Verdict

Brahms De Clermont was an easy winner over C&D in a contest that didn't look the strongest on paper and, against stronger opposition here, he will need to post an improved performance if he is to defy the penalty here. Parthenius should be more suited by this tighter track having finished third to Rockalzaro at Catterick last time but the vote goes to hurdling debutant SIZING CUSIMANO, who ran well enough on ground too soft at Cheltenham on debut and the fact he had that entry in Listed company suggests connections think a fair amount of him. If Desiremoi D'authie can settle down then he rates a big player as he went off far too freely when well beaten at Ascot last time, while Show On The Road's recent second to Diese Des Bieffes could work out pretty well.

Verdict

BRAHMS DE CLERMONT has to concede weight to several promising/interesting types, but this could be a case of him putting his hurdling experience to good use. Parthenius was slightly disappointing at Catterick but is capable of better in this sphere, while Grapevine and Sizing Cusimano are interesting newcomers to this sphere.
