Equidae’s recent improved efforts came in testing going and MURAADEF is preferred on today’s ground. Ruth Carr’s charge may have fallen far enough down the weights to finally open his account judged on a recent second over track and trip and he gets the vote. Frankster is another creeping closer as he slides down the weights while The Stalking Moon is usually thereabouts over 7f and headgear is applied today. Tarnhelm landed a double over 6f here last month but has failed to convince on previous attempts at today’s trip while Tom’s Anna has only won once and that was back in 2013.
