DR SANDERSON has three wins from four starts over hurdles and improved for the step up in trip at Ludlow last time out. Clearly thriving on his racing and a horse who enjoys good ground, Paul Nicholls' charge can go from strength to strength. Dashel Drasher is on a four-timer after an impressive Newbury triumph and must enter calculations, while Cotswold Way is a nice type and Mill Green is another expected to go well.

Mister Whitaker needs to step up but the Cheltenham Festival winner sports first-time cheekpieces and could be interesting if recapturing his form from earlier in the season. Wenyerreadyfreddie is surely better than his latest showing and is noted for leading connections, but HIGHWAY ONE O ONE was inconvenienced on soft ground in the Close Brothers last month and this could be the time to catch him back on better ground. His second here in January reads well after the winner finished fourth in the JLT and won at Aintree.

Just 2lb higher than when winning a Grade 3 over hurdles at Ascot in January last year, Jenkins is interesting reverting to the smaller obstacles and joins stable companion Rather Be and top-weight Unison on the shortlist. I'm A Game Changer should run his usual honest race but LE PATRIOTE boasts two wins from four starts wearing cheekpieces and looks the one they all have to beat following his ready Ayr triumph in November. He arrives here fresh and that could be key.
