Formscan - Glory Bridge seemed to benefit from a first-time tongue-tie on his most recent outing over this C&D when keeping on for second, and he can build on that in handicap company. However, HALF THE FREEDOM secured a facile victory last time out, also over C&D, and commands respect given Jamie Brace's 6lb claim negates all of the gelding's 5lb rise. Ivetwiggedit makes her handicap debut dropping in trip and completes the shortlist.
