C&D Winner - Won before on this course at this distance
Gained back to back wins in handicap hurdles earlier this season, and he has run well in defeat over fences the last twice. Arrives here seven pounds above his last winning mark, but these conditions should suit.
Won his novice over C&D; fair claims as long as there isn't much rain and they go a pace

Cold Recent Form Trainer - 0 wins from 12 in the last 14 days (0%)
Occupied the runner-up berth in back to back handicap hurdles at Sandown earlier this campaign, but he has been well held at Cheltenham and Ascot respectively the last twice. Today’s ease in grade will suit, but others arrive here with less to prove.
Winner off 6lb lower on good last spring; has to bounce back from a couple of poor efforts

Cold Recent Form Jockey - 1 wins from 25 in the last 14 days (4%)
Bounced back from some below-par performances to finish third in a handicap hurdle at Newbury last month. Steps back up in grade today, however, which demands more, and this trip may be on the sharp side for him now.
Better on his return from a break early last month; will want a proper test down in trip

Hot Recent Form Jockey - 12 wins from 37 in the last 14 days (32%)
Winner of two of his last three starts; appreciated the addition of a tongue tie and cheekpieces when scoring at Uttoxeter last time out. That headgear combination is retained today, and a five pounds rise for his latest success looks fair; respected.
Justified favouritism in first-time tongue tie/cheekpieces last month; more needed up 5lb

Gained three wins for Shark Hanlon; the latest success coming in a handicap on the level at Galway. Has joined Dr Richard Newland’s yard since last seen, and this yard often does well with new recruits. One to monitor closely in the betting.
New trainer often done the job with this type; market support should be taken seriously

Dual course and distance winner, but his last three successes have all come in 2m3f handicap hurdles at Taunton. Arrives here still four pounds above his last winning mark, and he was held in what looked a weaker contest at Wincanton on Sunday.
Continued to run consistently since a win late last year, despite his age; each-way shout

T: Jeremy Scott
Struggled in his first two starts in handicaps, but he put up a much-improved performance to finish third at Sandown last time out. Shaped as though the step back up to this trip would suit there, and his yard is currently enjoying a fine run of form.
Won't mind either the longer trip or return to better ground; high on the shortlist

Failed to win in thirteen starts for Tom George, but he came close to making a successful debut for these connections when second at Southwell last week. That was his first start for 180-days, so he is entitled to strip fitter this afternoon; claims.
This is stronger and the second quick run after a break will concern some, but claims

Verdict

Support for Magna Cartor would give things a different slant but Jeremy Scott has been among the winners and BANG ON gets the nod.
