Representingceltic held on by the narrowest margins to land one of these events at Kempton last month. JETNOVA was less than a length behind in third on that occasion and can reverse running on today's better terms. Oscar Prairie and Kauto Relko share a similar rating over jumps but neither are the most reliable and Fiftyonefiftyone also arrives out of sorts. Dr Livingstone is a winner on Polytrack on the Flat while Full Ov Beans has been in decent form over fences of late.
