Verdict

Gate Please and Phone Home are the only two of these to have achieved a handicap rating but they are thoroughly exposed. Ashford Wood has been struggling for pace in bumpers so this longer trip might help while Grey Earl showed promise at Towcester and Ossie's Dancer was third at Southwell. Monkey Kingdom has won a couple of bumpers but has had his problems since running in a Grade 2 at Aintree in April last year. Queen's Star was a stayer on the Flat and will know more after a debut sixth at Fontwell but we'll give another chance to EASTERN WITNESS who may have gone off too quickly on very heavy going at Ludlow last time.
