Verdict

WAR BRIGADE has been expensive to follow this season but he has been on the wrong side of some close finishes. He is running really well at the moment and off the same mark as his recent second place finish at Ripon, he can record his opening success of the year here. Battle Of Willis may need to find more to score again off an 8lb rise in the weights, however, he is sure to be in contention at the finish, while Emenem was back to winning ways last time at Sandown and shouldn't be too far away in this contest.
  1. War Brigade
