Verdict

MORESTEAD seems to like it here and has tumbled down the weights lately. He is 3lb lower than when runner-up over course and distance on Boxing Day and is the selection in a modest affair. Haling Park was only beaten a neck at Towcester last month but is a long standing maiden and My Boy Ginger has more scope. He's been quite highly tried over hurdles so far and should do better now going handicapping. The remainder make little appeal.
