Whenever jockey Brian Hughes and trainer Donald McCain team up you always have to take note of their runners. He was very impressive over fences last season, winning five times in novice company.

He is currently 3-3 and is looking to make it a four timer by winning again here. This fine jumper took apart the rest of the field in a 12-runner handicap hurdle at Worcester last time out winning by 10 lengths.

Has to be respected off that showing.

Accidental Rebel

T: Fergal O'Brien
N/A
Age: 8
Weight: 11-0
OR: 122
Days: 51

He has definitely improved since leaving trainer Henry de Bromhead to go and join a trainer in form Fergal O’Brien.

The oldest horse in the line-up, but a progressive one as he completed a hat-trick in elegant success in a Worcester handicap in July.

This 8 year old was only beaten a neck off a 6 lb higher mark back at Worcester last time out, and he will have to show more in this company if having a chance to go close.

Cheekpieces will be applied on him for the first time which could potentially make a difference. One at a bigger price who may be able to threaten.

Quid Pro Quo

Age: 6
Weight: 11-0
OR: 133
Days: 128

One of two for trainer Dan Skelton in this race. He won a Hereford bumper on debut and the form has worked out very well from that race.

The J. P. McManus owned horse then returned from 15 months off with a success on hurdles debut in May, he won that very cosily.

Steps up massively in class and has to tackle Grade Two company here, but for sure the worthy favourite.

Won really impressively last time out at Newton Abbot beating Vis a Vis by 7 lengths. No reason why he will not improve again, looks like an exciting individual.

This 6 year old gelding got back on track when making all of the running in a Fontwell maiden in March, and then improved again when defying a penalty back in a handicap at Exeter only a few days later.

Is certainly a strong contender in this field as he comes from a yard who have hit the ground running so far this campaign. Highly respected.

This 6 year old son of Shantou notched up an impressive third in a Warwick Grade 2 on just his second start under rules in January.

Three of his four career starts so far have come on soft/heavy ground so he will want better conditions here.He was a remote third in the mud at Haydock before progressing nicely to win at this course in March.

He may need the run, but can play a part if fully ready to give his all. Not out of things.

Was a bumper winner over 2m at Worcester and did not disgrace himself over hurdles in some deep looking races (Class 3 events)It is important to mention this horse won really, really well last time out following a breathing operation at

Kempton in May and certainly remains with potential over hurdles considering he will be stepping up in class here.

Cannot be ignored and can make himself a player if progressing from last win.

Beat nine other rivals in a maiden hurdle at Southwell in May, he won that well showing a lot of enthusiasm that day. Made it 2-2 as he followed up at Ludlow and is for sure open to more improvement.

Huge step up in grade and an outsider for a reason, but can be one to potentially have a decent season.

Just has not won his races as well as others in this race so hard to fancy here.

Trainer Dan Skelton’s second runner in this race. The only filly in this contest and she hit form when she completed a four timer back in June.

She was faced with another easy assignment on paper in a six runner novice at Newton Abbot, winning that by 3 ¾ lengths.

This is much harder for her so she may find it tough, one of the more unlikely winners.
