Sword Of Fate made a perfect start to his chase career here recently and he is tempting off the same mark back over hurdles, but a galloping track will surely suit him better and perhaps SYMPHONY OF ANGELS can make a winning start for Dan Skelton. He didn't run through all the options for his previous trainer and the way he ran on his return from a break at Cheltenham was pretty encouraging. Idder, another who is worth a second look for his new yard, and Stole The Show are others to make some appeal.[Emily Weber]

Bumper/dual novice hurdle winner on good/good to firm; chasing is going to be his game and impressed when making a successful debut over fences here last month (2m, good), but tempting to have another go over hurdles off the same mark.

Going the right way in 2m novice hurdles last June (soft/good) and quite an encouraging handicap debut when back from a layoff at Cheltenham in April on final start for Graeme McPherson; dropped 2lb and can do better again this summer.

Immediate payday for new yard when winning at Fontwell in May (2m3f, good) but wasn't the same proposition when unpenalised after; had more of a break this time but 3lb higher and he has some interesting rivals.

Won only course start, over fences in May (2m, good) and generally in good form, albeit he hasn't been able to take advantage of this sort of mark in his two most recent hurdle starts; likely to need a bit more.

Won first two starts for this trainer last July (about 2m, good to soft) and though beaten favourite on next three starts he still ran well in defeat; step up to 2m5f didn't come off when last seen in November; returns to action in a competitive affair.

More of a chaser these days but has a much lower hurdle mark and wasn't disgraced in a better handicap at Sandown in December; likely to have needed his latest run at Kempton and has possibilities at this level.

Well beaten on unsuitably soft ground when last seen for James Moffatt in November but chance on his best sharp-track form on good; worth considering on debut for new yard; tongue-tie replaces regular cheekpieces.
