MURTYS DELIGHT has held his form well over fences since landing a Fakenham selling hurdle on New Year's Day and is perhaps the most solid option here. Archie Rice was runner-up in a similar event on his recent first run for new connections and should go close again, while this represents a drop in class for Artisan on his return to hurdling.

SOUTHFIELD ROYALE was a little disappointing last time but will take a bit of stopping if bouncing back to anything like his best form. Go West Young Man is one to be wary of, but is talented and will no doubt hit the frame again, while Gabriella Rose holds solid place claims if a lesser effort last time can be forgiven.
