BROADWAY JOE was unlucky to meet one when he was denied the 4-timer here five weeks ago and can take his wins back at the expense of Rafferty, who is progressive himself and had a bit on hand in a first tongue strap at Southwell last month.
C&D Scorer INCA PRINCE hasn’t looked back since joining Ruth Jefferson and is looking the way forward in his hat-trick attempt. Impulsive One, however, assesses a big threat if they return to their best after a modest performance at level, while Irish challenger Calvados is not ruled out either.

A useful novice in which SINCE THE FIRST DAY arrives firmly on the upside and is expected to complete his quadruple at the expense of Restandbethankful who should ensure that the promising son of Donald McCain of Fame And Glory does not have things his way. Livelifetothemax and Kihavah must also be considered in an intriguing contest.
Several with a cry but SAINT-SONNET signaled he might be ready to strike when he’s a runner-up in Wincanton on Boxing Day, so Paul Nicholls’ charge wins the provisional vote to get better here. Wakool continued his remarkable improvement this season to make it 4-5 at Ayr 5 weeks ago so he is seen as a clear danger, progressives Brorson and Seddon should also do well.

STAR OF SARASOTA made a smashing start over the fences, his jump again looking like a real asset as he doubled his career tally at Chepstow in November. A runner-up in both starts since, he gets the green light to put forward another bold bid forward. Nero Rock ran well in its debut for Jennie Candlish and holds claims with repeat. Cedar Hill rounds out the shortlist.
POKIE PEKAN looked as good as ever when he missed an emphatic winner on C&D 5 weeks ago and he dominated again. Magna Sam is the obvious threat after his bloodless victory on this C&D in December.

DIAMOND STATE and Zafar battled for the finish on C&D last time around and they might just fill the top two spots one more time, but maybe the former takes the edge slightly with a 1lb swing at the weights (Zafar also without Theo Gillard this time). Three castles are also worth considering.
