Timeform take you through the card at Southwell on Tuesday...

"He's fully expected to get off the mark at the third time of asking over hurdles."

Timeform on Settie Hill

17:30 - TOO MANY DIAMONDS (1) was well beaten into second on his only chase start by an above average sort back in September, but if you take that run at face value, he's potentially on a very good mark in this indeed. Considering that he won 4 times over hurdles over the space of 8 days around this time last year, he gets the vote to win this. Global Domination scored at Fakenham last time and is respected raised just 3 lb in the weights.

18:00 - CONNA CROSS (1) made a good start to his chasing career at Kempton last month, proving better than ever and suggesting that there was more to come in this sphere. He's lightly raced, and is fancied to defy a 7 lb rise and follow up here. Get Rhythm suffered a fall at Bangor last time, but rates as the biggest threat provided he's none the worse.

18:30 - GALWAY JACK (1) is on a roll at the moment, and there's little reason to oppose him in search of the five-timer, as he looks the class act in this field. Johnny Og is perhaps the one to go with for forecast purposes.

19:00 - ARTHUR'S REUBEN (3) seems to be going the right way at the moment, which is more than most of the field can offer, running well last time from 1 lb out of the weights despite not being seen to best effect. Considering that plenty of these have significant questions to answer, he is by far the most solid option and makes strong appeal. News For Pascal ran well on the back of a long absence at Newcastle last time and is feared most, provided that hasn't taken it out of him.

19:30 - SETTIE HILL (4) shouldn't have to break a sweat to win this, and is impossible to oppose. He's fully expected to get off the mark at the third time of asking over hurdles.

20:00 - In a particularly trappy affair, a chance is taken on VISAGE BLANC (6). She offered something to work with when finishing in midfield in a stronger race than this at Stratford last time, which came after a five month absence. For all that she's become frustrated, that run hinted at a return to form, and she's chanced to get back on track. Beyeh is holding her form reasonably well at the moment, running respectably on the Flat last time, and she is feared most.

20:30 - FROZEN FLAME (8) shaped with promise on his Huntingdon handicap debut 3 weeks ago, and he can build on that by getting off the mark here. Laugharne made a solid start for his new yard last time and is respected, whilst Notnow Seamus is interesting switched to Dan Skelton.
