Shaped well at Ludlow in May but failed to back it up next time, underlining that he's not one to rely on. Back from 175 days off, and others make more appeal.

Five-time winner over hurdles and, though he has a rather uninspiring record as a chaser, he's on an appealing mark now and his latest effort contained more encouragement.

Hit and miss profile overall but he has been holding his form of late and gained reward with victory at this course a fortnight ago. Up 4 lb and chance can't be ignored in a weak race.

Bumper winner for Olly Murphy. Fair form over hurdles for this stable (good third in handicap at Worcester last time), and likely to be well schooled ahead of this chasing debut.

Timeform Verdict Timeform Verdict

This might not take much winning and it would be no surprise were ROQUE IT to make a better chaser than hurdler, so he gets the narrow vote ahead of recent winner Catch The Cuban, who is hard to place maximum faith in due to temperament issues. Caspers Court is also worth considering.

Betting Forecast

14/1 Landsman (Ire), 11/2 Eragon De Chanay (Fr), 9/4 Catch The Cuban, 11/4 Caspers Court (Ire), 7/2 Roque It (Ire)
