911-12OR: 120
6/5

Runner-up over C&D last time out and tends to do best in this sort of small-field handicap (three-time winner). As good a chance as any here.

811-11OR: 119
8/1

Yet to win for this yard (won three for Olly Murphy) and but for a second at Fontwell back in October, his form is less than compelling. Others are more likely again.

911-6OR: 114D
13/2

Three wins last season came over timber, 1-11 previously jumping fences with success coming at Worcester (2m4f, good) last summer from much lower mark.

810-6OR: 100
6/4

Runner-up four times in five starts over fences earlier in the year; now being 2-25 over fences with a dozen placed efforts. On a perfectly workable mark back from short break and entitled to go close.

Betting

Forecast

Bramble Brook (6/5), Triple Chief (6/4), Field Exhibition (13/2), Royal Plaza (8/1)

Verdict

There isn't a lot to split Bramble Brook and TRIPLE CHIEF but Bryony Frost's mount earns the call. He's getting plenty weight from his main rival and is also twice a winner on soft ground over fences, enough to sway things in his favour. The top-weight arrives in good form however and does excel in this sort of small-field scenario. Royal Plaza and Field Exhibition likely need the other pair to have off days.
