17/2
Carlisle bumper winner. No significant impact in a trio of maiden/novice hurdles last term but perhaps the switch to handicap/fences will see him in a better light on his return.

Dual bumper winner at the start of 2018. Only modest form over hurdles since but was placed twice in handicaps off similar marks last season. Now goes chasing back from 9 months off.

5/1
Fifteen runs since last win in 2017 but should at least be sharper for a reappearance run over hurdles now tackling fences for the first time.

20/1
Modest maiden hurdler who signed off with poor effort at Ffos Las 7 months ago. Pitched straight into a handicap on chase debut so needs to hit the ground running on comeback.

3/1
Winning pointer who shaped promisingly sent chasing when third at Wetherby (3m, heavy) last Christmas. Back from poor run at Market Rasen when third at Ffos Las in March. Player if primed for return.

No impact in 2 handicap hurdles for new yard this season and was also well held over fences on final 2 outings last term. Hard to be positive.

10/3
Haydock novice hurdle winner in 2018. Lightly raced since and was a remote fourth on her Ffos Las chase debut in March but still early days and she's in the right hands to progress over fences.

20/1
Didn't offer much in 3 novice hurdles last winter but has a decent jumping pedigree and it wouldn't be any surprise to see him fare better now handicapping over fences on his return. Cheekpieces on.

Poor form in 3 novice hurdles last winter. More realistic chance now sent handicapping for this chase debut but still hard to make a case for.

Betting

Forecast

Madera Mist (3/1), Kapga De Lily (10/3), Volcano (5/1), Princess Roxy (11/2), Sea Story (8/1), Rintulla (17/2), Astra Via (20/1), Forget You Not (20/1), Black Lightning (28/1), Battlefield (66/1)

Verdict

Hard to be confident about any of these. SEA STORY has a reasonable record when fresh so this might be the time to catch her and she gets a tentative vote. Madera Mist has more experience of fences than the rest and should play a part if primed for her return. The Venetia Williams-trained Kapga de Lily could also fare better with her chase debut behind her.
