Verdict

A very modest contest, and realistically only a couple of these horses sport obvious winning chances. Pinch Of Ginger was awarded a much talked about race at Bangor in early January, but he's hardly rock-solid overall, although he mightn't necessarily need to be in this company, and he does have Brian Hughes booked to ride. However, we'll chance the Oliver Greenall trained rules chasing debutant ASKING QUESTIONS. He remains a maiden over hurdles (0 from 7), but is clearly effective on most types of ground, and is seemingly untroubled by racing over both 2m4f and 3m.
