Hallstatt should be winning again soon off his current mark but it may not be today as he comes up against the progressive MONEY MONEY MONEY. The latter ran out a cosy winner over C&D earlier this month and a 7lb rise may not be enough to prevent a follow-up. Blackstone Vegas has solid claims and the beating of Miles Of Sunshine on the evidence of recent running over 2m here, while better is expected from last month's C&D winner Storm Hawk after he found the longer trip beyond him on his latest start.
