Verdict

Move To The Groove made all to land a decent handicap at Kelso in May but has been rested since. This is no easy task giving 14lb to MORIANOUR, who beat the 110-rated Excellent Team by five lengths at Uttoxeter last month and is still improving. Classi Massini only found the more-experienced Precision Five too good on her hurdles bow here last month but Armorous has been well beaten in all races to date.
