Verdict

In a race where it's hard to be confident about many, a chance is taken on BROOKSWAY FAIR who failed to make an impact in novice hurdles in the autumn but won a point in Ireland and has scope for improvement now handicap chasing. Ben Brody could provide the chief threat if returning to the form of his comfortable defeat of Flight To Nowhere at Warwick on New Year's Eve.

  1. BROOKSWAY FAIR (IRE)
  2. BEN BRODY (IRE)
  3. FLIGHT TO NOWHERE
