8/1

Won just the once on turf so far but 9L winner on Fibresand at Southwell this winter. Been in fair form overall on AW but 7lb higher than aforementioned win and less appealing back on turf.

Poor efforts over hurdles last winter led to season being curtailed quite early. Returns to the level here off a potentially winnable mark but enough doubts to look elsewhere.

Basically looked in the handicappers grasp since Lingfield win late in 2017 although quite lightly raced since. Flopped latest over 2m but will prefer this trip, still easily opposable.

Easy 1m2f winner on soft ground under today's rider late last season and not the most exposed by any means. Trip here no real concern but ground is.

Won twice over 1m2f for Tom Dascombe and left behind poor stable debut latest with good third over 1m6f at Wolverhampton. Could easily be that this is his trip then so merits respect here.

Ended time with William Haggas with first win over this trip on Polytrack at Kempton on cheek pieces. Headgear off here as he starts out for new yard but not ruled out given unexposed nature.

Won four times in extremely busy 2018 campaign but last 11 races passed by with little of note and started out this year in similar form. Best watched at present.

Both career wins over 1m when trained by Charlie Hills but seems to stay this trip well enough now. Well below level required to win however this winter so still prefer others.

In and out performer late on last season but slightly better in most recent run at Wolverhampton and changes yard since. No doubt he is on a very winnable mark now if reinvigorated although draw a big problem.

Former French trained gelding win ended last season in form winning on heavy ground at Ffos Las before a good second next at Bath. Did too much upfront in last start on AW but looks an improving sort and respected here.

Won in January at Newcastle but showed next to nothing since that and also of concern is 0-4 turf record where he hasn't shown a great deal, others preferred.

8/1

Lone win came over 1m6f on heavy ground but later last season he proved to be every bit as effective over 1m4f and on quicker ground. Only beaten 1L last time on this mark so capable if fit first time back.

Ten-time AW winner less prolific on turf but hasn't been beaten far of late on AW and is certainly now on a mark to go well. Race fit and a decent each way chance.

Nine-race maiden ran well on handicap debut but form soon tailed off afterwards. Hard to be anything but pessimistic now.

Nine-race maiden shown some bits and pieces since joining this yard but likely to strike at a lower level if at all.

Dual bumper winner in 2017 but flat form far less compelling and beaten out of sight on recent stable debut. Easily swerved.

Four-time point-to-point winner actually ran with some credit on the level over 2m latest but would have been better served if able to run off true mark.

Betting

Forecast

Cristal Spirit (7/2), Ormesher (7/1), Looking For Carl (15/2), Country'n'western (8/1), Master Grey (8/1), Ascot Day (9/1), Butterfield (10/1), Extreme Appeal (11/1), Grandscape (11/1), Makambe (12/1), Take Two (12/1), Luv U Whatever (12/1), Party Royal (12/1), Bit Of A Quirke (16/1), Gravity Wave (20/1), Place Des Vosges (20/1), Punkawallah (20/1), Attain (22/1), Arcadian Sea (25/1), Belabour (33/1), Essenaitch (50/1), Nabhan (66/1), Scottsdale (100/1)

Verdict

In a wide-open and very difficult handicap a chance is taken on ORMESHER whose hurdles exploits this winter would suggest he ought to be able to strike off this sort of mark back on the level. Others of appeal include Ascot Day who ended 2018 in progressive form and Punkawallah who is unexposed over this trip but likely to be best suited by it.
