The one that appeals most is FIGHT AWAY BOYS (nap) who could be on a very good mark in this sphere if his runaway win over a subsequent winner in a point when last seen six months ago is anything to go by. He has conditions to suit, is the type to do well for this yard and is taken to beat Ange Des Malberaux, who wasn't at his best last time but has decent claims on the pick of his hurdle form.

Below best after a short break last time but knows how to win and looks worth a go at this trip; trainer among the winners; can't be ruled out in open event.

Hasn't achieved much under rules but ran away with a point at Hexham last time (second has since won) and of obvious interest back in this sphere from low mark on first run for trainer.

Multiple hurdle winner but hasn't been anywhere near best on last four outings, including over C&D last time; down to a good mark but more needed before he's worth a bet.

Dual hurdle winner who had limitations exposed up in grade at Wetherby last time; however, had previously run creditably at Kelso and has each-way claims back at this level.

Only one piece of worthwhile form over hurdles and even that effort (at this course over a year ago) leaves her with plenty to find on these terms.
