Moufatango landed a gamble at Bangor in April but hasn't raced since so BANDANAMAN looks the one to beat in this. Successful at this track 12 months ago Alan Swinbank's five-year-old has been placed three times on the Flat this year, twice finishing well ahead of Word Of Warning, and can concede weight all round today. Andorn won over 2m1f here in the spring but is 7lb higher now, while Stand Clear hasn't shown a great deal in three starts this season. The others have something to prove at present.
