A lot of these could be given a very positive mention. CALIPSO COLLONGES defying his latest, hefty rise in the weights to complete a five-timer is perhaps the most likely outcome but Steely Addition looked good in the autumn and Buckle Street has mostly been running well. Improvement from King Of Realms, Linenhall and Lithic over this trip could also play a part, while Crystal Lad is on a good mark.[Richard Austen]

Second at Ascot and Taunton on his first two starts over hurdles before making all in maiden at Doncaster, all over 2m3f on softer than good; will be suited by further than that and he's a promising handicap debutant.

Transformed and unbeaten with equipment enlisted for new connections with wins on soft or heavy at Uttoxeter (2m4f), Fakenham (2m7f), Market Rasen (2m2f) and Haydock (2m7f); last two starts under Fergus Gregory and he scored easily by 12l last time; handicapper has stuck him up another 17lb but it's hard to say just how good he is; shortlisted.

No win since October 2016; has often run with credit since, including when seventh in the Pertemps Final here last time, and is edging down the weights but others are now more persuasive for the win.

Does not score highly for consistency but won at Huntingdon three starts back and fourth off this mark in the Pertemps Final here on latest, so needs some respect; would have much more to prove if it's good ground.

Lightly raced and joined this trainer this term; big progress when upped to 2m5f then 2m7f for wins at Wincanton (good) and Chepstow (soft) in the autumn; the latter was by 10l in fine style and he's gone up another 14lb, absent since, but stable form is the chief worry.

Whipped round and unseated at the start on penultimate appearance; did very well otherwise over about 3m this winter with third at this track and wins at Catterick and Doncaster, all under Harry Stock; going up another 6lb looks a bit steep but he's going the right way.

Some very classy form over fences, which makes this look a good mark; has mostly disappointed in that sphere this season, latest run in an AW bumper wasn't great either and stamina not proven, but jumping style has often looked as if it would prove better suited to hurdling than chasing.

Not disgraced in his sole handicap (2m5f here in November) but he's shown markedly better form on both starts since (maiden hurdles), when second over 3m at Taunton (soft) and winning over 2m3f at Musselburgh in first-time cheekpieces; lightly raced and, although it's very much needed, he could still be capable of better.

In career-best form, following Wincanton win under Hugh Nugent with places at Leicester, Market Rasen and Haydock; goes well in the mud and all starts on softer than good, which might leave him with bit to prove with drying ground here, but he should stay beyond the 2m7f of last two starts.

Won novice hurdles at Warwick (3m2f) and Southwell (3m) before finishing a long way behind in Grade 2 novice event at Doncaster; possible that soft ground explains that poor show, in which case he could still bring potential to this handicap debut.

Races a bit lazily and had first-time cheekpieces (retained today) when well beaten in quite valuable handicap at Haydock on latest outing; had a solid record before that in this first season under rules, including Ascot maiden win and Doncaster 3m third on handicap debut; not dismissed.

Scored at Stratford (2m6f, good) on hurdles debut and finished second at Towcester later in November; 33-1, soft ground and cheekpieces when soundly beaten in a Grade 2 novice race in January latest, so there were enough excuses, and he's shaped as if 3m for this handicap debut will suit.

Lightly raced over the last two years and with a very mixed record; won at Wincanton (2m5f, heavy) in December before the step up to 3m1f saw a fair third to Taj Badalandabad at Huntingdon; after flop in the Pertemps Final he sports headgear first time.

Long absence before this season and had a wind operation before penultimate start (cheekpieces last three); placed since when front-running over 2m5f at Ludlow and Kempton; ran respectably once at 2m7f in December but this demands a big season's best.

Lightly raced; third over 3m1f at Cheltenham in November was creditable but pulled up on both starts since; all three runs this term were on soft ground; whatever was ailing him last time, it did not look to be solely the ground conditions and he needs to return with enthusiasm renewed.

0-5 sent over fences this term, best efforts when third in handicaps over about 3m at Ludlow and Doncaster before well beaten facing stiff task in a Grade 2; last season's hurdles form was a bit better and this looks a very competitive mark if he's back to form for this hurdling return.

Placed in two Pertemps Finals here; wins elsewhere last April and July ensured a career-high mark, off which he was not disgraced here in October despite coming only 11th; absent since; drying ground suits and he goes well for Kevin Dowling but would still need another career best to win.

Chase debut last time (August) was respectable and he'd been very solid over hurdles going into that, including under Charlie Hammond; stays 2m7f (unraced beyond that) and drying ground would be fine but he's handicapped up to his best.

Won over hurdles last March and June; two good placed efforts before he fell at Sandown in February on first attempt at 3m, too far out to say how he might have fared; cheekpieces last two starts; same mark back hurdling and, with stamina in the family, he's considered each-way.

Looked a very useful stayer in the making last season until showing no zest in the Scottish National on final outing; very similar displays this term at Cheltenham (3m3f chase) and Kempton (2m5f hurdle) sound a huge warning note, for all that he goes back up in trip today.

It took until penultimate start before he was back to form this season, when runner-up over 3m at Wetherby, but he then found a quite valuable event at Haydock far too tough; best efforts on soft or heavy but it's a long time since he ran on anything else.

This is third start since wind surgery and he was not disgraced on heavy ground last time; even if back to form of Plumpton 3m1f win under Harry Teal in October, though, he'd surely need to find extra.
