The one to appeal most is BLACK IVORY, who is still on a fair mark after his 6lb rise for winning at Aintree last time and has the profile of a horse likely to come on again. Last year's winner Tobefair and The Organist, who is two from two at 3m, may be the pick of the opposition. [Mel Cullinan]

Useful staying novice hurdler last season, when three times Graded placed; has come on again this season for win at Uttoxeter and good fourth in Grade 3 Haydock handicap; trip/ground fine and he should run well but is weighted to his best, so could just be vulnerable.

Yet to finish out of the frame in 11 starts; good reappearance second upped to 3m at Aintree (good to soft) and went one better at same track (2m4f, heavy) last time, winning decisively in small-field handicap; 6lb rise is fair and he may have more to offer; high on the list.

Progressive second-season hurdler who won well at Ffos Las (3m, soft) last time; unexposed as a stayer and could well have more to give but he is up 12lb in a significantly more competitive race, so this is harder.

Decent strike-rate over hurdles (four from nine) and made it two from two at 3m when strong at the finish to take decent race at Newbury latest; up 6lb but unexposed as a stayer and may have more to give; leading contender.

In fine form since returned to hurdles by his new trainer this season, including winning at Ffos Las in November and second in useful race at Cheltenham last time; 4lb higher mark than last time could just leave him vulnerable for win purposes though.

Not quite the force he was since two significant absences but this C&D winner is still well worth considering after in-form recent runs at Ayr and Uttoxeter and with trip/ground ideal.

Decent novice at up to 2m4f last season; point winner at 3m but stamina still to prove at this trip under rules after weakening out of it on seasonal debut at Cheltenham last month; that run might have been needed and a bold show from this lightly raced 8yo would be no surprise.

Struggling from an early stage back hurdling in a good race last time and needs to show much more zip here; interesting on placed efforts in good 2m5f and 2m3f handicaps last winter and, with 3m fine, possibilities if back to his best.

Lightly raced for his age; career-best form when winning at Uttoxeter (near 3m, soft) last time; up 5lb in a better race and another step forward is needed.

Needs to return to best, though it is possible that this season's two runs (the first of them over fences) were needed and he did run a bit better than bare form suggests last time; only 4lb higher than when completing a seven-timer at Newbury last February, having won this race the time before, and is well worth considering in reapplied cheekpieces.

Below-par run at Ffos Las last time, when the heavy ground (has won in it) shouldn't have fazed him; had been progressing, including for win at Uttoxeter when upped to a near 3m the time before, and he's not ruled out.

Won this race in 2015; last April's win over fences at Fakenham showed that he is still pretty capable on his day but he was well-held fourth (hurdles) then well beaten (fences) on last two starts in May and July, so a fair bit has to be taken on trust by his supporters on this return from a break; cheekpieces (worn including last seven starts) left off.
