VIMIERO left behind two moderate hurdles efforts when a fine second to the 124-rated Ile De Re at Sandown latest and sets the form standard for the rest at which to aim. The consistent Guess Again is holding his form well and is unlikely to be far away while a spate of interesting newcomers add further spice to a very interesting opener. John Ferguson's Kadoodd, Venetia Williams' Brick Red and the Jim Best-trained Bollin Judith all merit close inspection in the betting.

WATERGATE, a 2m winner at Folkestone in January, is holding his form well at present and showed this longer trip holds no fears with a creditable Lingfield second when last sighted. Racing off the same mark today, compensation could be in the offing for Richard Rowe's representative. Roc De Guye remains only 3lb above his last winning mark and looks the main danger, with January C&D winner My Faithful Annie racing from 5lb out of the handicap proper.

Hit with an 11lb rise for her comfortable C&D romp here in December, Elegant Olive might be worth taking on with HOHLETHELONELY. The selection was reluctant to race at Ludlow last time but he's expected to benefit from the return to this trip and remains on a competitive mark, only 5lb higher than when scoring over C&D in January.

DOT OR FEATHER took to fences like a duck to water when scoring on his chase debut at Fakenham last time. Ian Williams' representative jumped and travelled well, forging clear for a cosy victory, and today's stiffer test has the potential to unlock further improvement in this winning pointer. De Forgotten Man fell on his chasing bow at Warwick but has better to offer in this sphere, while a big run from Sound Accord cannot be ruled out, as he continues to slide down the handicap.

MALANOS was no match for Ranjaan (first) and Lemon Drop Red (second) when third in a juvenile hurdle at Kempton in December but with both of those rivals likely heading for Cheltenham this month he clearly lost little in defeat. His latest Sandown second marked a forward step and it shouldn't be long until he is making his presence felt in handicaps. Handicap newcomers Hogan's Bridge and Go Set Go both warrant a market check and make most appeal of the remainder.
