A decent affair in Yorkshire with the vote going to Gary Moore’s gelding, who looked overextended at Sandown Park in a Listed contest back in March which ended his five-race winning streak.

He was in fine vein prior to that, however, and should fare better now back down in trip for the southern-based yard.

This looks like it could be at the mercy of Nicky Richards’ gelding, who finished a fine second back in October behind a potentially handy sort, so has experience and race fitness to boot.

His Bangor-on-Dee second has worked out well and with a run under his belt in this sphere a month ago, he will likely be tough to beat under Danny McMenamin.

Rory And Me took the silver medal over track-and-trip on his only hurdles start to date, but that was twelve months ago and the lack of an outing since is a bit of a concern.
