OMNIPOTENT looks another interesting contender for the Hughes/Hannon team, being totally unexposed and inhabiting what looks a decent mark for his handicap bow. He showed up quite nicely at Lingfield on his seasonal reappearance and can improve past some battle-hardened but low grade handicappers. Mr Udagawa scored very readily here last time and a repeat of that effort affords him obvious claims, whilst Bidable, third that day, goes well here with three course wins to his name already. Fleetwoodsands is useful in this grade on his day but is rather inconsistent and all wins have so far arrived on Polytrack. Ashkalara was back to form last time when just touched off here and will get involved in reproducing that level.
