Easily good enough to win a race of this nature but not straightforward and hung away his chance at Kempton in October; faded out of a decent handicap latest and has since left Jane Williams; tricky call.

Bumper winner last season and off the mark at the second attempt over hurdles when making all at Ascot (2m3f) last time; promising 5yo who ought to have more to give but improvement is needed in a significantly better race than last time.

Third of 12 in Wincanton bumper (good to soft) on debut in April, splitting two horses that have run with significant credit over hurdles in recent days; can't be ignored.

Decisive winner on third start in points; fulfilled promise of rules debut when winning bumper at Sedgefield last time; promising youngster who will have no problems with this trip but more needed on hurdles debut.

Half-brother to 2m4f-3m hurdle/chase winner Timeforwest; won well in a decent Fairyhouse bumper for Margaret Mullins last December, soon after which he was sold for £350,000; top yard won this last year and this highly promising 5yo commands a lot of respect here.

Safely held in Newbury bumper on last month's seasonal debut but made pleasing hurdle debut when second to useful rival at Southwell (3m, good to soft) 16 days ago; major player if coping with the slower ground here.

Consistent and creditable efforts in four bumpers last season (cheekpieces fitted for the latest); bred to appreciate a longer trip and should be able to make an impact on hurdling debut.
