Down Time beat MOONSHINE RIDGE by just over three lengths when making his all-weather debut over track and trip two weeks ago and is actually a pound better off given the runner-up picked up a penalty form winning easily over a shorter trip here last week. But Simon Walker's presence in the saddle on Alan Swinbank's charge is a massive plus and the five-year-old can turn the tables. Goal has been in better form over hurdles lately at a modest level but The Ducking Stool has her first run since October and has a shocking record on the all-weather. Weybridge Light is hard to predict and isn't getting any younger.
