Ryan Moore takes over the reins on his father's GAELIC SILVER and the eight-year-old can get back to winning ways. His latest third in a handicap over track and trip is by far the best recent form on offer and there are question marks surrounding most of his rivals at present. Officer In Command is held on the form book and The Mongoose is better over 7f but Abigails Angel was third over 1m2f here last time and would be a danger at the weights on past form.
