Nicky Henderson probably holds the key with Jenkins, who has his sights lowered in a serious way and is also fitted with blinkers, and CHARMING ZEN who won both his starts for other stables and surely has potential. One For Billy should be thereabouts and there's a chance that one or both of Gary Moore's Maquisard and Le Precieux will now prove a lot more competitive again.[Richard Austen]

Won French hurdle race in October 2016 and obliged by 5l when 5-4 favourite at Doncaster (2m, good; same owners) last February on sole start for Dan Skelton; took a while to get on terms in the latter and may prove ideally suited by further but very much needs a market check in what may not be that strong a race; James Bowen 4-7 before today for this yard.

Yet to justify initial tall reputation, albeit with only five hurdle starts; excuses on reappearance in big Cheltenham handicap but never looked like getting in a serious blow at Sandown latest; both were respectable judged on his previous form and although the first-time headgear needs to make a difference, he's edging down the weights and this is a big drop in class.

Won at Warwick (2m, good to soft) in November before creditable fifth of 13 off revised mark at Doncaster; 7lb claimer is recruited; probably not far away.

Last season's promise has not yet been built on; heavy ground helps to excuse reappearance and a bad blunder two out finished any chance he had in useful Ascot handicap next time, but doubt he would have been placed even without it; work to do.

Rather patchy form but he won by 6l in seven-runner handicap at Sedgefield (2m1f, soft) five weeks ago on latest outing; cheekpieces (tried nine times on Flat in 2016, including a hat-trick) return and, back up 7lb, he does need to build on that win.

50-1 and off 13 months when well beaten at Doncaster four weeks ago; peak efforts in previous campaigns give him a chance but it's hard to bank on one of those.

Won one of four starts over hurdles in France in first half of 2016; also scored twice on the Flat last year but 50-1 and tricky to settle before fading badly when back to hurdling for new yard in C&D handicap at Christmas; could come on markedly from that run but market can guide again.

Fairly useful hurdler in 2015; just fair form for David Barron on the Flat last year and soundly beaten on return to hurdling for new yard at Sandown (14-1) last Saturday, so he needs a swift and major revival.

Lightly raced French hurdle winner, 16 months off before this season; some promise from rear when fifth of eight at Fontwell (2m1f; 33-1) on second run back and he's worth a market check.
