Your Band, who finished a neck second to My Bobby Dazzler at Aintree back in June, aims to bounce back after finish third over C&D three weeks ago.

Alastair Ralph’s recruit sits at his last winning mark but he will need to improve on his last outing if he is to be competitive here.

Sheila Lewis’s Cotton End was bumped up 6lbs in the ratings following her Aintree success over the minimum distance last month, but she could return to form here.

The mare has been dropped back down in class following a 14 length defeat at Cartmel at the end of June and has been stepped up back up to 2m4f for the first time since May.

The seven-year-old does have a single success over this distance, which came in similar conditions at Hereford back in October.

She could well perform in this company and she is one to watch out for at a decent price.

Cousin Oscar, who finished a distant third over 2m4f at Aintree last month, is dropped back down to the minimum trip over hurdles.

Donald McCain’s recruit has only competed over this distance twice in the last two years, finishing outside the places on both occasions.

The nine-year-old has been dropped back down in the ratings and he is now only 1lb higher than the mark he last struck at.

He will need to show some improvement here, but he has a 5lb claimer booked him which should benefit him.
