Mr Mix will be hard to beat if he bounces back from last month's subdued performance at Wincanton but he has to concede 10lb to GAYEBURY, who showed some very useful form over hurdles last season. Evan Williams' 7yo ought to have got more competitive in a couple of valuable events last month and has some questions to answer on today's chase debut, but he could still have a bright future. Resolution Bay has finished second in both his chases and is expected to be suited by today's step up in trip, but he'll probably need to travel and jump more fluently here.[Chris Wilson]

Developed into very useful novice hurdler last season, and latest of his three wins (2m4f-3m) was gained in a Listed event; pulled up when reappearing in Wetherby Grade 2 last month and also struggled in valuable Haydock handicap just 11 days ago, but is in calmer waters for today's chase debut and the switch to fences might help him get back on track.

Runner-up in Class 3 handicaps at Plumpton (2m3f, good to soft) and Taunton (2m5f, good) since switched to fences this autumn, despite not really travelling or jumping well on either occasion; ought to be suited by today's longer trip; no surprise if he's strong in the closing stages again.

Dual point winner who beat Gayebury to score over hurdles at Hereford (2m3f, heavy) in February; has generally been disappointing since then, though, and is not favoured by the weights on today's chase debut.

Flopped badly when among the market leaders for Badger Ales Trophy at Wincanton last month but clearly wasn't himself that day; won lesser Wincanton handicap (3m2f, good) in October, his second chase success, and will be a tough nut to crack if back on song here.
