In depth

Verdict

Gizzit beat Goochpoochyprader at Warwick last week when Drawn Free unseated his rider and, as that was a conditionals' race, can re-oppose on identical terms. Karen George's gelding can confirm the form and should go close here in a race that lacks strength in depth. However, we're prepared to stick with Richard Woollacott's mare PRICKLES who won at Uttoxeter at the end of December and didn't run badly in a more competitive affair at Wetherby next time off her new mark. Military Precision and Gypsy Moth may be capable of better but the remainder need to step up on what they've shown so far to figure.
