The handicapper hasn't been kind to Any Given Moment raising him 9lb for a recent victory over a longer trip here and that looks enough to prevent a follow up. Via Archimede led for most of the way over 2m7f here last month, only fading from two out, so he should be ideally suited by today's trip and can go well. Lisdonagh House hasn't had much chance in his two runs this season and is still 6lb higher than when scoring at Newcastle in April. DIZZY RIVER was raised 8lb for his victory over today's trip at Sedgefield but produced a good subsequent effort in a better event over a longer trip at Aintree and can get back to winning ways.
