Hereford runner-up BAHAMA MOON remains well treated judged on his Flat form and can go one better. Night Of Glory races off a handy-looking mark back over hurdles on his debut for Iain Jardine and handicap debutant Ain't My Fault is another for the shortlist.[Steve Boow]

Four-time Flat winner who has been placed on all three attempts in handicap hurdles, good second to subsequent scorer at Hereford (2m3f, good to soft) latest; should cope with drop back in trip and warrants respect.

Missed last season and performed below best on reappearance two months ago but may prove sharper for that run; won off 1lb higher in April 2017, so looks well treated if back on song.

Below best over hurdles and fences this season, dropping in the weights as a consequence; however, had wind surgery since last run and looks well treated if that operation prompts a return to form.
