Verdict

Moscow Mule beat Tom O'Tara by five lengths over course and distance eight days ago but is burdened with a 7lb penalty today. The runner-up could reverse that running, though still tends to race too freely. KAYFTON PETE has yet to win over fences but this is his level and he's gone close off similar marks in the past. Successful in a selling hurdle at Market Rasen last month, this might be his day. Orang Outan won at Huntingdon last month but probably needs further than this and veterans Share Option and Crack At Dawn appear on the downgrade.
