Get it On to be rewarded for consistency

Evan Williams has been in good form in the past few months and his Get it On is selected to land Stratford's featured Birmingham Post Handicap Chase at 3.50.
The 7-y-o is a versatile type campaigned over both hurdles and fences. He has largely held his form since scoring over fences at Sedgefield in September and was a creditable third over fences on his penultimate start. The promising Conor Ring takes off a very handy 10lb and he can assert in the closing stages on the soft ground that suits ideally.
Main danger for the £12,500 prize money is from the in-form Nobunga. He is finally living up to promise he showed over hurdles in 2010/11, winning a novice at Ludlow in April and a warm handicap here in June. The step up in trip didn't suit last time and this will be much more to his liking, however he is now much higher in the weights and the Venetia Williams stable has gone quiet as the wet weather has arrived.
Topweight Passato loves it round this unique turning/undulating course and should be freshened up after 99 days on the sidelines with Paddy Brennan a good booking. The 8-y-o is still paying the price for winning four handicaps in 2010 and may need a bit of leniency from the handicapper before he is to get his head in front, and lumping 11-12 will not be easy in these testing conditions.
Tempting Paradise seems the second string for the Williams stable. He won at Uttoxeter in May when the ground was much quicker, and usually struggles to fence fluently when raised in class. This slower ground is also against him and a career best effort is required for him to feature.
Outsider Deans Grange is a consistent if weak-finishing handicap hurdler/chaser who made a winning return at Newton Abbot in May (overly fast pace up front collapsed and he was able to cruise clear on the bridle). He typically failed to see his race out last time and usually cries enough at the business end.
In summary, a tight handicap but clear preference is for Get it On. He remains unexposed over fences and will handle the deep ground better than most. At around 3-1 this morning he is worth a decent win investment.
