There are question marks hanging over most of these but Any Given Moment has been staging something of a revival lately, winning at Musselburgh and finishing second at the same track nine days ago. Howizee pounced late to score at Doncaster last time but is 9lb higher here while Inoogoo tries a new trip after finishing third over 2m at Haydock. POLITICAL PADDY hasn't won since 2009 and was tailed off at Catterick last time but he's undoubtedly well handicapped nowadays and normally takes on better opposition than this. He is back over his favourite track and trip today and could go close at generous odds. Vivona Hill has had his problems but showed he retains some ability when third at Market Rasen and has each-way claims here.
