After a lengthy absence Courtesy Call ran well for a long way on his return last month and is entitled to benefit from that outing, while useful Flat stayer Perceus is open to further progress in this sphere. However, THROTHETHATCH (nap) is on a good mark based on his form over fences and may well prove good enough to making a winning handicap hurdle debut on his first start since joining Dan Skelton.[John Acton]

All three wins under rules gained in chases on soft/heavy (2m-2m3f); absent since runner-up over fences for Lucinda Russell in March and makes handicap hurdle debut from 5lb lower mark; tongue-tie fitted; lightly raced in this sphere and interesting contender on stable debut.

Five-time winner on the level who was beaten 30l following more than two years off at Worcester (2m) last month, fading out of it from the second-last; stays well on Flat and moving back up to 2m4f in his favour; likely to be sharper this time and better expected with that run under his belt.

Off the mark over hurdles on handicap debut at Stratford (2m6f, good) in July but disappointed when favourite at Uttoxeter (2m7f) next time; bit to prove now but only five starts in this sphere and may be capable of resuming his progress.

Useful stayer on Flat; sole win over hurdles in weak Uttoxeter maiden (2m4f, heavy) last December; below best at Newmarket last time but that was after a five-month break and possibly needed it; open to further progress now back over hurdles and one to note; seems versatile ground-wise.

Gained sixth win over hurdles at Market Rasen (2m7f, good) in July from 2lb lower but struggled both starts since, including back there latest; needs to raise his game with a first-time visor replacing the usual blinkers.

No impact the last twice when switched to fences (2m/2m4f) but previously running well over hurdles, including second from 2lb lower than today at Worcester (2m, good in July); better expected back in this sphere but stamina still to prove at the trip.

Won on the Flat in April but well held in six subsequent outings, most recently beaten 11l back over hurdles last month; now only 2lb lower than when last successful in this sphere in May 2015 so could be on the premises if building on that latest effort.

Both hurdle wins gained last autumn, including C&D; several respectable runs on Flat this year before lesser effort on AW last time; edging back down weights but profile over hurdles is inconsistent.

1-6 over hurdles, the win gained in a 2m maiden (good to soft) here nearly a year ago; no improvement in three starts since, soundly beaten at Southwell on handicap debut when last seen in May; not solid but resumes from 4lb lower and did seem to get this sort of trip trip once in 2015.
