Default Is this good or not

Hello everyone,
I'm considering to bulid a pair of Aleph-2, and the filter cap is what I looking for in these days.
I found that the siemens sikorel series have outstanding spec and performance
(the "outstanding" price,too.... )

One thing I found also insteresting is that the ripple current capability of sikorel is much better than any other very good large-can capacitor. (ex. irc of sikorel 10000uf 63V > RIFA PEH169 22000uf 63V)

So I'm wondering if I can use 4 sikorel 10000uf instead of 4 22000uf capacitors as filter capacitor?
Is that safe and enough?
