Notched fourth hurdles success when bolting up at Taunton (19f) last spring. Things haven't gone to plan over fences since though, and needs to get back on track with blinkers enlisted.

Made a winning chase debut at start of 2018/19 campaign, but failed to add to his tally thereafter. Missed whole of last season, but claims off this reduced mark back hurdling if fully tuned-up.

Smart front-running chaser at his best and has scored twice in this sphere, too. Below par on return in a Perth handicap hurdle last month, but 3 lb lower now and capable of a very bold show.

13/2
Well below par in limited appearances over fences last season, but he's useful when on-song and was second off 3 lb higher on latest start in this sphere at Bangor in November 2018. Couldn't rule out.

Produced a career-best when landing a Cheltenham handicap chase in December. However, below par back from a break at Cartmel last month and she's 0-10 over hurdles. Blinkers refitted.

15/8
Improved model this year, scoring twice at up to 2¾m. Good third off this mark upped to 24.3f at Southwell last time and, with this drop back in trip no bad thing, he's one for the shortlist.

22/1
Four-time winner in 2019, but failed to fire on return at Stratford (18.7f) and he's probably a shade too high in the weights for now.

Betting

Forecast

Tel'art (15/8), Tea Clipper (9/4), Style De Garde (10/3), Capone (5/1), Ballyhill (13/2), Dream Berry (13/2), Northern Beau (12/1), Speredek (14/1), Cotswold Way (20/1), Skeaping (22/1)

Verdict

Preference is for the in-form TEL'ART, who left the distinct impression that this mark is not beyond him when third at Southwell, and dropping back in trip on this stiff track could be ideal. Style de Garde has a bit to prove following 17 months off, but he's lurking on a potentially handy mark and has to enter calculations. However, a bigger threat may be served up by the unexposed Tea Clipper.
