A warm race in which UPPERTOWN PRINCE is taken to make a winning chase debut. He showed plenty of promise as a novice hurdler last season and trainer Donald McCain is excited about sending this point winner over fences. No Hassle Hoff should be a tough opponent after his good chase debut fourth at Sandown recently, and he is feared most. Kalahari Queen and Red Indian could also have parts to play.[Ben Hutton]

Hurdle form tapered off at Cheltenham and Aintree festivals last spring but much more like it when good fourth in novice handicap at Sandown (2m4f, soft) on recent chase debut; that form gives him leading claims today.

Promising novice hurdler last term, winning here (2m4f, soft) then fourth in Aintree Grade 1 (3m, soft) when last seen in April; that form stands up well in this line-up and he could be even better over fences, as he's a point winner and his trainer is excited about sending him chasing.

Second in competitive Grade 2 mares' novice handicap hurdle final at Newbury (2m4f, soft) in March, and also showed good form when runner-up at Worcester (2m4f, good) on last month's chase/seasonal debut; lightly raced and, with a bit of improvement, she could be in the mix on these terms.

Winless last year but this consistent sort ran fine races in defeat for Ben Pauling in some big handicap hurdles, including the Coral Cup (2m5f, soft) at the Cheltenham Festival; player if able to transfer that form on this chase/stable debut; new trainer has made good start to career.

One win (dead-heat) from 14 point starts, runner-up in that sphere the last twice; this 5yo may be able to win races under rules but this is a tough introduction against some classy types.

10yo who has a healthy strike-rate, with six wins from his 23 starts; however, he looks outclassed in this company on his chase debut.

Won Irish maiden point (3m, heavy) in April, his fourth run in that sphere; fair third in Wetherby novice chase (3m, good) on rules debut, and today's slower ground could suit better, but he's still got lots to find.
