MUDITA MOMENT landed a hat trick when successful at Huntingdon last time. He's up another 5lb but may have another win in him before the assessor catches up. Hellorboston should give the selection a race having found only one too good on his last three outings. The latter drops back in trip today and makes more appeal than Flemensmix, a close-up fourth over 2m at Wincanton recently. Forgivienne made a promising start at Ludlow only to disappoint in heavy ground at the same track last time.
