Verdict

Mister Wall Street has been very lightly raced since completing a double in 2011 and hasn't regained his form. Bob's Dream won a similar grade handicap here in November but ran poorly at Catterick the following month. Dropzone has had just two runs over fences and shown only moderate form while Hotgrove Boy has had 22 career starts and is still a maiden. Forestside has run 20 times over fences without winning but can hardly go any lower in the ratings and is consistent enough to get into the frame. FORCE OF HABIT had been beaten out of sight in most races before an unexpected second place behind Dark And Dangerous at Catterick and, if continuing in that frame of mind, can go one better.
