    I like 4 in this at the moment.

    At 20-1, and possibly going back over hurdles. is Edwardstone. I think that he is well handicapped too.

    I think that Christopher Wood is an interesting one for The Ditcheat team. He is 25-1 at the moment. I think I’ll probably bet him first of all.

    From the Henderson team, there are lots who look perfect for this race, but at 14-1, I do like Mister Coffey

    The other one I like is Faivoir, but he might have a fight on his hands to make the field.

    I think that Sky Pirate is a very interesting entry back over hurdles at 20-1.

    Fred is another one who’s been chasing this year, and I think he’s a good price at 33-1.

    I’ll wait for now though with this one.

    Milkwood and third time lucki are the two that catch my eye at this stage

    I’ve taken the 14-1 on Mister Coffey now, but I’ve held off so far with Christopher Wood or Faivior

    Roses, did you take that 20’s for Sky Pirate? I know he’s being considered for The Arkle now, but he didn’t do his prospects here any harm at the weekend.

    Lemons, interesting entry for Faivior at the weekend. You’ll be delighted to know he’s getting added to my shortlist now.

    I have a shortlist of 3 in this so far. The most obvious is Metier who has looked excellent so far over hurdles. A competitive handicap hurdle like this will be a new experience though so his jumping will need to stand the test.

    Next up is Mister Coffey. I am convinced that he’s much better than his last run, not that it was too bad or anything. I just think this lad could be more than a handicapper in time. Definitely when sent chasing.

    Finally Llandinabo Lad. He should love the furious pace and is still unexposed and improving.

    Still no closer to a bet here, but glad I held off, as two of the initial shortlist were scratched today.

    I’m favouring Solo or Faivoir just now, but won’t have a bet now until the five day stage I’d imagine.

    Shortlist
    Faivoir 25’s
    Gumball 33’s
    Solo 25’s

    Bob, on Favoir, it’s a shame that Haydock won’t be going ahead now by the look of things, that could have been a good prep.

    He’s my early selection too, 14-1 is worth an early punt.

    I took the 20’s VtC. I was happy with that initially, but will it fit in with their Arkle plans. I’m not so sure.

    I think they would be crazy not to come here with Sky Pirate. With the best will in the world, I doubt he can win an Arkle – but he is very well handicapped here for a big prize. No brainer!
