Brandon Hill will take a bit of reeling in round here following his excellent effort over the big fences at Aintree but it's hard to ignore the outstanding form credentials of SHANTOU FLYER, who is already challenging favouritism for the Foxhunter at Cheltenham.[Alistair Jones]

Last win was in a Grade 3 2m5f handicap chase at Cheltenham on New Year's Day two years ago, but last year he was twice unlucky not to win again there (including over 3m1f at the Festival); had wind surgery since last seen (pulled up in Grand National) and should be taking high rank in the hunter chase scene.

2-2 in hunter chases, winning small-field affairs last year at Leicester (2m6f, soft) and Towcester (3m, heavy); prolific in points as well but this his stiffest test to date.

Front-runner who ran a mighty race over the big Aintree fences in December, going down only narrowly in the Grand Sefton over 2m5f (soft); very few in here would have been capable of such a bold show in that race.

Former Cheltenham winner who produced his standout piece of form when third in the big hunter chase back there last March; will go well with a repeat of that, but surprising to see him turned over in his recent point.

Very smart chaser on his day for Paul Nicholls, registering RPR of 147 in winning a 3m2f handicap at Wincanton in October 2017; worrying that he's come up short in his two recent points.

Winning his third point when a 20l winner just before Christmas but that form no advertisement for his chances in this company; the Fontwell hunter chase he won was way weaker than this.
