Paul Nicholls feels Politologue can avenge defeat to Defi Du Seuil when the pair meet on Saturday in the Tingle Creek Chase.
Philip Hobbs' Defi Du Seuil beat Politologue by a length-and-a-quarter at Cheltenham in November but Nicholls is confident his charge can turn the tables at Sandown this weekend.
"We are 3lb better off with Defi Du Seuil and hopefully they will go a better gallop," said Nicholls. "You never know what will happen because it is a different race on a different day. He will definitely run well.
"He ran very well at Cheltenham because he had to do all his own donkey work and they sprinted from the back of the last, and he was giving weight to the winner."
