1. Constitution Hill (Nicky Henderson/Nico de Boinville)
Irish point recruit who created a really good impression when making a winning start over hurdles in a C&D novice 5 weeks ago, travelling strongly and quickening clear. Very exciting prospect.

2. Datsalrightgino (Jamie Snowden/Gavin Sheehan)
Fairly useful and consistent in bumpers last season and 2-2 over hurdles, namely novices at Fontwell and Cheltenham. More to come and well worth a go at this higher level.

3. Jetoile (Ryan Potter/Lorcan Williams)
Placed just once in 4 Irish points but he's quickly developed into a useful novice hurdler, making all in Chepstow maiden and Leicester novice around 2½m. Back down in trip here.

4. Mr Glass (Paul Nicholls/Harry Cobden)
Dual bumper winner last season and has landed a 19.5f Chepstow maiden and 2¾m Newcastle novice since switching to hurdles. Shorter trip asks different question but he likely has more to offer.

5. Shallwehaveonemore (Gary Moore/Jamie Moore)
Made impressive winning bumper debut at Kempton in March and shaped with plenty of promise when second on Ascot hurdle debut, form which has been boosted by the third winning since. Sure to improve.

6. Whizz Kid (Dr Richard Newland/Sam Twiston-Davies)
Useful on Flat (stays 1½m) in Germany so clearly quite an interesting recruit to hurdles but this is a tough starting point.

Timeform Analyst Verdict:

Constitution Hill looked something out of the ordinary when scoring on his C&D hurdle debut and is strongly fancied to take the step up in class in his stride. Shallwehaveonemore shaped well when second in a decent race at Ascot on his hurdle debut and is feared most ahead of the Paul Nicholls-trained Mr Glass.
