CAPTAIN BROWN looks a tricky ride and Paul Moloney will have to delay his challenge until the last minute but the four-year-old has the ability to win this if in the mood. Muwalla wasn't winning out of turn at Sedgefield in May and has had a spin on the Flat recently. He may be a bigger danger than Worcester score Samtheman while Fleet Dawn, The Names Harry and Arkaim could reach a place if reproducing their best.
