Callisto Moon is being kept busy but hasn't won over hurdles since he was a three-year-old. Ullswater appears to be in the handicapper's grip now and all of Surf And Turf's recent form is over fences, though he's rated 7lb lower over timber. Conditions won't bother AMOK and, as he still has plenty of scope over hurdles, Tim Vaughan's charge is taken to make a winning reappearance. Pyleigh Lass probably needs further but Ray Diamond has each-way claims again on his recent third here over a shorter trip.
