There are sure to be plenty of eyes upon Jamie Piggott as the rider attempts to have a red letter day aboard Captain Moonlite but he may have to wait a little longer for his first winner as HARLEM SHAKE has plenty to like about him in the opener. Ger Lyons' gelding is tried in cheekpieces rather than blinkers tonight, and having proven he stays seven furlongs, it'll take a decent performance to beat him. Fix It and Ava Star were behind the selection when they met at Roscommon though connections appear happy to reoppose despite being no better off at the weights. Paul Flynn has had a couple of National Hunt winners of late so any market confidence behind Jackie Ellis would be interesting.
