Second at Leicester last time out was easily the best effort from DYLANSEOGHAN (nap) over fences and, with more possibly to come from him on just this fourth chase start, this former point winner looks the best option. Global Domination is next best. [Mel Cullinan]

Point winner (3m, heavy) in 2015; one good run to his name over hurdles and ran easily best race over fences when second at Leicester (2m6f, good) last time; a major contender on that effort and, after only three starts chasing, may well come on again.

Back-to-back wins a couple of seasons ago and is 4lb lower here than for the second of them; bit disappointing last time but previous run on return from 22 months off suggested the ability is still there and is a definite contender here if that last run is overlooked.

Infrequent winner but did get it right here (2m4f) in May; second over C&D in October but better form when runner-up again on stable debut over 2m4f at Southwell last time and best efforts are at shorter than this trip; others preferred for win purposes.

Won the Grade B Troytown Chase for Gordon Elliott back in 2015 but unsuccessful since; something to prove on recent efforts but he is dropping in the weights and trainer's horses can suddenly bounce back to form, so not ruled out in an ordinary race.

Two good efforts for his new trainer this season, latterly making all to win at Ludlow, when jumping soundly on the whole apart from diving at the last; perhaps the good to firm ground was too fast when pulled up last time; handles soft and a contender if back to that Ludlow form.

Sole win came over hurdles here (3m1f) in 2016; easy to oppose on recent efforts over fences, last time well-held third at Fakenham; out of the handicap here.

Best run for around two years when second over C&D on seasonal debut over Christmas; however, forced to run off 5lb higher mark here as he is out of the handicap and he'll need to improve on that form to win this.

Hasn't threatened in nine starts since winning at Chepstow back in March 2016 (2m7f, heavy) and has been pulled up/well-beaten fourth in two starts for his new trainer; others have much more pressing claims.
