Gunmoney was easily beaten in a match at Huntingdon last time and may be a bit flattered by his form figures. Mister Teddy fell here 12 days ago but can't be ignored and Blazing Whale could be on an upward curve. QUANTUM THEORY was a little quirky when first arriving from Ireland but he's settled in well at Gary Hanmer's yard now and he's won three of his last five starts between the flags. He's never won under Rules but can put that right today as he'll get every assistance from the saddle. Illicit Illusion is only a six-year-old so could have more scope than most, though this is a step up in class.
