5/1

Sole chase win came in 2017 (2m7f, good to soft) at Worcester, and was rated 16lb higher at the time. 8lb lower than when placed in Listed company 11-months ago. Form has tailed off since, but this drop in grade may help him to bounce back.

Veteran who has not won for a while, but stays 3m4f on heavy ground and was competitive from 1lb higher over an inadequate trip last time. Not ruled out.

Goes into this 9lb lower than when just held in a 3m5f Warwick handicap chase in spring 2017. Acts on soft, and showed that he retains ability last time, back at Warwick. Looks very interesting.

Showed almost bottomless reserves of stamina to win easily at Hexham (4m, soft) in November, when 10lb lower. Held from this mark at Kelso last time. More needed, but not ruled out of the money.

Was in good form last spring, when winning four times at up to 3m5f on testing ground. Entitled to need his reappearance run. Frame claims from this mark, but needs to eek out a bit more to win from it.

4-19 over fences. Handles soft ground well, but has yet to win beyond 3m and still has stamina to prove over this far. Plenty to prove when considering recent runs.

Scored over 3m5f at Fontwell (good to firm) in May 2017. Has only been to the races twice in 13-months, and will need to be a lot better than his last outing at Warwick in November. Not written off if back at his best.

Thorough stayer who has gone almost two years since his latest success over Huntingdon's 3m6½f trip on soft ground. Was 9lb higher then, but has not looked the same horse in the past year.

14/1

0-7 over fences. Worth a try over this longer trip, but has to prove he stays this far and even though the handicapper has been cutting him some slack, he has not yet looked capable of taking advantage.

14/1

On an 11-race losing run since putting together back-to-back hurdles wins at Wetherby and Catterick two years ago. Not showing enough over fences this season to give him serious consideration here.

8/1

Won a Towcester novices' handicap chase (3m½f, soft) this time last year, when 4lb lower. Nudged up 1lb after a back-to-form Warwick run last time, but more needed if he is to win again.

14/1

Almost two years since his sole chase win, from 1lb lower, at Chepstow (2m7½f, soft). Frame claims if at his best, but needs to be much better than on his last two starts.

Stamina assured (has won over 4m on heavy) and ideally wants more rain to make it bottomless. Has only run to somewhere near his best once this season. Not ruled out if he could return to that, but below par of late.

Betting

Forecast

Bob Ford (4/1), Ballymalin (5/1), Total Assets (11/2), Oneida Tribe (8/1), Alberto's Dream (8/1), Global Dream (10/1), Court Frontier (12/1), Royal Palladium (12/1), Weststreet (14/1), Aengus (14/1), Lac Sacre (14/1), Lowanbehold (25/1), Amiral Collonges (25/1)

Verdict

This promises to be a dour affair and Caroline Bailey may have found a good opportunity for GLOBAL DREAM to get back to winning ways. Here nine-year-old took a decent step back in the right direction last time, and a chance is taken on him. Ballymalin could be a danger down at this level, while Alberto's Dream should also be thereabouts. Several others would have claims if back to their best, but they also carry risks, and Total Assets may be more solid for those looking at an each-way play.
