Moorland Sunset became disappointing over hurdles but only found one too good on his chasing bow at Southwell. Moorlands Jack was also second at Plumpton last time and Midnight Lyra won at Fontwell last month, though is 6lb higher and upped in class here. MOLESKIN hasn't had much racing considering his age and didn't do a lot wrong when making his comeback over 3m at Kempton. He won over hurdles here in 2009 and may be worth chancing in this as Last Shot isn't easy to catch right and hasn't raced since May.
