Captain Kelly beat Moon Devil over 2m6f at Ffos Las earlier this month but there may not be much to choose between the pair on today's revised terms and this is a much more competitive affair. Mister Dillon was well ahead of Sainglend when second over course and distance last time and is only a pound higher but Leath Acra Mor has been raised 9lb for his victory over 2m4f here recently and is unproven over this far. QULINTON is on a long losing run but fared a little better when third to Saint Roque over 2m4f here at the start of the month and is well treated on his best form over fences. He may enjoy a fitness advantage over the returning What An Oscar and On The Bridge while Mister Hyde would prefer a much easier surface. Hassadin looks best of the rest.
