Verdict

Enhancer who is held in high regard by his shrewd trainer is taken to maintain his unbeaten record despite giving weight to all of his rivals, with conditions again in his favour. Moonlit Harbour won well on his debut at this course when defeating Sister Anna despite running green in the closing stages. He is sure to have learnt from the experience and is another who could go well. Pass Me By was a good winner on his debut and he held every chance until being badly hampered at Carlisle last time out. He is better than that bare form suggests and it would be no surprise if he to were involved in the finish. Web Master was third on his debut at Ayr behind Monet's Garden and he is another that is sure to improve. Sir Rowland Hill is a Kahyasi gelding from a top yard and is worth a cautionary look in the market.
