Smart hurdler who has yet to match that form over fences, beating only one over C&D 19 days ago. Cheekpieces go back on and more is needed if he's to gain a first chase win.

Useful hurdler who quickly matched that level over fences when readily scoring over C&D in November. Yet to be asked for his effort when unseated 4 out there last time, and can gain compensation here.

Dual hurdle winner who struck at third time of asking over fences at Southwell before creditable third at Doncaster. Quirky sort who is fitted with cheekpieces now. Respected.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

FRANSHAM looked sure to play a part in the finish when unseating 4 out here last time and is fancied to gain compensation off a handy-looking mark. Destined To Shine is also weighted to have a say on the back of his encouraging reappearance Haydock third, with both Hollywoodien and Across The Line not discounted either in an open handicap.

Betting Forecast

9/2 Hollywoodien (Fr), 11/1 Cornerstone Lad, 4/1 Destined To Shine (Ire), 5/2 Fransham, 11/4 Across The Line (Ire)
