8/13
Smart hurdler though well held after wind op in County Handicap at Cheltenham in March. Sort to do well over fences so most interesting chasing debutant.

Poor maiden hurdler. 22/1, well-held eighth of 14 in handicap chase here (24.2f, good to soft) on debut over fences 23 days ago. Easily opposed in this tougher company.

7/2
Useful chaser who (cheekpieces on) got back on track when third of 7 in handicap chase at Kelso (17.1f) 39 days ago, doing too much too soon. Solid claims for in-form yard.

11/1
Fairly useful hurdler. 10/1, shaped as if in need of run when fading ninth of 11 in 3m handicap at Perth 32 days ago. Should strip fitter now and respected on fencing bow.

Verdict

ADJALI has kept good company over hurdles and appeals as the sort to do well over fences so is taken to make a winning start here. Forecast has yet to get his head in front since sent chasing but is capable of useful form so should ensure Nicky Henderson's 5-y-o doesn't have things all his own way. Taxmeifyoucan appeals as the pick of the remainder.
