Chieftain's Choice seemed to respond well to first-time blinkers when third at Market Rasen recently and remains dangerously well handicapped on some of last year's exploits, but it's not easy to predict whether his revival will gather any momentum. Preference is for SALTO CHISCO, who was a disappointing favourite when reverting to hurdles on fast ground three weeks ago but was in good form over fences beforehand and can be given another chance. Cillian's Well will become more interesting if the ground dries out, as will Miss Spent if strong in the betting.[Chris Wilson]

Some way below best 2017 form this year but took big step back in right direction when strong-finishing third in first-time blinkers at Market Rasen (2m2f, good) recently, and remains very well handicapped.

Dual winner on good to firm last summer, including over C&D; any lingering juice in the ground may reduce his chance, but his recent reappearance run was encouraging and a 3lb drop in the weights helps.

Runner-up in two 2m1f chases this summer; disappointing favourite when well-held third back over hurdles three weeks ago but might have found the good to firm ground too quick that day and remains on a workable mark in this sphere.
