No. 1

RSA Chase winner in 2020 who proved he remains equally effective over timber last season. Bit disappointing in the Liverpool Hurdle on final outing but has a good record fresh and makes plenty of appeal.

Smart hurdler who looked better than ever when breezing to success in the West Yorkshire Hurdle at Wetherby last month. Another bold showing seems likely.

Unreliable type but returned with a creditable effort behind Proschema in West Yorkshire Hurdle at Wetherby and bids for back-to-back wins in this.

Made a winning start over fences at Chepstow last autumn and generally good efforts in defeat since. Might get outclassed back over hurdles, though.
