Richard Hannon has a trio of entries and Acaster Malbis, a half-brother to the Listed winner Odeliz, should prove the best of them under Richard Hughes. Aussie Ruler has been showing good pace without finding a finishing burst but WINSTANLEY has come up against the very progressive Pallister on his last two starts and hasn't been beaten far so unless there is something useful amongst the newcomers he can finally come good. Dark Profit is well regarded and took a step forward at Haydock while Mutafarrej is probably capable of better than we've seen to date. Both Lackaday and Misleading are very speedily bred while Moodrick cost €12,000 as a foal and €110,000 as a two-year-old so someone obviously saw something in him.
