TEMPLIER went well here last time, finishing third in a similar contest. His form has gradually improved and it wouldn’t take a lot more to get off the mark.
The Brothers took a step forward when third at Wincanton latest. He goes off the same mark and won’t be far away again.
OK CORRAL is taking a step up in distance here and should relish it. After winning on his debut around here he probably improved when going down in a tight finish at Newbury.
There should be a lot more to come and he’s the one to beat. Chosen Path was badly hampered when unseating at Exeter last time after looking impressive on debut at Fontwell.
MODUS was good enough to win a Grade 2 at Wincanton two starts ago before falling at Exeter last time out. He can put that setback behind him and was good enough to finish sixth in the Coral Cup over timber at Cheltenham last year.
Max Ward has lost his way a little but likes it here and can sneak into second.
SMART BOY runs off the same mark as his solid third at Huntingdon last time out. That was over today’s distance and he goes on ground with a bit of cut in it.
Broken Quest has had just four runs over hurdles and was impressive when scoring latest. More the same would see him go close.
BRANDON HILL has some decent form in the book and went well from the front here last time out. The handicapper has left his mark alone and his best form has come over this trip.
Bigbadjohn has tumbled down the weights so watch for a market move on this debut for Nigel Twiston-Davies.
Some nice newcomers are on show here so watch the betting for clues. GOLD BLADE comes from a nice family and Nicky Henderson usually has his bumper runners fit for their debut.
Commanche Red looks the best of those with racecourse experience.
This looks similar to the first division as the newcomers are the most interesting contenders.
Henderson has a live chance again with Lyndsays Lad but RENWICK from the Skeltons gets the nod. He was an expensive buy and should know his job.
