An open-looking handicap in which several have decent claims. Jaunty Journey has fallen to a decent mark while Basoda had veteran Eleazar behind when fifth at Kempton last time. Tafika won at Leicester in December and was placed in his next two starts while Mohi Rahrere has won twice around here and came back to form at Bangor last month. They are preferred to Mission Complete, who returns from a break, and Tarraco but MORNING MOMENT looked a nice prospect a couple of years ago, though things haven't quite gone planned over the last 18 months. However, he's a course winner with winning form on good to firm ground and Jonathan Bailey takes off 7lb today. If the faster going sparks a revival, he could be very well treated and represent a bit of value.
