The Osteopath makes a swift reappearance after finishing sixth at Thirsk on Saturday but is high enough in the weights at present. European Dream will like the ground but has become disappointing and more interesting is Moheebb, one of four course winners in the race and a fair third at Ripon nine days ago. TOTO SKYLLACHY finished just behind the latter at Ripon but was forced to race wide throughout, conceding ground in the process. He's better than that and now only a pound higher than when successful over C&D last summer so gets the nod. Richard Fahey's pair, Arabian Spirit and Gritstone, may be best of the rest ahead of Icy Blue.
