This should be fast and furious. Wells de Lune has major claims in this league but he may well be taken on for the lead and the ground could be quick enough for him. Starkie has run well the last twice but this might be the opportunity for NUMBERCRUNCHER to come good again.[Jonathan Neesom]

Front-runner who won at Ffos Las in February; failed to complete at either Cheltenham or Aintree but these are calmer waters and could prove hard to catch if all goes well; ground quicker than good would be a slight concern.

Smart performer in Ireland but already beaten when unseating at Leicester in March on first try under David Maxwell (favourite); no doubt capable of much better but does have to prove it now.

This trip/ground ideal in hunter chases, as he showed when beating Exclusive Rights at Stratford a year ago; ran well enough at Cheltenham this month to suggest the ability still there and should be involved.

Uneven look to her form and pulled up at Stratford last month on stable debut but has twice finished second in hunter chases there; even a return to her best unlikely to be good enough.

Winner over fences who ran well at Kempton last month before causing a major upset when beating a highly talented rival in a point (2m4f) 12 days ago; unwise to regard that as a complete fluke and he should run well.
