Ryan Moore may well have had a few winners on the card by now and the front running HARVARD N YALE can provide another. He went close in a conditions race at Newbury in September having won his maiden at Newmarket and can return to winning ways today. Prince Alzain will be no pushover, however, as he won nicely over C&D last month and both placed horses have subsequently won, but Dr Albert will do well to get anywhere near the two principals.
