Earth Tremor has been an expensive horse to follow in the past and having disappointed once again on his most recent visit to the racecourse, it may be prudent to look elsewhere. FOUNDRY SQUARE was predictably put in at short odds on his first start for Nigel Twiston-Davies but that didn't stop his backers forcing him into a shade of odds-on. The prolific scorer in point-to-points found one too good on that occasion and given that the third placed runner was some 27 lengths back, one can presume that those losses are merely lent. Bravo Bravo looked the sort who could make up into a decent hurdler though his recent results have not impressed. Watch And Praey was well held here in June though ran as if he would come on for the experience.
