The lightly raced 6yo SHORT FLIGHT has hinted that today's combination of 2m4f on soft ground could be ideal and he's taken to come out on top. Main Fact won in good style over 2m1f here last time and is feared most, ahead of Pixiepot who was back to form last time. Wazowski and Wind Of Hope are others who can go well.[Ben Hutton]

French Flat winner who made a winning handicap hurdle debut here (2m1f, soft) last time out in November; now 8lb higher but he had 5l to spare and there could be more to come in this code; every chance he'll stay this far.

0-13 over hurdles but, having dropped down the weights, she returned to form on her second start back from a long absence when second at Market Rasen (2m, good to soft) last month; won't mind the step back up in trip, or the soft ground, and she can again be thereabouts today back up 2lb.

With these cheekpieces back on he returned to form over C&D (soft) on Boxing Day, crossing the finishing line in first but demoted due to interfering with the runner-up (drifted badly left); might not be the easiest ride but still respected up 5lb.

Soundly beaten in sixth on his first two handicap starts, at Southwell (2m4f, good) then Newcastle (2m, soft) seven months later, but he's unexposed and there have been hints that the combination of 2m4f and testing ground may prove to be his optimum conditions; could well have a part to play.

0-11 across both codes and yet to threaten, but he's dropping down the weights and was a fair seventh over C&D (soft) on Boxing Day; another 4lb lower today and could build on that first run since last May; place possibilities.

Talented Flat performer (RPR 93) when with Mark Johnston and market check advised as he makes his handicap hurdle debut after an absence; however, he was beaten a long way on his first three hurdle/stable starts early in 2017 and he's hard to make a case for on that form.

Placed in three of her four points and this handicap debut provides her with a first realistic opportunity under rules; however, she hasn't shown much in a bumper or on her three hurdle starts.
