Catchin Time completed a hat trick when scoring over a slightly shorter trip here in February but has run poorly since taking a heavy fall on his two subsequent starts. Maria's Choice has yet to win over hurdles but his second here in December was easily his best run so far. The veteran RAGDOLLIANNA is another maiden over timber but won on the Flat at Kempton in August and did enough on her return to hurdling here last month to merit the selection. Warrant Officer is a regular around here but though producing a couple of recent runs that would put him into contention, has not won in 18 starts over hurdles.
