MARLOS MOMENT has been dropped a pound since finishing third over 1m4f at the Curragh. The step back up in distance and heavy ground will suit and Jim Culloty's charge can return to winning ways getting 20lb from the consistent Leah Claire. Moveable Asset and King Of The Picts aren't without a chance but Whatuthink have been well beaten twice over hurdles since winning at Leopardstown in July and may be too high in the weights. Golan Go's three wins last year were all over this trip but he didn't reappear until earlier this month and may need another run to put him straight.
