Ben Case had a big winner at Punchestown on Saturday and is a rare visitor here. His string are running well and MOSS ON THE MILL may be the answer to a trick handicap as he'd looked a progressive stayer prior to find the ground too lively at Stratford last time. Solstice Son rattled up a hat-trick in March but the handicapper appeared to catch up with him at Uttoxeter last time and he's gone up a further 3lb since. Vif Argent has a penalty for Thursday's course victory and the extra yardage could also be a problem while Pistol has been chasing. Jaunty Journey is rarely far away but had every chance at Perth 10 days ago and is 2lb higher now - he may have to settle for a place again.
