9/2

Better on most recent start in a maiden hurdle despite still refusing to settle in the early stages. Makes handicap debut now but would probably prefer some more give in the ground.

Ran a nice race on handicap debut at Wincanton last time out on very testing ground. Slight concern back on a sounder surface but still holds leading claims off the same handicap mark.

Not totally disgraced in three starts over hurdles so far. More needed now handicapping but has some potential, just might find this opening mark a little too high.

Has recently relished a drop in class to around this level running two solid races in defeat. Should appreciate conditions and is on a more suitable handicap mark now.

Has had his moments on the Flat but yet to show much in handicap hurdles and badly needs to take advantage of a quickly sinking mark.

8/1

Yet to build on the promise he showed in bumpers in novice/maiden hurdles. Goes handicapping now and the drop in trip is a positive off what looks a fair opening mark.

Has won on the Flat/in a bumper but yet to score over hurdles. May need the run after a long absence and change of stables but has been dropped a useful 7lb.

Put in a couple of good efforts in maiden/novice events but well held in two handicaps so far and is down only 3lb here.

Off the mark over hurdles two starts ago and ran okay before falling last time. Has previous gone well at this course and enters calculations off this mark (unchanged from last time).

16/1

Makes his belated stable debut here and clearly has his issues following a previous long absence, but has shown the ability to suggest he should be able to win a handicap at this level at some point. Cheek pieces on.

Off the mark over hurdles three starts ago at Taunton, not particularly impressive either over hurdles or on the Flat since and still may find this handicap mark a little bit ambitious.

Won a bumper two years ago but not at that level in just four starts since. Makes his handicap debut here but tough to fancy after a 67L defeat last time out.

Made a step in the right direction at a huge price at Kempton last time after some very poor efforts, but needs another big step forward to figure here.

Betting

Forecast

Bolving (7/2), Sir Egbert (9/2), No Hiding Place (8/1), The Brothers (8/1), Le Capricieux (10/1), Shining Romeo (10/1), Level Of Intensity (10/1), Templier (10/1), Mellow Ben (12/1), King Cnut (16/1), Tobacco Road (16/1), Church Leap (16/1), Tikken Away (20/1), Alberta (25/1)

Verdict

The Brothers ran well in testing conditions at Wincanton last time but this better ground is a concern and preference is for TEMPLIER. After posting two eye-catching efforts in handicaps the last twice he appears to have turned a corner and this could be a good opportunity to get off the mark given a lot of these have a couple of questions to answer. Gary Moore's other runner Le Capricieux could be best of the rest.
