In depth

Verdict

Fair Bramble has gone close at Exeter and Wetherby this season and should be in the firing-line if blinkers bring about a little further improvement. But TODAREISTODO has already won twice here and is probably worth another chance to shine with Harry Bannister taking off a valuable 7lb. Bill The Lad is another course and distance winner but Trozulon isn't getting any better and Riddlestown is still struggling to take advantage of a tumbling mark, though did finish ahead of Thorncliffer at Huntingdon earlier this month.
