612-2OR: 128CD
5/4

Already a three-time course winner and effortlessly stepped up to this trip with a win at Ffos Las earlier this month; the penalties are mounting up after three straight victories (all UK wins under Richard Johnson) but is again the one to beat.

20/1

Plenty of experience over hurdles and won twice back in the springtime; held in handicaps lately and has a lot to find on the official ratings against the progressive Irish raider, Braid Blue; won't mind a bit of give underfoot though.

510-12OR:
250/1

Open to improvement but needs to do exactly that after falling here on hurdles debut last time out; previous bumper form was poor and had been pulled up in two point-to-points prior to that. Faces a stiff test.

4/5

Gets plenty of weight and has notably been in flying form over fences lately; good chance on the ratings but hasn't raced over timber for over four years, so there has to be reservations about his agility over timber. The betting can guide.

Betting

Forecast

Indian Temple (4/5), Braid Blue (5/4), Little Millie (20/1), Forresters Park (250/1)

Verdict

BRAID BLUE has already proved he likes this course and notably responds well for champion jockey, Richard Johnson, who renews acquaintances with the progressive six-year-old; the partnership has to concede plenty of weight to Indian Temple, who has thrived over fences lately; the gelding has a good attitude and can make sure there is a strong tempo. However, a strong pace will ideally suit the selection and he's going to hard to resist in his bid for a four-timer. Little Millie has more experience than Forresters Park but will need a lot to go her way for her to add to her tally.
