In-form runners are in very short supply so the good recent efforts of FIRMOUNT GENT count for a lot here and, provided he can avoid the sort of mishap which cost him probable victory at Plumpton last week, Dan Skelton's 11yo will have good prospects of a second chasing win. Mazurati and Glengra are best of the rest. [Mel Cullinan]

Belated first win under rules at Bangor last month and would probably have gone in again but for unseating at the last when leading at Plumpton last week; this will be his fourth race in six weeks but big player off same mark as last time if in same form again.

One win over hurdles came at Leicester (around 2m4f, heavy) in February 2016; bit to prove on last season's form but he is a 6yo who could be better over fences so not discounted on his chasing/seasonal debut; no cheekpieces.

Lightly raced maiden who comes from a bang in-form yard; off since jumping let him down last time in February; previous 13l second at Doncaster on chasing debut is good enough for him to command plenty of respect here; that was at 2m3f but was only beaten a length in one of his 3m points.

Only win came here, over hurdles; well beaten over C&D on second chase start last time last month, when she might have been remembering unfortunate experience on chasing debut at Market Rasen in May when held in second when falling two out; a contender if back to the form she looked like showing there.

Off since disappointing over hurdles in May; this lightly raced chasing debutant had previously shown some promise on handicap hurdle debut at Wincanton (2m4f) and it is possible this half-brother to useful hurdler/chaser Jetstream Jack could yet find some improvement, so not ruled out.

Modest maiden hurdler when last seen out under rules early two years ago, though would have a real shout on his best run, a close second off 9lb higher than today at Southwell back in March 2015; twice a point winner last season and a contender if putting his best foot forward on chasing debut.

Lightly raced maiden who is upped in trip here (unraced beyond 2m4f); some ability in bumpers in 2015 but hurdles form is modest and was beaten a long way on chasing debut recently (from 11lb out of the handicap, at 100-1); others preferred.
