    Verdict

    Gary Moore has sent out three winners in only four renewals of this. But none won under a penalty and Knocknanuss has his work cut out having won over track and trip back in May and being well beaten here when second a fortnight ago. Stablemate Now Listen Here did well to finish third at Fontwell considering his saddle slipped and he could be in the mix but the three-year-old LISP makes more appeal receiving weight from all after finishing runner-up at Fontwell last month on his hurdling debut. Not A Role Model is another likely improver along with the former Joseph O’Brien inmate Dream Baie.
