Verdict

Trouble In Paris finished runner-up in a point-to-point but hasn't shown much under Rules and though Beaney Tunes was successful between the flags at Stradbally that was back in April 2011. Moscow Presents is looking a nice prospect having improved with every run. He looked certain to be suited by a longer trip when scoring over the minimum at Carlisle and will take some beating but the concession of almost two stone to MADAM LILIBET may prove beyond him. Joseph Palmowski was gaining his first success when Sharon Watt's charge was found an easy opportunity at Newcastle and though she faces a very strong opponent here she may just be up to the task.
