This looks warm for the track. Hat-trick-seeking Manwell has prospect but CHARMANT (nap) has taken very well to chasing and can defy the handicapper's latest 9lb impost.[Paul Smith]

Capable hurdler but set to take much higher order over fences judged on easy wins over C&D and at Kelso this winter; 9lb rise demands further progress but the ground won't bother him and there could well be more to come.

Runner-up on his first six chase starts before getting it all together at Catterick on New Year's Day (2m3f, good); followed up at Wetherby a fortnight ago in good style; will need to improve again to complete the hat-trick in this better race.

Lightly raced 8yo; beaten by Hawk High in a match on seasonal/chase debut in November but ahead of that rival when close third at Newcastle (good to soft) last month; doesn't look on a bad mark for his first handicap if yesterday's Doncaster run, when running as well as could be expected when third of four in a Grade 2, hasn't taken the edge off him; respected for stable that sponsors the race.

Won three novice hurdles here last season; yet to match that form in three chase starts this winter and others more appealing in this line-up.

Won Hexham handicap hurdle off 11lb lower mark last June; run creditably in defeat over fences this year but not obviously ahead of his mark and this looks warm.

Two Market Rasen hurdle wins for this yard in August; well held in handicap here on Boxing Day though and makes chase debut in a warm race for the track.

Cheltenham Festival winner over hurdles (peak RPR of 147 in that sphere) and he's shown useful form in four chase starts too, winning for the second time when cosily accounting for four rivals at Newcastle three weeks ago; wouldn't want any more rain in an ideal world but certainly handicapped to go well.
