Money Team only faded in the closing stages of his debut over 6f at Bath last week having raced up with the pace. Today's minimum trip should suit on that evidence but RURAL CELEBRATION is preferred. David O'Meara's filly just failed to catch the winner over 5f at Wolverhampton on her debut and should take care of Native Falls and Pavers Bounty on that showing. Lomond Lassie's breeding suggests a longer trip will suit in time and Reet Thicknstrong makes more appeal of the newcomers as she's related to three winners who all scored as two-year-olds.
