Verdict

WAR BRIGADE (NAP) just came up short over 1m3f at Goodwood last week. A winner over hurdles over the winter, there are no going concerns for Ian Williams’ charge and he can pick up the winning thread again aided by first-time cheekpieces. Master Dancer hinted at a revival over hurdles last month but Searching has been hard to predict this year. Heron does have placed form on heavy ground but has done his winning an the all-weather so far. Battle Of Issus probably has more on his plate that at Hamilton off a 4lb higher mark but Steaming continues to slip down the weights.
