Verdict

BRACKEN BRAE scored over track and trip last time and is partnered by the leading amateur in Simon Walker, who rode last year’s winner. Icebuster went close over today’s distance at Lingfield last month and has been placed under today’s rider before while the unexposed Bostonian was beaten only a length when fourth at Kempton last time and steps up in distance. Tingo In The Tale has just the one win on the all-weather so far and that was back in 2012.
