Peat Moss, Mick and Debt Of Honour should put their hurdling experience to good use but a chance can be taken with NAIZAGAI. Fergal O'Brien's gelding has displayed plenty of promise on multiple occasions on the Flat and he has to be respected having been purchased for 40,000gns last month. Lairig Ghru and To Fly Free are others to note based on their performances on the level.
Prediction : 1st Naizagai 2nd Peat Moss 3rd To Fly Free

FINISK RIVER bumped into a pair of useful rivals when finishing third on his Rules debut at Bangor last month and he merits the utmost respect on the back of that performance. Dont Go Gentle struggled in a Listed bumper when last seen but he had shown promise on his debut and should not be underestimated, while Now Children and Blueskyandsunshine are others who make the shortlist.
Prediction : 1st Finisk River 2nd Dont Go Gentle 3rd Now Children

HIDDEN CARGO hit the crossbar twice last month and a reproduction of either of those performances should be good enough to win this contest, despite being 4lb higher in the ratings. Mamoo won twice over hurdles at Catterick earlier in the year and he could prove to be the main threat to the selection, ahead of Aptly Put and Whateva Next.
Prediction : 1st Hidden Cargo 2nd Mamoo 3rd Aptly Put

FORT DE L'OCEAN shed the maiden tag when scoring by seven lengths over C&D at the end of last month and, despite being 1lb wrong at the weights due to carrying a penalty, the five-year-old may kick on with that victory under his belt. Dogon stepped forward from his Market Rasen comeback when winning at Southwell last week but he has to prove himself with a quick turnaround, so the main threat could prove to be Roxyfet, who enjoyed a fine winter at his beloved Sedgefield.
Prediction : 1st Fort De LOcean 2nd Roxyfet 3rd Dogon

Shantaluze is an interesting contender on his first start since March 2019. A wind operation combined with the switch to fences could unlock some improvement from Donald McCain's gelding. Captain Buck's won at Stratford last month and is respected off a 7lb higher mark, but the vote goes to PASEO. He was a useful juvenile hurdler for Oliver Sherwood last season and could make full use of the weight-for-age allowance on his chasing bow.
Prediction : 1st Paseo 2nd Shantaluze 3rd Captain Bucks

ACHILL ROAD BOY made a pleasing return to action when runner-up here over hurdles at the end of last month and the switch back to fences could see the 11-year-old get his head in front. Dee Star won at the course last May and is better than his pulled up effort at Southwell in March suggests, while a wind operation might aid the cause of Rising Marienbard.
Prediction : 1st Achill Road Boy 2nd Dee Star 3rd Rising Marienbard

Some of COOLE WELL's form over fences looks rock solid and, having placed when reverting to timber at Fakenham in March, he makes plenty of appeal off an attractive mark. Course-and-distance winner Rukwa arrives here match-fit and has the chance to better his recent third at Perth with first-time cheekpieces applied. The Steward is another who likes it here and is only 4lb higher than when an emphatic winner over track and trip last summer, with Glan Y Gors arriving on the back of some good performances on the Flat.
Prediction : 1st Coole Well 2nd The Steward 3rd Glan Y Gors

TALKINGPICTURESTV made it back-to-back wide-margin victories when romping to an impressive 12-length success on her reappearance at Market Rasen. She gets on extremely well with rider Millie Wonnacott and they can maintain their unbeaten record together under a 7lb penalty. Canford Thompson was second here over 2m1f last month and is interesting now upped in trip off the same rating, while Fleur Du Seuil has shaped nicely since the restart and is respected on her handicap bow.
Prediction : 1st Talkingpicturestv 2nd Canford Thompson 3rd Fleur Du Seuil
