Mulcahys Hill sets the standard on his Bangor effort but he needed motivating early in that contest and is worth opposing with AINTREE MY DREAM (nap), who showed his turn was near at Uttoxeter. Sully d'Oc Aa could be a threat to both on his chasing debut for new trainer Anthony Honeyball.[Jonathan Neesom]

Smart novice hurdler at best (peak RPR 147) and back on song when narrowly beaten at Bangor last month (cheekpieces fitted, retained); form of that race is strong (Calipso Collonges, subsequent conqueror of Aintree My Rhythm, tailed off) so leading claims; wind surgery since; not entirely straightforward.

Three hurdle wins in France for Guy Cherel at the end of 2017; not seen since (withdrawn from intended British debut in November) but fascinating contender on chasing debut (dam won over fences).

Tailed off on his return from more than a year off but much more like it when only nabbed close home in a Uttoxeter handicap next time; back in novice company with live chances; soft ground best and usually makes the running.

Talented hurdler but only win came in 2013; never able to land a blow on recent chasing debut, after a blunder, and just too many doubts for now.

Dual novice hurdle winner last season; shaped well on his chasing debut and still in the hunt when departing next time; good enough to be involved but others have achieved more.
