Race Verdict

DARK MOON looks like the one that they all have to beat. This successful pointer only found a rejuvenated Amicelli too good on his hunters' chase debut at Wetherby two weeks ago and repeat performance may well be good enough here. John Dillon has 4 1/2-lengths to make up with the selection on that form so Montauk Highway is most feared under Catherine Walton, who has proved herself to be very capable on a number of occasions this season.

Selection: Dark Moon        Danger: Montauk Highway        Alternative: John Dillon
