Midas Moment wasn't disgraced on her reappearance over 1m here last month and the return to a longer trip should bring about further improvement. Willie Muir's filly makes more appeal than Yarmouth third Silver Alliance, but UNDERSTORY should strip fitter for his comeback run at Kempton and is starting to look well treated. It would be no surprise if Tim McCarthy's gelding came out on top today if he can overcome his wide draw. Lisahane Bog is much nearer the inside rail but is difficult to win with nowadays and may have to settle for a place again. New River may be capable of better this year and could be the pick of the remainder.
