Smad Place did not just win this last year, he won by a street, and no way is he dismissed despite today's 11lb higher mark. However, there is potential in a number of last season's novices and the winner may well come from that group. Native River will surely not be able to dictate the pace this time and needs to prove that he has sufficient gears, so he is passed over in favour of UN TEMPS POUR TOUT who so impressed with his handicap win at Cheltenham in March and looked ready to peak again when he scored over hurdles on his reappearance. Down-the-weights Saphir Du Rheu is shortlisted given the way he nearly grabbed second on his return, while Blaklion and Henri Parry Morgan are among the others to consider.[Richard Austen]

Novice wins last term included Grade 2 at this meeting and Grade 1 at Aintree (3m1f, good to soft) in April, following his second over 4m at Cheltenham Festival; cheekpieces helped on those last two starts and reappearance second in Grade 2 over hurdles was full of promise; also able to dictate the pace the last twice, which will be much more tricky here, but otherwise there is plenty to like about him.

Won French Champion Hurdle in June 2015 and hit that form once last term as a novice chaser, on another big day when winning by 7l in 3m1f handicap at the Cheltenham Festival; today's 10lb higher mark demands another career best but reappearance hurdles win was promising; player.

Creditable return at Wetherby four weeks ago, for which he should strip fitter, and this greater stamina test will surely suit; last season's novice wins included Grade 1 RSA at Cheltenham in March (below best behind two of these at Aintree next time) and he's respected.

A leading staying hurdler and novice chaser two seasons ago; fair fifth when favourite in this last year before taking a major downward turn in both disciplines; reappearance third at Ascot was not a return to his best but it was his most competitive show for a long time and he shaped nicely for this second crack at the Hennessy off 10lb lower than in 2015.

Grade 2 wins as a novice hurdler and novice chaser, latter at Ascot in February before about 10l fifth to Blaklion at Cheltenham and fifth to Vicente in Scottish National; on a decent mark and, although well adrift of Un Temps Pour Tout on a recent hurdles run, he's considered.

Deeply impressive in this on soft last year and also won Grade 2 on heavy at Cheltenham in January; again comes here with an encouraging reappearance under his belt and, although 11lb higher than last year, his fluent jumping at or near the front should put a lot of his rivals under pressure; another bold show is in the offing.

Transformed once tongue tied early this year, easily winning two novice handicaps before 3l second to Native River in Aintree Grade 1; unseated in contention just behind leaders six out when favourite for the big end-of-season handicap at Sandown; missed intended return with dirty scope; may have more to offer.

Third in this race in 2013 and runner-up in 2015, latterly with cheekpieces removed (as they are today); that record commands respect, as do his valuable win at Kempton in February and reappearance second at Wetherby after a wind operation, but he's now just 1lb shy of career-high mark so needs to hit new heights.

No denying he is very well handicapped judged on best chase efforts, which include his fourth in 2015 Cheltenham Gold Cup, and he's only 3lb higher than when second to Un Temps Pour Tout at Cheltenham this March; however, major doubt over whether this is his time of year.

Last term he won at Sandown (3m5f) in December second time out but pulled up at Cheltenham in March and rather disappointed in big end-of-season handicap back at Sandown on final outing; promise two seasons back is not entirely forgotten but he needs to better anything he did last term.

Sixth, second and ninth in the last three editions of this race off slightly higher marks; concern that he sparked only once last season but that came when winning Grade 2 at this track by a huge margin in first-time cheekpieces; pulled up in them in Aintree Grade 1 next time but judged on that win on soft he'd be a leading contender.

4-7 over fences last term as a novice, highlighted by his clearcut win in Scottish National at Ayr in April; up 5lb but chief concern that his best was over 4m and this is 3m2f and that could also test his jumping more severely; vulnerable without improvement.

Best day in Britain winning Grade 3 Fixed Brush race at Haydock two years ago; touched off in Grade 1 over French hurdles last November but has not fared so well in France on latest three outings and in a brief foray last winter there were his only two starts over fences, when odds-on winner at Uttoxeter but pulled up at Cheltenham; claims far from solid.

Won this race in 2013 off 3lb lower but, pulled up 12 months later, he's had a light and largely fruitless career since; he did win a three-runner race in January, however, to show he's not a spent force; trainer adamant that soft ground is against him.

Usually front-runs; pulled up at Aintree on final start last season but, after a wind operation, returned with a jolt of improvement to win in rallying fashion in valuable race at Cheltenham (3m1f) five weeks ago; may have turned a corner but, upped 8lb and substantially in class, much more to do.

Won last October before excellent second over 3m3f at Cheltenham; easily best of four starts since came when fifth in first-time blinkers in same Cheltenham event two weeks ago, and that having threatened a refusal to race, but he needs to hit a major new high to play leading role in this from 3lb out of the handicap.

Four non-completions in his last six starts; at least he signed off on a positive note in April when second in 15-runner handicap at Punchestown (3m1f) but handed a career-high mark as a result and plenty to prove even if this turns out to be another of his good days.

Sent chasing last December in 2m7f novice handicap here and it went well with 13l win from the front; knuckled down well to see off a very useful rival at Kempton (3m, soft) before a lesser show in the NH Chase at Cheltenham but that wasn't hard to forgive over 4m with interference; can still do better but this is clearly a tough race in which to show it.

Cheekpieces (last worn five starts ago) return; won the big end-of-season handicap over 3m5f at Sandown in 2014 off 6lb higher than today but lightly raced since with no serious impact; a couple of runs last term give a bit of hope bearing in mind this reduced mark and he may have needed Ascot reappearance, but others more solid.

Went the wrong way last season; down the weights, staged a big revival to break a losing run at Chepstow in October on reappearance, but did not back that up at Aintree two weeks later; stays 3m but there must be more solid propositions.
