Oscar Whisky is the stand-out name among seven entries in the Betfred TV Scilly Isles Novices' Chase at Sandown on Saturday.

The Grade One contest was reopened for an extra 24 hours after insufficient entries were received, but the turnout is still low.

Nicky Henderson's Oscar Whisky was beaten on his chasing debut by Taquin Du Seuil but has since turned the table on that rival at Cheltenham on New Year's Day, as well as defeating the smart Wonderful Charm on his penultimate outing.

The chief threat could come from Paul Nicholls' Benvolio, a recent gutsy winner at Haydock. Nicholls has also entered Valco De Touzaine.

Alan King's Manyriverstocross could step up in trip, with Ardkilly Witness, Roger Beantown and Toby Lerone also entered.
