Amazon Warrior is saddled with a big weight despite never having won a race but he's still improving and was in very good form on fast ground last autumn. More Claret has been chasing and is better handicapped over hurdles while Watermelon is on the same mark as when just touched off over the C&D in June and will be better for her recent reappearance. Jackieandy appears better with some give in the ground while Clara More is another who may find conditions too quick for her. Gordon Elliott tries Laureldeans Best in first-time blinkers which could bring about some improvement but a chance is taken with MOVING ON, who is hardly consistent and has won just two out of 64 starts over hurdles but likes fast ground and this track and trip and is well enough handicapped to give a good account of himself.
