The very lightly raced NICEANDEASY (nap) is open to further improvement this season and can make a winning reappearance. The similarly unexposed Sunny Destination was a promising second here on his recent handicap debut and he is feared most, ahead of the progressive Mighty Thunder. Four-time course winner Plus Jamais goes well fresh and is also considered on this reappearance.[Ben Hutton]

Bumper winner who, following wind surgery, has displayed improved form to finish second on both runs this autumn (2m4f/2m5f, good); has shown promise some promise on soft/heavy; could be more to come from this lightly raced 5yo and he's on the shortlist.

Underwhelming finish to last season in February but this very lightly raced 5yo retains potential having won three of his six starts, those wins coming on soft/heavy; trainer's horses often go well when fresh.

Best form has come over fences but he has a lower hurdles mark; two chase wins (2m4f, soft/heavy) last season from five starts and he's got a good record when fresh in recent years; has won here four times; respected.

Lightly raced 9yo who returned from a year off in January and worked his way back into form, runner-up at Kelso (2m5f, heavy) in April then decent fourth there (2m6f, heavy) when last seen last that month; thereabouts if returning in that sort of form but record when fresh isn't compelling.

Pulled up/tailed off on his three starts this term, so plenty to prove form-wise, but there have been possible excuses, namely the lack of a recent run, good ground, then it being his chase debut; on a competitive mark on last season's heavy-ground form and not ruled out with cheekpieces added.

Below the mark off which he won at Kelso (3m2f, heavy) in January and may have needed his recent return from a break (following a wind op); however, that's now his fifth consecutive run when he's been well below his best, and he's yet to win away from Kelso.
