Verdict

A tricky puzzle for punters to solve and just narrow preference is for MAX BYGRAVES ahead of Brave Broncho, Overnight and Castle Craigs. The selection is from a fair Family and his Fortunes took a turn for the better recently when he ran his best race to date at Uttoxeter. That coincided with his lowest mark to date and also the quicker ground and he should go well in a weak race. Gamma Velorum won a seller two starts back and didn't run too badly last time at Sedgefield only getting tired late on and making a mistake at the last. Brave Broncho's jumping let him down recently but that was over fences and this may be a good way to boost his confidence over the smaller obstacles, whilst Pay On is a course winner but needs to forget a recent poor showing. Forsters Plantin is unexposed, Flamed Amazement has the blinkers on for the first time, whilst Overnight showed a good attitude when winning a claiming hurdle when last seen. Soul Angel is one to watch in the betting on this comeback along with Castle Craigs who has hinted at ability this season but not gone through with it. A tough race, but Max Bygraves can win big money.
