3lb higher than when scoring over C&D (good to firm) last summer - could have more too offer; interesting to see how he figures in the market off a seven month absence.

Betting

Forecast

War Brigade (7/2), Roar (4/1), Cold Harbour (9/2), Motahassen (7/1), Just Wait (8/1), Contrebasse (8/1), Ezanak (8/1), Albert Boy (10/1), Searching (10/1), Jawshan (12/1), Omotesando (20/1), Enemy Of The State (25/1), Aislabie (33/1), Paddy's Rock (50/1), Gabriel's Oboe (66/1)

Verdict

Strong numerically, but arguably less so in terms of likely winners. Roar is yet to win beyond 1m2f, but should appreciate this ease in grade and is expected to be on the premises, while recent Southwell winner Cold Harbour is noteworthy on his turf debut in the hands of the very capable Seamus Cronin. However, the suggestion is the Ian Williams-trained WAR BRIGADE who returns to the level following a largely productive winter over hurdles.
