301 redirect assistance (1 post)

    I realized this morning that I shouldn't have had you change the post-name to match the changes I made in the title because it is breaking people's links to my blog.

    What I did is add the characters "review-" to the beginning of the post_name field. Now the links that are going to those pages are broken. What i would like to do is strip the characters "review-" so I am going to run this sql query

    UPDATE wp_posts SET post_name = replace( post_name, ‘review-’, '' )

    Then I would like to do an htaccess redirect to direct anyone who has a link to

    http://dearauthor.com/wordpress/review-

    to be redirected to http://dearauthor.com/wordpress/

    Is this possible?
    Is that possible (before I run the sql query)
