With plenty of rain forecast this morning the ground could be testing, which will hold no fears for hurdling newcomer DALI MAIL who was an easy winner of a Kelso bumper on heavy going last season. Fellow bumper winner Peters Cousin is feared most having been a decent second over C&D on her hurdle debut. Sporting Press, also making his second hurdle start, is a possible improver.[Ben Hutton]

Good third in Kelso bumper in January, his second start, and built on that with easy win there (also heavy) next time; tough task in Aintree Grade 2 when last seen in April; brings potential to this hurdle debut; respected.

Consistent in her three bumpers last season, winning at Carlisle (2m1f, soft) on debut; 7l second to a 1-3 winner over C&D (good) on hurdle/seasonal debut; solid claims on that form and she's open to improvement, too.

Form of narrow Musselburgh bumper win (2m, good to soft) isn't overly strong, and more needed than when 10l fourth of five there (1m7f, good to firm) on recent hurdle/seasonal debut; however, that was a warm novice event and he could come on for the run; second in a point on yielding to soft.

Runner-up in bumper here (2m, heavy) on debut in January (sole run for Donald Whillans) and also showed promise when fourth on stable debut at Perth (2m, soft) in April; could have a part to play on first hurdle run.

Kept on for promising third in Killarney bumper (2m1f, yielding) on debut in May before winning five-runner bumper at Down Royal (2m, good); subsequently bought out of Eddie Harty's yard for £39,000; has potential but his bumper form isn't at the same level as some of the others.

Easy winner of Irish maiden point in October 2016, his sole run in that sphere; just one start since, when well beaten in warm Punchestown bumper this April; retains potential, however, and market check advised having made the journey from Northern Ireland for this hurdle debut.

Nothing like the force of old on two Flat starts in September, after two years off, and no match for the winner when second of five at Sedgefield (2m1f, good) on hurdle debut three weeks ago; however, there was some promise in that run and today's slower ground could be a positive; not ruled out.

In good hands and has had wind surgery since his last run in September; however, he's been beaten soundly enough on all three starts (two bumpers, one novice hurdle) and a big step forward is needed; a tongue-tie added.
