The 3m trip at Doncaster last time seemed beyond African Broadway, but he'd won two of his three previous starts and today's distance should be within his compass. He has to give plenty of weight to OSCAR DAVY here, however, and Philip Hobbs' charge can take advantage after posting a good effort at Exeter when last seen. Brough Academy should also be thereabouts having scored over 2m3f in testing ground at this track last time and that looks stronger form than Orvita's recent win at the same meeting. Greenlaw looks best of the remainder after a promising hurdles debut at Doncaster.
