The Sportsman's Verdict
All-weather regular Cold Harbour was a winner at Southwell earlier this month and is respected switching to turf off a 4lb higher mark. Roar was second over course and distance last time and can make the frame once again following a 2lb rise. However, preference is for Ian Williams' WAR BRIGADE, who has been kept busy over hurdles through the winter, but more importantly was a solid performer in this sphere over this trip last summer, landing a similar contest at Newbury off a not-too-different rating. The selection's stablemate Jawshan and course-and-distance winner Contrebasse are others to consider.
