MADE FOR YOU arrives following a creditable second at Warwick on his return from a break and goes well for Daire Davis. Olly Murphy's seven-year-old can improve on that off a 2lb higher mark, but the Donald McCain-trained Collingham went out on his shield when attempting to supplement a Wetherby triumph at Ayr and will be a big threat. No Mor Isolation remains unexposed and is next best.
Prediction : 1st Made For You 2nd Collingham 3rd No Mor Isolation

GENERAL OFFICER went into a few notebooks when bolting up over C&D last month and the nature of that win suggested there would be much more to come from him. He does have to shoulder a penalty, but that doesn't look set to stop him here. Legendary Day made an excellent start to his jumping career with victory at Sedgefield and is feared most, although Lenebane receives a fillies' allowance and can also have a say in proceedings.
Prediction : 1st General Officer 2nd Legendary Day 3rd Lenebane

GAIUS was progressive on the Flat over the summer and signed off his time with Richard Hannon with an all-the-way victory at Windsor in August. He has been gelded ahead of his hurdling bow and there could be even more to come from him in this sphere. The booking of Brian Hughes on Kincade for his first start over timber is interesting and Jedd O'Keeffe's inmate warrants plenty of consideration. Freddy Robinson looks the pick of the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Gaius 2nd Kincade 3rd Freddy Robinson

Thunder In Milan has questions to answer after an inauspicious start to his chasing career at Ayr 42 days ago. MASKED CRUSADER failed to justify favouritism on his first attempt over fences at Catterick, but compensation could await with that run under his belt and this sharper test could suit. Diamond State rates the chief threat after finishing third over today's C&D in November, although Curious Times shouldn't be written off now trying his hand at this new discipline.
Prediction : 1st Masked Crusader 2nd Diamond State 3rd Curious Times

Al Zaraqaan is sure to prove popular after recording three successive victories in this sphere, but he does have more on his plate after being hit with a 9lb rise for his Fakenham success. SOCIALIST AGENDA rates a slightly risky proposition after two moderate displays, but a return to the C&D of his last win is taken to spark him back into life, with Lewis Dobb's 7lb claim effectively putting him 3lb below that victory. Smart Lass and Scots Poet may fight it out for the minor money.
Prediction : 1st Socialist Agenda 2nd Al Zaraqaan 3rd Smart Lass

Latino Fling is a reliable character and having won over 2m7f at Bangor in August prior to a fair fourth in a Kelso class 2, she can go close if ground conditions stay in her favour. However, COURT DREAMING edges preference after making a successful return from a break with a dour staying performance over fences at Carlisle. Schalke may have needed the run on his own reappearance and is also respected, while Coolbane Boy is another to note.
Prediction : 1st Court Dreaming 2nd Latino Fling 3rd Schalke

None of these can confidently be ruled out and only marginal preference is for GET WITH IT, who edges the nomination on grounds of consistency. A good test of stamina suits him well and his willingness to battle is a highly commendable attribute. His trainer has a fine record in this race too. Creative Control and Touch Kick are capable of making this a good test for the selection, while Big Difference is better than he showed at Newcastle.
Prediction : 1st Get With It 2nd Creative Control 3rd Touch Kick
