Walkinthewoods steps up in trip having kept on for third over an extended 2m3f at Chepstow and enters calculations with that in mind, but the application of a visor could help ROGER RAREBIT build on a series of very consistent efforts. He was a beaten favourite when sporting first-time cheekpieces at Hereford last month and is fancied to find the necessary improvement. A 4lb rise for Bert Wilson's Plumpton success looks unlikely to stop him having a say in proceedings.
Prediction : 1st Roger Rarebit 2nd Walkinthewoods 3rd Bert Wilson

Chandlers Bay was keeping on when coming to grief at the final obstacle at Wetherby on his racecourse bow over this trip in October and has been given time to get over that. However, GEORGI GIRL bolted up on her debut at Ludlow and is fancied to make it two from two. Juggernaut is worth some thought now switching to timber, while Solomoon sprung a surprise at Doncaster but now has to concede weight all round.
Prediction : 1st Georgi Girl 2nd Chandlers Bay 3rd Juggernaut

Despite having to shoulder joint-top weight, FLOWING CADENZA is the one to beat after a facile success at Hereford over this distance just before Christmas. Venetia Williams' mare takes a drop in class and is expected to go in again. Bolintlea recorded an emphatic win at Fakenham and has to be feared along with Advantura, who was only narrowly denied when sent off favourite at Taunton.
Prediction : 1st Flowing Cadenza 2nd Bolintlea 3rd Advantura

A few of these look to hold claims, so OSCAR THYNE receives what can only be a tentative vote. He made a pleasing stable debut when third at Cheltenham in November (form worked out well) and Paddy Brennan now takes over the reins. Midnight Ginger won nicely at Newbury and demands respect. Zertakt cost 195,000 euros and warrants attention on his UK bow, with Top Target and Mr Muldoon adding further spice to the race.
Prediction : 1st Oscar Thyne 2nd Midnight Ginger 3rd Zertakt

The form of LIGHTONTHEWING's Exeter success took a big boost when the runner-up came out and won readily next time, and Sue Gardner's charge can defy a 7lb rise in the ratings. Henschke posted a solid placed effort at Hereford last time and he is likely to give another good account, while point-to-point scorer Kym Eyre could potentially improve for this switch to fences.
Prediction : 1st Lightonthewing 2nd Henschke 3rd Kym Eyre

SHE'S A SAINT (second) finished ahead of Poetic Music (third) when the pair chased home the highly-touted Luccia at Newbury in Listed company. Dan Skelton's mare has subsequently filled the same position at Taunton and the drop in class is likely to see her go one better, despite Poetic Music being open to further progression. Qoya and Nikhi ran to a decent level on the Flat and are both of interest, especially with the weight-for-age allowance.
Prediction : 1st Shes A Saint 2nd Poetic Music 3rd Qoya

THREE CLIFFS BAY was in the process of running a fine race on debut on Welsh National day at Chepstow when losing his footing and falling inside the final furlong. It is hoped that experience hasn't left a mark on him because he displayed a fair amount of ability and compensation may await Evan Williams' gelding. Alcedo won nicely at Hereford just before Christmas and has to merit serious consideration, while Hello Pops and Present For Me are a couple of newcomers who make a fair amount of appeal.
Prediction : 1st Three Cliffs Bay 2nd Alcedo 3rd Hello Pops
