There are plenty of positives for COMMODORE BARRY, who has a progressive profile, remains unbeaten at this trip under rules, scored over C&D last time and again looks likely to get his own way up front. Truckers Lodge has a decent chance at the weights but may struggle to peg back the selection. Paul Nicholls' 7yo is nonetheless the main danger.[Steve Boow]

Progressive front-runner who is 4-5 since fitted with a tongue-tie, rallying well under pressure to win a C&D handicap on good ground most recently; now 3-3 at this trip under rules and could well have even more to offer; should take some pegging back.

Still hasn't been with Paul Nicholls for long; useful handicap form on testing ground at Chepstow (2m7f) last month, scoring easily on first occasion and clear second off revised mark next time; dual good-ground winner for previous yard and has a leading chance on the figures in this field.

Point winner last January and has done well back under rules since, completing a five-timer on the Flat and winning two of his three novice hurdles (walkover on first occasion); this is harder than Kempton (3m, good) last time but can't knock his impressive strike-rate over the last 12 months.

Flat winner for Sir Michael Stoute; successful at this track (2m5f) on second attempt over hurdles but was turned over at 2-9 in C&D event next time, which isn't ideal going into this better race; needs to pull out more in refitted cheekpieces (wore them twice on Flat).
