This ordinary race may go to the veteran BILLY MERRIOTT (nap), who will have strong claims on this reappearance if in the same form as when a close second in a useful hunters' chase at Newbury on last season's return. Militarian is next best, ahead of Samson. [Mel Cullinan]

Veteran who can be troublesome at the start, as when second at Stratford last time in April; previous second on his seasonal debut in decent hunter chase at Newbury in March makes him of strong interest off this mark and confirms that he can go well fresh too.

Point winner who has some decent rules form under usual rider James Martin, including latest second at Hexham (3m, good) when back from a break; may be that bit sharper now and very much respected.

Bumper winner who was off the mark over hurdles in a maiden at Market Rasen (2m4f) in May; under pressure in fifth when falling three out on chasing debut at same track earlier this month; this 6yo has potential for his good yard but that latest run hardly an ideal introduction to fences.

Lightly raced maiden who has shown plenty of ability on occasions over hurdles, including when keeping-on second in 2m6f novice at Stratford last time in April; a contender for sure if able to reproduce that sort of form now on chasing/seasonal debut.

Fair winning novice hurdler last season, his success coming at Fontwell (2m3f, heavy); this half-brother to a 3m point winner took a heavy fall on recent chasing debut and others here have more pressing claims.

Bumper/hurdles winner who is 0-7 over fences; rather an up and down look to his chasing form but back on track when running on well into second at Hereford (2m5f) last time and a repeat of that would see him firmly in the mix.

Won amateur riders' handicap hurdle at Wincanton (2m4f, good to soft) in April; comprehensive defeats both starts since, latest run possibly needed but the one before that coming at 2m7f and raising a question mark about this trip; chasing debut now and others are preferred.

Won at 100-1 in 2m5f Ludlow maiden hurdle in January and wasn't too far off that form in defeat next time; however, last two runs, particularly when pulled up on recent seasonal/chasing debut when his jumping didn't pass muster, leave him with something to prove; cheekpieces now.
