Verdict

The Grey One is starting to run out of excuses and Louis Ludwig continues to be let down by his jumping, though is well treated on his hurdles form. Veteran Good Old Days is on a decent mark nowadays but that's because he's not the force of old, while former pointer Captain Knock has struggled in handicaps. Winning hurdler OSMOSIA makes her debut over the larger obstacles but her dam won over fences in France and Chris Gordon's mare could be worth the risk against disappointing opposition.
