Dan Skelton's mare ROKSANA made a very promising hurdle debut when third in a good race at Chepstow last month and makes plenty of appeal here. Naranja struggled to land a significant blow in two Listed novice hurdles towards the end of last season but has her sights lowered today and will be on the premises if able to replicate the form of her third at Lingfield in January. Am I Appropriate and Kalarika both represent respected stables, but their bumper form is not anything to get too excited about.[Chris Wilson]

Placed in Listed bumper a year ago and made very respectable hurdle debut when third at Lingfield (2m, heavy) in January; well beaten in Listed company on final two starts last season but back in calmer waters here.

Second of five in what was probably just an ordinary bumper on debut at Southwell (soft) in June; in good hands and ought to have a future over jumps, but needs to improve to win this.

Outran 33-1 odds when third on stable/hurdle debut at Carlisle (2m1f, soft) last month; probably needs to improve again to win here but shaped as though the longer trip will suit and might collect another minor prize.

Displayed clear promise when reaching the frame in bumpers at Newbury (soft) and Chepstow (good) towards end of last season; finished behind Oscar Star on second occasion, though, and has a lot to find with Roksana on a line through the winner of that race.

Showed some aptitude for hurdling on her two starts in this sphere in March and subsequently won twice back on the Flat (both times over 1m4f on soft ground); each-way claims.

Ahead of Kalarika when second in Chepstow bumper in April but lacked fluency and was shade disappointing when fifth on last month's hurdle debut at Towcester (2m, good to soft); stable's other runner makes more appeal.
