Forecast

Brewers Project (4/7), Northofthewall (2/1), Royal Crown (7/2), Fanfaron Dino (8/1), Olly Golly (14/1), Kapitaliste (33/1), Bretney (40/1), Deliverance (100/1), Just Henny (100/1)

Verdict
BREWERS PROJECT performed well on his belated Rules debut at Newbury last time out and he is taken to register his first victory since joining Paul Nicholls by taking the opening novice hurdle. The selection can see off Northofthewall, the sole penalised runner in the field who drops in grade having contested a Listed handicap on his most recent outing while third place can go to Royal Crown who should appreciate this step up in trip.
  1. Brewers Project
  2. Northofthewall
  3. Royal Crown
