MOSCOW PRESENTS won comfortably over this trip at Towcester before beaten at long odds-on at Carlisle when tackling 2m4f. He has a penalty to carry here but can get back to winning ways. The four-year-old Runswick Royal is also penalised for a recent victory at Sedgefield but he's on the upgrade and looks sure to make his presence felt. Wake Your Dreams ran very well behind Whispering Gallery at Leicester then appeared to find 2m3f stretching his stamina in a better race at Market Rasen. This looks more his trip and grade so he's on the shortlist as is winning Irish point-to-pointer Clondaw Knight, who makes his hurdling debut.
