We finish as we started with a tight handicap but after only finding a couple of potentially smart sorts too good last time CHERISH THE MOMENT looks well treated on his first run in these ranks and gets our confidence marginally ahead of Reset City and Count Of Tuscany. The pair that easily held our selection last time have both gone on to confirm their promise and while that is good form it's his performance when only finding one too good two runs back that suggests his mark might be a little light. Trainer Andy Haynes works hard at placing his charges and his filly Reset City also looks to be carrying a fair burden on the pick of her form and she should also be seen in a good light now racing in these conditions. Count Of Tuscany has been consistent in maidens without pulling up any tress and it's not clear if his rating is correct while Beauchamp Xiara has looked progressive and also looks weighted to challenge. This handicap is about the newcomers to this sphere and out of those Cherish The Moment looks best treated.
