Verdict

It's A Mans World has had seven different trainers but has still managed to win 10 races, though he was beaten off this mark when last seen in October and is probably as high as he wants to go. Bygones Of Brid won twice over fences last summer and will be suited by today's better ground but Looking On hasn't seen a racecourse for almost a year and may just need the run. Sud Pacifique hasn't won since 2012 but is consistent enough which is why he's still high enough in the ratings. Bob's World was in tremendous form at this time a year ago and was highly tried later but his recent form has been poor. GRATE FELLA looked a nice prospect when gaining his second victory over hurdles at Catterick on New Year's Day and though he's disappointed in two subsequent starts this better ground should suit and he's taken to get back on the winning trail.
