2.32:The Ogle Gogle Man
Last year's winner Wind Of Hope is respected after an encouraging third at Sedgefield recently but preference is for The Ogle Gogle Man (nap), who returned to winning ways on the same course last Sunday on his third run for Iain Jardine. The lightly raced Gold Clermont is one to watch in the betting now up in distance, while Oliver's Island was disappointing in his hat-trick bid last time but isn't written off today.
The one that appeals most is Roger Varian's Moraaheq(nap), who put in a dominant display in a Kempton maiden on his return last month and has plenty of scope for further progress upped to 1m on his handicap debut. The main threat could come from another thrice-raced colt in No Recollection, who ended his 2yo campaign with a last-gasp success as favourite in a Wolverhampton handicap.
The Dai Burchell-trained nine-year-oldFuriously Fast(nap) bumped into a progressive subsequent winner when second over course and distance in December and, with today's less testing ground almost certainly in his favour, he can go one better. Grand Turina also finished second here on his latest outing and is feared most but Where Eagles Dare shaped with promise over hurdles here on last month's stable debut and looks quite interesting on today's chasing debut.
There doesn't seem to be any need to look beyond last year's winner Castlegrace Paddy(nap), back at a track he appreciates and with question marks over all of his rivals. Daly Tiger looks next best.
This will be a different ball game compared to Plumpton 12 days ago but Natural History(nap) remains unexposed over hurdles and still looks well handicapped on his Flat form. He's one to follow in this sphere. Second choice is Langer Dan, who caught the eye last time and has slipped to a favourable mark. At bigger odds One True King and Hasanabad are suggestions for the shortlist, but there are several others who can also be seriously considered.
This isn't overloaded with pace which would count against topweight Summerghand who otherwise has sound claims. Zarzyni looks just the type his new trainer will do well with and he needs a close look in the market, while both Brian The Snail and Juan Les Pins can have their case argued. The most interesting runner, and by some way, is Repartee(nap). He's won first time out in both his two seasons of racing, has been gelded since last seen and could be the type to benefit from some headgear.
