I thought GAME SOCKS (best price 10-3) was a bit of an eye-catcher when runner-up at Ludlow last month back from a 220-day absence. He just kept on at the one pace in the closing stages but had moved through the race like a horse potentially ahead of his mark. He is entitled to strip fitter from that and coming back down in trip slightly should help. If he can iron out any errors and put in a fluent round he definitely has the ability to win this and I think he’ll go off clear fav come post time. Go Steady remains a maiden over hurdles but has done well over fences and returns over timber off a lower mark so has to enter calculations. Largy G definitely upped her form to finish third to Dragon Bones on final start last season and if she builds on that on return she should also land some sort of a blow. Apple Rock is a fair yardstick but has enough to prove after that Cheltenham run even if this does represent a drop in grade.
