Testing steps up from a mile on her return to action and has to come into the reckoning. But FULL MOON FEVER showed promise to finish third on his recent debut over 1m3f at Kempton with Gallic Destiny a couple of lengths further behind. Ed Walker's charge gets the nod to open his account. Moriond was still beaten eight lengths when making the frame on his latest start and blinkers are applied for the first-time. Lower Lake seemed to be given an easy introduction at Chantilly last year when trained in France and is worth noting on his first start for new connections.
