BRADY has only found one too good in his two starts over fences to date. He got back to winning ways over hurdles at Newcastle last month and jockey bookings suggest he's preferred to stablemate Hurraboru. The seven-year-old gets the nod here ahead of the frustrating Balding Banker and Stagecoach Jasper, who did finish second over fences at Bangor in February but has enjoyed mixed fortunes back over timber since. Jat Punjabi has to be considered on his close-up third at Ffos Las but former hunter chaser Gin Cobbler has it all to do under a penalty.
