There might still be more improvement to come from Flying Verse, who has won twice at Southwell this season, but he's raised in class today and the vote goes to GUERRILLA TACTICS (nap), who won his latest hurdle start in the autumn and is well handicapped on some good efforts over fences since the spring.[Chris Wilson]

In good form over fences this spring/summer, most recently when close/clear second at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good); looks very interesting back over hurdles off 1lb lower mark and in first-time cheekpieces.

Off mark with wide-margin success at Southwell (3m, good) in May and bounced back from lesser effort when doubling tally in first-time tongue-tie there last month; up in grade today but could still have more to offer.

Seems versatile regarding the ground but has developed tendency to race lazily over fences and was grossly flattered by proximity to eased-down winner when plodding into second on latest outing; now reverts to hurdling for first time since November 2016 and needs to show a bit more enthusiasm.

Won small-field hurdle at Newton Abbot (3m2f, good to soft) in September and also on target in Wincanton chase (3m1f, heavy) on latest outing in February; drying ground not ideal after break and current mark quite tough.

Mercurial character; capitalised on some help from the handicapper when winning at Cartmel (3m1f, good to firm) in July but was quickly back in the doldrums when pulled up there later that month; remains on a workable mark but chance depends on what sort of mood he's in.

Much better known as a chaser and has very poor strike-rate in recent years; has posted some respectable efforts this season but faces a tough assignment from 11lb out of the weights today.
