Innisfree Lad cannot be discounted under a 7lb penalty for his easy Uttoxeter win nine days ago but it's possible that the heavy ground exaggerated the winning margin and he may not find it easy to repeat the performance so soon afterwards. Cheque En Blanc holds obvious claims following last month's Taunton win but it might be worth siding with AMBERJAM. Although pulled up over fences last time, his previous second over fences at Plumpton came in a higher grade and these conditions will suit back him over hurdles with French conditional Maxime Tissier looking good value for his 7lb claim.

Improved when scoring by a very wide margin over 2m7f at Uttoxeter last time; possible that his superiority was exaggerated by heavy ground and he may not find it easy to repeat the performance just nine days after running in testing conditions but still has to be respected under his 7lb penalty, especially as he remains unexposed.

Has regained some form since joining Gary Moore a few months ago, following up his fair thirds at Plumpton and Fontwell with a 3m win on soft at Taunton; back up 6lb but he was a convincing winner and probably still has some scope off today's mark.

Appreciated the step up to 3m moving into handicaps, finishing third at Ludlow before staying on for second at Towcester (both on good to soft); never really threatened a win in either so he will have to find a bit more to score but that isn't impossible as he remains lightly raced for his age.

Pulled up at Market Rasen last time but a good second in Plumpton handicap before that, both over fences and in a higher grade than this; last win over fences came off today's mark; effective over hurdles and suited by 3m on soft; Maxime Tissier also looks good value for his 7lb claim (2-6 in Britain this season, all for Lucy Wadham).

Second on her bumper debut for Micky Hammond last season but has shown little in her four starts for this yard, tailed off in three good-ground novice hurdles around 2m this term; tongue tied latest; dangerous to rule out on her handicap debut, though, as she faces very different conditions here which may spark improvement.

Struggled to make an impact over hurdles or fences during the past couple of seasons; dropped 19lb in the handicap over the past year and feasible that the combination of a return to 3m and soft may suit this 2015 Irish maiden point winner, but still not easy to fancy given recent displays.

Easy winner in first-time blinkers over 2m7f on good at Worcester a couple of summers ago but struggled both starts this season; yet to prove that soft ground suits and he is 9lb above his last win, so opposed on first run in six months.

Thrown in on his best but has not shown anything like it in the last 18 months; conditions fine for him but well beaten all six starts this term, visored on latest, and hard to see him arresting his slide here.
