles last spring but no significant progress this season.

Inconsistent ten-year-old who made a winning return from a 706-day break at Ascot in November, but disappointed back over that same course and distance last time out. Looks below the standard required to win this.
Won good Ascot handicap after long absence in November; not in same form last time.

Smart hurdler/chaser who had subsequent Grade 1 winner Simply Ned behind when scoring at Cheltenham in November. The ground went against him in the Tingle Creek at Sandown afterwards. This looks a good opportunity to return to winning ways.
Grade 1 novice chase winner last season and also Grade 2 C&D hurdle winner in 2016.

Gained the fifteenth win of his career when landing a handicap hurdle at Taunton last time out. Steps back up in grade today, but he has been well held in his last two runs outside of handicap company.
Game front-runner with good strike-rate in handicas; this a tough task, though.
