A tough handicap to solve but DEBDEBDEB could be the answer. A three-time winner on the flat with a peak rating of 90, she showed plenty of promise when with Donald McCain last season, winning a small race at Catterick with an accurate round of jumping from the front and showing a willing attitude in the process.

Switched to Dan Skelton for the start of this season, her slick hurdling was again in evidence when making a winning debut for the trainer at Kempton at the end of January. The second that day has won since to frank the form and, while she’s gone up 11lb, she is still very much at the right end of the handicap, with Bridget Andrews taking a handy 5lb off. Given she stayed 2m on the flat, there is every chance today’s extra three furlongs will bring about some further improvement and her jumping might just make the difference for her in this more competitive race.

Of the rest, the Jonjo O’Neill-trained Montdragon could give her most to do. He is chasing a hat-trick after wins at Warwick and Haydock and a 7lb rise for the latest of those seems fair. Top weight Different Gravey is also respected after winning three of his starts over hurdles, though he’s seen more as a future chaser and mat his need the run after a 309-day absence.
