Verdict

Mr Moondance has been knocking on the door in Ireland and shouldn't be far away in a race like this. Jinsha Lake won at Towcester in May but reverted to type shortly after at Uttoxeter and has been off the track since. Our Three Sons could do with some help from the handicapper but Page Fuller's claim here will help. SKYLARK LADY faces older horses for the first time but the three-year-old appears to have taken well to hurdling and has a massive weight-for-age allowance in handicaps at this time of year.
