"...has the potential to take high rank among this season's juvenile hurdlers based on his pair of impressive C&D wins this winter..."

13:15 - DJANGO DJANGO (7) did well to win at Huntingdon in the face of an inadequate test and could well be up to the task on his handicap debut with his stamina now being drawn out. Take To Heart might emerge as the pick of Nicky Henderson's trio, however his stablemate MONBEG LEGEND (3) may be a better option for the perm. He ran in snatches last time but should appreciate the return to better ground here. Master Dancer could pick up where he left off in December and is respected accordingly.

13:50 - CYRNAME (1) has really taken well to this discipline, and lost nothing in defeat when giving weight to a younger rival last time. He remains capable of better still and is selected to secure a third chase win. The Unit looked set to push a smart rival close, before tiring late on at Huntingdon in November, and he may well emerge as the main threat to the selection.

14:25 - REDICEAN (2) has the potential to take high rank among this season's juvenile hurdlers based on his pair of impressive C&D wins this winter and can take the step up to graded company in his stride. Dual listed scorer Malaya could be the one to give him most to do ahead of French-raider Beau Gosse.

15:00 - An intriguing renewal of this Grade 2. MONT DES AVALOIRS (6) would have gone closer in the Tolworth but for a mistake 2 out and gets the nod in the hope he jumps better this time, but there are plenty of possible dangers. Scarlet Dragon and Humphrey Bogart arrive with some high-level Flat form, while Destrier, Global Citizen and Michael's Mount all look capable of making their mark at this level.

15:35 - Harry Fry landed this prize with Opening Batsman in 2013 and ACTING LASS (5) is taken to follow suit. The 7-y-o has looked every inch a natural in his 3 starts over fences and will prove hard to beat providing this new trip holds no terrors. The consistent Master Dee is feared most with Barry Geraghty aboard, while Art Mauresque, Ballykan and Tintern Theatre are others to consider.

16:10 - FOURTH ACT (3) looks potentially well treated back over fences and is fancied to take advantage with his yard hitting top form. Kayf Blanco was slightly unfortunate at Wetherby and is respected along with No Ceiling, however a second perm vote goes to FAVORITO BUCK'S (5). He was pulled up last time but had previous run well at this venue - he's been given plenty of time to get over his last outing.

16:45 - This looks a warm bumper. Though PYM has been absent since making a winning debut in April, that isn't really a concern given the yard he represents, and he could be up to defying a penalty. Danny Kirwan and Clondaw Ace both landed points last time, while Special Acceptance should relish this step up to a conventional-distance bumper.
