GLEN MOSS has the best form in the book having finished runner-up on all three starts. He's yet to encounter today's fast ground and it could prove the key to Charlie Hills' colt getting his head in front. Chicarito showed some improvement at Haydock last time, but Yes It's The Boy makes more appeal with a recent debut at Wolverhampton under his belt. Moataz cost £35,000 and, as a half-brother to a winner, he's preferred to fellow newcomer Desert Philosopher.
