HEATSTROKE had a good yardstick back in third on his first run for 676 days at Huntingdon last month, and could have more to offer for the Nicky Henderson yard if he doesn't 'bounce' here. His jumping was seriously impressive and he can prove too strong for Ashutor, who has finished second in both starts for Paul Nicholls so far this season. Ferrobin got off the mark earlier this month in a weak race and needs to step up.
Prediction : 1st Heatstroke 2nd Ashutor 3rd Ferrobin

ENVOYE SPECIAL was sixth in a Kempton handicap over Christmas that has thrown up plenty of winners, and should appreciate these calmer shores now dropped 2lb. The five-year-old remains open to much improvement and could prove too strong for Timoteo, who cruised home at Stratford earlier this week but has a 7lb penalty to defy. Eddiemaurice seems to be at home on flatter tracks and should give the form of this race a solid outlook.
Prediction : 1st Envoye Special 2nd Timoteo 3rd Eddiemaurice

Plenty of good horses have won this race in recent years, with the likes of Carole's Destrier, Theinval, Might Bite, Brio Conti and Kildisart all successful, and it can go to MY WAY, who arrived in the UK with a lofty reputation. He was disappointing on his first couple of starts for Paul Nicholls, but has shaped well behind smart prospects the last twice and will appreciate any further rain. Star Of Lanka was fourth in a hot Haydock race and merits respect, while Burrows Edge has a big weight to carry but rarely lets himself down.
Prediction : 1st My Way 2nd Star Of Lanka 3rd Burrows Edge

KAYF BLANCO picked up the pieces following Kupatana's fall to land his second win in a row at Ludlow and can complete the hat-trick at a track he has twice hit the crossbar at off similar ratings. Value At Risk is very good on a going day but is hard to predict, so a more reliable option in opposition may be Charlie Longsdon's Forth Bridge, who has finished second on his last three starts.
Prediction : 1st Kayf Blanco 2nd Forth Bridge 3rd Value At Risk

RESERVE TANK burst the bubble of Elusive Belle at Sandown and Colin Tizzard's five-year-old looks sure to keep on progressing, with this step up in trip expected to suit. The Cashel Man was only beaten a neck over C&D by stablemate Pym on his hurdles bow and will be better suited by a return to Kempton having been held over three miles at Uttoxeter, while Darling Maltaix brings smart handicap form to the table back in novice company.
Prediction : 1st Reserve Tank 2nd The Cashel Man 3rd Darling Maltaix

16:25 Kempton

Minella For Me held on to score by a nose over this trip at Wetherby but may be vulnerable following a 4lb rise in the ratings. It might be worth taking a chance on ULTIMATUM DU ROY, who is starting to look well handicapped now he's dropped to within 1lb of his last winning rating, although he does have an absence to overcome. Jarlath looks best of the rest now stepping back up in distance.
Prediction : 1st Ultimatum Du Roy 2nd Minella For Me 3rd Jarlath

17:00 Kempton

SHISHKIN improved between runs in point-to-points, scoring in that sphere in November, and is expected to show up well on his first start under Rules and debut outing for Nicky Henderson. Grey Getaway is worth a market check on his first appearance for Paul Nicholls, having run with credit between the flags in November. The pick of the remainder may be Philip Hobbs' Et Apres Thou, who is expected to know his job first time out.
Prediction : 1st Shishkin 2nd Grey Getaway 3rd Et Apres Thou
