Right To Rule posted a decent effort when filling the minor placing in an above-average seller at Cartmel behind Cygnet and still has time on his side at the age of five, his sole hurdling success having come at Haydock back in May 2012. Nether Stream has been well beaten the last twice off higher marks incurred as a result of May and June successes but can't be discounted in an ordinary affair, likewise Moyne Nineoseven, a pleasing second to Galley Slave on his first run for new connections last time. MY NOSY ROSY comes into this with career stats of 0-15 but has performed with admirable consistency on her last four runs and can gain due reward off a feasible mark.
