Verdict

Paul Nicholls has a 67% strike rate (four from six) with his jumps runners at Carlisle over the past five years, and his fences newcomer BRIO CONTI should have every chance of improving on those figures granted a clear round of fencing. His options over hurdles are perhaps limited from a mark of 145, as he pays the price for his Kempton success in March (raised 11lb), but he looks to have an exciting future ahead as a novice over fences, and has the clear edge today over some rivals who are likely to make their own impression over fences in slightly lesser company.
