Harry Whittington has his team in fine form and his AFFAIRE D'HONNEUR is taken to make a winning debut over fences. There are chasers in his pedigree, he clearly goes well fresh and he's on a decent mark compared to the pick of his form over hurdles. Nathans Pride has been running in stronger company over hurdles and is a player in this grade but he will have to jump with more fluency than he did on his chase debut. [Richard Young]

Capable hurdler with chasers in his pedigree; below best when last seen in the spring but stable in good form and, although best efforts have been in softer ground, he is very interesting on debut over fences.

Knows how to win and running well over hurdles of late, including when returned to current trainer last time; 4lb lower for return to fences so no surprise to see him go well back up in trip.

Hurdle winner who ran creditably over C&D last time; this is tougher but she is open to improvement and no surprise to see her give another good account.

In fine form earlier in the year with four successive good-ground wins over fences and far from disgraced over further here last time; return to this trip should suit and he's a player.

Bumper and dual hurdle winner who should be better for latest outing at Sedgefield (chase debut) after a break; longer trip may help and, although she needs to improve, can't be ruled out.

1-6 in points but fell sole outing over regulation fences (hunter chase); has since run creditably over hurdles and has claims back up in trip in first-time cheekpieces for handicap debut.

Decent strike-rate in bumpers and over hurdles but soundly beaten sole previous chase start (wasn't fluent) and hasn't been at best over hurdles of late; drop in grade will suit but something to prove in this sphere.
