Forecasts

Court Duty (5/2), As You Like (3/1), Bramble Brook (4/1), Al Shahir (4/1), Field Exhibition (5/1), Cropley (12/1), Spring Steel (20/1)

Verdict

Pluses and minuses can be found for most of the runners in a field that contains three C&D winners. Field Exhibition and As You Like both hold a decision over the quirky Bramble Brook and should be able to confirm that form given their greater tenacity within a race and at the finish. COURT DUTY put in one of his best rounds of jumping when winning over C&D so a return here may well help him over a rare fall last time; he still looks nicely weighted. Spring Steel is worth another chance to confirm his comeback form while Cropley isn’t totally out of this based on his comeback effort at Stratford.
