Carrigkerry and KNIGHT BACHELOR both seem most effective when ridden very positively, so there is a chance they could combine to set this race up for Horseguardsparade. However, the Warren Greatrex-trained gelding has really got his act together on his last couple of outings and is taken to complete a hat-trick.[Chris Wilson]

Took a while to get off the mark over hurdles but enjoyed dominating from the front in Cartmel maiden (2m6f, good) in June and produced another commanding display in Uttoxeter handicap (2m4f, good) last month; carries double penalty back in novice company here but still commands respect.

Former pointer/hunter chaser who made all to finish first past the post in 2m4f handicaps here and at Southwell on first two starts over hurdles in May (subsequently disqualified on first occasion); bounced back from a couple of lesser efforts when close second in first-time cheekpieces in Cartmel novice event (2m6f, good to soft) last month; major player.

Fair Flat-racer; soundly beaten on last month's hurdle debut but displayed significant improvement when second (albeit flattered by proximity to winner) in C&D maiden on Thursday; won't be far away if matching that performance today.

Didn't show anything more than glimmers of promise in four bumpers and faces a tall order on today's hurdle debut.
