Verdict

Pinch of Ginger has attracted plenty of trade column inches since his controversial 'success' at Bangor earlier in the month, but he makes the shortlist off just 3lb higher, and should go well especially if the application of first time cheek-pieces further enhances his rather sketchy fencing technique. Brown Trix lurks as a possible market springer at the foot of the handicap, but 2017 winner Major Ridge makes precious little appeal based upon his subsequent performances. Spirit of Hale could potentially make the frame tackling this trip for the first time, but the vote swings towards RONNIE LAWSON. Chasing clearly seems to agree with this nine-year-old three time point-to-point winner, and a reproduction of his latest effort at Southwell in early December is likely to prove good enough in a low-key affair.
