Lord of The Reins looks a stand-out bet here and he is nominated over Rebel Duke and Black Moma. The selection arrives here right on top of his game and after winning twice, he has gone close on his two subsequent starts. He is poorly drawn here which is a negative, but granted a bit of luck in-running he will be hard to beat. Rebel Duke put up a fair effort in a seller at Musselburgh last time when chasing home Monashee Brave. He is a course and distance winner and he should be capable of running into a place. Black Moma finished in mid-division in a handicap at Lingfield last time, but she has got winning form in this grade and her yard are in fair form at present so she is worth considering. Wibbadune looks the best of those with a good low draw, while Valley Of The Moon can also go well at a price. However, Lord of The Reins has been running consistently well and can get his head in front.
