Bentelimar was pretty unlucky at Cheltenham last time and Bobo Mac looked in career-best form on his latest hurdles start, albeit before falling at the last. However, the ex-French 5yo TERREFORT must be of major interest on his first run for Nicky Henderson.[Richard Austen]

Sole chase win when beating three other finishers in 2m4f novice at Wexford in June; checked on home turn when good, rallying third at Cheltenham (2m, soft) four weeks ago on second run for this yard; seriously considered.

Fulfilled previous promise when winning a maiden hurdle at Southwell (2m4f, soft) last March; shaped as if better still in 3m handicap at same track last month but fell when keeping on well at the final flight; that fall is a nagging worry for this chase debut and he's back up 4lb.

Two seasons back he won three times over hurdles, twice on soft, and he's well handicapped on the best of that form; negatives are that those wins were at 3m/3m2f, he's never jumped a fence under rules and last month's return from a 20-month absence saw him soundly beaten.

Plenty of progress on chase/seasonal debut when forging clear in Fontwell handicap (2m3f, good) but he's not lived up to that in his three starts since; partial revival in first-time headgear (absent today) on latest outing but others look more solid.

Ex-Flat horse whose jumps career has been all at around 2m, winning on soft in March in 2016 (here) and 2017 (Ludlow); a fair bit to prove here on first chase start, first run over this sort of trip and first time out.
