REDICEAN was impressive when opening his account over hurdles in style over course and distance last time and Alan King's 85,000 guineas juvenile should be capable of repeating that effort here against tougher opposition. The challenge is led by Vaziani who himself scored by nine-lengths on his hurdles bow, with handler Robert Walford operating at 25 per cent of late. Kempton should suit Kapdad much more than Newbury did and he is a potential improver to note, while hurdles newcomer Ray's The Money was a handy performer on the Flat.

Royal Magic could put his rivals under pressure if he jumps well from the front but now he's upped in trip and carrying a penalty, he might give way to SECRET INVESTOR late on. Paul Nicholls' charge found 2m5f too sharp on his seasonal bow here in November but he's a 3m point winner and is expected to go one better now granted a stiffer test. Both Duke Debarry and Chef Des Obeaux are potential improvers too now stepped up in trip and also merit inclusion on the shortlist.

Successful in a hurdle race and a chase at 2m and 2m 5f on soft and heavy ground, but last win was over two years ago. Well beaten at 16-1 when eighth of 14 on his latest outing in a hurdle race here over 2m 5f (soft) in December last year.

A competitive event but it could be dominated by the recent winners Bishops Court and THE TAILGATER. The marginal preference is for the latter because the horse he beat last time has run very well since and a 4lb rise in the ratings appears to be on the lenient side. Bishops Court won at Wincanton on Boxing Day but he is now 7lb higher and had the benefit of a 5lb claim on the occasion. Mercian Prince can be forgiven his run over the National fences last time out, while last year's second Rothman is another with claims.

Nicky Henderson has won the last two renewals of this and relies on Josses Hill this time around, who despite having question marks against his jumping, is a worthy Seven Barrows representative. God's Own is a Grade One winner and it is interesting he hasn't been seen since October when down the field at Aintree when in clear need of the run. His handler's horses are in much better form now and he has to be considered receiving weight here. However, WAITING PATIENTLY is unbeaten over fences and appears a graded winner in waiting. A delicate horse, he has been cautiously handled by the wise Malcolm Jefferson and his foot sure jumping can see the easy travelling son of Flemensfirth further enhance his reputation here.
