Tim Vaughan's unexposed 5yo CAP ST VINCENT (nap) has taken well to chasing this autumn and is selected to overcome an 8lb rise for his recent Ludlow success. The 12yo Civil Unrest is on a fairly tough mark now but he runs this track well, is in decent form and may be allowed an uncontested lead. Monsieur Co flopped when favourite to make a winning stable debut this month but it will be interesting to see whether he is strong in the market again.[Chris Wilson]

0-5 over hurdles but built upon promising chase debut when scoring by 8l at Ludlow (2m, good) 11 days ago, where he shrugged off a bad blunder at the third-last fence; 8lb higher now but still makes plenty of appeal.

Useful chaser when trained in France but generally disappointing for Paul Nicholls in Britain and failed to justify strong market support when well-held fifth on stable debut at Kelso this month; sports first-time cheekpieces/refitted tongue-tie here; Brian Hughes keeps the ride; evidently thought capable of much better.

Well beaten over hurdles after break last month and first-time cheekpieces (retained) seemed only to have mildly positive effect on latest outing; reverts to chasing on a handy mark but needs to up his game.

Runner-up both starts since scoring at Cartmel (2m1f, good) in May, latterly at Kelso (2m1f, good) this month, and is a four-time course winner; long in the tooth now and holds no secrets from the handicapper, but likely to make another bold bid from the front.

Gave good account when second at Kelso (2m5f, good) this month and should be fine over today's shorter trip but that latest piece of form was recorded in a slow time and he's now 0-10 over fences; others preferred.

Useful in his prime but seemingly out of sorts on his four appearances this year, the last twice with cheekpieces added; will be suited by today's trip/ground but revival needed.
