Midlander looked a certain future winner after his first two starts but disappointed when a short-priced favourite at Chester and has a big weight to carry. Lady Moscou was narrowly beaten in her two opening runs before opening her account at Nottingham where she stayed on gamely. Flatcapper led at a strong pace before collared inside the final furlong over Beverley's stiff 7f so this should prove ideal. DRAGLINE was a 20/1 chance in a four-horse affair at Haydock but made Divine Law pull out all the stops. That was his first sign of ability and there could be more to come so he's given the nod in a tricky race.
