Fair winner over hurdles. Runner-up first 2 starts over fences and contender if a lesser run at Wetherby last time can be forgiven. First-time blinkers replace cheekpieces.

Benefited from fitting of cheekpieces towards last season, scoring at Wincanton and almost following up here. However, he hasn't returned in same form, pulling up on both starts. Had wind op.

Poor strike rate but he's looked capable over fences and likely would have won over C&D last time had he jumped the last cleanly, going down by only a head. Big player.

Irresolute hurdler but made a good start over fences when going close over this C&D in November. Never travelling when pulled up last time, but now 2 lb lower and claims if in the right mood.

Fairly useful chaser who went close to opening account in this sphere over C&D in December. However, not in the same form at Wincanton since and may again find one or two too good. Tongue tie added.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

STORM HOME has gone a while without a win but he looked a bit unlucky here last time and may be able to gain compensation off only 2 lb higher. Seemingly So, Jean Genie and Sandy Boy all need to shrug off lesser runs last time but are all capable of playing a part here if turning up in the mood.

Betting Forecast

9/2 Seemingly So (Ire), 33/1 Putdecashonthedash (Ire), 7/2 Storm Home (Ire), 10/1 Rathlin Rose (Ire), 13/2 Sandy Boy (Ire), 5/1 Broadclyst (Ire), 13/2 Jean Genie (Fr), 11/1 Wagner (Ire)
