Verdict

MOSSEY JOE is in a different league to these which is why he's having to concede weight all round but if this were a handicap he would have to give much more away. Although he's never fulfilled the promise he showed as a hurdler and novice chaser he's come back to form and could hardly have won a similar race at Gowran last month in more impressive fashion. Zest For Life runs the occasional decent race but rarely wins but winning hurdler Nodouraboura landed an open point in good style at Horse And Jockey and is one of the few with scope. Festive Affair is only a youngster and lacks the experience of the selection but gets plenty of weight and is one for forecast-backers.
