Paul Nicholls' horses often improve when switched to fences and the 5yo CAPTAIN BUCK'S is taken to make a winning chase debut. Beau Du Brizais bumped into an improving winner on his second chase start at Stratford last time and he is feared most. Lovely Job has been doing well in this discipline and can give another good account.[Ben Hutton]

His rivals are less exposed over fences but his chasing experience could stand him in good stead and he's been doing well in this sphere, landing two good-ground wins and a decent second at Aintree last time; respected.

Progressive over hurdles with both wins in that sphere coming here; beaten when falling at the final fence on his chase debut at Huntingdon last month but he ran a much better race when second at Stratford latest; the winner has scored twice since and this 5yo is a big player up 2lb.

Down the field in Newbury handicap hurdle three weeks ago but may have needed that first run since May; this course bumper winner won two novice hurdles last season and top trainer's horses often take their form to the next level when sent over fences.

Decent efforts in warm novice chases on his first two runs in this sphere and back in a handicap he's feasibly treated judged on last season's hurdle form; conditions fine and could go well for last year's winning yard.

On a fair mark on his best hurdle form and latest run was too bad to be true (cheekpieces adopted that day are left off here); however, he's got his stamina to prove as he now goes back over fences and others are more compelling; placed in one of his five chase starts in France in 2015.
