2015 Fred Winter winner QUALANDO (nap) was second in this last year and, now 5lb lower and with the drying ground in his favour, he can return to form with a big run. Kk Lexion goes well fresh and is feared most on this first run since December, on account of his eyecatching third here in October. Diable De Sivola, Verni and Vivas are others with good form in big fields at this track, while the unexposed Lisheen Prince is an intriguing runner back from an absence on his debut for Olly Murphy. Azzerti and Carlos Du Fruitier retain potential, and Brelan D'As could be suited by the return to better ground.[Ben Hutton]

Didn't look straightforward when second over fences at Catterick last month (hung left); however, he's well suited by a big-field scenario, having been second in the Martin Pipe over C&D at the 2017 Festival (good), and this lightly raced 9yo is respected today off a mark just 1lb higher.

Career best required to win today but he was a decent fourth at Kempton (2m5f, soft) latest and there may be more to come from this lightly raced 6yo now back on better ground (sole win on good); cheekpieces added.

This is his first run since Boxing Day 2016, when with Philip Hobbs; however, this very lightly raced 7yo was a good fourth on handicap debut at Kempton (2m5f, good) that day, having won a maiden hurdle the time before (2m4f, good to soft), and his new trainer does really well with recruits from other yards; betting could be informative on stable debut.

0-9 since debut win and he'll need a career best if he's to take a race this competitive; however, this steadily progressive 5yo has enjoyed a consistent campaign and he has run well in a big-field handicap here, which is a plus; conditions fine and could be in the mix.

Not at his best on his last two starts in November/December but he goes well fresh and is 3lb lower than when a good third on his reappearance here (2m5f, good) in October, overhauled after the final flight following a big move to lead two out; likeable claims.

Needs to find a bit extra on his recent form but he's run decent races in defeat on soft going on his last three starts, and it's possible this return to better ground will eke out more as his wins have come on good/good to soft and he ran really well when second of 21 here (2m5f, good) in October.

Soundly beaten in midfield over C&D (soft) at the Festival but he was 3-4 over hurdles prior to that, coming from well behind to land a Newbury handicap (2m4f, heavy) two starts ago; has also won on good and retains potential for his top trainer; not discounted.

Out of form on his last three starts, back over hurdles (from fences) the last twice (soft/heavy); only seven runners when he was second in this last year (good) but he's 5lb lower today and the drying ground may well trigger a return to form; won Fred Winter at 2015 Festival for Paul Nicholls and could figure at big price back from a break.

Pulled up on last two hurdle runs in early 2016 and then absent until finishing fourth in AW jumpers' bumper last month; however, that was a fairly encouraging comeback run and this very lightly raced 8yo is on a good mark given the promise he showed in 2015 for his top yard; watch betting.

Needs to prove he's up to this sort of mark following 18l fifth on handicap debut at Taunton (2m3f, soft) in December, his final run for Christian Williams; however, today's stiffer test is in his favour (has won 2m5f maiden hurdle on good) and no surprise to see a big run on stable debut.

Consecutive wins last May/September (2m5f, good; 2m4f, good to soft) and not disgraced against higher-rated rivals in novice event here (3m, good) when last seen in October; may be more to come for trainer whose horses often run well fresh; first-time tongue-tie joins reapplied cheekpieces.

Hindsight revealed he had pretty much an impossible task at Warwick (2m5f, soft) three weeks ago, when a 20l second to a winner who then went close at Aintree up 15lb; won maiden hurdle on good ground in December and this unexposed 5yo could have a part to play off the same mark as last time.

Won two in a row over fences in winter and drop back to 2m was against him when nevertheless a good second over fences at Ludlow last week; there is a question mark about whether he's as effective over hurdles but he has a lower mark than over fences and he has won in this sphere.

Needs to perform better than he's managed the last twice, but it's still early days for this unexposed 6yo and three starts ago he looked set to have a big say when falling three out on his handicap debut at Doncaster (2m3f, good); capable of a bold show off the same mark.

Not obviously well treated for this handicap debut and first outing since December, but this unexposed 5yo has won two of his five starts, a bumper at Towcester (1m7f, good to firm) and a novice hurdle at Stratford (2m, good) two runs ago, and this step up in trip is a source of optimism.

Has struggled to get competitive on his four starts this season, but back over hurdles (from fences) at the Festival he ran well for a fair way over C&D (soft) before fading, and today's drying ground could be much more suitable given his impressive win on good going in November 2016.

Dropped back in trip in first-time blinkers (retained) he won at Worcester (2m4f, good) when last seen in September; he's in good hands when it comes to finding further improvement but he'll need a clear career best if he's to defy a 7lb rise back from a break in this hotter race.

Plenty more needed than when only seventh at Kempton (2m5f, soft) latest but he's better than that, as the form of his ready win at Huntingdon (2m3f, soft) the time before has since been strongly franked by the second/third; this 9lb higher mark may not be beyond him; effective on good/good to soft.

It's been a while since he's won and this is his first run since November; however, he's now back down to his last winning mark and, having been strong at the finish a few times in 2017 over 2m/2m1f (including here), he's well worth a first crack at a trip this far; drying ground in his favour.

Well handicapped on old chase form and he was a decent second over hurdles on his penultimate run in March 2017; however, this 11yo has been off since last May and he's probably best watched on this return.

Non runner
Good-ground maiden hurdle winner who, after some time off, scored very easily in a six-runner handicap at Plumpton (2m4f, heavy) in February; now 10lb higher he's worth a second look given his dominance that day but he was unable to threaten at Kempton (2m5f, soft) latest, which tempers enthusiasm.
