Verdict

Dingo Bay has become a specialist at Newcastle and has won three times there recently. He bounced back from a heavy fall to win very easily last time but a 10lb rise makes things more difficult. Oh Right scored here last month and was very well handicapped when completing a double at Doncaster a week later but has suffered in the weights as a consequence. MOONLIGHT MAGGIE didn't shown much in bumpers or over hurdles but looks much more like making a chaser despite falling at Huntingdon when travelling well. She looks better than an 80-rated handicapper and can take this. Soul Angel ran well on successive days earlier this month including over 3m3f on this track and won't be inconvenienced by dropping back in trip as his previous effort was over 2m.
