Verdict

ORNAIS made a satisfactory reappearance when fifth over a longer trip at Wincanton last month. That should have blown away a few cobwebs and this formerly decent nine-year-old can return to winning ways here getting 8lb from It's Like That, who hasn't raced since winning on fast ground at Worcester last May. Joaaci probably isn't the force of old but Overlut is a decent performer in this type of race and Fort View is also worth a second look. Polly Gundry's charge was third in a decent contest between the flags at Charing last time and has already won over regulation fences.
