Timeform on No Getaway

13:50 - FLASH THE STEEL (3) failed to justify favouritism when second in handicap company at Cheltenham last time, but he still shaped really encouragingly on the day, getting the better of his private dual with the other placed horses and simply having no response when the more patiently-ridden winner swept by. That form is comfortably the best on offer in this field, and though the 3 lb penalty he has to concede to Lock's Corner makes life tougher, Flash The Steel remains open to more improvement after only four starts over hurdles and is fancied to make the switch back to novice company pay dividends.

14:20 - DALILA DU SEUIL (2) was a useful performer over hurdles in France and defied relative market ease to make a winning yard/chase debut at Exeter in December, despite racing with plenty of exuberance. The refitting of a hood should help now and she is fancied to follow up. Dan Skelton's Whatduhavtoget is expected to give the selection most to do.

14:50 - THE PREMIER CELTIC (8) failed to justify market support at Fontwell last time, but it wasn't a bad effort and the feeling is that cheekpiees will enable him to travel with a bit more verve. He could be the answer in what is an open contest, with Eclair de Guye and Peur de Rien heading the opposition.

15:25 - NO GETAWAY (7) shaped well when fourth on his handicap debut at Wetherby on Boxing Day, keeping on well to be beaten only seven lengths and leaving the impression that there could be even more to come when granted a stiffer test of stamina. Harry Skelton's mount gets exactly that here, stepping up another furlong in trip, and he could be worth backing to take advantage of what remains a fair mark, with the form of that Wetherby contest having worked out well (third and sixth both won next-time-out).

15:55 - THE BOSS'S DREAM (8) ran at least as well in defeat as when winning the time before when second at Uttoxeter last time, beating the rest out of sight only to go down to one who was thrown-in. That form leaves him 2 lb clear of the field on weight-adjusted ratings here, and with the Neil King yard continuing in top form at present (one winner and four placed from last six runners), everything looks set for another big run, back at a venue that he has won at in the past.

16:30 - BAHAMA MOON (6) hasn't been able to get the job done over hurdles this season but a subsequent wind operation might see him finally come good here. Star of Rory has a race in him in this sphere when everything clicks and heads the list of dangers.

17:00 - NEWTIDE (5) strikes as the sort to relish this sort of test judged on the way he finished at Ascot in January, so could be the way to go in a competitive staying handicap. Printing Dollars undoubedly has more to offer and is feared most.

17:30 - CHANTRY HOUSE (1) ticks plenty of boxes here, an impressive winning pointer acquired by J. P. McManus and sent to Nicky Henderson, so there's every chance he'll make a winning start under Rules, for all that this isn't the easiest starting point, with fellow point winner Story of Friends making appeal along with Edwardstone, who has already achieved a good level of form.
