Browns Brook came good in heavy ground over track and trip last month. But left clear a couple of fences from home, he's flattered by the winning margin and has a 14lb hike to contend with. Moleskin went close at Exeter in between a couple of distinctly modest efforts but Riddlestown has struggled since scoring over these fences in October. RING BO REE posted a better effort at Wincanton on his latest start and is back on a winning mark. But Tom George's charge rates only a tentative selection to land this given he has something to prove in testing ground.
