MOORLANDS JACK's victory here last month last month looks decent form. The second has won since while the third only found one too good at Huntingdon last week. Quadrato went close twice last month over hurdles but makes his debut over fences today while Lemon's Gent has his first start since winning at Uttoxeter in May. Nicks Power and Tough Talkin Man may be the pick of the remainder.
