Although he lacks previous hunter chase experience, MASTER BAKER is a progressive pointer who recorded the fastest 3m time on the card at Milborne St Andrew last month. Fly West, runner-up in another race at that meeting, is likely to prove a serious rival with Moral Hazard the other one with live claims.[Jonathan Neesom]

Runner-up in this a year ago and has taken another leap forward this season with two open wins in heavy ground; another candidate to consider in a competitive contest.

Progressive pointer last year and ran well when third in a Cheltenham hunter chase as well; beaten favourite on recent seasonal return but ran well enough and strong contender; has won on testing ground.

Dual pointing winner and, though he was well held over C&D on January's hunter chase debut, that was a stronger contest; others still have better credentials, however.

Maiden point winner last year and also ran creditably in a hunter chase but limitations seemingly exposed in other starts; well held on only start in 2018 and others have achieved much more; cheekpieces back on.

Useful performer up to 2015 but has deteriorated since and tailed off on both starts for current yard this season; others far more likely.
