Moon Over Rio had shown nothing, including over hurdles, before landing a poor selling handicap at Beverley for which he's been raised 5lb. Harrison's Cave hasn't won for almost three years and is probably better over further. CHILLY MISS began her career with victories in two bumpers and has been racing over much shorter trips. She was staying on over 1m2f at Newcastle last time and with more scope than these rivals can gain take this for Malcolm Jefferson and Brian Hughes. Vicky Valentine has only won once in 17 starts and Saint Thomas is likely to do better when sent back over hurdles while Call of Duty is 10lb higher than his last success at Ayr in April.
