Four of these finished second last time out and there's a good chance the winner will come from one of the quartet. The selection is SHAMLAN, who was a good second here last month on his first run for Kevin Frost, and he remains well handicapped on his old form. Seven-time course winner Berlusca could be the main danger ahead of Unit Of Assessment, with King Oswald the other contender who is looking to go one better than last time. The return to this track and the drop back in trip could prompt a good run from Cat Royale.[Ben Hutton]

Good third with visor back on at Lingfield (1m2f) last month and beaten just a neck over the same C&D nine days ago; big player off the same mark if performing to a similar level on Tapeta debut.

On a 23-race losing run and soundly beaten over around 1m4f the last twice, which has been the distance for his last two wins; however, he's been hinting of late that this trip may be more suitable at present, and off his reduced mark he's not ruled out.

Stamina to prove at this trip and well beaten at Southwell on last month's stable debut; however, he may not have taken to Fibresand and the way he finished when second over 7f here in September suggests he's worth another go at this sort of distance; same mark here and not ruled out.

Still early days with this good yard and he was hampered when well beaten over C&D last month, his first run beyond 7f; however, he's now been soundly beaten on all three runs for this stable and the first-time headgear needs to have a dramatic effect.

Course winner but struggled to get competitive over hurdles in 2017 and it was the same story back on the Flat at Lingfield (where she has also won) last month; something to prove.

Non runner
Following some time off he ran well on turf on both starts for Jo Hughes in August (1m/1m2f), and was beaten just 2l when fifth on his sole run for Stan Moore at Lingfield (1m) last month; has run well here and could be thereabouts on this first outing back with Jo Hughes.
