Even under a penalty, useful staying chaser VINNIE LEWIS is very much the one to beat having won a novice hurdle at Southwell last time out. Definite Wisdom could be the one for the forecast as this 3m point runner-up should be suited by today's big step up in trip.[Ben Hutton]

Useful staying chaser last season, winning on soft/heavy; two novice hurdles this autumn and he made all in the second one at Southwell (3m, good); this looks a good opportunity for him to defy a penalty.

Off mark at 29th attempt, in Downpatrick handicap hurdle (2m6f, soft) last month; beaten soundly enough the next twice but is now back on slow ground for the first time since her win; place claims, probably at best.

Won two in a row on the Flat at Pontefract (2m2f, good to soft) last month; Flat form suggests he should have potential over today's trip on slow ground, and it's too soon to write him off over hurdles, but he does something to prove in this code having been tailed off at Kelso 19 days ago.

Sole win (from 20 rules starts) came over fences here (2m2f, heavy) in February 2017; may have needed recent reappearance run here; at the weights he comes out just about second best behind Vinnie Lewis, but has quite a bit to find with that rival and his stamina for this trip isn't guaranteed.

No impact on first two rules runs, in Hexham novice hurdles (2m, soft/good) this autumn; however, it was a better run last time, when staying on, and this 3m point runner-up (yielding to soft) could appreciate today's big step up in trip; each-way possibilities.

Runner-up over 3m on sole Irish maiden point start and he might be suited by this step up in trip; however, he's been well beaten on his first three rules outings (2m-2m4f) and significant improvement is required.
