Verdict

Moonlight Drive and Storming Gale both had decent form over hurdles last season, the former thought good enough to contest a Grade 1 novices event at The Festival in March. Both should make their mark over fences while it will be interesting to see how Mcmurrough fares after a lay-off as he was highly regarded in his younger days. Ballyallia Man has won between the flags but the jury is still out on Sir Tamburlane and Nodforms Violet. CARPINCHO was significantly well backed on his reappearance in a decent contest at Chepstow but ran as though the run was needed. He'll strip fitter here and can recoup losses for the in-form Sarah Humphrey team.
