Although he's having to concede weight all round due to his Listed win at Auteuil in the summer, this can go to MOMBASA. David Maxwell shelled out 250,000 euros after that commanding success and this looks an ideal starting spot for the son of Martaline. Wholeofthemoon shaped well on his hurdling debut when runner-up at Wetherby, and the nature of this track may just play to his strengths. Achnamara showed a good level of form on the Flat and is worth a check in the market.
Prediction : 1st Mombasa 2nd Achnamara 3rd Wholeofthemoon

HARLEM SOUL was an easy winner on his chasing debut at Wincanton last week and is the one to beat again now turned out quickly off just 3lb higher. Forward Plan should have more to offer with his attentions now switched to chasing, but this trip looks on the sharp side. A bigger threat may come in the shape of En Coeur, who finished runner-up over today's distance at Plumpton in October and races off the same mark.
Prediction : 1st Harlem Soul 2nd En Coeur 3rd Forward Plan

El Hageb Rose sprang a huge surprise to win at 100/1 on his stable debut at Plumpton last month and is likely to be at the forefront of the betting in this contest off just 4lb higher. However, he needs to prove it wasn't a fluke and may prove vulnerable over this shorter distance. A chance is taken on SAN PEDRO, who didn't appear to see out the 2m7f trip at Lingfield and should be more at home over this slightly sharper test. Prison Break looks more solid than the remaining opposition.
Prediction : 1st San Pedro 2nd El Hageb Rose 3rd Prison Break

LE CAMELEON won with a little bit up his sleeve on his reappearance at Warwick and although he's been given a 5lb hike for that victory, he was strong at the line and with this extra yardage holding no fears, he gets the vote. The veteran Sir Ivan is entitled to have come on for his respectable effort at Aintree and must be respected with Harry Fry in fine form. Family Business is now upped in trip after his impressive win here last month and enters calculations.
Prediction : 1st Le Cameleon 2nd Family Business 3rd Sir Ivan

CREDROJAVA is a fascinating runner on her hurdling debut after justifying favouritism in an Aintree bumper. She travelled strongly throughout the race and has the potential for further improvement now upped in trip. Shelikesthelights appeals as the biggest danger having chased home Mullenbeg at Plumpton, and that form has been boosted with the winner going in twice again since. Lagonda is worth noting back in this sphere having had a season in point-to-points.
Prediction : 1st Credrojava 2nd Shelikesthelights 3rd Lagonda

SWINCOMBE FLEAT made a good start to life over fences when scoring at Warwick and further progression appears likely over this longer trip. Do You Think went up 8lb for her chasing debut victory at Hereford and the form was franked by the runner-up, who then ran out an easy winner at Chepstow. She has to enter the reckoning, while a return to the larger obstacles may see Aimee De Sivola in a better light.
Prediction : 1st Swincombe Fleat 2nd Do You Think 3rd Aimee De Sivola

All three victories over timber for BEAT THE HEAT have come at this track and the five-year-old arrives in search of a hat-trick. The handicapper has raised him a combined total of 12lb for his recent successes and it would be no surprise if he could take another step forward. Heure De Gloire may appreciate stepping back in trip following her third at Leicester, while Vision Clear is another to consider.
Prediction : 1st Beat The Heat 2nd Heure De Gloire 3rd Vision Clear
