"Provided her jumping holds up here she should get the better of Avispa, who has had plenty of chances in similar contests and remains vulnerable for win purposes."

17:45 - Moabit and Aston Cantlow look the pair to focus on here, though Phillip Hobbs' runner is yet to win in six starts in this sphere, and arrives here on the back of a fall, so narrow preference is for Moabit, who perhaps paid the price for being the only one to throw down a challenge to the impressive Cyrius Moriviere on debut at Doncaster last time and was better than the distance beaten suggested.

18:15 - Morning Herald looked set to get off the mark over hurdles last time at Kempton but for a very bad blunder at the last flight, and provided her jumping holds up here she should get the better of Avispa, who has had plenty of chances in similar contests and remains vulnerable for win purposes.

18:45 - Get Involved shaped well on chasing debut last time at Cheltenham, but as a chaser on looks, this switch back to the smaller obstacles doesn't look to be to his advantage, and he could be worth taking on as favourite. Carre Noir showed improved form to get off the mark on his fourth British start at Newton Abbot last time and, after going through the race like one well ahead of his mark, he could go close to following up here. Tokyo Javilex was right back to his best last time and could make the places at a bigger price, with James Best taking over from a 7 lb claimer in the saddle.

19:15 - Easily Pleased arguably shaped best at the weights when unseating his rider at the last at Taunton last time, and is seemingly one of the more solid options with Nico de Boinville taking over in the saddle. At bigger prices it could be worth giving Such A Legend one more chance at this sort of trip, having been set tough tasks on his two previous tries at above two miles (plenty of encouragement in his pedigree to think he will stay) and having shaped well at Ludlow last time on his return from a break.

19:45 - Its All Or Nothing reportedly lost a shoe when failing to complete in a warm event at Cheltenham last time, which could go some way to explaining his tame capitulation after shaping well for much of the way, and he is worth giving another chance here to transfer his point-to-point form into hunter company.

20:15 - Misterton has proven consistent in three runs in bumpers, finishing fourth on debut and second on his two most recent starts, and sets a fairly useful standard here. It is tough to see him out of the places under the champion jockey.
