Verdict

A point-to-point winner last month, MOSS CLOUD has been purchased by Trevor Hemmings and won't have to be anything special to land this on his debut under Rules. Winged Crusader looks the best of those with experience as he finished well behind Seebright last time but the latter has subsequently won again. Tough Trade failed to step up on his debut effort when fourth at Catterick and Alfapoint also disappointed last time after showing a glimpse of promise on his introduction at Sedgefield. Meadowcroft Boy is the first foal of a hurdles winner and could prove best of the rest.
