Babysitter is more interesting now stepped up in distance, however MOORLANDS TERI also looks a strong stayer and she is preferred to Only The Best. Tim Vaughan's mare scored on her hurdling bow in October when seeing off Feel The Force at Uttoxeter. Despite the small field, that was a nice start to her career and she should run a bold race for a pilot who gets on well with her. Only The Best ran well behind Whats Up Woody at Hexham and should have no problem with this longer trip; all he looks to do is stay and he looks a big player. Moonlight Ruby could improve for the much longer trip this afternoon, as could Knight Woodsman and former point-to-point winner Babysitter. Quentin Collonges drops in grade and the longer trip looks a good move, however along with Chamirey he may struggle under his winners¿ penalty. Chaser Dream Garden has not run well in two starts this season and needs to bounce back to form, so a bigger threat may be I've Been Framed who makes his hurdling bow over a trip that could suit. Improvement to come from many makes this a tricky betting heat, but narrow preference is for Moorlands Teri.
