HAMILTON'S FANTASY looked a useful prospect when second in a bumper at Ascot in November and can provide Nicky Henderson with a second successive winner of this race. Little River Bay is respected as a dual winner but it won't be that easy to concede 12 lb all round and it would be no surprise if the main threat came from expensive Irish point recruit Shirocco's Dream.

  2. SHIROCCO'S DREAM (IRE)
