Verdict

Majestic Moon rattled up a hat-trick before coming up short in this grade at York but looks in the handicapper's grip now. GOLD HUNTER very much caught the eye at Doncaster, where he met trouble in-running but stayed on strongly in the closing stages and still finished ahead of the well-backed Regal Dan and Flyman. He shouldn't have any problems getting a clear run here and can get back to winning ways as he's better handicapped than stablemate Pied A Terre and Leicester winner Mezzotint. Frontier Fighter may be better over a mile while Tariq Too has disappointed this year but Head Of Steam is back on a winning mark and could run well at decent odds.
