The assessor raised MOONMEISTER 9lb for his impressive victory over a mile at Bellewstown last weekend. Gordon Elliott's charge was having just his fifth start that day and would have won even more easily but for being impeded. This trip will suit and he gets the vote to follow-up. Sharjah won here a year ago and though unsuccessful since he's definitely capable of better and is just 1lb higher so has to be on the shortlist. Gun Shoot has only won once and that was on Polytrack but he's run some good races at a similar level and it will be a surprise if he isn't thereabouts. Winning hurdler Toretto is still a maiden on the Flat and would probably be better off over further.
