The Brock Again comes across as a winner waiting to happen over jumps given the way he travels through his races, but as he’s yet to put a race to bed yet and heavy ground continues to ask serious questions in that department, he’s passed over in favour of course specialist SONNY THE ONE(best price 9/4). Colin Tizzard’s charge finally gained his just rewards for several previous near misses when out-battling two persistent challengers in the latter stages of a keenly-contested 2m 7f handicap here last time out and that was off the back of a useful effort behind the progressive Waldolf Salad over the same C&D. Although the son of Toubboug takes a significant drop down in trip here today, he has plenty of good, solid form over shorter than his optimum and he’s taken to provide his rampant stable with yet another winner.

WOLOWITZ (NAP)(best price 9/4) clocked a smart time when breaking his maiden tag at Southwell back in December and providing he can make the transition from fibresand to tapeta a smooth one, David Barrons’ inmate has every chance of following up. Promising in two previous racecourse visits on turf, the son of Intense Focus showed the benefit of those initial outings with a thoroughly professional display at the Nottinghamshire venue and being as though he has the action of a horse that should appreciate a quick surface, the more speed-based nature of today’s track will hopefully play into his strengths.
