Verdict

MOOSE MORAN, Oriental Cat and Caldercruix make the shortlist here, with preference for the Henry Cecil trained Moose Moran. The trainer sets a conundrum, as he saddles two runners, both with similar profiles, and although Florentine Ruler slammed his field at Ripon, that looked a weak affair. Moose Moran's maiden win has been franked with the third scoring since, and he may be well treated. Oriental Cat shaped with promise last year, and underlined that feeling when justifying favouritism at Hamilton in style, and he could be anything and is respected. Caldercruix sets a good yardstick as he has good wins in handicap company under his belt. His wins look very solid form, and although this is a step up in class, he is respected. Moose Moran can prove best in a fascinating and competitive contest.
