A few to consider, with FIRESTREAM making most appeal. The Anthony Honeyball-trained gelding wasn't disgraced when runner-up under a penalty at Ffos Las last month and could go one better on this ease in trip to an extended 2m1f. Inneston proved no match for his stablemate at Newbury last month but he isn't taken lightly with improvement on the cards. I'd Like To Know is another to note after being highly tried in a Grade 2 at Sandown.
Prediction : 1st Firestream 2nd Inneston 3rd Id Like To Know

Unit Sixtyfour is likely to prove popular after romping home by 12 lengths at Warwick on New Year's Eve, but it didn't go unnoticed by the handicapper who has raised him 12lb in the ratings. With that in mind, a chance is taken on DAREBIN, who is now 15lb lower than his C&D success, albeit that was in October 2021. Line Of Descent runs off the same mark that saw him finish runner-up at Catterick last month and he can't be ruled out.
Prediction : 1st Darebin 2nd Line Of Descent 3rd Unit Sixtyfour

ALEXANDRA ROMANOV proved a different proposition on the switch to handicaps when winning over C&D last month and she looks to hold strong claims in completing the double off only 2lb higher. Legal Rights placed third on his Boxing Day outing at Huntingdon and, with the horse behind in fourth subsequently winning, he could prove the chief threat off a 1lb lower mark. Awesome Foursome may come into his own now entering the handicap ranks, with any market support making the six-year-old of more interest.
Prediction : 1st Alexandra Romanov 2nd Legal Rights 3rd Awesome Foursome

Unbeaten in three starts over the larger obstacles, COOLVALLA is fancied to continue his ascendency and shrug off a further 11lb rise in the ratings. Chris Gordon's charge recorded a wide-margin success here on Boxing Day and that track craft ought to come in handy. Juniper, who was similarly impressive when winning at Wetherby last month, appeals as the most likely danger, ahead of Alkopop, who has been running well in defeat.
Prediction : 1st Coolvalla 2nd Juniper 3rd Alkopop

Our Champ hit the woodwork on Plumpton on his latest outing but, though he's likely to be in the thick of things again, MULLINS BAY edges the vote. The gelded son of Kayf Tara failed to land a blow in his two bumper starts, but Harry Cobden opts to take the ride aboard him ahead of stablemate Sister Saint and he appeals as the type to progress over hurdles for the Paul Nicholls team. Doyen For Money heads the remainder.
Prediction : 1st Mullins Bay 2nd Our Champ 3rd Doyen For Money

ART DECCO didn't quite see out three miles at Uttoxeter last time and dropping back in trip should really suit Robert Walfor's charge as he looks to get off the mark at the seventh time of asking. En Coeur could not have won any easier at Plumpton but an 8lb rise for that success makes life tougher, as well as being winless in 11 starts at this track. Twasn't The Plan and Waikiki Waves can also have a say in proceedings.
Prediction : 1st Art Decco 2nd En Coeur 3rd Waikiki Waves

A promising runner-up at Thurles in November, SPITALFIELD is an intriguing recruit to the Jonjo O'Neill stable and he is open to further improvement on just his third start. The son of Mahler is narrowly preferred to Duhallow Tommy, who has performed with credit on both starts under Rules, as well as impressive point-to-point winner Townhill, who is now in the care of Tom Lacey. Film D'action is another to note for a stable that knows how to ready one first time out.
Prediction : 1st Spitalfield 2nd Duhallow Tommy 3rd Townhill
