Jeremy Scott won this in 2012 and 2013 and may be able to land it again courtesy of THE SNAPPY POET, as he looks reasaonably treated for his debut over fences judged on his latest second over hurdles at Fontwell. Kinari's winning run came to an end at Perth but this return to a likely quicker surface will help despite this trip being on the short side for him. Best of the rest are Wait A Second and Sky Lino who are unexposed types who may be lurking on good marks. [Kevin Morley]

Taken reasonably well to fences and scored on fourth chase start, in novices' handicap over 2m last time out; up 4lb in a better race and this trip probably the limit of his stamina.

Has been in fine form over this summer and completed a hat-trick over 2m7f here in June off 9lb lower; winning run came to an end when second at Perth latest but that was on unsuitably soft ground; respected despite today's trip being a minimum for him.

Ran well on his first couple of starts over hurdles but bit disappointing he hasn't been able to build on it since, including when fourth in a maiden event at Newton Abbot latest; possible he could be lurking on a good mark though for his handicap debut over fences; wears a first-time hood.

Won a bumper at the third time of asking but couldn't build on that in three starts over hurdles last term; remains unexposed but makes handicap/chase debut after 171-day absence and others look more convincing; wears a first-time hood to accompany usual tongue-tie.

Successful over C&D on handicap hurdle debut last term off 2lb higher but not built on that since; well held on chase debut over 3m at Uttoxeter latest; may not have got the trip there and remains relatively unexposed, so dangerous to dismiss.

Ran well on her chase debut when second at Uttoxeter in July but couldn't build on that when a well-held last of four at Stratford last month; looks high enough in the weights for her handicap chase debut.

Missed last season but has returned in good form over hurdles this term and form of his latest Fontwell second received a boost when the winner followed-up; looks reasonably treated for his chasing debut and every chance if he takes to fences; trainer won this in 2012 and 2013.

Struggled on his last three starts but wasn't beaten far when second at Kempton (2m2f, good) four starts ago off 3lb higher; not without a chance if returning to that form but others preferred judged on more recent efforts.

0-10 over hurdles although probably ran a career-best when third at Market Rasen last time out; didn't shape like a future winner and off the same mark here on his chase debut; usual tongue-tie absent and cheekpieces back on (worn once before with little effect).
